Michael Madsen ows QT a million dollars

Michael Madsen to Tarantino, Brosnan: IOU Big Bucks!

Every (reservoir) dog has his day—in court.



Michael Madsen filed for bankruptcy last month, and E! News has obtained court documents showing the actor owes some serious to cash to a couple of his celebrity friends.



The erstwhile Mr. Blonde is in debt to Quentin Tarantino (who directed Madsen in Reservoir Dogs and Kill Bill) for $1 million.

Madsen owes another $25,000 to his Die Another Day cohort Pierce Brosnan.



Other creditors include a host of posh hotels, car dealers, jewelers, clothing stores, banks and hospitals. There has been no comment from Madsen, Tarantino or Brosnan.



Madsen, 50, says he’s racked up $3.7 million in debt. While that may not sound too bad for a veteran character actor whose gross income averages about $50,000 a month, he states that after paying his bills, he nets -$3,392.



It’s enough to make a guy want to plan a bank heist.

Bankruptcy is never fun. It happened to Judy Garland - I think that was the most tragic case of bankruptcy that I’ve ever read about.

He has always done a lot of crappy movies, I guess always for financial reasons. But it’s not just recently to pay back this million dollar.

yeah but he was always a selective actor, a big time chooser,

he almost didnt do Reservoir Dogs because of the ear scene,


#18

All the actors / actresses do crappy movies… Some of them do more some of them less I think…

Which brings me to Uma Thurman in Batman & Robin… Or Samuel L. Jackson in Snakes on a Plane. Man, those movies suck ass.
