Seattle high school teacher Jesse Hagopian is suing the city for $500,000 following a weird, seemingly arbitrary incident of him being pepper sprayed while he attending a Martin Luther King Day rally. A video of the incident, obtained by the NAACP, seems to show Hagopian talking on his phone while walking by police when he is suddenly sprayed in the face by one of the officers. If he provoked the attack at all, that was not captured on video, and Hagopian himself said on his Facebook page that he was minding his own business.

At one point after the big main march, group of bike cops set up a line to keep us from marching. Some people walked through the line, but I didn't. When my phone rang, I turned away from the cops and began walking away to answer the phone. A cop then pepper sprayed me right in the face."

Hagopian's lawyer, James Bible, told The Guardian that "We wouldn't anticipate that there would be an apology in this case. Frankly the Seattle police department has a long history of violating civil rights" ... Discuss

Actor Ewan McGregor recently sat down with Yahoo! Movies to discuss his new film Last Days in the Desert, in which he plays both Jesus and the Devil. The movie tells the story of the 40 days Christ spent in the desert before beginning his ministry. McGregor was asked that because his “portrayal is of him as a man, not a deity,” how he thinks religious audiences will react.

I can’t imagine any issue with it, because there’s never a moment that he’s uncertain of his faith. I played him as the son of God and a man who is in the desert for 40 days and 40 nights to meditate on his path, the path ahead of him, which is to go out and preach and dedicate his life, ultimately and completely, to spreading the word of God, his father.

The film opened at Sundance, and will have a wide release later this year ... Discuss
