No surprise. He's one of the zombie members of the Divine Light Mission cult. Now that they're rushing towards old age the realization they never were going to visit "god" to give him their money, they're cracking up. http://www.prem-rawat-maharaji.info/

He's a member of the Prem Rawat cult. He needs to stay out of trouble because he won't be able to continue the vast amount of his money to his "god".

If he tried to mess with a Steel Town girl on a Saturday night she would kick this guys butt. I have never liked this guy anyway, not a very good actor....where has he been since Flashdance?

I haven't seen him since the spring of 1983 when Jennifer Beals jumps into his arms after she crushes it at her dance audition. Did they ever marry? Did Beals drop off the face of the earth with him? I think the last time this guy was relevent the top TV shows were Lee Majors in the Fall guy and The Hoff in Knight Rider, where has Nouri been since 1984?

I would like to see Flashdance get a remake in 2013 with Vanessa Hudgens in the Jennifer Beals role. Vanessa has crisp dance moves and is just as cute at Beals was. In the Michael Nouri role I would like to see Ryan Gosling, I believe the chemistry between Gosling and Hudgens would be volcanic. And at the last scene I would change it where Ryan and Vanessa are in a mall and she gets a call on her cell phone that she was accepted into the dance academy and her and Gosling break into a dance just like in Dirty Dancing and even some people in the food court join in. This could be the feel good film of 2013 if it is done right. It will be hard to get an A lister like Gosling on board but Vanessa Hudgens does nothing but take yoga every day so she would be happy to work again. Make it happen Hollywood!

Diamond Goddess!    

This guy ALWAYS has lady-weirdness goin' on!
"Memba when he had the wife with MS and was openly banging Roma Downey?
She had so much work done on her face she looks like a monster, then up and married "Survivor" producer Mark Burnett.
i think Nouri's had the cops called on him before.
He's handsome, though.

Oh no! My mother was completely in love with his Flashdance character. It was one of the first movies she bought back in the old tape cassette movie days. We watched that movie so many times I swear I can repeat the complete dialogue start to finish. Damn.

I heard this is what happened between he and Roma Downey. Anyone know? He's been a hothead for years, masking it with his Premmie cult of peace and love. Makes since now when I look him up and see him with so many different women on red carpets. Probably has anger issues and the women find out sooner or later. Glad this one got out sooner.

As Ziva David's dad on NCSI, in real life, I could see where he might have quite a temper. Possibly his girlfriend spent too much money at Neiman Marcus and he had a fit. Kind of sorry to read this, Nouri is a terrific actor.
