George W. Bush and Colin Powell Actors Arrested in Bar Fight

Brolin

Actors Josh Brolin and Jeffrey Wright, in Shreveport, Louisiana to play George W. Bush and Colin Powell in Oliver Stone's W, were arrested in a bar fight in downtown Shreveport over the weekend:

"According to Shreveport Police patrol report, officers were called to the Stray Cat bar in the 200 block of Travis Street just after 2 a.m. to deal with a rowdy patron. As more officers arrived, several other patrons at the bar, including Brolin and fellow actor Jeffrey Wright, 42, tried to impede the officers, the report said. In all, the report named 10 officers called to the ruckus. Brolin, Wright and four other people were charged with interfering with police, a misdemeanor. Brolin was booked into the city jail, and posted $334 cash bond to be released."

Brolin also plays Harvey Milk assassin Dan White in Gus van Sant's upcoming biopic Milk.

  1. Did Babs Brolin show up at the station to bail her naughty stepson out?

  2. Shreveport and New Orleans are two completely different places that just happen to share a state.

    I have a feeling that this movie is going to completely suck. Oliver Stone stopped being relevant and making good movies some time ago and I don't think this will mark a comeback.

  5. Jeffrey Wright is such a brilliant actor (stage & screen). I can't believe he isn't gay, but he aint....I guess. Well, he could be if he tried.

  6. Sounds like someone's channeling the characters they're playing too well.

  7. They weren't in New Orleans filming; they have been in Shreveport. The two cities are about six hours apart. To my knowledge, they have not been filming in New Orleans.

    I know it's not a big deal, but it's annoying to hear your entire state reduced to one city over and over again by the media.

  8. Sorry guys - the Shreveport/New Orleans typo was a case of my brain thinking one thing and my hands typing another. Apologies.

  10. Rumor has it. Brolin pulled the old "don't you know who I am" gag. The officers weren't impressed and hauled his ass to the jail.
