Randy Quaid and his wife, Evi, have been scheduled to appear in Santa Barbra today for an arraignment in their felony vandalism case. If they don't leave Canada to return to the states for the hearing, they could be in some serious trouble.
This is by far one of the strangest conspiracy theories we have ever heard.
For the first time since they have adopted their, um, "unique" Bonnie & Clyde lifestyle, Randy and Evi Quaid have agreed to sit down for an interview. This morning, they broke their silence by speaking to Good Morning America about their criminal activities and lack of time spent in court/prison.
But those topics never really came up. Instead, the pair went off on the wildest tangent imaginable, concocting a story that their biggest fear was that they would return to Hollywood only to be "whacked" by people who are looking to kill them for financial gain.
They say it's happened before, it will happen again and they don't want it happening to them!
According to the pair, there are several parties interested in killing them for profit. Theses supposed murders, according to them, include an estate planner, an accountant and the mafia. Evi goes on to call themselves "refugees," who both "genuinely feel" that these supposed "star whackers" are out to get them. Randy explains that these supposed killers have gone so far as to "follow" them around, "tag" their cell phones and hack their computer.
Then Randy puts forth that "it is very possible" that these same people could have "murdered" Heath Ledger and David Carradine for profit as well as "set up” Robert Blake! The couple even go on to say that these fiends other targets include Lindsay Lohan,Britney Spears and Mel Gibson, with Evi sighting Mel's much publicized recorded hate-rants as evidence of these alleged evil-doers handiwork. She explains:
"I think he was drugged. I think he was slipped a mickey … to steal his money and ruin him."
Oh wait, here's the strangest part of the interview: both denied being "mentally unstable or under the influence of drugs. "
Anyone else not convinced about that?!

Despite making claims that they're being targeted by "Hollywood Star Whackers" and escaping to Canada, Randy Quaid swears that he and his wife Evi are not "crazy."
After his immigration hearing on Thursday, Randy told reporters:
"Up until a year ago, Evi and I had never had any run-in with the law whatsoever. We are not criminals, nor are we fugitives from justice, nor are we crazy. We are simply artists and film-makers being racketeered on."
We truly can't believe how crazy this story is getting.
Randy and Evi Quaid were arrested in Vancouver on Wednesday after police discovered that the couple were wanted on several outstanding warrants in the U.S. for failing to show up in court.
And now the couple is asking for refuge in Canada because they feel they are being persecuted in the U.S. and may be "murdered" under suspicious circumstances.
During their immigration hearing, they have asked to seek asylum so that they can escape "Hollywood star whackers" who they believe murdered David Carradine and Heath Ledger.
OMG!!! Are they serious???? What the hell??
To make things even more unbelievable, Quaid says he did not go to Canada to escape the warrants, but instead was considering relocating to Vancouver to restart his career. During the hearing, he replied, "I love Canada. It's been a very welcoming nation to me. I would not do anything to besmirch my reputation."
Too late, buddy, too late!! Randy Quaid makes National Lampoon's Cousin Eddie look completely normal and sane.
As we reported earlier, Randy and Evi Quaid have been arrested and detained in Canada. The Vancouver police would not confirm the arrest, but would confirm that they do have an American couple in custody with outstanding US warrants.
Speaking of those warrants, upon hearing the news of their arrest, the judge overseeing their felony burglary case has upped their bail from $50,000 each to $500,000!
Even if they had all the money Randy made from those National Lampoon movies at their disposal, they still wouldn't be able to afford this!
Guess it means back to jail for them! (Good! It's where they belong!)
After bailing on their last court appearance, the police have finally found Randy Quaid and his wife Evi - in Vancouver!
The pair were arrested sometime in the last 48 hours for violations to the Immigration Act. We're not sure if that is code for jumping the border, but we have a strong feeling that it is!
The Canadian Border Services Agency is not prepared to talk about the case at this time and there is no news whether the pair will be brought back to the U.S anytime to face their other charges, like that little felony burglary charge.
But, you know, if you mounties want to keep them, that'd be fine by us!
