It’s One Thing To Mess With Roman Polanksi, But Seymour Cassel? No!

Bert & MaxWell, no, Seymour Cassel has not been detained by Swiss officials on 32-year-old charges of raping a 13-year-old girl.  He has, however, been suspended from the Screen Actors Guild after being found guilty of “conduct unbecoming of a member,” stemming from a May incident in which he allegedly sexually harassed staff members during a May meeting.  It should be noted that he was found guilty by an “internal trial board,” so it seems that SAG is its own sovereign nation or is part of the fleet of human survivors fleeing the Cylon pursuit.

It’s just hard to believe that this kind of behavior is capable by the man who stole our (my) heart as Bert Fischer, beloved father of Max and devoted husband to the late Eloise (in Jumped The Snark favorite Rushmore).

Oh no! Apparently him and Polanksi are buds.  Maybe this isn’t so outrageous after all.

Well, hopefully the only thing they have in common is a love for cigars.

Let’s just cross our fingers that Wes Anderson doesn’t shoot his next film in Switzerland (although even if he does Anderson might not show either).
