Paul Hogan: Trapped in Australia

Crocodile Dundee is trapped in his own country. Paul Hogan, the actor who played the beloved ‘80s character in the Crocodile Dundee movie trilogy, has been barred from leaving his native Australia until he pays a disputed tax bill, his lawyer said yesterday. The 70-year-old Hogan lives in LA and headed to Sydney to attend his mother's funeral services last week.
Hogan was served with an Australian Taxation Office order after landing last Friday that prevents him from leaving Australia until he settles a multimillion dollar tax bill. Ouch.
Looks like Hogan needs to pay up or he's trapped in Oz. That bill sounds quite hefty. It is a lesson to ALWAYS pay your taxes, kids.
