Cuba Gooding Jr

A Career on Fire Dummy!

What a way to ruin the opening of you new... and probably last film.

Sportscenter removed their official version of Cuba's "Rock out with your cock..." video but we found another YouTube video from a home viewer.

Red Tails... hit or miss?

From his famous Best Supporting Actor from the Motion Picture Academy acceptance speech to this...

2011 Super Bowl Commercial

Really Cuba? Are you trying to permanently ruin your acting career?

So you saved $37 on your whale watch. You should be thinking about saving your career.

(PS. You can button the shirt. It's not working for you anymore. Also, you look ridiculous in that red life vest. Adults are not required to wear a life vest on a whale watch AND you're not even on the boat.)

What an idiot and what a sad way to end a career. There is no coming back from this.

This former fan has been disappointed year after year with poor movie... and now tv commercial career choices. From Indie Wire: "It’s pretty safe to say that things have not gone exactly as planned, career-wise, for Cuba Gooding Jr..." and they posted an interview with him where he tries to justify all the bad career choices he has made in the movie industry.

Recently he is best known for another bad choice for a performance... a drunken "God Bless America" type speech to a tiny crowd in a bar using a microphone that makes his performance that much more sad.

Sadly, this is probably the only audience Cuba Gooding Jr will have for a while.    

Cuba Gooding Jr's drunken idiotic speech. 

As he said in Jerry Maguire "I got a shelf life of ten years, tops. My next contract's gotta bring me the dollars that'll last me and mine a long time. Shit, I'm out of this sport (should read movie business) in 5 years. What's my family gonna live on? Huh?"

and the bad news continues...

Cuba Gooding Jr's father sued by accountant

for non-payment of services and loans

By DAVID K. LI | New York Post | November 23, 2010

A New York accountant has a message for actor Cuba Gooding Jr’s dad: Show me the money!

Bean counter Marvin Zolt accused Cuba Gooding Sr. of stiffing him for $12,903 in tax-preparing services and another $69,607.61 in personal loans, according to a Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit.

The actor’s dad was once lead singer for R&B’s The Main Ingredient, which scored the 1972 hit "Everybody Plays the Fool".

"Mr. Zolt has performed accounting services for a number of years and they’ve had a relationship for a number of years" Zolt’s lawyer Morlan Ty Rogers said today. "There’s money that’s owed. We’re in court because he hasn’t paid".

Gooding Sr. used Zolt to prepare returns for the 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 tax years, according to the lawsuit.

Zolt originally charged Gooding Sr. $12,937.50 before knocking $3,637.50 off the price tag in "courtesy discounts" the plaintiff claimed. But then Zolt said he kicked in $3,603 to help his former client cover a tax bill.

The CPA on East 42nd Street also claims he gave Gooding Sr. $83,848.93 in loans between 2004 and 2009 and only $14,241.32 has been repaid, leaving a balance of $69,607.61, the lawsuit said.

Gooding Sr. did not return several calls seeking his comments last night.


Is there ANY good news from Cuba Gooding Jr.? Geesh. Time for a comeback? Maybe a late night infomercial would kick start his career... to a cameo appearance on Family Guy maybe?

Cuba Gooding Jr. Biography

The dramatic movie actor Cuba Gooding, Jr. was born in The Bronx, New York to Cuba Gooding, Sr. (lead vocalist of soul group The Main Ingredient) and Shirley (a singer); he has two siblings, one of whom is actor Omar Gooding. His family moved to Los Angeles after Gooding, Sr.'s music group had a hit single with "Everybody Plays the Fool" in 1972; the elder Gooding supposedly abandoned his family two years later.

Cuba Gooding Jr. allegedly became a Born-again Christian at age 13, was raised by his single mother and attended four different high schools (including North Hollywood High School). He served as class President in three of them. He has been in dozens of movies but few people know that due to his lackluster performances and bad project selections.

Goodbye Cuba, we'll miss you. Wait, no, I guess we won't. You've been gone for a while.

Cuba Gooding Jr. to play Tiger Woods?

As reported recently in the media, the Tiger Woods sex scandal may be turned into a TV movie and it is being reported that Oscar-winning actor Cuba Gooding Jr. is being sought to play the role of celebrity golfer who cheated on his wife.

Cuba Gooding Jr, age 41, is reportedly being considered for this high-profile role by several Hollywood producers who are vying to make a film about the sextramarital affairs of Tiger Woods.

As soon as the Woods story made headlines, the battle has been on to dramatize the scandal for the screen.

“It makes a great movie because people love the drama of seeing someone really successful fall from the top and then scramble to pick up the pieces of their life. The race to make the first Tiger movie is now on,” a leading Hollywood producer told on condition of anonymity.

UN official Cuba Gooding Jr. Website

Cuba Gooding Jr. does not have an official website as far as we can see and this site is NOT the official Cuba Gooding Jr. website.

It is operated in good faith by a former fan who wishes nothing more than to have the former movie star back at the top of his game. For some reason, I guess many reasons, his movie career sucks.
