Australian actor Vince Colosimo escapes bankruptcy

Australian actor Vince Colosimo has escaped bankruptcy after proceedings were dropped. The 46 year old, who shot to fame Down Under in TV show Underbelly and has appeared in films The Great Gatsby and Body of Lies, was alleged to have owed law firm Dandanis & Associates $34,400 (£22,267).
The company launched bankruptcy proceedings against Colosimo in May (13), but in court in Australia on Tuesday (01Oct13) a judge heard the petition had been dismissed with the consent of both parties.
