    He's made some quality films: Die Hard, The Hunt for Red October, The Thomas Crown Affair remake


    A federal judge sentenced Hollywood director John McTiernan to four months in prison Monday after refusing to allow him to withdraw his guilty plea to a charge of lying to the FBI about his association with disgraced private eye Anthony Pellicano.
    McTiernan was originally scheduled to be sentenced two weeks ago but that hearing was delayed after his lawyer asked that he be allowed to withdraw the plea and fight the charge. Attorney Milton Grimes said at the time that McTiernan hadn't had adequate legal representation when he entered the plea upon a previous lawyer's advice.

    Is it minimum-security white-collar resort prison or federal pound-me-in-the-ass prison?

    I would expect the former.

    No doubt he'll come out of it with a kick-ass script.
