Nick Cannon -- Breakthrough Actor?

5/25/2007 12:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Nick CannonIt's true! Nick Cannon, from MTV's "Wild 'N Out," is being honored today at the Cannes Film Festival. Apparently, someone feels that his performance in "Bobby" was groundbreaking -- and qualifies Canon as the "Breakthrough Actor of the Year."

That's quite an accomplishment for someone whose prior memorable moments include improv fart noises and "yo mama's so fat" jokes.

A legend in the making.

He's Boring now    

Damn, I saw Bobby and cant for the life of me remember what part he played. Guess he made a real dramatic impact on the casual observer of movies.

There is no such thing as a "breakthrough actor of the year" award at Cannes. Bobby is not showing in the festival. The awards - "les Palmaires" or Palms - for the films in competition will be given out Sunday.

You've taken the bait of some publicist's ploy to get Cannon some attention. TMZ should know better.

WWE does it right.    

That shows you the quality of the acting scene these days. This clown doesn't have a lick of talent.

Totally in agreement with number 5. A flash in the pan, until of course he gets arrested for something.
