PAUL ROW, an unknown actor who stars in Elijah Wood's new movie about soccer hooliganism has shocked producers by receiving a prison sentence for a real soccer riot.

The 39-year-old PAUL ROW was drafted in to play a thug , because the other extras did not look tough enough for the part.

But producers were not aware that only weeks earlier Row, who is a member of West Ham football club's notorious Inner City Firm, had been involved in a violent street battle with Cardiff City Fans.

After filming the low-budget movie - which is set to be released next month (SEP05) - Row has appeared at Snaresbrook Crown Court and awarded a 12 months jail sentence.
