A judge in Connecticut has postponed actor Rip Torn's next court appearance until March, citing a scheduling conflict. The "Men in Black" actor was to appear in court on Wednesday to enter pleas to burglary and firearms charges.

He is accused of breaking into a bank in his hometown of Salisbury last month with a loaded revolver while intoxicated.

Torn has been in an alcohol rehabilitation program since shortly after his January arraignment. Torn had received probation last year as part of a Connecticut DUI case and also had alcohol-related arrests in New York in the past.

Torn is now due in Litchfield Superior Court on March 9.
