On April 10, a 43-second video of Quaid's profanity filled tirade hit YouTube. In the video, 61-year-old actor can be seen screaming, "I am acting here, and this dickhead wanders onto my set! I can't even get a line out until Dopey the Dick starts whispering in your ear, and you're not even watching anymore."
Quaid continued, "This is the most unprofessional set I have ever been on," He later referred to his co-workers as "zombies" and "pu**ies."
"There are two dozen articles – and thousands of comments online – suggesting that this is a prank – and I am responsible for it," Kimmel said during his show. "And I have to say – that's disappointing. You play like 50 pranks and all of a sudden people don't trust you anymore."
Kimmel made several quips about the video. specially surrounding Quaid's comment calling one of his co-worker "Dopey the Dick," joking that it would be a great name for a children's book. However, the host never expressly denied or confirmed the rumors that he was involved.
ET reached out to Quaid's rep, who declined to comment.
After the release of the actor's on-set meltdown, it was announced that he would be starring in The Art of More, a new drama for Crackle that explores "the underbelly and surprisingly cutthroat world of premium auction houses."
Could this all be in promotion of his new project?
