Uma Thurman's convicted stalker seeks plea deal
Uma Thurman's convicted stalker is seeking a plea deal on charges that he tried to contact the actress again, after a judge refused to toss out his case on Wednesday, The Washington Post reports.
In 2008, Jack Jordan, 39, was convicted of stalking and harassing the "Pulp Fiction" actress after showing up at her Manhattan home and movie sets, calling her family and employees and sending her letters with messages which said things like "my hands should be on your body at all times."
Jordan was sentenced to three years of probation and was ordered to avoid contacting Thurman, 40, for five years. Prosecuters say that Jordan tried to contact the Oscar-nominated actress on the phone in October.
The stalker has said that his fixation with the actress began with her 1988 Terry Gilliam film, "The Adventures of the Baron Munchausen." When he was arrested in November at his family's Maryland home, sitting in front of a computer screen that had "Uma Thurman j'adore" written in the Google search.
Jordan is currently in jail on a $500,000 bond and reportedly said nothing during his Wednesday trial. He could face up to four years in prison if convicted.
Thurman's representation has said that she will not comment on the case.
Thurman earned an Academy Award nomination for her supporting role in "Pulp Fiction" and starred in Quentin Tarantino's hugely popular "Kill Bill" trilogy.
It was reported by Variety on Wednesday that the actress will star alongside Gerard Butler and Jessical Biel in the upcoming comedy, "Playing the Field." In the movie, Butler stars as a former soccer pro who agrees to coach his son's team but finds himself dodging the advances of flirty soccer moms. Biel will play Butler's ex-wife while Thurman will reportedly take on the role of a soccer mom.
