What happens when Bullet Tooth Tony takes on the Greek God of war Ares? Ares (Tamer Hassan) wiped the floor with Bullet Tooth Tony (Vinnie Jones) in a public brawl at a Hollywood hotel.
The footbrawl at the Chateau Marmont between Vinnie Jones and Tamer Hassan was captured by the hotel’s security cameras, but the hotel on Sunset Boulevard has so far refused to release the tape.
They apparently turned down offers of upto £300,000 for the footage. For those who have no idea what all the fuss is about, here’s a bit of background:-
Vinnie Jones is a former footballer turned actor who has starred in films including “Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels,” and “Snatch.”
More importantly, he’s got a long history of public brawls - including a barfight, assaulting a neighbor, and an air rage incident.
Tamer Hassan, who moved from amateur boxing to movies, most recently had a role in Kick-Ass and also as the Greek God of war Ares in the remake of the epic Clash of the Titans.
Both are co-starring in an new film called Bloodout due to begin shooting next weekend. Apparently the blood-letting began a bit ahead of schedule – witnesses present at the hotel said there was blood everywhere, with Hassan all bruised up and a drunk Vinnie Jones in dire need of stitches.
The Chateau Marmont, a popular celebrity haunt, is most famously known as the place where John Belushi died in 1982. The hotel offers 63 suites and bungalows. The adjacent Bar Marmont is still one of the hottest bars in tinsel town. There’s also a heated outdoor pool with gardens and a large sun pati0.
