14 Things You Never Knew About David Fincher's 'The Game'

The best description of the Michael Douglas drama "The Game" came from director David Fincher upon the movie's release 20 years ago this week (on September 12, 1997). Fincher said it was a film about a "fashionable, good-looking Scrooge, lured into a 'Mission: Impossible' situation with a steroid shot in the thigh from 'The Sting.'"

That weird mishmash of redemption fable, action thriller, and long-con caper proved to be a modest hit, one that helped Fincher prove that his success with 1995's "Seven" hadn't been a fluke. It also became a cable staple for years. Nonetheless, as often as you've watched "The Game," the tricky, twisty tale still has some secrets, involving the movie's behind-the-scenes drama.
1. "The Game" makes a lot more sense if you think of it as a movie about movies. After all, Douglas' character, Nicholas Van Orton, essentially finds himself the lead in a thriller, surrounded by actors and sets, only he doesn't know how the script is supposed to play out. Given all of the red herrings shown in "The Game," neither does the viewer. As Fincher told The Independent upon the film's release, "Movies usually make a pact with the audience that says: We're going to play it straight; what we show you is going to add up. But we don't do that. In that respect, it's about movies and how movies dole out information."

2. Screenwriters John Brancato and Michael Ferris wrote the screenplay in 1991. They soon had rookie director Jonathan Mostow attached, with a cast led by Kyle MacLachlan and Bridget Fonda. That incarnation fell through, and Mostow, who remained aboard as a producer, ended up making his directing debut with the hit thriller "Breakdown."
3. Fincher (above, right) was set to direct "The Game" until Brad Pitt had a hole in his schedule, allowing Fincher to make "Seven" first. Later, he'd hire "Seven" screenwriter Andrew Kevin Walker to revise Brancato and Ferris' script.

4. An early script change aged Nicholas from a man in his twenties or thirties to a middle-aged man contemplating his own mortality. That allowed the filmmakers to cast Douglas, at the time a top box office draw, who could help the production drum up a bigger budget.
5. One early casting snafu had Jodie Foster in line to co-star with Douglas as his daughter. In fact, early in both stars' careers, Douglas had played Foster's dad in 1972's "Napoleon and Samantha," made when Douglas was 27 and Foster was 9. In 1996, however, Douglas was 51 and Foster was 33, and he reportedly didn't think the 18-year age gap made them convincing as father and daughter. He wanted Foster to play his sister instead.

6. That forced Foster off the project altogether, leading her to sue distributor Polygram for $14.5 million, even though her own Egg Productions was a Polygram business partner. Foster alleged that Polygram had breached its agreement with her and that she'd lost money by making herself unavailable for other films; Polygram, in turn, argued that there was no written contract. The suit was ultimately settled out of court. Five years later, Fincher and Foster would bury the hatchet and make "Panic Room."
7. Still needing a sibling for Douglas, the producers reached out to Jeff Bridges, who turned them down. Finally, they went with Sean Penn.

8.Deborah Kara Unger won the role of Christine, the film's mysterious female lead, by sending the filmmakers a reel that consisted of her sex-scene footage in David Cronenberg's creepy "Crash." Douglas and Fincher weren't sure if the audition tape was a joke, but fortunately, they met with her in person and found her charming and capable.
9. While they were waiting to get "The Game" into production, Brancato and Ferris wrote a similar script that became the 1995 Sandra Bullock thriller "The Net." When "The Game" needed a real-life TV news correspondent for a cameo, the filmmakers sought CNN's Bernard Shaw, but the channel had a (seldom honored) policy at the time barring its reporters from appearing in fiction films. So the production went instead to legendary CBS and NPR newsman Daniel Schorr, who'd done a similar cameo in "The Net."

10. As it happened, the day Schorr was to film his sequence in "The Game," the New York Times published an article critical of news reporters acting in movies, accompanied by a photo of Schorr in "The Net." Plagued with self-doubt, the newsman nearly backed out of the movie, but he managed to stay and complete the now-memorable scene of him back-talking Nicholas through the tycoon's TV.
11. Douglas said his moody, tormented performance was inspired in part by the divorce proceedings he was going through during the shoot. "It was a time for me to use a lot of myself in the picture," he recalled.

