This refers to the character of Cheddar Bob, played by actor Evan Jones in the seminal 2002 musical drama 8 Mile starring rapper Eminem as Jimmy "B-Rabbit" Smith Jr.

Do we know what his last name was? Does he even have one? I've been searching on-line and on IMDB, but can find an answer. Wondering if it ever came up in the dialogue.

  • I liked the movie 8-Mile, I really did, but in what way is it seminal?

  • @Steve-O I see it as a cultural reference point, moreso even than the Fast&Furious franchise.

His last name was Zurowsky. There's a scene where Eminem gets into a fight with his mom's boyfriend, who happens to be about the same age as Eminem. The exchange goes something like this:

Eminem's mom: Baby, are you staying here for a while or what?

Eminem: Just for a couple weeks, till l can save enough to get my own place.

Mom's boyfriend: Just like Bob Zurowsky. All your friends still living at home, aren't they? What a bunch of *** losers.
