The Academy flipped out for The Wrestler a few years ago. Why would they want to change their tune in the face of an actual wrestler. I nominate “Macho Man” for two reasons. 1) He was brilliant as Bone Saw McGraw in Spider-Man, and 2) do you really want the ghost of “Macho Man” Randy Savage coming after you?
It’s doubtful that the Academy is too familiar with Road Trip, but if they were, they’d know that Mila Amber Davis made a big impression as Rhonda. Plus, she died from complications during knee surgery. KNEE surgery. I never realized that knees were such ticking timebombs but it’s surprisingly more common than you’d think. I’ll have to discuss with my wife, but I’m thinking of having both of mine removed as a precaution.
In additon to his soundtrack work on Rush Hour 2, The Fast and the Furious, and ROBOTS, he also appeared in Gangsta Sh*t: The Movie. I say eligible.
