I’m late to this one — I’d planned to blog over the weekend, but not with high-speed internet access in our hotel being billed at $7 for 30 minutes, no sir — so I apologize if you’ve read it before.
Besides, when the man who played Jesus in Mel Gibson’s “Passion” is struck by lightning, I think that can’t get enough attention. Plus, there are weird, somebody-up-there-doesn’t-like-me weirder-than-weird details:
An assistant director on the film, Jan Michelini, was also hit — for the second time in a few months. The first time, a lightning fork struck his umbrella during filming on top of a hill near Matera in Italy, causing light burns to the tips of his fingers, VLife, a supplement to Variety publications said in its October issue. A few months later the second strike happened, a few hours from Rome.
Memo to Mrs. Gibson: Make sure the insurance is up to date.
