Well, that's the rumor. Personally, I'm a little surprised that Hollywood is ready to bestow such an honor on a man with such a...colorful past. No, I'm not talking about the whole "just helping out a tranny hooker" incident. I'm talking about, among other things, Raw.
Who knew it was such a forgiving town? Well, God bless 'em. Still, as FilmDrunk notes, he'll need a sidekick. Lessee now...ah, got it!
Now that would be good television.
