"W" Actors, Crew Arrested in Bar Fight

From CNN:

SHREVEPORT, Louisiana (AP) -- Actors Josh Brolin and Jeffrey Wright and five others involved in filming the Oliver Stone movie "W" were arrested during a bar fight Saturday morning, police said.

Shreveport police Sgt. Willie Lewis said the seven were arrested just after 2 a.m. at the Stray Cat bar.

The Times of Shreveport reported that Brolin was booked and posted $334 cash bond to be released. Police did not say Saturday night whether he or the others had been released. The paper said they are part of the crew filming "W," about President George W. Bush.

A call to Brolin's publicist was not immediately returned Saturday night.

Well this is certainly shaping up to be the weirdest journey to the screen of any movie this year (sorry QT and the Inglorious Bastards). I've been behind this one from the beginning, even though it's been turned into a punching bag by the oh-so-ironic, hipper-than-thou types in the blogosphere. But stuff like this is making my faith waiver.

Come on Oliver Stone, don't let me down.
