Reportedly, government officials are looking to devise a plan for a Fire Camp to house inmates in Joshua Malina’s neighborhood.

As a biography, Joshua Charles Malina was born in New Rochelle, New York on January 17, 1966 so his age is 44. He is an actor and is most-known for his role on NBC’s “The West Wing” as Will Bailey. Malina attended and graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in theater from Horace Mann School and Yale University. He made his debut in acting in the broadway production “A Few Good Men”. Malina met his wife, costume designer, Melissa Merwin in 1992. They married in 1996 and together, they have two children, Isabel and Avi. Malina first took a job as a production assistant on the set of Chevy Chase’s comedy “Fletch Lives”. As an actor, he can be seen on the movie, “The American President”. The actor appeared on “The Larry Sanders Show” he was and on “Sports Night”. Most notably, from 2002 to 2006, he starred on NBC’s “The West Wing”.

TMZ reports that “The West Wing” actor says tenants of Malibu were notified on Saturday by a flier posted to residents’ mailboxes contemplating an undertaking to have Fire Camp 8 house 80-100 prisoners forthcoming. Wait a minute, in beautiful Malibu? Yep, in beautiful Malibu.

Malina does intend to fight this proposed plan for a government prison stating, “(It would be) a quarter of a mile from my home. My kids and their friends bike, skateboard, run, and play here. That will all change if a jail opens in our midst. It is deeply disturbing to think that such an extreme decision would be made without any interaction with the residents here.”

It is said that reportedly 24 fire camps in Los Angeles County presently house convicts and are supposedly currently “looking into what camp to house the inmates.”
