This former A- list mostly movie actor who all of you know despite the fact he has not worked in years tried to get the tabloids to do what they do and write a story about him.
They were up for it until he said that he wanted to look good and his acting brother to look bad.
The tabloids think the brother is a bigger star so won’t cross him.
The sad, strange saga of Independence Day hero Randy Quaid
Over the last few years this funny, talented actor has gone through one of the saddest, strangest declines Hollywood has ever seen. Aside from Will Smith, he’s the only major cast member of Independence Day not to appear in this summer’s belated sequel, Independence Day: Resurgence – and though yes, that’s partly because his character died in the first one, another favourite supporting player left for dead in that film makes a comeback.
If it had been at all feasible to have him burst through an airlock and roar that catchphrase again, you can bet 20th Century Fox would have had him do it.
Now 65 years old, with a bushy white mountain man’s beard, Quaid has spent most of his time since his last credited screen role in 2009 on the run from US law enforcement. The trouble began in September of that year, when Quaid and his wife were arrested in Texas: they’d left a hotel in California with an outstanding tab of around $10,000 on their room. (Further unpaid hotel bills have since come to light.)
A year later, they were arrested again, this time for squatting in the guest house of a home they’d owned some years ago. Various court dates for both arrests were set and missed, and well into six figures of bail money was forfeited. The first case was eventually dismissed against Randy for lack of evidence, while Evi was sentenced to 240 hours of community service. Four days after warrants were issued for their arrest over the second, the Quaids popped up in Canada, where they until last year, just out of the clutches of US law enforcement.
This is where things become complicated. The Quaids might have fled to Canada to avoid various criminal charges, but they also claimed to be on the run from what they called Hollywood Star Whackers, a shadowy cabal engineering the deaths and disgrace of Hollywood celebrities in order to somehow embezzle their royalties or life insurance.
“I’ve had eight friends of mine who have either died mysteriously or had scandals surrounding them in recent years,” Quaid said in a television interview in 2010, before explaining that the Star Whackers m.o. involves manipulating the banking and criminal justice systems from within, in order to creating “a scandal or a mystery around a celebrity that discredits them.”
According to the Quaids, Heath Ledger, David Carradine and Chris Penn were three such victims, and were convinced they, along with Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan, were next on the list. – Source
