Actor Edward Burns is hoping the sex scandal surrounding New York State Governor Eliot Spitzer will give his new movie an unexpected boost. The 40-year-old star admits he is grateful for Spitzer's alleged involvement in a prostitution ring, because the news coverage is inadvertently promoting his new film. He says, "It's about the Mayor of New York who is involved in a sex scandal. The timing couldn't be better." Spitzer hit the headlines on Monday (10Mar08) after the New York Times reported his alleged involvement in an illegal prostitution operation.
