Michael Madsen Rides Dirty, Keeps Kids Clean

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Big-screen badass Michael Madsen may be ridin’ dirty in an upcoming film, but at home, he’s keeping everyone safe.

Madsen – best known for portraying crazed criminal Mr. Blonde in director Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs – is again pairing with Tarantino for Hell Ride, where he’ll play an outlaw biker named The Gent alongside Dennis Hopper and Vinnie Jones.

But while Madsen – an avid Harley Davidson enthusiast – burns rubber in the violent flick, at home, he’s all about keeping his six sons safe.

Madsen says, “I’ll let my older boys see Hell Ride, but the younger ones will have to skip it. Kids are a lot more mature these days, and I don’t know if that’s a good thing.”

Unlike his characters, however, Madsen’s able to stay sane in the parenting process.

He says, “I do my best. You just have to keep an eye on them without turning into a psychopath.”

Hell Ride hits theaters tomorrow (Aug. 8).