12. The paramedic who shines a light into Nicholas' eyes after his climactic fall was a cameo role for Spike Jonze, a Fincher pal who was taking a similar career path, from music video director to feature filmmaker. Within two years, Jonze would make his feature debut with "Being John Malkovich."
13. "The Game" wasn't the massive hit that "Seven" was. Still, the $50 million production earned a healthy $48 million in North America and a total of $109 million worldwide.

14. In 2012, Fincher recalled that his partner and frequent producer, Ceán Chaffin, had told him not to make "The Game."

"In hindsight, my wife was right," he told IndieWire. "We didn't figure out the third act, and it was my fault, because I thought if you could just keep your foot on the throttle it would be liberating and funny. I know what I like, and one thing I definitely like is not knowing where a movie is going."

The Fifth Element 1997 Cast 🎬 Then \u0026 Now 💎 (1997 vs 2020)

David Fincher Originally Wanted To Cast Kevin Spacey And Jodie Foster In 'Mank' In The '90s

David Fincher is notorious for having a very particular way of doing things. It's gotten the filmmaker in the headlines a couple times: Oh, Gary Oldmanhad to do 100 takes; oh, production shut down because of Ben Affleck's hat.

But every now and then, one of those tics will prevent Fincher's project from ever getting off the ground. See: the upcoming Mank, which had been a longtime passion project for Fincher, with a development history reaching back to the '90s. Fincher's father Jack wrote the script in the 1990s, and the filmmaker originally intended to film it after he completed The Game in 1997, but the project sadly fell apart. But what would the '90s Mank have looked like? For one, it would likely have starred Kevin Spacey and Jodie Foster rather than Oldman and Amanda Seyfried, Fincher revealed.

Mank arrives on Netflix this December after a long and arduous journey. But it likely would have taken this long anyway, as Fincher's ambitious vision for the film — in black and white, and shot in a style that would emulate films from the Golden Age of Hollywood — would only have been greenlit by a risk-taking streamer like Netflix. In an interview with Variety, Fincher reveals how he almost got Mank made back in the '90s — then set up at Polygram — and had even started to lock in a cast, when clashes with the studio and other production snags doomed the project:

"Polygram got cold feet because of all kinds of truly stupid boilerplate stuff involving output deals in Central America. We would have had to have shot the film in color and then corrected it and do a black-and-white version. It completely fell apart."

Fincher was already well into casting when the production fell apart, eying Spacey as Citizen Kane screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz and Jodie Foster as Marion Davies, the longtime mistress to William Randolph Hearst. The roles would eventually go to Oldman and Seyfried, respectively, in the upcoming Mank.

It's another interesting case of "what could've been" — Spacey and Foster were two of the hottest stars at the time, reigning at both awards shows and the box office — so the '90s Mank might have been a big success. But Fincher doesn't seem to have any regrets over his first failed attempt to make Mank, praising Netflix for allowing him the creative and financial freedom that the theatrical model had rarely afforded him.

"I've never been happier working at a place than I am at Netflix," Fincher said. "They're building a repository. It's a nice thing that movies have a place to exist where you don't necessarily have to shove them into spandex summer or affliction winter. It's a platform that takes all kinds. You can be a dark, sinister German movie or a bizarre Israeli spy show. They want them all."

"I know that I'm no picnic," Fincher added. "They want people who are self-starters; they want people who want to tear it up and try different things and show up for work and tax the system."

Mank arrives on Netflix on December 4, 2020.

THEATER; At 50, a Mellower David Mamet May Be Ready to Tell His Story

THE REHEARSAL TOOK place on a recent Sunday in an obscure, cellar-like space in this city's South End. The room was spare. Two actors, Peter Riegert and Vincent Guastaferro, sat on folding chairs against the backdrop of a brick wall, observed by only a few others. One was the playwright, David Mamet, who sat directly in front of them, a familiar, stocky figure with a bluntly trimmed beard, round glasses and a baseball cap.

That's more information than Mr. Mamet would supply about the setting for one of his plays. But of course the thing about Mr. Mamet is there's a lot that isn't made explicit. For all the rage and anguish that gets communicated in his work, much of it is hidden, repressed, roiling but invisible.

Indeed, in the rehearsal, which was for ''The Old Neighborhood,'' Mr. Mamet's play that opens at the Booth Theater on Wednesday, it wasn't the lines giving the actors trouble so much as what was between them: the pauses and the language-less utterances that Mr. Mamet meticulously includes, to give rhythm and emphasis to the actual words.

