Oh, look at that, it’s Nick Stahl’s turn to fall victim once again to that darn Terminator curse. Last we heard of the ill fates befalling actors who played John Connor, Edward Furlong was being arrested for domestic violence in May. Nick’s latest misfortune is a little better: He was booked yesterday for misdemeanor lewd conduct after reportedly appearing to touch himself inappropriately at a porn shop in Hollywood, TMZ reports. He was released a short time later. The gossip site says one of the officers who arrested him was the guy who apprehended Fred Willard for a similar misunderstanding in a theater earlier this year. (We’ll get back to you as we look into whether Fred has some connection to the Terminator franchise.)
It was no doubt a frustrating end to a troubling year for Stahl, whose wife Rose had reported him missing in May, before informing everyone that he had been found and was checked into rehab. He went missing again in July and again returned, enrolling in AA, according to his wife.

Terminator Actor Nick Stahl Is Reported Missing By His Wife
Christian Bale and Thomas Dekker, you might want to watch your step in the coming months; the terrible year of John Connors continues. Edward Furlong, who played Connor in Terminator 2, was arrested early this morning at LAX for felony domestic violence after grabbing his girlfriend’s arm in an argument, leaving visible marks, TMZ reports. At press time, the 35-year-old actor remained in jail with bail set at $50,000. Earlier this year, Furlong, who has struggled with addiction to cocaine and heroin for years, claimed he was robbed by a man in L.A.’s Skid Row. In 2011, he was jailed for violating a restraining order that kept him away from his estranged wife.
And just to recap what’s happened to the other John Connors of the world. In May, Terminator 3′s Nick Stahl checked himself into rehab after an episode in which his wife reported him missing and he was spotted hanging around Skid Row too. He then went missing again, but eventually returned home and was attending AA meetings. Read more…
Days after reporting husband Nick Stahl missing, Rose Stahl said the Terminator 3 actor has entered a 30-day rehab program at an undisclosed facility to overcome the worst addiction cycle of his life, she told People. “Now that he is safe, it’s time to focus back on healing,” Rose told the magazine.
Stahl, 32, had been living apart from his wife and their 2-year-old daughter, Marlo. Rose filed papers in February requesting that his visits with their daughter be monitored, citing concerns over his drug use. She filed a missing persons report last week, saying she hadn’t seen him since May 9. But on Saturday, Nick emailed friends saying that he had checked into rehab.
“I gotta lotta hope,” Rose told People in an email of her husband’s recovery, adding that she hadn’t intended to publicize that he was missing.
Stahl got his first big role at 13 in the Mel Gibson movie Man Without a Face and played John Connor in 2003’s Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines. He also starred in HBO’s Carnivale from 2003-2005. Though Rose said he hasn’t taken any acting gigs in recent months, he has starring roles in three independent movies listed in post-production on IMDb.

Earlier: Terminator Actor Nick Stahl Is Reported Missing By His Wife
Nick Stahl‘s wife, Rose, has filed a missing persons report with the LAPD, saying that he’s been missing since May 9. Stahl, as you know, played John Connor in Terminator 3 and was also on Carnivale, a show we loved. We checked his Twitter account and his last tweet was on May 1. Rose has stated she saw him last a week ago, and sources revealed the worrying news to TMZ that he’d been hanging out in Skid Row, L.A. and may have gotten himself into trouble. This may be connected to the fact that Rose also filed papers in February this year stating that she was no longer living with her husband and wanted the court to restrict him to monitored visitations with their 2-year-old daughter because Stahl was reportedly doing drugs. His spokesperson had refused to comment on the situation. We just hope he’s OK and surfaces again!
