Fred Willard has been arrested for pulling a Pee Wee Herman in a Los Angeles porn theatre. I find it impossible to believe that any sexual act one might perform during the screening of a porn film could be considered “lascivious”, at least by fellow audience members – who’s he gonna shock? Besides, the man absolutely made all of Christopher Guest’s films, especially “Best in Show” and deserves special dispensation just for that.
But instead, PBS has fired him from some sort of Antique’s Road Show -type show and the poor guy’s been sent off to a diversion program for wankers. Terrible.
If there’s a bright spot for Willard to contemplate, it’s that this arrest can only help publicity for his upcoming movie, the oh-so-aptly named “The Yank”.
