‘Better Call Saul’ Actor Confesses to Posing as War Veteran, Does Something Extremely Disturbing

Published

on

An actor who has made small appearances in “Better Call Saul” and “Longmire” has confessed to an extreme case of stolen valor, having cut off part of his right arm and posing as a war veteran.

If you think this is extreme behavior exhibited by a mentally unstable person, you’d be 100 percent correct. In fact, Todd Latourette, the actor in question, admitted that he suffers from bipolar disorder and was in the middle of an episode when the arm severing incident occurred.

“I severed my hand with a Skil saw,” he told the outlet. “The state of my mind was a psychotic episode.”

Surprisingly, the move worked and Latourette found work off the severed limb and a story about being a war veteran. Most recently, he appeared in Season 4, episode 5 of AMC’s “Better Call Saul.”

Latourette is back on his medication and says that living with the lie has been difficult, which is why he chose to come forward and admit to it now, despite the fact that it will likely hinder his acting career going forward.

“I was dishonorable. I’m killing my career by doing this, if anyone thinks this was for personal edification, that’s not the case,” says Latourette. “I’m ousting myself from the New Mexico Film Industry. And gladly so, just to say what I’ve said.”

Representatives for AMC did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment on the matter.

Latourette went on to say that he’s not looking for redemption for the heinous act he’s committed. Instead, he hopes his story will inspire others who are suffering from mental health issues to seek out help and treatment so they do not end up making a mistake like he did.

At the end of the day, at least Latourette is at least taking responsibility for his actions and owning up to his stolen valor. Hopefully he’s not receiving the help he needs to get better and avoid such dangerous behavior in the future.

Rest in peace, amigo.

When it comes to gritty guitars and even grittier songs, there is no act quite like that little ol’ band from Texas. ZZ Top mainlined American blues standards directly into the electric era of 1970’s rock, and then reinvented the genre once again with the synthesizers of the 1980’s.  From there, the band toured the world incessantly, bringing their grimy grooves and unforgettable stage presence to audiences from Dusseldorf to Delaware. Now, just weeks before the band was set to take to the road once again, one member of the holy triumvirate of honky-tonk has passed away. Dusty Hill, the bassist for ZZ Top, has died. He was 72. Billy Gibbons and Frank Beard of the Texas-based trio issued a statement to Variety on Tuesday, writing: “We are saddened by the news today that our Compadre, Dusty Hill, has passed away in his sleep at home in Houston, TX. We, along with legions of ZZ Top fans around the world, will miss your steadfast presence, your good nature and enduring commitment to providing that monumental bottom to the ‘Top’. We will forever be connected to that ‘Blues Shuffle in C.’” And then, echoing the sentiments of music fans the nation over: “You will be missed greatly, amigo,” the statement added. We couldn’t have said it better ourselves, so we’ll just leave you all with a classic. Make sure to turns those speakers up, y’all. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s5WB5ouP-8c

Legendary Guitarist Set to Boycott Venues Requiring Vaccine Proof

WOW!

With nearly half of Americans now fully vaccinated against COVID-19, the Biden administration has hit a wall.  The folks who are left unvaccinated are, by and large, abstaining by their own decision.  They don’t want a vaccine, and they don’t believe that the federal government has any right to tell them otherwise. But some private companies have begun suggesting that they may institute new regulations that would require customers or users to prove that they’ve been vaccinated in order to interact with them.  This could include some convert venues requiring that ticket holders can prove their vaccine status before seeing their favorite musical acts once they hit the road again. Legendary blues guitarist Eric Clapton isn’t into it.  At all. Eric Clapton has said he will not perform at any venues that require attendees to prove that they have received their full vaccination from the coronavirus. The musician and outspoken vaccine skeptic issued a statement that was highly critical of U.K. Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s announcement that vaccine passes would be required to enter nightclubs and other live performance venues in light of increasing coronavirus cases. The “Wonderful Tonight” singer issued a statement on the Telegram account of film producer and architect Robin Monotti, a known COVID-19 vaccination skeptic as well. In it, he issued a direct response to Johnson’s announcement and called the situation for those who do not wish to get the vaccine discriminatory. “Slow hand” got right to the point. “Following the PM’s announcement on Monday the 19th of July 2021 I feel honor-bound to make an announcement of my own,” Clapton said. “I wish to say that I will not perform on any stage where there is a discriminated audience present. Unless there is provision made for all people to attend, I reserve the right to cancel…
