play detective vs. play the detective?

Mensaje por Johneames » 18 Nov 2017 07:58

Can you please tell me if it's correct to include 'the' in this type of structure or if it should always be omitted?. I have come across idioms such as 'play devil's advocate' that sometimes are used with 'the' and sometimes without it so I suppose it's a matter of personal preference? I know that some cases are considered fixed sentences such as: play the fool or play God. Is there any flexibility when it comes to this or should I literally memorize every example?

Please help.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.
