TORONTO -- Randy Quaid’s application before immigration authorities in Vancouver to stay in Canada and avoid what he claims are "Hollywood star whackers” has been put over to Nov. 23.

The Immigration and Refugee Board gave Quaid's lawyer, Catherine Sas, more time to study disclosure documents in the case, the Vancouver Province newspaper reported Monday afternoon.

Quaid was to appear before the local immigration hearing Monday morning before the postponement.

The Hollywood actor and his wife, Evi, were arrested in Vancouver in October on outstanding warrants from California.

Evi Quaid was subsequently given a pass for Canadian citizenship after it emerged her father is Canadian.

And Randy Quaid is to appear before the Immigration and Refugee Board to determine if he can stay in Canada or be deported back the United States.

The actor has told earlier immigration hearings and the media during numerous interviews that he and his wife face persecution and a possible threat to their lives from “Hollywood star whackers” if they return to California.

Quaid and his wife last weeks forfeited $500,000 in bail after they missed a court date in Santa Barbara to answer arrest warrants related to vandalism charges at a house they used to own.
