Wikipedia doesn't always get it right.
At least, that's what actor Ron Livingston wants you to believe. The star, who played is a disgruntled employee in the movie "Office Space," is suing an unnamed Internet mischief-maker for spreading 'malicious' rumors online that the actor is gay.
According to TMZ, the online prankster has repeatedly hacked into Ron Livingston's Wikipedia page and edited the entry to say that the Livingston is homosexual, and involved in a relationship with a man named Lee Dennison.
According to the lawsuit, filed yesterday in L.A. County Superior Court, the Wiki-hacking began back in May -- and every time Ron's reps remove the false info from his Wiki page ... the bandit "changes them back almost immediately."
The same hacker is believed to have gone so far as to create fake Facebook profiles for Livingston and Dennison that list the two men as "in a relationship" with one another.
Livingston, who is married Standoff co-star Rosemarie Dewitt, filed a suit at the Los Angeles County Superior Court on December 5 2009. He is suing for libel, invasion of privacy and for using his name and likeness without permission.
Ron lives in Los Angeles with Casting Director Lee Dennison and is currently starring in Defying Gravity.
