Bizarre Stabbing of Actor in Los Angeles Imitates Movie Plot

Actor Stabber Andre Bauth

Actor Andre Bauth is accused of stabbing fellow actor Clayton Haymes

Most actors know that they can be a temperamental and overemotional bunch — it’s part of the job description, after all — but they usually leave physical violence to choreographers or stunt doubles. On top of that, they usually insist they aren’t the characters they portray on screen. However, a bizarre stabbing that took place last week in Studio City suggests otherwise.

On Tuesday, September 8, actor Clayton Haymes returned home with fellow actor and landlord Andre Bauth after they and several others went out for dinner and drinks. According to Haymes, Bauth made a remark about how he would win five Oscars one day, which was taken as a joke. Haymes explains, “When he said ‘five Oscars,’ we all just kinda laughed a little bit, and he got really upset.”

Bauth then allegedly chased Haymes, grabbed a knife, and stabbed him in the chest. Bauth then fled the scene of the crime and the Los Angeles Police Department has been searching for him ever since.

But here is where it gets weirder: Bauth recently produced and starred in an indie film titled El Landlord in which he plays a landlord who kills his tenants. One of his murder victims is a character played by Haymes in the movie. Though it seems like a virtual blueprint for the crime, Haymes insists that he and Bauth were friendly up until the incident, adding, “I just don’t understand why he would want to do this to me ‘cause we’re friends.”

Prior to the stabbing, Bauth won a daytime Emmy for producing The Bay: The Series.
