    The actor Rip Torn was arrested for breaking into a bank while intoxicated and carrying a gun. DOH!

    If you don't know who he is, he played the boss in Men in Black and the dodgeball coach in Dodgeball among many, many other roles.

    Interesting to see what happens with the case....

    I worked on a movie with him, Willie Nelson and Kris Kristopherson back in 1990. He was a gentleman. He is from Taylor, TX (just N/E of Austin). His mother was living in a nursing home in Taylot at the time. He had her brought to the set. He doted over her all day. I think you can tell a lot about a man by the way he treats his mother. He treated his mother VERY well.
    I think he has had some alcohol problems lately. I think he got arrested a few years back on alcohol related something or another.

    I saw it on Fox News. Video and mug shots would be great. I bet he awoke in the drunk tank with no idea....maybe he did not do enough of the 5 keys; "Dodge, duck, dart and dodge..."

    Rip Torn is friggin hilarious! 30 Rock (I know, the ultra-liberal NBC, but funnier than hell) and HBO's The Larry Sanders show were great Rip Torn vehicles.

    Damn!

    There is nothing Hilarious about getting into a vehicle while intoxicated and driving that vehicle. You not only put yourself at risk but everyone else.

    Hilarious!! Rip has always cracked me up!

    And we're all talking about his acting, not his getting into a car while drunk and we all know it!

    It was meant to be tongue in cheek at Lon. I knew we are talking about his acting.
