Well, this is kind of a dumb story. The article doesn't say that the man claimed he was the actor, just that his name was Bruce Lee. There might be any number of people in the world named Bruce Lee.

Wow, never thought of blaming my drunken binges and lewd behavior on a dead actor....hmmm, who to choose who to choose. I wonder if people could see video of themselves acting like A$$e$, if it would matter???

An obnoxious drunk guy in Wisconsin with delusions of grandeur? Sounds like a day in the life your run-of-the-mill Packer fan.

That is true.

For instance, over the last several decades there have been a number of fairly well known people in sports and politics over the years named John Kennedy or Jack Kennedy and certainly many more who never became well known or celebrities, there have been many ordinary and run of the mill people named Bill Clinton, I used to have a co worker named Barbara Bush, back in the early 1970's I had a co worker named Booker T. Washington, and during the 1960 presidential election the mother of one of my classmates was pregnant and according to my classmate was planning on naming her baby, if a boy, John F. Kennedy.

And a side comment on why it is important to carefully check things out and to not just assume: A few decades ago I used to know a guy whose last name was Zumwalt.(The guy I knew was no relation to the extremely famous US Navy admiral Eelmo Zumwalt.) However when he used to go on vacation in cities that had large Navy bases and/or where the military was prominent, he would just show them his business card, and which had the name Zumwalt on it (altho the Zumwalt I knew had a different first name than Elmo, however the last name of Zumwalt on the business card was still more than sufficient to extremely impress people in Navy towns), and the people in hotels, etc, would then assume he a relative of the famous admiral and then fall all over themselves to see how much they could offer him.

I just went to www.HowManyOfMe.com and looked up the name Bruce Lee. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are currently 920 people in the U.S. with the name Bruce Lee. So the guy may very have been telling the truth.
