    Default James Bond Director Arrested In Drag During Prostitution Sting

    N. Zealand filmmaker arrested in drag in US prostitution sting
    Feb 02 8:42 PM US/Eastern


    New Zealand filmmaker Lee Tamahori, who directed the James Bond movie "Die Another Day," has been arrested in a Hollywood prostitution sting while dressed in drag.

    Tamahori, 55, was arrested on January 8 when he allegedly sought sex with an undercover policeman while clad in women's clothes, according to a criminal complaint filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court.

    "Mr Tamahori was arrested for soliciting. I can confirm he was dressed in women's clothing at the time of the arrest," Officer Jason Lee of the Los Angeles Police Department said.

    Prosecutors confirmed they had filed two misdemeanour charges against the Hollywood filmmaker: agreeing to engage in an act of prostitution and unlawfully loitering on Hollywood's Santa Monica Boulevard.

    "He was arrested after approaching an undercover officer who was sitting in his car and offering to perform a sex act," Frank Mateljan of the Los Angeles City Attorney's office.

    "The defendant was dressed in drag, loitering on the sidewalk," the spokesman said.

    Tamahori also directed last year's action adventure "XXX: State of the Union" with Samuel L. Jackson and Willem Dafoe and 2001's "Along Came a Spider" with Morgan Freeman.

    He is due to appear in court in Los Angeles on February 24 to be arraigned on the two charges. He is free on 2,000 dollars bail, according to the City Attorney's office.

    Tamahori's lawyer, celebrity attorney Mark Geragos, did not immediately return calls for comment on the arrest of the filmmaker.

    He started out as a commercial artist and photographer in New Zealand, before entering the film industry in the late 1970 as a boom microphone operator, going on to become an assistant director.

    Tamahori got his break in Hollywood directing an episode of the hit television series "The Sopranos" in 2000 and went on do "Spider" the following year, before making "Die Another Day" starring Piece Brosnan and Oscar-winning Bond girl Halle Berry in 2002.

    Yeah, what the fuck? He can't be that broke. Maybe he was hoping to sign Eddie Murphy for his next project.

    Default Director Tamahori Agrees to Plea Deal

    Director Tamahori Agrees to Plea Deal

    LOS ANGELES (AP) - Film director Lee Tamahori pleaded no contest to criminal trespass in return for two prostitution charges against him being dropped, authorities said Thursday.

    The plea deal stemmed from Tamahori's Jan. 8 arrest for allegedly soliciting an undercover police officer in Hollywood and offering to perform a sex act for money.

    The two dropped charges, said city attorney spokesman Frank Mateljan, were misdemeanor counts of solicitation and loitering with the intent to commit prostitution.

    Tamahori, who was not present at the hearing in Superior Court, was placed on three years probation, ordered to attend an AIDS education course and perform 15 days of community service for the Hollywood Beautification Project, Mateljan said.


    He will not be able to loiter, congregate in alleys or accept rides with the intent to engage in prostitution, the spokesman said.


    At the time of his arrest, the 55-year-old director wore an off-the-shoulder dress and black wig, and allegedly approached the officer and got into his car, Mateljan said.


    ``We're pleased with the outcome, he's pleased with the outcome, and he's back at work'' directing, Tamahori's attorney, Mark Geragos, said.


    The New Zealand native's directing credits include Pierce Brosnan's 2002 James Bond film ``Die Another Day,'' last year's ``xXx: State of the Union'' and 1994's ``Once Were Warriors.''


    Tamahori is set to direct Jessica Biel, Nicolas Cage and Julianne Moore in ``Next,'' a sci-fi thriller based on Philip Dick's ``The Golden Man,'' Variety reported Thursday.
