Peter and Kyle Reynolds have always been close brothers, not only are they twins but a family loss at a young age also made them closer. The man are now grown up now and their mother (Helen) is about to re-marry. Her two sons travel to her wedding and she decides to tell her boys the truth behind what happened to their father.
From a young age Peter and Kyle have both believed that they lost their father to colon cancer and as such, Peter even formed his career around his father's illness as a way of dedication to his memory. What their mother tells them takes them both by surprise; she doesn't actually know who their dad is, he could be one of many people that she had a relationship with.
The brothers set off on a mission to find out who their dad really is, there's a famous sport star and a tattooed hothead (who Kyle feels is quite similar to Peter) both of whom might tell the brothers more information about their mom than they ever need to know.
Suge Knight could find himself back in prison after allegedly stealing a camera in Beverly Hills.
The former CEO of Death Row Records, Suge Knight, has been arrested with comedian Micah "Katt" Williams in Beverly Hills after allegedly stealing a camera from a photographer in Beverly Hills last month. Knight, 49, and Williams, 43, were charged with one count of robbery, the Los Angeles County district attorney's office said.
Suge Knight faces 30 years in prison because of a prior conviction for assault with a deadly weapon
According to the Los Angeles Times, an investigation began on September 5 after Knight and Williams walked out of the studio and came across a photographer. The pair are said to have chased the woman down an alley where Williams allegedly grabbed the woman's camera "forcibly". Police arrived at the scene but Knight and Williams had already taken off.

After pleading no contest, Williams got away with just half a sentence.
This past Thursday saw comedian Katt Williams sentenced to 90 days of community service for misdemeanor evading an officer. Well, at least he got away without any jail time. The funnyman was originally charged with felony vehicle code violation, but that was later downgraded. The judge also agreed to lower the original 180-day sentence down to just 90, provided that Williams really does the work and stays out of trouble. Williams pleaded no contest to the charge.
The entire case came about after the comedian got into a car chase last November, according to the LA Times. Williams was performing a series of tour dates along the West Coast, and he was also going through a rough time in general. As we’ve learned from many a public celebrity breakdown, personal troubles and a packed work schedule don’t tend to mix. Williams started the chase after being approached by the cops about disturbing the peace, according to a Fox 40 report at the time. After he was charged, he repeatedly failed to show up to court, a habit which didn’t help the situation at all. He later told the press that failing to appear in court was a mistake, as was getting into the chase in the first place.
Now, however, it looks like Williams’s trouble-making days are behind him, as well as his performing days. In December he made the announcement that he would be retiring from standup and, in confirmation, his official website lists no further tour dates.

Another day, another Katt Williams arrest. This time, the comedian was apprehended by cops after he failed to appear in court for a hearing related to his November 25, 2012 run-in with the California Highway Patrol (he was driving a three-wheeled motorcycle.) He also slapped a Target employee for no apparent reason.
Due to Williams' no-show, he forfeited his previous $50,000 bond and bail was reset at just over $100,000, the Sacramento District Attorney's Office confirmed to E! News on Tuesday (January 7, 2012). He faces charges of evading police and reckless driving after refusing to stop for officers engaged in a low-speed pursuit. The popular comedian may have a reason for the no-show, given that he was busted at his Los Angeles home on December 28, 2012 on suspicion of child endangerment. Police had allegedly discovered a stolen loaded gun on the promises. After leaving Van Nuys Jail following his release, Williams told TMZ's cameramen, "How do you keep kids safe without guns?"
The 41-year-old has also threatened to lay the smack-down on Quentin Tarantino for his extensive use of the N-word in his new movie Django Unchained. Williams appears to hail from the Spike Lee school of indignation saying, "Quentin Tarantino thinks he can say the N-word. But I checked with all of Ni**adom and nobody knows where he got his pass from. I hope he didn't get it from Samuel L. Jackson and Jamie Foxx cause they aren't going to help you when I see you."
Katt Williams is keeping busy, but not in a good way, unfortunately. The comedian's most recent stunt was getting into a massive fight outside a Hollywood nightclub on Friday night, mere hours after he had been arrested for child endangerment, and subsequently being released on bail, worth $100 000.
The funny-man was seen alongside Suge Knight, who almost mowed down several people in his SUV, after throwing a few punches while getting to the vehicle.
The video, released by TMZ, doesn’t make it clear what the cause of the disturbance was, but Williams and Knight, who manages Katt, were certainly in a hurry to get away from the scene. Then again, that might have been due to the people chasing them into their car and off the premises. This newest incident comes right on the heels of another disturbance, in which Katt was arrested in front of a Subway, while Suge was getting a mani-pedi. We couldn’t make this stuff up. To tally up: in the past month Williams has slapped a Target employee, been arrested for a disturbance and for child endangerment, gotten in trouble over unpaid taxes and gotten in a bar fight. Well, at least the man keeps things interesting. What would the holiday season be without a good brawl here and there?
