Christian Slater Victim of Knife Attack

ChristianSlater.jpgThis just ain’t funny. Actor Christian Slater (who I once thought was going to be a major major star) was attacked this weekend by some knife weiding psycho. CNN gives us this:

American actor Christian Slater has escaped a knife attack after a performance of his show in London’s West End. Slater, 35, has been starring in a stage version of “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” at the Gielgud theater, which ended a three month season on Saturday. Media reports said Slater’s bodyguard took the brunt of the knife attack, which occurred outside the theater.

“A 44-year old man was attacked by a knife which luckily did not penetrate his skin but only his clothes,” said a Scotland Yard spokeswoman, adding that a knife was recovered from the scene and that police are continuing to investigate. The spokesman said police were called to Shaftsbury Avenue in the heart of London’s theaterland at 11 p.m. on Friday evening after reports of an attempted stabbing.

The good news is that no one was hurt.

  1. Wait…Christian Slater’s in a stage version of One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest? Damn, I wish i lived over there so I could see that. He’s the perfect person for the part.

    Maybe they’ll pull a producers and remake the movie with the stage cast.

  2. According to Christian Slater in a post “Knife” interview, He wasn’t near the incident. He said he was inside the building, far away from the attack and knew nothing about it until later…Based on his account and the writers account,it sounds like someone isn’t stating the facts???????

    I noticed several people have inquired about distribution rights of the movie “Dirty Love” premiered at the Sundance Festival last weekend….But, I have not seem any response???