''Tolstoy said a great thing,'' Mr. Mamet told the actors as they struggled to communicate the friendship between their characters in a scene in which the lines seemed disjointed and obscure. ''You can tell that a marriage is on the rocks when they speak to each other rationally.''

Clever, referential, oblique and biting, it was a remark typical of Mr. Mamet, who turns 50 at the end of the month. Perhaps alone among American writers in his embrace of both serious and popular culture, he is in a period of remarkable productivity, even by his own prolific standards.

He has just published two books, ''True and False,'' a prickly and exhortatory treatise for young actors about the trials of their chosen profession; and a novel, ''The Old Religion,'' which purports to trace the thoughts of Leo Frank -- the Jewish factory manager in Georgia, who in 1915 was wrongly convicted of and executed for the rape and murder of one of his employees -- as he waited out his torment in prison.

And then there are the movies, which seem to pour out of him. He wrote the screenplay for the Anthony Hopkins-Alec Baldwin film, ''The Edge,'' now in theaters; he has finished ''The Spanish Prisoner,'' an independent film about an elaborate con game that stars Steve Martin and Campbell Scott and that he wrote and directed; ''Wag the Dog,'' a political satire he wrote for the director Barry Levinson, is to be released next month, and he has completed several new screenplays, including a remake of ''The Cincinnati Kid'' for Al Pacino.

''I HAD TO GIVE HIM AN award recently,'' said Ricky Jay, the writer and prestidigitator who is a close friend of the playwright and who appears in ''The Spanish Prisoner.'' ''And as I was making my introduction speech, I looked down along the podium and I saw Dave was making notes. I thought he had finished another couple of screenplays while I was talking.''

But beyond the sheer volume, the work, particularly his stage dramas, has begun to take on a reflective, personal cast. It is as if Mr. Mamet -- whose angry male characters in plays like ''Glengarry Glen Ross,'' ''American Buffalo'' and ''Sexual Perversity in Chicago'' made his reputation as an iconoclastic bard of rage -- has softened enough to let the world in on some of his secrets.

It was in ''The Rake,'' a short, autobiographical essay published in 1992, that Mr. Mamet first revealed in print what was apparently a childhood spent in torment, the chief villain being a stepfather. In the essay, he recounts an incident in which the stepfather threw his younger sister, Lynn, across the room, cracking a vertebra in her back. His last play, ''The Cryptogram,'' depicts the life of a young boy living in a fractured home, where the parents lie to each other and manipulate him, and concludes with the image of the silent child ascending a staircase to an attic, holding a knife and apparently bent on self-destruction.

Now there is ''The Old Neighborhood,'' which consists of three previously written one-acts that have been revised and knitted together into one, and which, even as it is among Mr. Mamet's most oblique and stylistically spare plays, resonates as his most openly autobiographical. The play had its world premiere last April in a separate production at the American Repertory Theater in Cambridge, Mass., directed then, as now, by Scott Zigler.

In it, Bobby Gould, whose name recurs in Mr. Mamet's work and who in this case he acknowledges to be his alter ego, makes a midlife visit to his hometown. There, he confronts, in separate painful conversations, a childhood friend (Mr. Guastaferro), his sister (played by Patti LuPone) and a past lover, played by Mr. Mamet's wife, Rebecca Pidgeon. The events that inform their shared pain are never made specific; it is only evident that it still stirs them.

''In many ways it's an old-fashioned play, of the kind you would see in the 50's,'' Mr. Mamet said, ''a kitchen play, a reflective, family-oriented play.'' And that may be so, though in the traditional family play, the events that cause the conflict are dramatized on stage. In ''The Old Neighborhood,'' the conflicts are old: the strife-causing events are being kept alive by the characters' memories. Can the same be said of the playwright? Is it fair for a theatergoer to see David Mamet in Bobby Gould?

''If you want,'' Mr. Mamet said. ''But it seems to me that that happens only if the play isn't any good.''

In a midday interview at his favorite luncheonette, near his home in West Newton (''A big plate of crunchy bacon,'' he told the waiter, ''yum, yum, yum, yum, yum''), Mr. Mamet glanced off a number of subjects, among them his burgeoning predilection for minimalism (''Doing more with less, that's what art is about, juggling with one ball'') and the evils of the movie business (and how much fun it is, which would explain why he tolerates the grinding Hollywood system he lambastes in his new acting book).

