It seemed like only yesterday that Morton was carefully explaining who Nick Stahl was in his weekly DVD column. Hey, would you look at that, it was yesterday. If you needed a refresher: “before he was Afghan Luke, Nick Stahl was that Yellow Bastard in Sin City. Some of you may remember that before that, he was John Connor 2.0 in Terminator 3. Before that, as I’m sure we all remember, he showed his dick in Bully. Some of you might even remember that he started out as a child-actor in Mel Gibson’s The Man Without A Face.”
I’m not saying Morton is some kind of kidnapping witch or a jinx, but today TMZ reports that Stahl’s wife has filed a missing person’s report, saying Stahl has been missing since May 9th, a week ago.
Stahl’s wife filed a missing person’s report with the L.A.P.D. on Monday … saying she last saw the 32-year-old actor on May 9.
Sources tell TMZ … it is believed Stahl had been frequenting the Skid Row area of Downtown Los Angeles recently … and there are concerns he may have gotten himself involved in some bad stuff.
Back in February, Nick’s wife had filed court papers, expressing serious concerns that Nick may be using drugs … and sources say she fears drugs may have something to do with his disappearance.
Stahl’s rep declined to comment on the situation. [TMZ]
Skid Row, isn’t that where your mom buys her panties? Back in March, TMZ send out an email blast about Stahl being charged for defrauding a taxi operator for pulling a runner on a cab. I didn’t think it was particularly newsworthy at the time, but now it seems as if the decision to devote an entire division of TMZ to Nick Stahl news is finally paying off. Harvey Levin, you slimy, bottom-feeding genius, you. Anyway, I’ll update with more news as it comes, and I’ll be sure to let you know if anything else like this happens, like Danny Masterson getting trapped in the grizzly enclosure at the zoo. Man, that would be awesome.
Our friend Joe King emailed me about this, and Joe, who lives in LA and knows a thing or two about being addicted to drugs, writes: “‘Nick had recently been frequenting the skid row area and there was concern he might be into bad stuff’ is like saying you’re concerned that he’s hanging out in crack houses in downtown Detroit. Skid row is the scariest place I’ve ever seen in my life. If my car broke down there I would abandon it and sprint out of there.”
