Todd Latourette, a one-armed actor in Albuquerque, New Mexico, is coming clean about his past and it turns out the true story is a real whopper.
He spoke with the city’s local news station KOB-TV recently where he admitted that he did not lose his arm while serving in the armed services. In reality, he says he sawed it off during a “psychotic episode.” Since then, he began claiming to be a veteran, which certainly helped him gain acting work in films like George Clooney’s The Men Who Stare At Goats, as well as appearing on shows like Longmire and in Better Call Saul.
“I severed my hand with a Skilsaw,” he explained in the interview. “The state of my mind was a psychotic episode.”
He later explained that he cauterized the wound himself.
