Dell Dude Busted for Marijuana.
    #1298911 - 02/11/03 08:12 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Ben Curtis, the 22-year actor who plays Steven, the Dell Guy in the TV ads, was arrested in New York at the weekend for marijuana possession. How long before the Winona Defence is wheeled into gear: I was only researching a part, your honour.

The Dell Guy, is unknown to most people in the UK, except for saddo business-types who watch CNN in hotels.

The Dell Guy character as portrayed on the ads surely smokes pot and, from time to time, crack. He's a humorous young man who promotes Dell computers on the television. But maybe for not much longer: let's see how grown-up Dell is about this.

We are indebted to The Smoking Gun for alerting us to Mr. Curtis' predicament. ?

Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded.

RE: "The Dell Guy character as portrayed on the ads surely smokes pot and, from time to time, crack..."

Not crack.... That guy is a classic brother pothead if I have ever saw one.  :grin:

I feel it was a PR stunt anyway, cuz Dell had to relize how this guy would be stereotyped from the very start of his contract anyway. It kinda reminds me of what Hollywood does when they want to bring atention to an actor's sex life... (the actor suddenly get busted in a sex act, legal or ileagle).
