Quaid, 61, is known to be a perfectionist, but this is ridiculous.
He apparently goes off after someone out sight of the video shot walks onto the set and distracts him. “I can’t even get a line out until dopey the dick starts whispering in your ear, you’re not even watching anymore,” he shouts, launching his epic rant.
Quaid is currently filming the movie “Truth,” about former CBS News Anchor Dan Rather’s epic clash with the Bush administration over a report that questioned Bush’s service in the National Guard during the Vietnam War.
Rather eventually lost his job over the report, which was hotly contested by Bush operatives, who unearthed some sketchy reports on which the report was based.
Quaid is starring with two industry veterans, Cate Blanchett and Robert Redford, but he’s also working with rookie director James Vanderbilt.
Apparently no one escapes his wrath. He calls the set the “most unprofessional” he’s ever been on.
Whether he’s yelling at Vanderbilt on the “Truth” set is unknown at the moment.
The whole scene was captured on what appears to be a bystander’s cell phone. The video was posted on YouTube where it is beginning to go viral. So far, it has nearly a half million views.
Although some suspect that the clip is a put up, Quaid is definitely in rare form.
“I can’t even get a line out until dopey the dick starts whispering in your ear,” Quaid yells. “You’re not even watching anymore,” he adds. You can just imagine the spittle flying out of his mouth.
But that’s not all.
“Don’t fu*king Dennis me,” Quaid shoots back, after someone apparently tries to calm him down.
“I am doing my job here. I am a pro. This is the most unprofessional set I have ever been on,” he rants.
(Get it: He’s a pro…right)
“This is horseshit. I have these fu*king zombies over here that I have to look at. I have a bunch of pussies staring at me and this fu*ing baby! This is garbage!”
After someone tries again to get him to simmer down, he gives them the ultimate blow off.
Blow me,” he shouts.
