There's really only two scenarios for the onscreen murder of the Roxxon Oil exec:

1) The exec was an actor, too (or a real Roxxon exec who was in the employ of AIM, and was pretending to be a hostage), and Trevor knew that, and was shooting blanks.
2) The exec was real, and the murder was real, and Trevor (...if that's his real name after all....) had no qualms about blowing his brains out. In which case, the whole drunken actor charade he put on for Tony (and, apparently, the courts) was just a ruse.

There's simply no way in hell that Trevor the Actor wouldn't have been shocked out of his act if the bullets in his gun were real. He would've freaked the hell out (on live television) and tried to bail on Killian.