''Why deal with Hollywood?'' he said. ''It's screaming good fun. It pays very, very well. And in certain ways, it's the big table, and as a gambler I always wanted to play at the big table. I'm not an ascetic. I'm greedy and ambitious like everybody else.''

And he spoke, with enthusiasm, about a production of ''Hamlet'' he has been directing in fitful rehearsals over the last two years. His friend William H. Macy is in the title role, and the cast has included such Hollywood luminaries as Michael J. Fox (Laertes) and Whoopi Goldberg (the Player King).

''I'm trying to talk Steve Martin into playing Claudius,'' he said. He plans to stage it in Manhattan, at the tiny Atlantic Theater, the home of the company he and Mr. Macy helped found in the 1980's. With such a cast, why not Broadway?

''I want to see people clawing each other to death outside the theater,'' he said.

AND HE ALSO SHOWED OFF his predilection, within the context of ordinary discourse, to cite the wisdom of others. Within a couple of hours, he managed to quote, or paraphrase, Mike Nichols, Stanislavski, Paul Newman, Groucho Marx, Ethel Merman and the Greek philosopher Epictetus (''Keep your principles few and simple so you may refer to them at a moment's notice'').

On the subjects of his productivity (''What else is there to do?'') and his advancing age, he is inclined to glibness. ''Probably,'' he said, asked if turning 50 meant anything to him, though he was a bit more revealing in summing up the theme of ''The Edge,'' in which Anthony Hopkins bests Alec Baldwin in a survival test that is also a symbolic battle over a woman.

''Old age and treachery will always beat youth and exuberance,'' he said.

What he was most reluctant to discuss was the provenance of the new play. He admitted that the old neighborhood of the title is in Chicago, where he grew up, though it never says so in the play, and that Bobby is his stand-in. But he wouldn't acknowledge much else. ''You know, young actors say all the time, 'Should I use my own life experience?' '' he said. ''And my response is, 'What choice do you have?' ''

Asked what Bobby does for a living, he said he didn't know, it didn't matter. ''In Hollywood they always want to know about a character's back-story, which is the stupidest damn idea. It's like asking what kind of underwear the guy in the painting is wearing.'' Pressed about the specific events the play comes from, he got a little testy, though he did so with a smile.

''Us writers, we're even bigger whores than journalists,'' he said. ''Because journalists, once in a while think, 'Well, Jesus Christ, maybe it might be a good idea to consider using a fact.' We don't even do that.''

Nonetheless, perhaps the most telling of the three one-acts is ''Jolly,'' in which Bobby and his sister commiserate about their torturous upbringing.

''I read it,'' said Lynn Mamet, a writer herself now living in southern California. ''It was as if David had replayed six or eight of our phone conversations.''

This was not meant critically, or with a sense of betrayal, but by way of illustrating the complexity of the family dynamic. In the real-life tale, Lenore Mamet left her husband, a labor lawyer, for one of his colleagues, and the two children lived with their mother and stepfather until young David had had enough and moved in with his father. In no household, however, did there seem to be respite from the burden of trying to appease the apparently unappeasable adults.

''Suffice it to say we are not the victims of a happy childhood,'' Ms. Mamet said. ''There was a lot of violence, but the greatest violence was emotional. It was emotional terrorism. In my estimation, we are survivors of a travel route that included a 1950's version of Dachau and Bergen-Belsen, and that we both still bear the numbers on our arms. In that sense, when he writes, he wears short sleeves.''

The rage in all his plays, she said, originates there. ''They're all familial,'' she said.

Tightly connected as the two are -- ''I would take a bullet for him'' Ms. Mamet said -- their experience was not the same. Whereas her brother grew up admiring their real father, Bernard, who died five years ago, she always hated him. She, on the other hand, has forgiven her step father; her brother has not. Ms. Mamet said she would provide her stepfather's phone number only if her brother agreed to it; he wouldn't.

MS. MAMET'S OWN NEW play is called ''The Lost Years,'' in which a man is caught among the women in his life: his wife, his sister and his remembered mother.

''It's basically about the breakup of David's marriage to Lindsay,'' she said, referring to Lindsay Crouse, the actress who was Mr. Mamet's first wife, with whom he had two daughters, Willa and Zosia. Now teen-agers, they live with their mother in California. Judging from the play, it would be an understatement to say the marriage did not bring Mr. Mamet much solace.

