Everyone knows that the drug lord that Johnny Depp played in Blow was based on a real person, and it turns out, that real person was released from prison to get surgery!
Removal of a potentially cancerous skin growth.
His name is George Jung, and he's only serving 15 years, but they thought it pertinent enough that this be done ASAP. He's due to be released in 2014, but the mole on his nose just had to go!
Luckily, there was no escape attempt. We figure that if your life is borrowed for a movie that movie-like things would happen all the time to you… but no, nothing cool happened here.
He went straight back to prison.
We wonder if he'll stay clean outside of prison — or if there will be a Blow 2: The Blowing down the road!!
