Josh Lucas Agrees -- Renfro Got Screwed!

2/26/2008 7:15 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ caught up with Josh Lucas Tuesday afternoon, and he agreed that Brad Renfro got effed when he was omitted from the RIP reel.


He also says Roy Scheider shouldn't have been excluded either, but Roy's death on Feb. 10 was after Academy's cutoff date of Jan. 31 for use in the broadcast.

Details, details.

#15 Rhonda...REALLY? Did you really write that? Are you 12? And who the F*C% is Josh Lucas and why does it matter what he thinks? Was he friends with Brad Renfro? So many questions....but the biggest question I have is How delusional does one have to be to think that this Josh Lucas person would actually see your post? LOL!

Taking yet another risk at getting flamed to a crisp: Renfro has become more famous dead than alive simply because the Academy did not include in the memorial montage. Maybe, like me, the Academy did not know who he was until he died. I had to look him up on IMdb; his filmography, while somewhat lengthy, was not impressive -- I had not heard of any of the movies listed.

the cut off tdate for memorials mentioned on the Oscars is January 31, 2008. He died after the cut off date. Relax people, he will be mentioned next year.

#27. You must not go to too many movies, then. Or you are very elderly or very young (like a tween) to not have heard of any of them.

I think that Brad needs to have a 1 hour special on tv just because of this. He was a great actor, and I know I will forever remember him...RIP BRAD

#30. Any self-respecting movie fan knows who Josh Lucas is. Don't worry. He's plenty known. That was why some of us were very happy TMZ or whoever cornered him re: his opinion.

Melissa: 1 hour might be juuust a little overdone, but I am with you, he deserved a 2 second pause over his picture. For those who say his hottest movies were a decade ago, that is very true. But I would also have to argue that they (the Academy) has honored members of the Our Gang series (Little Rascals for the younger set among us) and most of them were only known for being child stars, too. Just sayin'.
