Famous 'Fat' Guy Gets Car Impounded

11/29/2010 8:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Frank Medrano is best known for playing a guy named Fat Ass in "Shawshank Redemption" -- and one named Fat Mancho in "Sleepers" -- so maybe it's a good thing the cops impounded his car Saturday night ... walking is good for you.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Medrano was pulled over for making an unsafe lane change. We're told when cops ran his license, they discovered it was suspended ... so they impounded his 2007 Cadillac for 30 days.

It's a good thing cops didn't lock him up, otherwise he'd have been yelling "I don't belong here! I want to go home!" ("Shawshank" joke. Great movie.)

I just watched "Sleepers" yesterday, I love this movie! Frank Medrano's character is very nurturing in a street smart way. Also my favorite actor, Brad Renfro (RIP) is in it. The movie is about some kids who grew up in Hell's Kitchen and they get into trouble and get sent to a prison for boys. There, they get abused in so many ways and they come out as different people. They're forced to revisit the situation years later and have the opportunity to gain vengance on the guards who abused them. Very smart movie, very compelling. Miss you Brad!! And you're right, get rid of this DAMN SPAM TMZ!!!

The police impounded his car for 30 days for driving on a suspended license? What happened to "Due Process"??? just where did this happen?

Although I'd hardly call him "famous" at least you aren't saying he's a star. Normally you call anyone that appeared in anything ever a "star". This guy was in Shawshank for maybe 5 minutes.

Love Frank Medrano! Guy's been in a dozen movies and is awesome in every single one of them. He's great in Coyote Ugly and The Suicide Kings and Amongst Friends. If you don't know his work then get with it, people!

If TMZ was 1 physical person, they'd be an obsessive stalker. You're worse then Al Qaeda. And I wanna kick that surfer blonde *** in the balls.
