Correa-mcmullen Killer Gets Life


The gang member who gunned down Judging Amy star TARA CORREA-MCMULLEN has been sentenced to life without parole.

Damien Watts, 23, was convicted of murder with special circumstances, attempted murder and other charges in January (09), following the shooting in Inglewood, Los Angeles in 2005 - which left sixteen-year-old Correa-MCMullen and another victim dead.

Watts was handed consecutive life terms for the crime on Friday (27Feb09). A day before the attack, he also killed Thomas Sanders, 31, as he loaded laundry into a car.

Correa-MCMullen, real name Shalvah MCMullen, starred as a gang member in Judging Amy, as well as appearing alongside Martin Lawrence in comedy movie Rebound.

Capote Screenwriter Secretly Joins Jolie Film

Dan Futterman Angelina Jolie Judging Amy Michael Winterbottom

CAPOTE screenwriter Dan Futterman has secretly been cast opposite Angelina Jolie in a film about slain Wall Street Journal reporter DANIEL PEARL.
Jolie made headlines last month (JUL06) when it was announced she was playing Pearl's widow MARIANNE in the film adaptation of her 2003 memoir A MIGHTY HEART.
But Paramount Pictures made no mention at the time of who would be playing her husband, leading many to speculate the role was yet to be cast.
In fact, Futterman, who is best known for his recurring role on US TV drama Judging Amy, had already been selected and was secretly filming in Pakistan.
The casting was kept a closely guarded secret because of security concerns and crewmembers were sworn to secrecy during the 10-day shoot on location in Karachi and Islamabad.
Director Michael Winterbottom and a skeleton crew went to Pakistan undercover, hoping to be mistaken for a documentary or news crew.
Futterman, who agreed to be interviewed only after he returned to the US, tells the Washington Post, "It was important to shoot in the actual places where things happened.
"There are lots of little things that were important to (Winterbottom), not least of all the people and the sound of the language spoken."
Pearl was a respected journalist at the time he was abducted and killed in Pakistan - four months before his wife gave birth to their son - while researching a story about Muslim fundamentalists.
