FBI Arrests Actor's Friend For Putting Screener Online
from the with-friends-like-that... dept
Just a week and a half after the MPAA flipped out when they discovered a screener movie they had sent to an actor for the Academy Awards had made its way online, the FBI has arrested a friend of the actor. The actor, Carmine Caridi, known for playing mafia-type roles, apparently ratted out his friend pretty quickly when the FBI came knocking. Caridi admits to sending every single screener he’s received in the past three years to Russell Sprague, who he believed was a movie fan who wanted to see the movies. Sprague is now under arrest and accused of taking those films and putting them online. Of course, part of me wonders if the FBI didn’t have anything better to do with their time.
