Actor Dennis Quaid has joined the list of actors that became infamous for an explicit rant on a movie set.
According to TMZ, video footage of the 61-year-old actor not holding anything back during an expletive-filled meltdown was recently released online.
Based on what he said, chances are that Dennis Quaid was addressing the movie’s director while ranting about the people that were interrupting his acting.
“What the f–k? Keep going. I am acting here and this d-ckhead wanders on to my set. I can’t even get a line out until Dopey the Dick starts whispering in your ear and you’re not even watching anymore.”
Quaid then becomes a little more direct when it comes to identifying the specific people that were distracting him – including “zombies,” “pu—es,” and even a baby.
“Don’t f–king ‘Dennis’ me! I am doing my job here. I’m a pro. This is the most unprofessional set I have ever been on. This is horse sh-t. I’ve got these f–king zombies over here that I have to look at. I have a bunch of p—ies staring at me. And this f–king baby! This is garbage…. Blow me!”
There are still quite a few things that are not very clear about this leaked video footage. For instance, neither the movie title nor the names of the cast and crew have been confirmed.
Multiple reports claim that Dennis Quaid’s most recent movie shoot was for the James Vanderbilt-directed film, Truth starring Oscar winner Cate Blanchett and Robert Redford. However, it is still not clear whether or not this video was recorded on a set for that particular film.

Another point that is unclear about this raw video footage is whether or not Dennis Quad’s meltdown was staged. Perhaps the explicit rant video is just a publicity stunt to promote the movie and help to get Dennis back into the spotlight by any means necessary.
On the other hand, explicit videos could be a family affair since Dennis Quaid’s older brother Randy made headlines with one of his own back in February.
Surprisingly, some people on Twitter are actually posting positive comments about Dennis Quaid’s explicit rant.
Actors are generally pompous and think too highly of the job. But it’s still work. Be professional. I don’t blame #dennisquaid. (Or Bale)
