Proving that drugged up drunk driving celebrities aren’t the only ones to appear behind bars now-a-days, Die Hard director John McTiernan was sentenced to four months in prison on Monday for lying to federal agents. McTiernan was one of seven defendants who pleaded guilty in connection with the conspiracy and racketeering case of Anthony Pellicano, who was charged with illegally wiretapping dozens of Hollywood celebrities and movie executives. The Predator director lied to the FBI about asking Pellicano to wiretap Rollerball producer Charles Roven. McTiernan had pleaded guilty to the charge in April 2006.
McTiernan’s filmography also includes: The Hunt for Red October, Medicine Man, Last Action Hero, Die Hard: With a Vengeance, The 13th Warrior, The Thomas Crown Affair, and Basic.
