Caretaker 2005
Chris Rock as a leading man always seems to fail. However, Chris Rock in a complimentary comedic role rarely misses. Rock played “Caretaker” in the 2005 Adam Sandler remake of the Longest Yard, and he played it with full comedic effect; in a complete 180 from the original Caretaker.

Rock was not an athlete, but his job was to provide the laughs, which he certainly did. The issue we may have had is that in the scene where he died, the empathy we had for the character wasn’t there, as other than his jokes, we did not learn that much about him. This might be the reason why the “other” Caretaker could enter the Hall first.

The Bullet Points:
Movie Appeared:
The Longest Yard (2005)

Chris Rock

Role Portrayed:
Manager to the Mean Machine

Why you should vote for him:
This was the type of role that Chris Rock was perfect for; this film is not half as funny without him in it.

Why you should not vote for him:
You might prefer the James Hampton version.
