Good News for a Bad News Bear

He used to be a "Bad News Bear" then he became a limo driver, security guard, and pizza delivery boy. Now he is up for an Oscar for his supporting role in "Little Children."

Jackie: Back on Top

Jackie Earle Haley was a talented child actor who Hollywood threw away simply because he was no longer a cute kid. If anyone knows how cruel life can be, it must be Haley. He never slipped into drugs, he simply became a working class American. Apparently the years away from movies only helped him become a much better actor. I have to admit... it's a great feel good story.

Haley was awakened at 7:30 a.m. by his wife, who had just watched the announcement. "She came running in the room, just crying and screaming, 'You got it, you got it!' Dude, I sat up and was consumed with emotion. We hugged each other for five minutes just crying.

Among the many emotions he felt was "this wonderful sense of validation. It makes me want to give every Academy member a big hug ... I'm just going to walk around high as a kite, on cloud nine. No matter what, it's going to be a good day."

That's awesome. I'm happy for you, Haley.
