Judge Stephanie Sautner gave Mel a week from his sentencing last Friday to go to a police station, where his mug shot would be taken and he would be fingerprinted -- all part of the process.

Mel went to the El Segundo PD -- near LAX -- Wednesday night at 9:30 PM PT.

Mel's info includes his age, 55, his weight, 190 lbs, and his height, 5'10".

If Mel is 55 then we must be 25.

Nevertheless, we would be happy to share a cell (bed) with Mel!

BTW, Mel...congratulations on the great review of "The Beaver" coming out of Austin.

Also, I'm happy for you and Robyn about being grandparents to a new little baby boy.

A note to Jodie Foster also...you are one hell of a woman, Jodie. Great job on the movie "The Beaver", but mostly, I commend you for standing in defense of your friend Mel and never wavering. Mel is blessed to have a friend like you. You are a true friend through and through.

The premiere screening of Jodie Foster's 'The Beaver' just swept into the SXSW Film Festival, and reactions so far via Twitter seem to be mixed, with most agreeing that Mel Gibson's performance is the highlight of a film that may be a little uneven in tone in its current state. See tweets below ...

@DavidEhrlich: THE BEAVER is a high-concept Disney dad w/ a suicidal streak. didactic, clumsy, & full of good things that deserve better. LIFE AS A PUPPET.

@MattDentler: "The Beaver" really does earn its stripes as a story about mental illness and depression. Not a comedy. #SXSW

@WilliamBGoss: have issues with the tone(s) struck by The Beaver, but not with the direction or performances. #SXSW

@Slashfilm: Predictable, ridiculous, melodramatic. Gibson & Foster have good performances but it's just a mess. Didnt connect with any of the characters

@PeterAMartin: THE BEAVER: Heart on its sleeve, pumping a steady supply of sincere sentimentality. Genuine, touching, if a bit on the nose. #sxsw

@EricVespe: It really is a shame that Mel Gibson is being hidden from the press. His performance in The Beaver is a fantastic and introspective.

@rejects: THE BEAVER has comedy in the situation, sorrow in it's story. Incredible performances. Very touching, well crafted. #sxsw

@Katerbland: THE BEAVER doesn't know what it wants to be and, paired with an unsympathetic main character, steadily grew into a film I hated. #sxsw

@JamesRocchi: THE BEAVER: A big, jokey premise creates small, quiet spaces to examine depression and pain; it's unique, and I'm not ....

@JoBloCom: "The Beaver" is an often good, frequently great but mostly uneven film that worked better as a written story.

It is but things are looking up. His performance in The Beaver is getting good reviews. I suspect How I Spent my Summer Vaction will be be even better. I'm looking forward to that movie in particular.
