Actor Ving Rhames has claimed he was held at gunpoint in his own home by police officers.
In a new interview with US radio station SiriusXM on The Clay Clane Show, the Mission: Impossible — Fallout star detailed the hairy situation which left him shaken.
“This is the God’s honest truth. This happened this year,” said Rhames. “I open the door and there is a red dot pointed at my face from a 9-mm, and they say, ‘Put up your hands,’ literally.”
Eventually, one of the officers recognised the Pulp Fiction actor and the situation was diffused. They’d seen Rhames at school basketball games their sons played together in.
Obviously, these cops weren’t movie fans…
Apparently, they were responding to an emergency call from a neighbour who reported a break-in by a “large black man”.
After Rhames gave them the correct address for the neighbour, he rightly pointed out that the mistake could have been disastrous for his family.
“What if it was my son and he had a video game remote or something, and you thought it was a gun,” he explained. “Just like, I don’t know, Trayvon [Martin] had a bag of Skittles.”
Rhames’ most recent movie is Mission: Impossible — Fallout, which hit cinemas in the UK on Friday 27 July.
Co-star Henry Cavill’s performance has attracted attention for his famous CGI moustache removal in Justice League.
Cavill had finished filming his scenes as Superman in the DC blockbuster, but was forced into extensive reshoots in post-production.
However, Cavill was required to have facial hair for MI6 and so couldn’t shave to step back into the role of Superman.
“It was fun to watch it unfold and to poke the bear sometimes,” explained Cavill. “At the beginning of it all, I had no idea that it was going to create such a ruckus. But we couldn’t shave it off – a fake one wouldn’t have worked. You’ll see why, when you see the movie.”
Mission: Impossible – Fallout is in UK and US cinemas now. Book tickets here.