Continue reading: Tis The Season For Katt Williams To Get In Trouble With The Law (Again)
Comedian and one of 2012's tabloid darlings Katt Williams is at it again, this time getting into trouble with the law for child endangerment. Still, the comedian has a defence (or something like it), announcing after his release from jail last night: "how do you keep kids safe without guns?" How indeed...
TMZ first reported the news that Williams was placed into police custody late last night (Dec 28) for allegedly endangering his four children. His house was raided by police whereupon they found numerous firearms and illicit substances, with his children taken into custody for their own safety along with Williams. Apparently, the items were seized by police who then placed Williams into familiar surroundings with a $100,000 bail on his head.
After his release on bail yesterday, Williams was confronted by TMZ outside the police station he was being held in, where he gave his side to the story. He told the gossip site that the guns, which were seized, had been kept in a secure and locked box, adding, "If the police come in and raid my place and break into my gun boxes, you're gonna find guns! I'm not in a gang, what difference does it make?"
The Target employee that was filmed receiving a slap from troubled comedian Katt Williams provoked the attack by using the 'N-word' - at least thats what Katt is saying anyway.
According to a video obtained by TMZ, the funny-man described the whole event during a performance at Hollywood's The Comedy Store, saying that prior to the attack on November 25th, the employee said to Williams; "Your assistant is already suing you, you p**sy ass n***er." Katt goes on to say that he replied with, "Say it again and see what happens," after which he hit the guy on the side of the head.
The employee's first jab is a reference to the lawsuit Katt is facing from former assistant who claims the comic punched her and is suing him for $5 million, but where the dropping of the N-Bomb came from is beyond us.
Cruise Has The Reach For Action Film: Eyebrows were raised when the 5 foot 7 Tom Cruise was cast to play Lee Child’s Jack Reacher in the action thriller adaptation of the novel. Why? Because in book form Reacher is some 6 foot 5 and over 200 pounds. With the premiere taking place in London this week though, Cruise was quick to defend the role, pointing out that Reacher’s height was a “characteristic” not a “character”. Sure thing.
X Factor UK Winner's Week Begins: Though the critics have panned it throughout, the latest series of The X Factor UK proved the format still has some clout - just ask James Arthur. Announced the winner at the weekend, he clocked up the fastest selling X Factor winner’s single of all time, with 187,000 sales of ‘Impossible’ in just 24 hours. Talking of impossible, it’s hard to see Chris Maloney ever having a career, having his less than magnanimous reaction to defeat. Oh dear.
Don't pretent your surprised, because Katt Williams has been arrested once again in only a short period of time since his last run in with the law. This time round, he was put in cuffs at a gas station in Dunnigan, California, after police called him up for an outstanding warrant for his arrest.
Williams has been a wanted man since November 25th, when he evaded police after a high speed chase in Sacramento, Cali. Having been in and out of the state since then, causing havoc wherever he went, police have been unable to book him for his outstanding warrant, until yesterday that is. According to KCRA, Yolo County Sheriffs deputies pulled Williams over after a routine traffic stop, upon which they discovered his outstanding warrant and took him into police custody.
Regardless of why he was called in to police custody doesn't really matter, for as far as we're concerned the further Williams is away from the public for now the better, as his bizarre and often illegal activities only seem to be getting worse. His driving offences are just one of his legal troubles, which include him getting involved in a bar fight after a show in Seattle, during which he allegedly threw a rock at a car, and lets not forget the time when he slapped a Target employee in the face a few weeks ago.
Continue reading: Katt Williams Arrested, Yet Again
Katt Williams has yet another legal issue to contend with after the controversial comic was arrest for the umpteenth time in only a few weeks after being pulled up on an outstanding warrant whilst in Dunnigan, California.
KCRA broke the news that the cuffs were slapped on Williams by Yolo County Sheriffs deputies last night (Dec 7), after he was made to pull into a nearby gas station by traffic police where he was then taken into police custody. It is believed that the charges with which Williams was booked stems back to a reckless driving incident that occurred in November, although no official police statement has been made as of yet.
Williams is currently embroiled in a whole heap of legal troubles at the moment, his driving offenses are frankly the least of his problems. Williams still has to face charges for his assault of a worker at a Target store in Woodland, Cali, with the comic scheduled to appear in court in January for that particular crime. Williams is also faces charges involving him in a bar fight last weekend (Nov 30), as well as his on stage meltdown just prior to the slew of recent offences.
The comedian Katt Williams, who has been in trouble with the police recently after a series of violent and odd run-ins, was a no show at an arraignment hearing in Seattle to face assault charges, The Huffington Post reports.
Thomas McAllister - Williams' attorney - told the judge on Thursday that his client was under the impression that he wasn't required to attend the hearing, citing information from an as yet unknown Seattle Times article. Municipal Court Judge Willie Gregory agreed that there appeared to be some confusion. He rescheduled the arraignment for Wednesday. Williams was charged today with three misdemeanor counts of fourth-degree assault stemming from two incidents. He also is accused of being aggressive with officers, who briefly took Williams to the ground before getting him into the back of a patrol car, according to a police report.
