Actor Admits To Cutting His Own Arm Off To Get More Roles

Todd LaTourrette lied about being a war veteran to land more acting jobs. Is the actor's admission a little too late?

Actor Todd Latourette went to some extreme measures to improve his career by cutting off his own arm so that he could more easily pose as a war veteran.

Todd explains that he cut off his arm with a saw and quickly cauterized the wound, during a manic state that took place when he was off his bipolar medication. Miraculously, his plan somewhat worked, he explains that "the film industry obviously took a different angle [when they saw me with one arm]. That I was different. And so they liked that."
