I’ve always liked Randy Quaid as an actor but it seems he’s gone off the deep end. First he and his wife got arrested for not paying a hotel bill. Then they got arrested again for living in a house they used to own but had sold several years ago. They didn’t show up for a court hearing on that charge and turned up in Canada, where they were arrested. And this is where it gets weird. Now they’re asking for asylum in Canada because, they say, there are people murdering famous actors and they fear they may be next.
There, the pair — who were arrested a day earlier on outstanding U.S. warrants — told an adjudicator that the actor has had eight close friends murdered in recent years, adding they fear that they could be next.
In a handwritten note, shown to media by their Vancouver-based lawyer, Brian Tsuji, the couple said: “Yes we are requesting asylum from Hollywood ‘STAR WHACKERS.’”
Those Quaid counts among his “murdered” friends include actors Heath Ledger and David Carradine.
It’s starting to sound like playing cousin Eddie in the Vacation movies may have been typecasting. What a loon.
