Rival hackers are duking it out on the site of Matrix actor Harry Lennix. Lennix, who played Commander Lock in the second two films of the Matrix trilogy and more recently played Boyd in Joss Whedon's Dollhouse, maintains the site harrylennix.com.

Wow teh internetz is filled with interesting scandal today LOL

I think what you have here is Alanis Morissette.
Its running Frontpage ... need I say more?
it would certainly qualify as metafictional irony, because it self-consciously addresses the devices of fiction. ie - this is only interesting not because of the actor himself, but because there are hackers duking it out on the website of an actor whose character had no belief in the ability of hackers. it also has a dash of cosmic irony about it for the same reasons, whether lock is "made up" or not.

That's not irony.
You cannot be shown the Matrix....
This has all happened before. It will all happen again.