''In dealing with our demons, we have identified different people as the devil,'' Ms. Mamet said. ''My response to that is it doesn't matter who we single out; there was a devil, and as a result we will never run out of stories. The very thing that could have destroyed us and driven us to silence ultimately led us to open our veins on white bond and make a living.''

Ms. Mamet said her brother -- ''the angriest man who was ever born'' -- has clearly softened with age, and indeed, the signs are there. Several years ago, he embraced Judaism with a fervor, which, he acknowledged, had something to do with growing older.

His second marriage, to Ms. Pidgeon (who converted to Judaism) has, by all accounts, had a calming effect on him; so has the birth of their daughter, Clara, who is now 3. And his other family, a widening professional circle of actors, writers and directors who are exceedingly loyal to him, is clearly a source of enormous solace. Almost everyone he works with now has worked with him before.

''Life has gotten a bit easier for him lately, I think,'' Ms. Pidgeon said, though asked why, she retreated into a characteristic Mametian cocoon. ''I can't go into the reason,'' she said. In ''The Old Neighborhood,'' she is placed in the odd position of portraying the woman who loved Bobby Gould and lost him.

''Do I feel like I'm on stage with my husband?'' she said. ''I do, in a way. But it's a different part of Dave.'' What's on stage isn't real; it isn't what actually happened. The work, she said, represents ''the dream life of the writer.''

''When the little boy goes up the stairs with the knife, presumably to end his life, in 'The Cryptogram,' '' she said, ''that's not exactly what Dave did, is it?''

No, obviously not. And apparently he has now lived long enough to tell the tale. At one point in the Sunday rehearsal, progress stalled as Mr. Guastaferro, as Joey, struggled with the speech in which he admits to his old pal Bobby that he has recurring fantasies about killing his family. Mr. Guastaferro had been rushing things, plunging into his awful confession as though he couldn't keep it inside him. He didn't hold onto it long enough and so the speech had a false, comic ring to it. He didn't seem terribly tortured.

'' 'Sometimes, I think,' and stop, just stop until you're ready to say it,'' Mr. Mamet instructed him. ''It'll hold forever.''

It is the television series that launched hundreds of slo-mo beach runs, created international sex symbols, changed central locations from Los Angeles to Hawaii and was initially cancelled after its debut season due to poor ratings, only to bounce back as a hit in global syndication thanks to star David Hasselhoff’s belief in the project and his willingness to step in as an executive producer.

Debuting in 1989, Baywatch was on duty over 11 seasons as well as delivering the short-lived spin-off series Baywatch Nights. The series also spawned three direct-to-video films Baywatch the Movie: Forbidden Paradise, Baywatch: White Thunder at Glacier Bay and Baywatch: Hawaiian Wedding, and was the inspiration for the 2017 comedy film Baywatch starring Dwayne Johnson, Zac Efron and Priyanka Chopra.

Here’s a look at what happened to some of the key cast members:

David Hasselhoff (Mitch Buchannon)

The series lead, actor-singer-producer David Hasselhoff played a veteran lifeguard Mitch Buchannon who kept a watchful eye over his younger colleagues on the L.A.-County set series over more than 200 episodes. Baywatch made Hasselhoff an international star, though after the show ended he was often typecast. "The Hoff," as he became known, appeared on Broadway in 2000 in Jekyll and Hyde and went on to appear in filmed productions including The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie (2004), Sons of Anarchy (2011), Piranha 3DD (2012), Newsreaders (2014-2015), Sharknado 3 (2015) and Sharknado 4 (2016). Hasselhoff often appeared as himself onscreen, or a thinly-veiled version thereof, including Killing Hasselhoff (2017) and as The Mentor in the Baywatch comedy send-up of the same year.

He was a judge on America’s Got Talent in 2006, competed on Dancing with the Stars in 2010 and launched a social networking site called HoffSpace in 2008. Hasselhoff has released more than a dozen albums and is a major singing sensation in Europe, particularly in Austria, where he has had nine top 30 songs, and in Germany where he has released 10 albums.

A 2007 video taken by his daughter Taylor Ann showed him extremely drunk in his home. Hasselhoff said the video was deliberately released and in 2009 his attorney told ABC News his client was a “recovering alcoholic.”

