Rape rap for ‘Act 2’ thesp

A co-star of “Sister Act 2” was arrested Tuesday after allegedly raping a 16 -year-old extra on the movie’s downtown set, police said.

Ron Johnson, 19, who appeared in last year’s independent film “Zebrahead,” was booked for investigation of forcible rape, Officer Don Cox said.

The purported victim claimed she was raped Monday evening in Johnson’s dressing room trailer during filming of the Whoopi Goldberg comedy, Cox said.

She called a rape hotline and was advised to go to a hospital and call police , Cox said. The suspect was arrested Tuesday morning on the set near Pershing Square. Cox said he did not know if Johnson was released on bail.

“We are aware of the situation, and are cooperating fully with the authorities in their investigation,” the Walt Disney Co., the film’s distributor , said in a statement.

Larry Mark, the film’s producer, did not immediately return a telephone call seeking comment. The movie is scheduled to finish filming on Sunday.

Johnson, a native of South Central Los Angeles, won a rap contest on a local radio station before appearing in “Zebrahead,” in which he played a character called Nut.
