Is Nick Stahl a victim of 'Terminator' curse?
Posted by JPX
From usatoday, Is there something about being in a Terminator film that leads to trouble? A curse?
Of course that's a crazy idea, but ...
Los Angeles police are trying to find actor Nick Stahl, whose wife Rose reported him missing on Monday. Rose says the 32-year-old actor has been troubled by drug addiction. She added that he had been frequenting Los Angeles' Skid Row area recently.
Stahl, 32, took over the role of young John Connor in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines from Edward Furlong, whose career was sidetracked by drugs after 1991's Terminator 2: Judgment Day.
Other Terminator star troubles:
Thomas Dekker played John Connor in the television series spinoff Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. After the show wrapped in 2009, Dekker was arrested on suspicion of DUI after allegedly hitting a bicyclist. He was charged with misdemeanor reckless driving.
While filming 2009's Terminator Salvation, star Christian Bale made headlines when a tape was leaked of his four-minute f-word-laced tirade aimed at director of photography Shane Hurlbut. He later apologized.
The original Terminator (1984), Arnold Schwarzenegger, faced allegations by six women in 2003 that he had touched them inappropriately on movie sets and other settings over three decades. And in 2011 he and wife Maria Shriver separated after he admitted fathering a child with his housekeeper Mildred Baena.
