They're not running from the law. Randy and Evi Quaid are running from "star whackers" who are out to kill them. The couple, who have fled to Canada in search of asylum after they missed their court date for illegally squatting on someone else's property and vandalizing it, claim that they are protecting themselves from murder.

"To have my integrity and my reputation denigrated so mercilessly, why?" Randy, 60, asked, on Good Morning America. "Why would someone want to do this to me?" The answer, apparently, is the "star whackers." "We are refugees," Evi, 40, added. "Hollywood refugees. I genuinely feel like these people are trying to kill us."

According to the Quaids, they have had their cell phones tapped, their computers hacked, and are being tracked. Who's to blame? "Who would be trying to kill us? An estate planner, who had created a living trust, and a county that could cash Randy's royalty stream forever," Evi said. "For the money."

But they're not the only ones being targeted, at least according to them. "It is very possible that Heath Ledger was murdered, and David Carradine. And Robert Blake was set up," Evi said. "Lindsay Lohan should be afraid. Britney Spears." Even Mel Gibson is part of it. "I think he was drugged," she said. "I think he was slipped the mickey."

Randy is also nervous for brother Dennis, though the two are not as close as they once were. "It's been a little tense the last few years, but I love my brother very much and we have differences, but I'm concerned about him," Randy said. "I feel that he's being victimized the same way I have by the same people." Evi had her own take on the issue. "He's now on a treadmill of making movies that are garbage, and it's unfortunate because he's talented," she said. –AMY LEE
