John Badham

Genre: Action & Adventure

Release Date: May 18, 1990


Superstars Mel Gibson and Goldie Hawn team up with this non-stop action-comedy directed by John Badham. Hiding under the FBI Witness Protection Program, Rick Jarmin (Gibson) gets nervous when old flame Marianne Graves (Hawn) recognizes him. But before he can assume a new identity, the man he put in jail (David Carradine) is released and comes to pay his respects. Rick and Marianne find themselves thrown together on an exhilarating cross-country scramble, barely evading the gangsters, police and an amorous veterinarian (Joan Severance). Their whirlwind travels eventually lead to an unforgettable climax in an elaborate zoo exhibit. PBS-TV calls the film "a roller coaster of a movie with hot action and wild humor! This Bird soars!"

Cutty From The Wire Barks On Racist NYC Train Passenger [VIDEO]

Freddie Gray’s death and the protests that followed drew the line between police and Black and brown civilians deeper in the sand. Those feelings of angst resonated throughout the country, as shown in this footage of actor Chad L. Coleman reacting angrily to racist comments said by a New York City train passenger.

Famous for his roles as Cutty on Baltimore-based series The Wire and Tyrese on The Walking Dead, Coleman spoke with TMZ   after the video went viral.

Admittedly frustrated by the happenings in Baltimore, Coleman said he overheard a white man say, “No, we don’t know that ni**er,” on the 4 train, after deliberating with a friend about how they recognized him.

The actor says that he wasn’t drunk, if that’s what you were thinking. Peep the footage below.
