When the other actors came boiling up behind him, he put his hands on the doorframe to either side so none of them could get past.
Something came twisting forward to hit the doorframe, it dropped just inside the doorjamb.

He took his post by the doorframe again, the tip of his nose just outside.
A seething anger began slowly to gather in Joe's chest, and he held on to the doorframe to steady himself.
