Edward-furlong-rachael kneeland Did Mel Gibson ignite a summer trend? Apparently young John Connor might have fallen for the cellphone voicemail recording trick as well.

TMZ is reporting that Edward Furlong, who played the boy who would save the world in "Terminator 2: Judgment Day," was hit with a temporary restraining order on Friday because he "left some vicious and threatening voicemails [and text messages] for his estranged wife," Rachael Kneeland.

The verbiage in these recordings isn't suitable for printing in this family-friendly establishment's blogs, but rest assured there's enough profanity to warrant a few bars of soap for a good mouth washing.

Will all of this resurrect itself before Furlong appears in Seth Rogen's "The Green Hornet" next year? Here's a gallery of other celebrities whose careers have battled controversy.
