We think Sam Worthington might be taking the whole ‘method acting’ thing a bit too far, judging by recent reports of his behaviour. According to TMZ, the Avatar actor started being “belligerent” outside a club in Atlanta and when his antics became so unruly that he got sprayed with mace, he shouted at the bouncer who’d sprayed him “I'm a DEA agent! You f**ked up now!"
It seems as though the lines between fiction and reality have become well and truly blurred for Worthington, given that’s not actually a DEA agent, he’s just being paid to pretend to be one. In a movie. Called Ten It’s shame really, that Sam didn’t have his Ten co-star Arnold Schwarzenegger with him when the incident happened; now that really would have made headline news.
The bouncer in question, Jerry Link, told TMZ that Worthington arrived at the Vortex Bar and Grill in Atlanta, looking like a homeless man, in his hoodie and was carrying a bundle of clothes. Worthington was reused entry to the club, because he was drunk. The actor found himself getting arrested for disorderly conduct after pushing Link. However, the case was dropped as Link didn’t show in court yesterday (November 5, 2012). Looks as though Worthington’s got off lightly here, he might need to be careful about going around shooting his mouth off about being a DEA agent in future. Especially considering, you know… he isn’t one.
