Bunny Double

Ahh, the special effects wizardry that is Hollywood ...

Anyone familiar with the reputation of renegade filmmaker Vincent Gallo (Buffalo '66) might know a little something about his craptacularly self-conscious art house specimen, 2003's The Brown Bunny. That movie, you might remember, earned notoriety chiefly for its hardcore scene in which Chloe Sevigny fellated Gallo in full-on, up-close-and-personal cinematic splendor.

Now it turns out that Gallo wine bottle actually involved an entirely different vintage. According to reports circulating on the Internet, Gallo employed a stunt penis, the owner of which is a guy named Jacob Christner, a twentysomething actor who says he has yet to be paid for his work.

Boy, oh, boy. Talk about getting the shaft. The usually verbose Gallo, for his part, is dodging direct comment on the veracity of Christner's claims. Look who's not so cocky ...

Unrelated, but while I'm thinking about it (and since I don't have your fifteen-dotted email address handy).... The Onion is reviewing a Dinosaur Jr re-release and the new Beck. 1) how 'bout your version of DJ's greatest hits? 2) TO doesn't care much for Beck's album. Is it worth downloading. I mean, BUYING?
Feel free to respond via email. Thx, buddy.

I almost hate knowing stuff like this, but Gallo himself stated (to Gawker) that he knoweth not that man who claimed to own the flute played by Ms Sevigny in Brown Bunny.

Definitely "Ewww..."worthy.
