Nick Stahl appears to have been a victim of circumstance. The Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines star was searched by authorities today during a routine sweep of Los Angeles' crime-ridden Skid Row area, with L.A. County Sheriff's Department spokesman Steve Whitmore confirming to E! News that Stahl was "detained because of the area he was in." "He was patted down and let go," Whitmore said. There was no official word, meanwhile, about what Stahl was doing in the neighborhood. Stahl's last run-in with the law was a Dec. 27 arrest at a porn store for alleged lewd conduct, but charges were never filed due to insufficient evidence. The 33-year-old actor was »
Does Nick Stahl look suspicious to you?? 'Cause cops in L.A. felt the "Terminator" star appeared so shady, they performed a full "empty your pockets" search on the guy in broad daylight. Here's what we know ... Stahl was sitting on a street bench in West Hollywood on Monday when an L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. cruiser rolled up and the deputy called the actor over to the car.

Things seem to be looking up for Nick Stahl! After a year that saw him seek treatment for drug addiction and get arrested, the troubled Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines star was snapped looking positively chipper as he took his wife Rose Stahl and daughter Marlo out for a pre-Easter stroll at The Grove Mall in Los Angeles on Saturday. The 33-year-old Stahl's sunny demeanor is a welcome turnaround given his recent highly publicized problems. After worrying his missus when he went missing for a week last May, Stahl checked into rehab only to disappear again the following month where he was found to be staying at a friend's house. Then on Dec. 27, he was popped at a porn shop for »
Not that either of the third of fourth Terminator movies were that bad – it’s just that the first two set such high standards that it was always going to be a near impossible task to get out of their mighty shadows. Terminator Salvation took a few years to get off the ground (it always takes years to get a Terminator movie made) and while it was known that any involvement of Arnold Schwarzenegger would be limited due to his time as Governor of California, the film still has some big guns to back it up.
Director McG had been predominantly known as the guy who directed those Charlie’s Angels movies, but the involvement of Jonathon Nolan, who co-wrote The Dark Knight with brother Christopher Nolan was heavily publicised. As »

With Arnold Schwarzenegger returning to the big screen in The Last Stand, the Flickering Myth writing team look back at their favourite Arnie movies. Last up is Simon Columb with 2003's Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines...
It's not my favourite in fairness - but it is underrated. I don't claim it is anywhere near as good as a Jim Cameron movie, but it sure as hell isn't G.I. Joe: The Rise of the Cobra. At the time of release, I remember thinking "Wow, Clare Danes does star in the big films still". Prior to this, everyone was pleased to have the duo of films that preceded - but, in the year of the trilogies (American Pie 3, The Matrix: Revolutions, The Lord Of The Rings: The Return of the King...), it seemed the perfect time to release the third Terminator movie. James Cameron hinted at a possible script for »

Actor Fred Willard has managed to avoid a lewd-conduct trial following a summer arrest at a California adult theater because he has completed a diversion program.
Willard finished the diversion program for minor sexual offenses intended to divert offenders from the criminal justice system, the Los Angeles Times reported. The program was completed in September, according to CBS News.
In July, Willard was arrested at the Tiki Theater, an adult movie theater in Hollywood, for lewd conduct. Police allegedly caught the 73-year-old actor with his "penis exposed and in his hand." However, Willard's lawyer claimed his client didn't violate any laws while inside the theater.
Just weeks after the arrest, Willard appeared on "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" and joked about the incident, but continued to defend his innocence.
"It's the last time I'm going to listen to my wife when she says, ‘Why don't you go out and see a movie? »
