“My Name Is Earl” actor Jason Lee is offering a $25,000 reward for the return of his photograph of the late actor Dennis Hopper.
Jason Lee had a Polaroid photo he had taken of Dennis Hopper, who died last year after a battle with prostate cancer.
Lee allowed the black and white photo to be put on display at the THIS Los Angeles exhibition. But the photograph was stolen this weekend and the actor is now offering $25,000 for the photo to be returned, no questions asked.
A post on the exhibition’s website says: “We have some very unfortunate and sad news and we need your help to solve it. Last night towards the end of our These Friends opening (after the crowds had left and we were cleaning up) someone stole a piece off the wall and bolted out the front door.
“It was Jason Lee’s one of a kind 8×10 Polaroid of the late Dennis Hopper. The artist is putting up a $25,000 reward to anyone who brings it back to us. This is a very sentimental one of a kind piece for obvious reasons. The thief can come forward anonymously and charges won’t be pressed against him. Please get the word out and help us get Jason’s art back.
“This piece was not for sale, it’s extremely sentimental to Jason and he just wanted to share it with the art community by having it in the show.”
