Planet of the Apes: Are people playing a game? Who can sue a studio for the most money? Seems hundreds of people that played extras in the recent Planet of the Apes are filing a class action suite against Fox Entertainment for emotional distress. The extras claim "they were exposed to around 80,000lbs of Fuller's Earth powder, containing - they say - a lung irritant and known carcinogen called crystalline silica" during a shoot in a desert outside LA that lasted almost two weeks. In addition to damages, they also want any profits from the film.

Seems he's the product of "a hot little night back in the 'hood." He'd be replacing Bill Murray, who didn't want to return for the sequel because he didn't get along with the filmmakers.
