Alec Baldwin Is Killing His Next Movie Role (Sort Of).


The director of photography in an Alec Baldwin movie was killed and the film’s director was injured on October 21st when the actor fired a prop firearm on the set of a movie in New Mexico.  Halyna Hutchins, 42, was killed and Joel Souza, 48, was injured around 1:50 p.m. on the set of “Rust,” a Western being filmed in Santa Fe County, Juan Rios, a spokesman for the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office, said. The circumstances of the shooting are under investigation.  Mr. Rios said the shooting at Bonanza Creek Ranch happened in the middle of a scene that was either being rehearsed or filmed. He said the Sheriff’s Office was interviewing people on the set to determine how the two had been shot.  This seems scarily similar to the incident that resulted in the death of Brandon Lee (Bruce Lee’s son) during the filming of the movie ‘The Crow’.  

“We’re trying to determine right now how and what type of projectile was used in the firearm,” he said.  Mr. Rios said on Thursday night that the Sheriff’s Office had not filed charges against anyone in connection with the shooting.  Ms. Hutchins was flown to the University of New Mexico Hospital in Albuquerque, where she later died, Mr. Rios said. Mr. Souza was taken to CHRISTUS St. Vincent Regional Medical Center in Santa Fe. Mr. Souza’s condition was not immediately available.  The film’s producers and a representative for Mr. Baldwin, 63, did not immediately respond to emails or phone calls on Thursday night.  On Thursday morning, Mr. Baldwin posted a photo on Instagram in his film costume, which included what appeared to be a prosthetic wound on his torso.  We know that he didn’t know… but a tad bit in bad taste though.  

Max B To Spend Rest Of His Life In Jail.


An appeals court has upheld the murder conviction and 75-year sentence given to Harlem rapper Max B for his role in a deadly 2006 robbery at a Fort Lee hotel. Max B, now 34, was convicted in 2009 after a jury found that he had dispatched Leerdam, his stepbrother, and his girlfriend Gina Conway to a Holiday Inn on Route 4 to rob two men, Allan Plowden and David Taylor. During the attempted robbery, Leerdam shot Taylor, killing him.

Heavy D (real name Dwight Arrington Myers) was rushed to an L.A. hospital around noon today … and was pronounced dead at the hospital at 1 PM. He was 44 years old.  A 911 call was placed from Heavy’s Beverly Hills home around 11:25 AM to report an unconscious male on the walkway.  When help arrived, we’re told Heavy D was conscious and speaking — and was transported to a nearby hospital.  He died a short time later.  Cops are investigating the death — and so far, there are no obvious signs of foul play.  Mister Cee, one of Heavy D’s long time friends put out a tribute to the Hip Hop icon earlier today.  Click the pic above to take a listen.

Cassidy Arrested and Suspected of Murder.


The Philadelphia Police warrant squad called the Hackensack Police Department on Saturday morning to tell officers there was an open warrant for Hackensack resident Barry Reese, also known as Cassidy, Hackensack police Lt. Timothy Lloyd said.  The warrant was for violating probation, but Reese is also a suspect in a murder and two attempted murders in Philadelphia, Lloyd said.  Philadelphia police knew from a prior investigation that the rapper lived in Hackensack, Lloyd said.  Philadelphia police told their Hackensack counterparts “to consider this person armed and dangerous,” and this was a “high-risk warrant,” Lloyd said.  Officers from the Hackensack Police Emergency Response Team and the police department’s juvenile bureau watched Reese’s home Saturday on Reilly Court, Lloyd said.

Reese left his house about 1:30 p.m. and was followed by police to a local convenience store, Lloyd said.  An undercover ERT officer went in the store and positively identified Reese, he said.  When Reese came out of the store, “the ERT units moved in and conducted a felony motor vehicle stop,” Lloyd said.  Reese “was very surprised,” Lloyd said. The officers who arrested the rapper “did an outstanding job,” he said. “Without the proper teamwork going on, this could have spiraled out of control quickly.”  No one was injured in the arrest, Lloyd said.  Reese, 28, will be brought to the Bergen County Jail Annex to await extradition to Philadelphia, Lloyd said.
