Spike Lee: Hollywood Needs a 'Rooney Rule'

Spike Lee says Hollywood needs to take its cue from the NFL -- forcing studios to institute a "Rooney Rule" ... requiring studios to greenlight a certain number of movies featuring minorities.

Lee was on 'GMA' Wednesday morning when he said the problem with the Oscars is deeper than who gets nominated -- it's the fact black movies and black actors aren't getting the opportunities in the Hollywood boardrooms. 

That's why Lee wants a "Rooney Rule" -- an NFL policy that requires teams to interview at least one minority candidate for head coaching and minority jobs. 

Lee feels that someone needs to force Hollywood to hit a mandatory quota when it comes to making minority films. 

Watch the clip ... seems Michael Strahan is down to play the role of enforcer.
