Official: Elvis Mitchell Has a Dicey Side

Double the roles, double the awards-baiting!

Back in April, when Elvis Mitchell had a cigar box stuffed with $12,000 in undeclared cash confiscated at the U.S.-Canada border, we calmly awaited his even-keeled response. And now that he's settled with the Feds (and gotten about half of his money back, though not the fifteen illegal Cuban cigars he was also toting at the time), here's his side of the story: He just grabbed the wrong cigar box when he was packing! Wait, so now we're picturing the Mitchell residence overrun with a cornucopia of cigar boxes, every other one containing some vaguely illicit material. Sketchy or bad-boy charming? We'll let the biopic decide. [AP]
