Movie meets reality as Stubblefield sentenced to jail - YAHOO!

In this instance, what happened in the movies became reality.

Former Kansas and San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle Dana Stubblefield, who once played the role of a prisoner in the 2000 Ehren Kruger film Reindeer Games, has been sentenced to jail.

Stubblefield, the NFL defensive player of the year in 1997, was sentenced to 90 days behind bars for stealing his ex-girlfriend's mail, according to the Sacramento Bee. Stubblefield had admitted to submitting a change of address form so the ex-girlfriend's mail would be delivered to him. He then collected her unemployment checks.

The 40-year-old Stubblefield was on probation for lying to investigators about using steroids during his playing days. Hopefully, he will avoid fights in prison, something he was unable to do in the movie.

Cameron's 3-D Cirque movie to film on Strip

James Cameron is turning his 3-D cameras on Cirque du Soleil, executive-producing a film that will collectively promote the resident shows on the Strip.

The theatrical feature will be directed by Andrew Adamson, whose credits include "Shrek" and "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe."

Cirque du Soleil spokesman Lou D'Angeli confirmed the feature will film locally and highlight the Las Vegas titles, "a tremendous representation of the brand."

In a news release, Cameron said the film will be "a transporting, dreamlike narrative" that will bring "the Cirque du Soleil experience to a worldwide audience through the magic of 3-D cinema."
