Dice Clay reportedly will star in 'Cop and Comedian' as the cop

October 25, 1990|By Los Angeles Times

HOLLYWOOD -- Andrew Dice Clay's big-screen caree continues with ups and downs.

Watch for an announcement, reportedly from Warner Bros., that the controversial comic will star in a buddy picture, "The Cop and the Comedian," playing . . . the cop.

20th Century Fox, which earlier dropped Clay's concert film from its release schedule, has now quietly dropped the foul-mouthed funnyman from its feature "The Gossip Columnist," according to sources.

A familiar Clay image -- his sneering face -- turns up on unauthorized T-shirts and bumper stickers, covered with a red circle and slash, plus the words "No Dice." The merchandise is being used as a fund-raising "giveaway" by the Bayview chapter the National Organization for Women in Newport Beach, Calif.
