    why doesn’t Michael Chiklis have a star on the walk of fame??

  2. James says:

    There is only one Old School Actor Motion Picture Category — Mr. Mifune. It would be nice to give out stars to people who had long careers and were really loved performers. Stella Stevens and Carol Lynley…..both worked for 5 decades…..where are their stars? Just asking.

  3. Robert Henry says:

    Can we get the group New Edition a star please!!!Backstreet Boys and New Kids got one and New Edition influenced them so they deserve a star!!!

  4. Am I the only one that wants to see Spongebob on the walk Come on !! The Rugrats got on so Why the hell not and before you butthurt fanboys and fangirls say ‘winy voice’ The show is not as funny as the earlier seasons and is more mean Bo Bo Be Bo Spongebob is a beloved cartoon icon who is adoring children and adults today

  5. Fran says:

    what !!!! where is Mulder and Scully’s “star” in the walk of fame ?

    • Caprizonica says:

      I know!, that’s what I thought. Specially know they’re coming back and both are still doing successfully careers.

  6. Bill says:

    WHY? WHY? WHY? Ashley Judd? She has never been a very good actress.

  7. Why not Maroon 5 first over Adam Levine himself. Heck, Beyonce doesn’t even have one solo yet (which is ming boggling!). Bruno Mars is great, but he is only 5 years in starpower-wise. the music side is always so offset.

    Do you know what is Quentin Tarantino’s net worth?
