Evan Peters, best known for his diverse roles in American Horror Story, was spotted in a checked winter shirt as he promoted his new movie American Animals (2018). Here are some fun facts you might not know about the REAL life drama!
This true-crime thriller was based on the “Transy Book Heist” which saw four Kentucky college students try to steal valuable books and manuscripts from the Special Collections Library at Transylvania University, in Lexington, Kentucky in 2004.
According to Wikipedia: “Childhood friends Spencer and Warren rebel against their suburban upbringing. The two, alongside two other fellow students, plot to steal priceless Audubon prints and rare books from Transylvania University’s special collections library.” The tagline is “Nobody Wants To Be Ordinary”.
With no witnesses and no fingerprints, it was reported the thieves could have taken $5 million in stolen property! It was later known as one of the F.B.I.’s all-time most significant art-theft cases.
