Quirky actor Randy Quaid will take to the stage this evening with a song about the "Hollywood star whackers" he believes are out to get him.
Quaid, who fled to Canada to escape the alleged celebrity slayers, is joining the band The Town Pants for a gig at Vancouver's Commodore Ballroom, where he'll perform the ditty "Star Whackers."
The Town Pants approached Quaid to host their show, and he mentioned that he also wanted to sing, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
"He goes, 'Well, actually I've got some other things on the go, thinking that maybe I'd like to debut a song,'" says lead singer Aaron Chapman. "And we go, 'Oh yeah, what's that?' And he goes, ‘Star Whackers.' And we're like, 'Uh, sure.'"
As Marquee previously reported, Quaid and his wife Evi — who are facing burglary charges and misdemeanor counts in the U.S. and are wanted on $500,000 bench warrants — applied for refugee status in Canada in October and were recently granted permission to stay in the country.
"Thank you for your warm welcome," Quaid said at a news conference last month. "Thank you for giving us the opportunity to live in peace."
