At his trial for attempted murder among other very serious charges, Shelley Malil, the actor who played a funny electronics store clerk in THE 40 YEAR OLD VIRGIN, testified that he "accidentally" stabbed his girlfriend 23 times. Malil also claims that he thought that she was someone else.
Malil arrived at his girlfriend's home one night, where a fight broke out with a male visitor and the extreme violence ensued leading to the actor's arrest.
The actor also claims not to remember the details of that evening. But regardless, he's facing up to life in prison because of the violent attack that his girlfriend was able to survive.
