Wes Bentley denied entry to Canada

Posted By on Fri, Sep 14, 2012 at 11:28 AM

Actor Wes Bentley was recently denied entry to Canada to promote his new film.

Radar Online reports that Jonesboro native Wes Bentley has been denied entry to Canada based on a four-year-old drug conviction. The actor was scheduled for press events promoting his latest film, "The Time Being," at the Toronto International Film Festival. The film also stars Frank Langella.

Radar quoted an anonymous source: "Wes really wanted to go to the Toronto International Film Festival premiere of his movie and had his team contact the head of TIFF to try and pull some strings with the government.”

Bentley was arrested in 2008 for heroin possession, for which he pleaded guilty. Apparently our neighbors to the north are super uptight about past drug convictions.

Thanks to Stephen Koch for the tip.
