GRAZER: EMINEM LOOKS LIKE 'BEST ACTOR'
Fresh off his Academy Award for Best Picture this year, superproducer Brian Grazer is now quietly telling associates he's found a new candidate for Oscar: shock-rapper and controversialist, EMINEM!
"He's turned in a performance that reminds me of Stallone in ROCKY," Grazer told a studio executive touting the lead of his production 8 MILE.
"I think the audience is going to be blown away, so will the Academy. I think we've got a good shot at getting nominated," declared Grazer, producer of A BEAUTIFUL MIND, who has publicly called Eminem a "sweet guy".
UNIVERSAL has set a November release for the EMINEM/GRAZER project -- on the doorstep of the heavy award-nominating season.
For Your Consideration: A young rapper in Detroit struggles with his anger through music. Can a white kid with a hardcore blue vocabulary and lots of hate in his heart transcend his meager beginnings and attain global success?
Meanwhile, sales of Eminem's THE EMINEM SHOW continue to be more than 50% higher than all the competition. The release, which has sold more than 3.3 million copies to date, holds on to No. 1 at BILLBOARDSOUNDSCAN for a fifth consecutive week.
