Leading Off (6/9/10)

1. This fall, the producer of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre will film a post-feminist horror movie in Dallas called Stripper, starring the well-known porn actress Michelle Sinclair. I am absolutely certain, as I type this, that Robert Wilonsky has not only already put up a post about this but has called the production company to request a Q&A with Sinclair.

2. Yesterday afternoon, about 1,000 people surprised Ross Perot for his 80th birthday. Even Jay Leno sent along a video greeting. Coolest thing about the story, though, is that Cheryl Hall reports that Ebby Halliday helped plan the surprise, in part to get even with Perot for pranking her first. Seems awhile back Perot had a 9-foot nude topiary planted in Halliday’s backyard.

3. I’ll just give you the quote from the police documents, as reported by the DMN: “a struggle ensued, during which [Roberts] grabbed [the security guard’s] genitals and twisted, causing pain.” Check out the mugshot. Classic.
