Fred Willard may have pulled a Pee Wee Herman aka Paul Reubens who was arrested in 1991 for pretty much doing the same "lewdy" thing! The actor was arrested for lewd conduct Wednesday night in Hollywood by the L.A. cops who were doing a routine cleanup of an adult movie theater in Hollywood. Apparently, they found Willard alone and engaging in an unspecified lewd act. Salacious! And TMZ offers a more salacious account and says it happened inside the Tiki theater.
The 72-year-old actor, perhaps best known in his role in "Best in Show" as a dog-show announcer was released after midnight without posting bail.
So in the words of Mister Willard, let's ask:
Maybe the actor was doing research for his new role in the movie "The Yank!" HA!
UPDATE: PBS has reportedly fired Willard from his role as host of their "Antiques Roadshow" spin-off called "Market Warriors." All unaired episodes of the show will be shelved and re-tracked by "Roadshow" host Mark Walberg NOT Wahlberg mind you!
