Hollywood actor Gene Hackman had a terrifying experience when he rented a home from late comedian REDD FOXX - he found a dead monkey in the closet.

Hackman leased the home from Foxx and was stunned with his macabre discovery - which he vividly shared with Ray Romano as they filmed their new movie Welcome to Mooseport recently.

Romano says, "He told me a story - I don't know how we got onto this topic - about renting a house from Redd Foxx, him and his wife, and they got in the house and settled in and the second day, in one room, he looked in the closet and there was a dead monkey.

"He just kept saying, 'What kind of party did they have here?'"
