Yesterday it was reported that Dazed & Confused star Jason London was beaten at a club in Scottsdale, Arizona. Conflicting accounts of how the fighting began make it difficult to ascertain why London's face became such a mess, but while the bouncers at the club claim London threw the first punch, the actor's knuckles tell a different story.
According to one of the bouncers, London sneezed in his face, refused to apologise and punched him, which lead to the blood brawl. However, as far as London is concerned he was accused of looking at a girl which ended up in a fight. According to TMZ Jason walked away with a sinus fracture, multiple contusions, a haematoma, abrasions and a concussion. He's now in hospital.
A rep for London said: "Jason's injuries are consistent with a brutal attack with deliberately and expertly aimed landed shots to the head which, according to eyewitnesses, continued even after he was unconscious."
Dazed And Confused star Jason London has taken to Twitter to give his side of the story, after being arrested in Arizona and charged with assault and disorderly conduct. If that wasn’t bad enough, he was also charged with defecating in a police vehicle whilst on his way to jail. Grim.
The Daily Telegraph reports that London – who played main character Randall ‘Pink’ Floyd in the 1993 comedy – was at the Martini Ranch Bar in Phoenix’s Scottsdale on Sunday (January 27, 2013) when someone complained that the actor had sneezed on him. Instead of apologizing, London apparently punched the person in question and was subsequently escorted out by security. He also chose to attack the security, who opted to defend themselves against the actor. On Twitter, London has claimed that he was the one who’d been attacked. "I would never say or do the crap they are reporting," he said in the message on Tuesday (January 29, 2013).
"Have faith in me. The truth will come out and you will see." He added “Wait till you see the real pictures. I have a right orbital fracture and sinus fracture. The truth will win. Some guy thought I was hitting on his girl and had me jumped. My wife was in the next room, had no idea what even happened. I hate Arizona." We can’t imagine Arizona’s too fond of him either.
Actor Jason London was arrested following a scuffle at the Martini Ranch bar in Scottsdale, Arizona, at 1.40am on Sunday morning (January 27, 2013), leaving the Dazed & Confused actor with a pretty nasty looking black-eye.
Upon arriving at the scene, cops found Jason nursing a battered and bruised face. The bouncer at the club claimed the actor had walked by him and sneezed in his direction. The bouncer asked for an apology, though Jason punched him in the face instead. Of course, London was given a serious beating and thrown out of the club kicking and screaming. Anyway, the night doesn't end there, unfourtnately.
Paramedics arrived on the scene, though cops say the actor got aggressive with the responders and shoved them. One officer was forced to deliver a "knee strike" to Jason's right thigh so they could seat him on the ground. He called one of the officers a "f*cking hillbilly." On his way to the police station, London offered up a homophobic slur, saying, "Guess what fa**ot? I f***ing love this. I f***ing own you guys so hard. I'm rich and I'm a motherf***ing famous actor! F***ing look me up, bitch." Jason continued, "It smells like s**t in your car and your breath smells like diarrhea," before leaning over and crapping in his pants, adding, "I told you I'm happy as s**t."

Jason London is looking distinctly worse for wear, not just because the Dazed & Confused actor has just passed to 40 mark, but also because he was beaten up in a bar fight, and subsequently 'crapped himself' in a cop car, reports TMZ.
While we never want to trivialise violence, the scenario described by the police sounds eminently comic. It goes something like this: a drunk Jason London walked past a bouncer nursing a black eye. While walking past him, he sneezed right on said bouncer. The bouncer, understandably, asked for an apology, but rather than doing the police thing, London simply punched him. In the process of being removed from the bar 'kicking and screaming'. After hurling homophobic slurs at the officers he told them that he was rich and a 'motherf***ing famous actor'. He then proceeded to relieve himself in his pants.
Since the initial reports, London himself has spoken to TMZ vehemently denying the claims. "I got jumped by three 250 pound bouncers. They knocked me out and beat me for several minutes. I would never say or do the crap they are reporting. Have faith in me. The truth will come out and you will see."

It is an entertaining fictionalization of high school graduation weekend of the senior class of 1976 in Linklater's former home city of Austin, Texas. Jocks, rednecks, cheerleaders, stoners, frosh, and the other high school demographic groups are all lovingly and respectfully rendered on Linklater's canvas. Though I didn't graduate until the mid-'80s, I'm pretty sure that the amount of pot smoking is this film is not exaggerated. And as evidence of the director's commitment to brutal realism, Foghat's "Slow Ride" is heard not once, not twice, but three times before the end of the movie. Rock on.

Must I go on? OK. If Anna's not your thing, maybe you'll get off on watching rapidly aging but still hunky Antonio Sabato Jr. as a hardcore lycra-clad spinning instructor leading a class of horny ladies who want to lick the sweat off his tattooed pecs. He's the buddy of Harvey and Evan (Barney Cheng and Jason London), a gay couple who become unwitting drug couriers while doing interior decorating work for an evil and ultra-rich Armenian shrew/drug trafficker who keeps two leather chaps-wearing boy toys as her personal servants.

Poor White Trash concerns Michael Bronco (Tony Denman), a small-town boy who wants nothing more than to be a psychologist. He spends his evenings talking about how his divorced mother's (Sean Young) anger towards her ex is a shield for her fear of abandonment, and spends his days raisin' hell with Ron Lake (William Devane). One day, the hell raisin' goes a little too far and the two find themselves in court, where they are convicted but get a suspended sentence due to the handiwork of the sleazy Lennie Lake (Jacob Tierney), a gold-toothed hick of a lawyer with a beer-can garden (you really have to witness this bizarre sight to believe it). Thinking that all is fine, the group goes off to celebrate, only to find out that Michael can't get into college now that he's been convicted of a crime.

Think "Blue Crush" without water -- or awesome surfing footage, likable characters with real personalities, beautiful girls in bikinis or anything else worth watching -- and I guarantee whatever you have in mind is still better than "Grind."
A skateboarding road-trip flick that will bore real skateboarders silly (and I should know -- I've been one since the late '70s), it includes barely 10 minutes of badly-edited actual boarding, less than half of which features the main characters (no-name actors using obvious stunt doubles), who in the course of the movie perform only one trick (at the very end) that's beyond the abilities of any dedicated junior high school punk with a modicum of talent.
Built on the "Crush" story template, the rest of the movie's 100-minute run-time is spent following four witless, college-age pro-tour wannabes around the country as they stalk and hassle the current king of sponsored skateboarding (Jason London) to look at a videotape of their supposedly fancy footwork.
