Randy Quaid detained in Canada, wants asylum from 'star whackers'

randy-quaid-evi-quaid-getty.jpgThe saga of Randy and Evi Quaid has taken an even stranger turn -- into Canada.

The Oscar-nominated actor and his wife were taken into custody in Vancouver earlier this week on immigration violations. At a hearing Friday (Oct. 22), the couple said they wanted refugee status so they can get away from people who are trying to harm them.

What kind of people? We'll let the Quaids' lawyer explain: "We are requesting asylum from Hollywood star whackers," the attorney told the press during a break in Friday's hearing, according to RadarOnline. He didn't elaborate or take questions.
