Steven Mango, who appears in Theroux film, calls police to Scientology facility over assault - 2016-08-25
Steven Mango makes an appearance in Louis Theroux's My Scientology Movie, which opens in Australia in less than two weeks and in the US in January. But last night, Mango got more than he bargained for when he tried to warn some Hollywood tourists about his bad experiences with the Church of Scientology and ended up with a sore shoulder, a police report, and plans to sue over what he characterizes as an unprovoked assault.
We first ran into Mango when he told his story in a 2014 YouTube video about how, like so many others, he'd been sucked into Scientology as an aspiring actor in Hollywood. In Theroux's film, he makes a brief but memorable appearance explaining that in just a short amount of time, he was convinced to pay huge amounts of money for piles of church publications and courses. (In the photo above, he's pictured with Theroux and Andrew Perez, who plays Scientology leader David Miscavige in the movie.)
