Fred Willard is Arrested and Then Fired for Lewd Acts!

Following in the steps as Pee Wee Herman, Fred Willard was arrested for laying hands….on himself.  At 8:05 PM on Wednesday Willard was taken into custody by uncover officers reportedly engaged in a lewd act in an adult movie theater!


Willard’s attorney, Paul Takakian was quick to release a statement claiming that Willard is innocent of all wrong doing.  He told Fox411,

With all due respect to the individual officer, our belief that Fred did nothing in any violation of any law. We will be working vigorously to clear his name in this matter.”

At age 72 Willard is somewhat of an iconic figure with years in Hollywood. Recently most known for his role in “Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Bergundy” and “Best in Show”.


Guilty until proven innocent is apparently the case when it comes to Willard’s job.  He was currently working as a narrator on a show called “Market Warriors”.  The operative word there is “was”.  On news of his arrest, the station fired him.  A spokesperson for the station released a statement to the press,

“Given the unfortunate news reported today, effective immediately Fred Willard no longer will be involved with the `Market Warriors’ series,”

Innocent or not, I’m sure they don’t’ want to employ a creepy old man that hangs out at XXX theaters.

TVST => I actually can’t believe that XXX movie theaters still exist.  With internet p0rn and paid per view why would you sit in a seat that someone else sat in, to watch p0rn.  Isn’t the whole reason to watch porn to “lay hands on oneself”? At least that’s how the younger generation sees it.  Rated X theaters are definitely an old man thing.  A dirty old man thing.  Is this what undercover cops do in Hollywood? Do they just wait until they hear a zipper and pounce?  How’s that for a job.

In case you were wondering what movie Willard owes this embarrassment to, it could be one of three that were playing in the theater at the time of his arrest: “Follow Me 2”, “Step Dad No. 2” or  “The Client List”.  Oy Vey!
