Billy "The Kid" McDonnen

Grudge Match may not have been a fan favorite of the critics, but for many this was a fun throwback remembering two of their past favorite actors, at least that is how we viewed it. In this film, Robert DeNiro plays former Light Heavyweight Champion, Billy “The Kid” McDonnen, a braggadocios though successful man living in the past. DeNiro is able to flex his comedic chops, though not necessarily his muscles, as he physically just did not look up to this. Still, this is Robert DeNiro so we will give him a pass!

Robert DeNiro

Why You Should Vote For Him:
DeNiro is a legend, even in roles that are beneath him.

Why You Should Not Vote For Him:
With all due respect to DeNiro, there are more iconic fictional boxers than this.

From the fun, though poorly reviewed boxing film, Grudge Match, we have Sylvester Stallone again donning boxing gloves, playing a former Light Heavyweight Champion of the World. Inspired by the Joe Kapp/Angelo Mosca debacle that occurred when the two former (and senior citizens) Canadian Football legends fought in a video that went viral on YouTube, the scenario was replicated in a boxing forum, thus leading to an inevitable fight between the two geriatric pugilists. We won’t spoil the ending if you haven’t seen it, but the boxing match shown on the film did not do a bad job in entertaining.