Hasselhoff first married actress Catherine Hickland (1984–1989), and then actress Pamela Bach (1989–2006) with whom he has two daughters, Taylor Ann and Hayley. He starred with both on the reality series The Hasselhoffs on A&E. Hasselhoff married Hayley Roberts at a ceremony in Italy in 2018.

Pamela Anderson (C.J. Walker)

Her face and body were already known due to advertisements for Labatt Beer and appearing in the pages of Playboy magazine, but Canada-born Pamela Anderson became an international sex symbol due to her recurring role of C.J. Walker in Baywatch that lasted from 1992 to 1997.

While never a big screen star, Anderson had success on television with the series V.I.P. (1998–2002), but less so with Stripperella (2003–2004) and Stacked (2005–2006). She made a cameo appearance as herself in Borat: Cultural Learnings of America for Make Better Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan (2006) and appeared in revamp of The Hills (2019). Anderson also competed on Dancing with the Stars (2010 and 2012), as well as international variations of the show in Argentina (2011) and France (2018). She appeared on British reality show Dancing on Ice (2013) as well as the Big Brother franchise in India (2010) and the U.K. (2012). She also brought back the character of C.J. in a cameo appearance in the 2017 Baywatch movie remake.

An outspoken animal rights and environmental conservation activist, Anderson has worked with PETA for more than two decades, became a spokesperson for MAC Cosmetics’ MAC AIDS Fund in 2005, has been a celebrity spokesperson for the American Liver Foundation and campaigned against seal hunting in Canada. In 2016 in a statement to People magazine, Anderson referred to WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange as a “hero” and has visited him in prison in the United Kingdom as recently as May 2019. She has also offered public support to the yellow vest movement in France.

Anderson married Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee in 1995 and the couple, who have two sons together, Brandon and Dylan, divorced in 1998 after Lee was arrested and convicted for spousal abuse. Anderson was then engaged to model Marcus Schenkenberg before an on-again-off-again union with singer Kid Rock resulted in marriage in 2006 and divorce the same year. She married film producer Rick Salomon in 2007 and requested the marriage be annulled the same year. The couple remarried and divorced in 2014. She married movie producer Jon Peters in 2020, but their union only lasted 12 days.

Michael Newman

Michael Newman was the only cast member who had the same name off and on screen. Originally hired as a technical consultant for the show, Newman had worked as a lifeguard in real life and was originally employed to ensure the onscreen rescues would look authentic, before eventually transitioning to a regular cast member. Newman, a married father of two, never acted following the end of Baywatch. Instead, he turned his attention to selling real estate in California’s Pacific Palisades. In 2011 he revealed he had been battling Parkinson’s disease for the previous five years.

Alexandra Paul (Lt. Stephanie Holden)

From 1992 to 1997 Alexandra Paul played the love interest to the show’s protagonist Mitch Buchannon (Hasselhoff) until her character, Lt. Stephanie Holden, was killed off in a boating accident at sea. Since hanging up the red swimsuit Paul has appeared in more than 100 productions including Melrose Place (1999), Mad Men (2008), Firequake (2014) and Sharknado 4 (2016). Paul married triathlon coach Ian Murray in 2000. An activist for causes including the environment, voting rights and peace issues, Paul has been arrested more than a dozen times while protesting. Vegan Paul has been driving electric cars since 1990, is also a health coach and wrote and produced documentaries including Jam Packed: The Challenge of Human Overpopulation (1997) and The Cost of Cool: Finding Happiness in a Materialistic World (2001).

Jeremy Jackson (Hobie Buchannon)

As Hobie Buchannon, the son to Hasselhoff’s character, Jeremy Jackson became a recognized face thanks to his almost decade-long appearances on Baywatch. Further success has proved elusive to the once child star, who launched a music career with help from co-star Hasselhoff in the ‘90s and hosted fashion shows for brand Ed Hardy before addiction to crystal meth and then steroids would result in multiple rehab stints and run-ins with police.

Like co-star Anderson, Jackson attempted to restart his entertainment career with stints on reality television shows, including Confessions of a Teen Idol (2009), Celebrity Rehab With Dr. Drew (2011) and Britain’s Celebrity Big Brother (2015).

In 2017 Jackson was sentenced to 270 days in jail for a stabbing that occurred in 2015. According to his Instagram account in 2019, Jackson bills himself as a Brazilian Ju-Jitsu champion, recovery coach, actor/entertainer, personal trainer, chef and meditation healer.
