NEW YORK (Reuters) - A man who was previously convicted of stalking actress Uma Thurman and harassing her family for two years was arrested and jailed again last week, police said on Tuesday.

Jack Jordan was arrested at his home in Montgomery County, Maryland as he was researching the Oscar-nominated actress on Google, a police spokeswoman said.

Montgomery County police spokeswoman Blanca Kling said Jordan was arrested on the request of Brooklyn, New York prosecutors where the case originated. He is in custody awaiting extradition to New York.

Jordan was convicted in 2008 of sending harassing e-mails to Thurman's father and brother, loitering for hours on the steps of Thurman's Manhattan apartment and visiting her trailer on the set of the 2006 film "My Super Ex-Girlfriend."

Thurman, who testified at Jordan's 2008 trial, starred in the "Kill Bill" movies and has a long list of film credits that include roles in "Pulp Fiction" and "The Producers."
