According to court documents, Madsen failed to show up for a hearing in his child/spousal support case last week ... so the judge found him in contempt and issued a warrant for his arrest.

Charlie Sheen pays his child support, right? WINNING again, Charlie.

This deadbeat? LOSER! Hope he goes to jail. You have to be real s*** to beat your own kids out of money they need to live.

If women want to split with the kids, why do they always want to ruin men? I bet it costs her a lot of money to buy the Mercedes and clothing, etc, NOT 750K to raise children.

This guy already has over 12 projects in post-production this year. Last year he had over 12 projects listed. He is a 'character' actor, and a great one at that. He is not a leading man. Remember Donnie Brasco, he was great! He is working constantly but not making the big bucks of a pureass sucker like Tom Cruise. NO ONE can deliver a line like Michael Madson. The problems with his back support problems sound fishy. He and his sister have always been very family first.

Q    

Guess life is tough when you're stuck, like Fonzie and George Kostanza are, with the one character bit. Song "Stuck in the Middle with you" playing in everyones head anytime they see you, and thinking of ears and lighter fluid...makes it for a tough way to make a living when you're stuck with that image in every single role you have, and ever will play.

The guy makes the rounds on the radio every so often and all he gets asked about, even though he's always on to push his latest project, is about that role in Dogs.

Quentin, can you help this Frankenstein you created out a little?

Genial     

Since I admire his work and REALLY like his sister, I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt that there's another side to this story.

That is unfortunate for him and a lot of money. Me being a single father, I understand what it means to pay support for kids and the laws are strict for the men who don't. In the end, guys are the ones getting screwed in this mess BELIEVE me. But the law is the law and you have to pay, they are your kids that is the main issue. Believe me, I don't wish this on anybody and if you are a single father you understand but on the other side you don't want your kids to go without.. so Mike, you must find a way to pay my brother..Turn yourself in and face the music..
