Officer appears in celebrity 'bling ring' movie
Los Angeles officer who busted celebrity 'bling ring' plays himself in movie about the case
By The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES (AP) ' The Los Angeles police officer who solved the so-called "Bling Ring" celebrity break-ins case is playing himself in a movie about the investigation.

Filmmaker Sofia Coppola hired veteran LAPD Officer Brett Goodkin as a technical adviser on "The Bling Ring," which is based on a band of young people charged with stealing $3 million worth of goods from the homes of Orlando Bloom, Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and others.

The Los Angeles Times (http://lat.ms/J2Z4Uv ) says Goodkin also plays himself in the movie. A recently filmed scene shows him slapping handcuffs on a suspect played by Emma Watson.



But trials are still pending for three defendants in the case and Goodkin's testimony is likely to be critical.

He never notified prosecutors about his work on the movie.