In other news, but still directly related to his troubles with the law, Williams recently said he'd be quitting stand up comedy and even tried to buy a massive boat to live on, but apparently, he wasn't being serious. His management, according to TMZ, said "Katt is definitely NOT retiring. He will be moving forward with the tour ... Friday is Texas, Saturday New Orleans, and on to Alabama." They add, "The reason why he made remarks was due to him feeling totally disrespected by all the things that happen to him in the city of Seattle. He had a moment where he felt very unappreciated. He now just wants to move forward from those unfortunate events and give his fans outstanding shows from this point forward."

We're confused; first Katt Williams states he's going to quit comedy, but in the same interview, he divulges his plans to buy a massive ferry to live on. Now, that's pretty funny, if you ask us.
The comedian told Komo 4 News of his decision. "I'm just gonna go ahead and announce my retirement from stand-up. I'm kinda done," he said "I've discussed it with my kids, I wasn't gonna do in the middle of a Seattle street, I was going to go to Los Angeles and do it in the offices of ICM or LiveNation." This is a result of his arrest, which happened after he was allegedly involved in a Seattle bar Fight. Because of this ruckus, Williams says he keeps getting kicked out of hotels, and wants to find a nice place to stay until this all blows over: the Washington State Ferry Rhododendron.
"If they will accept our bid... I will take me and my whole staff on that boat because I still have a court date four days from now and can't leave and I've been kicked out of four hotels in two days and I've been arrested by three different sets of officers four different times detained by two sets of officers," he said. The 48-car ferry Rhododendron had been reported sold for $300,000, but that bid has since been withdrawn
Katt Williams' slap on a Target employee has been caught on camera. The incident occurred on Sunday (December 2, 2012), just moments after the comedian led cops on a three-wheeled chase through the streets of Sacramento.
The clip contains no audio, but it shows Williams' in a branch of Target getting into an argument with an employee. From his body language, it's clear that the man was not looking for a fight though Williams suddenly wound up and slapped him in the face. The employee quickly pulls out his phone and calls the police. Hilariously, Katt quickly makes his getaway on an electric cart before ditching the vehicle for his three-wheeled motorcycle. He was not arrested, though a representative for the Yolo County District Attorney's office tells TMZ.com that the case is currently under review, though charges are yet to be filed against the comedian.
It's been a pretty bizarre few weeks for Williams, who was arrested in Oakland in November for allegedly hitting someone in the head with a bottle. He was so incensed by the incident that he threatened to cancel his stand-up show, telling TMZ.com, "Call Live Nation ... call the radio station ... the show's canceled." Turns out he was bluffing.

Katt Williams has been arrested by poice in Oakland after he was rumored to have been connected with a fight down at a club in the area.
The 41 year-old rapper is best known for his role as Money Mike in Friday After Next, as well as having a stint in Nick Cannon’s MTV improv show Wild N’ Out. However his wildness might well have got a little out of hand with the latest news. TMZ is reporting that it was last night (November 14) that Williams arrested at Kimball’s Carnival in East Oakland around 3am in the morning. That sort of time certainly suggests some boozing going on, and you know what that can mean.
There haven’t been any crystal clear details released about the incident yet but there’s evidently something afoot given that the rapper hasn’t yet been released from prison. It’s the last thing he needs too; it was just last month that Katt was arrested by police for allegedly pulling a gun on someone. That time he was released from custody without charges. Back in 2010 meanwhile cops in Atlanta issued an arrest warrant for him over an alleged battery at a 4 Seasons Hotel.
After writing and starring in the funny homeboys-and-hemp comedies "Friday" and "Next Friday," rapper-actor Ice Cube isn't quite out of ripe screwball ideas, but "Friday After Next" spreads them pretty thin. In fact, the "Pink Panther"-styled cartoon opening credits are the biggest laugh in the movie.
Story proper begins with slapstick cousins Craig (Cube) and Day-Day (Mike Epps) back in Compton after spending the last film in the suburbs. Desperate for rent money after a "ghetto Santa" breaks into their apartment at Christmas time, swiping presents and cash, the guys take seasonal security jobs at a dilapidated strip mall where their grumpy, squabbling dads (John Witherspoon and Don "D.C." Curry) have a barbecue joint.
Armed with nothing but a second-hand uniform and a whistle, thickwit Day-Day thinks he's suddenly a supercop, rousting church-lady carolers for loitering, but running away from gangbangers when he rubs them the wrong way. Meanwhile Craig has his eye on a drop-dead gorgeous salesgirl (K.D. Aubert) at the strip's new clothing outlet, Pimps & Hos. (Other stores include Holy Moly Donuts, check cashing, liquor and 94-cent stores, and Toyz in the Hood.)
