"PULP FICTION" WRITER ARRESTED AFTER FATAL CRASH 


Alright, I don't normally report gossip stuff like this, but Roger Avary is a big part of the movie culture, and this new, developing details about his life are just sad, sad, sad.

But, Oscar-winning screenwriter Roger Avary was arrested Sunday on suspicion of manslaughter and driving under the influence after a Ventura County car crash that killed a man and injured Avary's wife, authorities said.

MSNBC is reporting that Avary, 42, was the driver in the single-car collision shortly after midnight in Ojai, said Captain Ross Bonfiglio of the Ventura County Sheriff's Department.

Killed in the accident was Andreas Zini, 34, a resident of Italy who was apparently visiting the couple. Firefighters cut Zini from the car with Jaws of Life and he died several hours later at Ventura County Medical Center.

Avary's wife Gretchen, 40, was ejected from the car and found in the road by deputies, Bonfiglio said. She was hospitalized in stable condition.

Avary was booked but later released on $50,000 bail, Bonfiglio said. He did not know whether Avary has hired an attorney.

Avary won an Academy Award along with Quentin Tarantino for writing "Pulp Fiction," and was also a co-writer of the recent epic "Beowulf."

THAT EXPLAINS BORAT'S BULGE IN "SWEENEY TODD" -- SACHA BARON COHEN'S DEMONIC SECRET!!! 


According to Handbag, director Tim Burton has admitted that Sacha Baron used padding in his trousers when filming the musical "Sweeney Todd."

"Borat" and "Ali G" star Sacha Baron Cohen's confidence took a knock yesterday when "Sweeney Todd" director Tim Burton let the cat out of the bag about his impressive performance in the upcoming musical by admitting Cohen had used padding to achieve a prodigious trouser bulge.

"I thought he was just happy to do a musical!" Burton explained. "I didn't ask [how he did it]. But I was happy when I saw it."

And let me tell ya, Cohen's big bulge is the most frightening thing about the movie!
