Possible MTV Lifetime Achievement Award Recipients

As you may have been able to gather from the TWoP content this week, the MTV Movie Awards are this Sunday, and for the first time ever, they're live. So for the first time ever, we don't know who's winning what ahead of time, and that includes the recipient of their Lifetime Achievement Award. Historically, the award has been given to kitschy icons with strong retro appeal (Shaft, Jason Voorhies, Chewbacca), or else goofily obscure actors who serve as a visual punch line (Clint Howard), or, uh...Tom Cruise, that one time. So since we're in the dark this year, we figured we'd take some guesses as to who MTV might choose to honor/mock with the award this year.

Jeff Cohen (a.k.a. Chunk from The Goonies)
PROS: Possibly the perfect combo of of Chewbacca-esque retro kitsch appeal and Clint Howard-esque obscurity. Very well might agree to a tandem Truffle Shuffle with Jack Black. Would bug the holy hell out of Corey Feldman.
CONS: How can we put this delicately...is he alive? You sure? He didn't die of autoerotic asphyxiation or eating Pop Rocks and cola or anything? Well, fantastic! There are no cons, then.

Andy Dick
PROS: Has given his life, career, and tattered dignity to the service of MTV Movie Awards film parodies for the last ten years or so. Putting him in front of a live mic holds possibility of being most YouTubed moment of all time. Will probably make out with Damien Fahey on the pre-show.
CONS: Just as likely to fall asleep in front of a live mic as anything else. Has probably been eclipsed by Lohan as Hollywood's most on-the-verge celebrity. Will probably make out with Trishelle Cannatella at the after-party.

Judge Reinhold
PROS: He's Judge Reinhold! ...Remember? From Fast Times? ...At Ridgemont High? Why did we have to finish that title? Don't you kids know Fast Times At Ridgemont High? Where do you think Sean Penn came from, Casualties of War? WHAT DO YOU MEAN, "CASUALTIES OF WHAT?"
CONS: He's probably picking up a plaque at the AARP awards, Gramps.

Kirk Cameron
PROS: Pretty sure Growing Pains reruns still get some play on cable. One of very few people in the Venn diagram where "Teen Stars Of The 1980s" meets "Alive."
CONS: "Boyishly cute" isn't quite the same when you're pushing forty. Not in movies. "But the Left Behind series..." No.
