18 Stars We’re Worried About on Tax Day, From Nicolas Cage to Lindsay Lohan (Photos)
Tax Day is here, and don’t worry Cardi B, it’s confusing for everyone. These stars have all had issues with the IRS in the past. Hopefully they’re not sweating it again at the deadline.

Wesley Snipes

The “Blade” star spent three years in prison after being found guilty on three counts of failing to file a federal income tax returns in 2008. Snipes dodged $7 million in taxes between 1999 and 2000.

Lindsay Lohan

The “Mean Girls” star was caught trying to stiff the IRS three years in a row (2009, 2010, 2011), leading the IRS to seize her bank accounts in 2012. Charlie Sheen eventually helped pay back some of her debt.

Chris Tucker

Rush Hour” star Chris Tucker reached a settlement with the IRS in 2014. A federal tax collector filed a $2.5 million lien against the actor, but it was described as a formality necessary to the settlement.

Dennis Rodman

The former NBA star may need to put his friendship with North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un to the test by taking out a loan to pay off the $450,000 he owed to the states of California and Michigan, plus the federal government, in back taxes in 2014.

Teri Polo

The Fosters” star Teri Polo filed for bankruptcy in 2014, with Chapter 11 filings that showed she owed $745,000 in back taxes to the IRS and another $27,000 to the state of California.

Sean Kingston

The “Beautiful Girls” singer was hit with a lien in 2012 after the IRS found out he never paid $131,379 in taxes from 2009, the year he made it big in the music industry.

Lauryn Hill

This Grammy-winning singer paid her tax debt to society, failing to file returns on $1.8 million earned between 2005 and 2007, by serving three months in prison in 2013.

O.J. Simpson

“The People v Oj Simpson” detailed O.J. Simpson’s murder charges, but not his tax issues. In 2013, the IRS filed a lien for more than $500,000 of unpaid taxes between 2000 and 2011.

Richard Hatch

The original “Survivor” winner Richard Hatch was convicted of tax evasion in 2006 for failing to pay taxes on the show’s $1 million prize. He served 51 months in federal prison.

Willie Nelson

When the IRS came asking for millions of dollars in unpaid taxes from Willie Nelson, the country singer was forced to auction off his personal belongings. He even released the album “The IRS Tapes: Who’ll Buy My Memories?” to help raise the money for repayment.

Pamela Anderson

Former “Baywatch” star Pamela Anderson was hit with tax liens totaling more than $350,000 in 2012 over unpaid taxes to the federal government and the state of California.

Martha Stewart

Unrelated to her 2004 prison sentence for insider trading, Martha Stewart was forced to pay $220,000 in back taxes to the IRS in 2002 for her home in New York.

Nicolas Cage

The IRS slammed Nicolas Cage with a bill for $6.2 million in 2009. The actor promptly sued his money manager for negligence and fraud.

Al Sharpton

In 2014, The New York Times reported that Reverend Al Sharpton owed more than $4.5 million in back taxes to the IRS, adding that his National Action Network was only able to survive by not paying payroll taxes on its employees.

Joe and Teresa Guidice

After filing for bankruptcy in 2009, Joe and Teresa Giudice were convicted on fraud charges in 2013. Joe was also charged with failure to file tax returns for 2004-08.

Lionel Richie

In 2012, Lionel Richie owed $1.1 million to the IRS in unpaid income taxes from 2010.

Christie Brinkley

The IRS issued a tax lien against supermodel Christie Brinkley totaling $531,000 in 2011. Worth an estimated $80 million, Brinkley apologized publicly soon after and vowed to pay it back immediately.

Ja Rule

Rapper Ja Rule plead guilty to tax evasion and illegal firearm possession in 2011, serving two years in New York prison. He owed more than $1.1 million to the IRS in unpaid income taxes.

Movie News: 'Batgirl' Now Needs a New Writer and Director; Chris Tucker Teases 'Rush Hour 4'

Batgirl: Just about a year ago, we heard that Joss Whedon (Avengers: Age of Ultron, above) would be writing and directing Batgirl for Warner Bros. and DC.

Chris Tucker Confirms Rush Hour 4 Is In Production

Chris Tucker has confirmed Rush Hour 4 is in production. Tucker didn't have any details beyond that, but told ESPN podcast The Plug the following about the film:

It's happening. This is gonna be the rush of all rushes. Jackie is ready, and we want to do this so people don't ever forget it.

Jackie Chan better be ready because at 63, they're losing time! Side note, Chris Tucker is only 46 and I had no idea there was such an age disparity between the two of them. Granted, it's not something I've ever really thought about but Tucker is much younger than I assumed he was in the first few films.

Despite the action on the court, Sunday — Team LeBron James bested Team Stephen Curry with a score of 148-145 — the star-studded front row was quite the distraction. The mother-daughter duo was joined by Beyoncé’s own mom, Tina Knowles Lawson, who sat next to her husband, Richard Lawson.

Five reasons to see The Foreigner

  • Cineplex
Five reasons to see The ForeignerFive reasons to see The ForeignerScott Goodyer1/16/2018 9:30:00 Am

Jackie Chan karate kicks his way back onscreen in The Foreigner! The action movie has Chan playing a humble businessman with a buried past who seeks justice when his daughter is killed in an act of terrorism. Pierce Brosnan also stars, teaming up again with GoldenEye director Martin Campbell.

Here are 5 reasons why you need to check this movie out:

1. The Stunts

Jackie Chan has endured many years of long, hard work and a ton of injuries to establish international success via his early beginnings in Hong Kong's martial arts movie industry. Making his way to North American audiences in 1995 with Rumble in the Bronx, this was the first time we saw an action star do his own stunts as he ran up walls and bounced off cars. It was very impressive and Jackie hasn't slowed down.

A 34-year-old man has been arrested in Illinois on murder charges out of Pennsylvania, where he is accused of snapping the neck of a woman who did not accept his marriage proposal, People confirms.

'The Foreigner' Review: Jackie Chan Goes the 'Taken' Route in Revenge Thriller

'The Foreigner' Review: Jackie Chan Goes the 'Taken' Route in Revenge Thriller
Legend is a much abused word in the movie business – but Jackie Chan really is a legend. The undisputed king of martial-arts movies kicked up a notch with slapstick and jaw-dropping stunts, the star is acrobatic poetry in motion. American audiences know him best from his three Rush Hour action comedies with Chris Tucker (No. 4 is on the drawing board), but true aficionados rightly point to Chan's death-defying Hong Kong cinema epics – see Drunken Master, Police Story and Armor of God – as pinnacles of the form.

Rush Hour 4: Chris Tucker confirms it's going ahead

Simon Brew Feb 23, 2018

Rush Hour 4 is an active project, it seems...

Since we last heard anything about Rush Hour 4, namely the story you can find below, the director of the three films to date, Brett Ratner, has faced accusations of sexual misconduct. As such, it looks as if he's backed away from a bunch of movie projects (he was in line to direct the Hugh Heffner biopic).

Rush Hour 4, however, is still very much pressing ahead. Jackie Chan had said as much last autumn, and now Chris Tucker, his co-star, has confirmed this too. "It’s happening. This is gonna be the rush of all rushes. Jackie is ready and we want to do this so that people don’t ever forget it", he told ESPN'S The Plug podcast.

We don't have firm production dates, or anything of that ilk. But there is a clear intent
