p2pnet view Movies:- In one of, if not the, most bizarre refugee stories in Canada, Hollywood actor Randy Quaid and his wife, Evi, have asked for asylum because they say they’re afraid “star whackers” will murder them in the US.
“Randy, older brother to actor Dennis Quaid, is a 1973 Oscar-nominee mired in a slew of legal troubles in recent years”, says Pop Eater.
He and his wife, arrested in Canada on outstanding US bench warrants, were released yesterday on $10,000 bail each after asking for refugee protection in Canada during an immigration hearing” says CTV News.

- The ‘Independence Day’ star sued Focus Features in 2006, claiming producers lured him to join the cast of ‘Brokeback Mountain’ for little pay, before the film went on to gross more than $80 million at the domestic box office.
- Quaid was expelled from the stage performers’ union, Actors Equity Association, after he allegedly missed rehearsals for a play in 2007; the Seattle cast reported inappropriate behavior, and some close to the couple believe lawsuits stemming from the incident triggered the duo’s criminal exploits.
- In 2009, the Quaids were accused of running out on a $10,000 California hotel bill and, after repeatedly skipping court dates, were finally tracked down in Texas and extradited.
The Quaids’ lawyer said the couple was seeking asylum from “Hollywood star-whackers”, says CTV News.
“Evi claimed that nine close friends of her husband have recently been murdered, including actors David Carradine, Heath Ledger and Chris Penn”, it says, continuing >>>
Carradine was found hanging by a rope in a hotel room in Thailand last year, Ledger died of an overdose of a mix of prescription medications in 2008 and Penn died of heart disease in 2006.
The Canadian government had argued for the pair to stay in jail because they are unlikely to appear at future hearings, but the couple asked for their release for health reasons. Evi claims she has high blood pressure and is on the verge of a stroke.
A judge in Santa Barbara issued $50,000 bench warrants for the couple earlier this week after skipping an arraignment hearing in their felony burglary case.
Vancouver police said officers assisted the Canada Border Services Agency in arresting the Quaids “in an affluent neighbourhood on the city’s west side on Thursday afternoon”, says CTV News.
The VPD “would not confirm” their name, “saying their identities are protected”, it adds.
