‘CLUELESS’ ACTRESS STACEY DASH CHARGED WITH DOMESTIC BATTERY
NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. (AP) – An actress known for appearing in the 1990s comedy, “Clueless,” is facing a domestic battery charge in Florida.
A Pasco County Sheriff’s Office report says 52-year-old Stacey Dash was arrested Sunday night.
The report says Dash got into a verbal argument with a man at a New Port Richey apartment. Deputies say she pushed the man and slapped his face. Investigators noted that the man sustained red scratch marks on his left arm.
The reports say no alcohol or drugs were involved.
Dash was released on bail Monday morning. Jail records didn’t list an attorney.
Besides portraying Dionne Davenport in “Clueless,” Dash has film and television credits beginning in the 1980s. She also worked as a Fox News commentator from 2014 to 2017.
WESLEY SNIPES SAYS HE’S MOVING ON FROM ‘BLADE’ CHARACTER
LOS ANGELES (AP) – The news that another actor was cast as vampire hunter Blade came as a surprise to Wesley Snipes, who portrayed the character in three successful films, but he says he’s moving on.
Marvel Studios announced at this summer’s Comic-Con that the Oscar winner Mahershala Ali would play the comics character in its blockbuster cinematic universe.
Snipes says it’s not about the two actors. He says he’s “created something that others want to carry on.”
The martial arts-trained actor says he’s working on a different action-focused project.
Snipes spoke to The Associated Press while promoting “Dolemite (DOH’-luh-myt) Is My Name,” which opens Oct. 4. He plays the director and co-star of “Dolemite” in the Netflix movie about filmmaker Rudy Ray Moore and his creation of the 1975 Blaxploitation classic.
