"I am doing my job here. This is the most unprofessional set I have ever been on! … This is garbage! Blow me," Quaid says in a video that recently surfaced online, but many are wondering if his rant is real.

A new video has surfaced of Dennis Quaid having a meltdown on set. But viewers are wondering if it's real or just an act.

In the clip, embedded below, Quaid lashes out at his co-workers, spewing profanity and insults.

The rant seems to begin after someone walks onto the set while he is trying to do a scene, much like Christian Bale's famous Terminator: Salvation on-set rant.

"I can't even get a line out until dopey the dick starts whispering in your ear," Quaid tells the director. "You're not even watching anymore!"

A voice off-camera tries to get him to calm down by saying his name repeatedly.

"Don't f—ing 'Dennis' me," Quaid shoots back. "I am doing my job here! I am a pro. This is the most unprofessional set I have ever been on. This is horse shit. I have these f—ing zombies over here that I have to look at. I have a bunch of pussies staring at me and this f—ing baby! This is garbage! Blow me."

It's unclear what project Quaid was working on when this incident took place or if the whole rant is even real or staged. Some have suggested that it's just a stunt for Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the latest in the talk show's series of fake videos.

Quaid most recently filmed the Dan Rather biopic Truth. He's also starring in and executive producing a new one-hour drama series, The Art of More, for Crackle, which was announced Tuesday as part of the streaming service's upfront announcement. The Art of More, about the cutthroat world of private auction houses, is set to premiere next winter, with 10 episodes ordered.

Quaid's reps have not yet responded to The Hollywood Reporter's request for comment.
