Green has a son named Kassius from a previous relationship with actress Vanessa Marcil.
Flav may do time
Flavor Flav (a/k/a William Jonathan Drayton Jr.) was arrested Wednesday on felony and misdemeanor charges after arguing with his fiancée and threatening to attack her teenage son with a knife, Las Vegas police said.
The former rapper and reality-TV star, was arrested about 3:30 a.m. at a home several miles southwest of the Las Vegas Strip, Las Vegas police Officer Bill Cassell said.
Patrol officers did not report that anyone was injured.
Flav, 53, was being held on $23,000 bail at Clark County jail pending an initial court appearance Thursday. It was not immediately clear if he had a lawyer.
But he probably does.
Flav's criminal history includes arrests and convictions on traffic infractions (including the ever-popular driving without a license), a month in jail for assaulting his then-girlfriend in 1991, and three months in prison for shooting at a neighbor in New York in 1993.
When Tattle comic-book correspondent Jerome Maida told us about an all-female version of "The Expendables" called "The ExpendaBelles," we thought he was kidding.
Now "ExpendaBelles" is the official title and any actress who's kicked butt over the last 40 years is being talked about for a role.
Maida reports that Karen Sheperd ("Cyborg 2"), the legendary "Karate Diva," is talking comeback and may ring the belle in the new film, to be helmed by Adi Shankar.
"Some fans tweeted as early as July about wanting to see me in the next 'Expendables,' " Sheperd told Maida, before singing Shankar's praises.
"The opportunity to work with the producer of one of my all-time favorite films - 'The Grey' - would be exciting. I was haunted for days [in a good way] by that film, it was so thought-provoking and that last shot at the end of the credits . . . brilliant. People who did not stick around for that final surprise shot missed a huge message."
Fans haven't seen Sheperd since 2003's "Midnight Expression," but she said, "This year I did a film called 'M.A.R.R.A.,' which is in postproduction, and some TV and plays, so I'm still at it. I can understand how it may appear that I retired because I took a long break. I cared for my father in Oregon for a couple years before he passed away.
"During that time, I re-examined my goals. I declined a few action offers and when I returned home, dove back into my acting studies. I have more than enough action footage, so honing my acting skills seemed to be the direction toward getting more diverse roles. Acting is what I truly love doing. It's the most challenging endeavor, even more than becoming a No. 1 Martial Arts Champion."
An action trailblazer, Sheperd paved the way for film heroines like Angelina Jolie, Michelle Rodriguez, Milla Jovovich, Linda Hamilton and Uma Thurman.
"I definitely helped pave the way," she said. "The low-budget chop-socky indies were the only ones willing to cast women in lead roles. They already had a built-in market with action and martial-arts fans. I couldn't accept why bigger producers wouldn't take a chance on a female martial arts celebrity and give her a shot.
" . . . If a gutsy producer had given me the same opportunity as my male counterparts - like Chuck Norris - then perhaps I could have broken through to the mainstream. If I had a dollar for every time I heard, 'You're wonderful, but no one wants to see a woman fight.' Ha! I was ahead of my time.
" Linda Hamilton was fantastic in the 'Terminator' films," Sheperd said. "I so saw myself in that part. I'm so impressed with Angelina Jolie, too. I knew her when she was 17 and watched her blossom. She certainly was in the right place at the right time and besides her career achievements she's a very nice person. Besides co-starring with her, I helped her train for 'Cyborg 2.' I have a fond memory of teaching her how to make a proper fist."
As for other actresses, Sheperd said, "It's a wide-open field," but she laments that Hollywood still casts big-name actresses in starring roles and lets stunt people do all the work, rather than cast people who can actually fight.
As for a role in "ExpendaBelles," Sheperd said, "I'm definitely deserving."
