respondingtojblogs: "While real life continues to prevent me from posting anything of real substance, I came across this:
After receiving numerous plaudits for his role in 8 Mile, Eminem has finally lined up a new part to follow on with his Hollywood success story. The rap superstar is reportedly going to play Dmitry Salita, the Jewish boxing sensation, on the big screen.
Which is quite incredible, considering I used to slum in the same Chabad shul as Salita and didn't even know he boxed for several years.
IMDB doesn't have the movie listed and the report is kinda old, but this kid definitely deserves it. His website is here.
I think I owe someone a hat tip for this. Let me know who you are"
