Five people were arrested on Monday in connection with the murders of Crazy Monkey - Straight Outta Benoni actor Brett Goldin and his friend Richard Bloom.

Their bodies were found in a field next to the off-ramp from the M5 freeway to Klipfontein Road in Mowbray early on Monday, Superintendent Billy Jones said.

They were found lying on their stomachs, naked, each with a bullet wound to the back of the head.

Talk Radio 702 reported that Bloom, 28, was a fashion designer. Goldin, 27, played "B-Dog" in the film.

They were registered as missing after Camps Bay police found a credit card belonging to Goldin in the possession of three men whose car was stopped and searched at 5am.

The men were arrested for being in possession of a suspected stolen item.

Police tried to locate the credit-card holder, but could only locate family and friends.

They established that the two were last seen leaving a house party in Victoria Road in Bakoven, Camps Bay, before midnight on Saturday.

Two other men were arrested in Crawford, Athlone, at 9am on Monday.

Police said the arrested men had pointed out the bodies.

Bloom's charcoal VW Polo Playa was still missing.

The five, all in their late teens and early 20s and all from the Athlone area, are in police custody.

Three would appear on a charge of possession of stolen items in the Cape Town magistrate's court on Tuesday and all five would appear on charges of murder and robbery in the Wynberg magistrate's court on Wednesday.

According to the Crazy Monkey website, the idea was for four people - Trevor Clarence, Brendan Jack, Gavin Williams and Goldin - to have fun with a video camera.

These spots were used between music videos by MTV. The four eventually made the feature film Straight Outta Benoni. - Sapa
