Monkey Shines star denounces Scientology.

Jason Beghe, perenial tv guest star who first came to my attention as the hunky, hairy parapalegic in the horrible 80's horror film, Monkey Shines (the one about the evil helper monkey), has publicly renounced, denounced and attacked his former "religion".

I got this from the Huffington Post: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2008/04/15/jason-beghe-tv-and-movie_n_96723.html

In 2005, Beghe appeared in promotional spots for the Church of Scientology. But now Beghe has escaped the church after taking courses since 1994. He's made a video that's up on YouTube.

This is what he has to say: "Scientology is destructive and a rip-off." He also says: "It's very, very dangerous for your spiritual, psychological, mental, emotional health and evolution. I think it stunts your evolution. If Scientology is real, then something's f----ed up."

Well, since allegedly so many celebrity homos take to Scientology to help them cope with life in the closet, does this mean this hottie is a 'mo?

And more importantly, when does Monkey Shines II come out?
