Jewish writer: Gibson’s acting career cannot be resurrected


Mel Gibson’s career starring in big budget films is crucified, says the Jewish writer of Lethal Weapon 4, in which Gibson starred.

Jonathan Lemkin, who wrote the big budget 1998 film, said that the drunken anti-Semitic rant Gibson gave after he was arrested for driving under the influence in July 2006 sank his acting career.

“I don’t know if there will be a Lethal Weapon 5 because I don’t think studio bosses will have him in those kind of big summer films,” Lemkin told WENN, according to “He did make hateful statements. I don’t know how his rehabilitation went – and he is a wonderful actor and filmmaker – but he is a hate monger.”
