LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Actor and comedian Eddie Griffin is said to be okay after crashing a rare Ferrari during a movie promotion. The 38-year-old star of Deuce Bigalow and Undercover Brother was practicing for a charity race when he accidentally took a curve too fast and plowed the car into a concrete barrier. The upcoming race is part of a promotion for Griffin's new movie Redline. The 1.5 million dollar Ferrari Enzo was damaged beyond repair; it was one of only 400 ever made and belonged to the movie's executive producer Daniel Sadek.
Griffin was unhurt in the crash and appeared to take it all in stride saying, "Undercover brother's good at karate and all the rest of that, but the brother can't drive."
In a completely unrelated item, the dismembered body of an unidentified black man has been found in a Jack-in-the-Box dumpster in the Westlake District of Los Angeles. Police say the only lead they have is a set of car keys jammed into the victim's mouth.
(Alright, seriously -- does anybody really give a rat's ass whether or not a worthless modern-day minstrel like Eddie Griffin was okay after this crash? Come on, what was really more valuable -- the life of one painfully unfunny douchebag, or the 1.5 million dollar masterpiece he just totalled?)
