Actors Garth 'Partox' Lagh
and Lum 'Dethuh' Journ
died instantly after running through a red light
and crashing into a highly volatile fuel transport
in the Omni-6 District
on Nova V
in the Darethian System
The driver of the transport suffered second degree burns, doctors at the local Omni-Med
hospital say he is in stable condition
Both actors were rising stars
in the holo-vid industry
with the roles of 'Sparky'
in the popular 29479 flick "Dude where is my Yalm?"
which was the first holo-vid featuring Atroxes
as lead roles in a comedy. Their second movie "Pies! Pies! Pies!"
was viewed by trillions of people
across the galaxy and was the most profitable movie in history
Their story started when the holo-vid company "Holo-Vids R' Us"
that was scouting Rubi-Ka in '79 for new faces
to take the lead for "Dude". Hundreds of Opifex, Solitus, and Nanomages applied with no luck, until a pair of unsuspected Atroxes
accidentally disrupted an audition in progress.
Director Jhonathan Lucas
and Writer/Producer Steven Perez
were impressed with the natural comic relief
, which both Atroxes reacted to each other while trying to apologize for the accident, and were offered the roles
It took about an hour for the duo to understand what they were being offered, and initially they declined
the roles until a compromise was reach where in addition to their salary as actors, they would be guaranteed a daily serving of pie
They quit their jobs as Bronto Burger employees
and started taking some acting classes
prior to the production of the movie.
A few protesters
had sent grid-mails to HRU concerned that the Atroxes were being exploited
and that their roles in the movie portrayed them as ignorant and dumb
The official response from the Writer/Producer Mr. Perez at the time was, "The roles I wrote for the characters was of two clueless people who were naive and at the same time funny. Partox and Dethuh just happen to be the perfect fit to portray those roles to perfection, and they are well paid for it."
HRU was working on a sequal to 'Dude where is my Yalm?" titled 'Dude, where is my Bride?'
in which they would reprise their roles as 'Sparky' and 'Botch' in search for their missing fiancees
on their home planet of Rubi-Ka
Mr. Perez has made a statement that "without them the sequel won't be the same, we'll be changing the roles and retitle the movie. Partox and Dethuh were great actors, and more important they were good honest atroxes with a lot of love in their hearts. They liked to make people laugh. I'll miss them."
Last night Mr. Farun Gart
, the president of their fanclub
was in tears when he announced over the gridfeed the passing of "the funniest guys in the universe"
HRU is colaborating with the fanclub to make funeral arrangements
for the actors. At the time of this report there has been an amazing response
from the public, billions
want to be at the funeral and want to see their idols one last time. HRU is working with media networks to trasmit the funeral through the gridfeed
to avoid a large mass of people which no planet is equipped to handle over such a short period of time.
