Dennis Leary on "Hating" Michael J. Fox

| Filed under: Celebrity FeudsEtc.

Leary Vs MJFox

Dennis Leary's popular and critically acclaimed show Rescue Me is coming to an end this season, just days before the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

There's bound to be some mixed emotions about it, especially around such a heavy time. But that's what the show was all about: balancing those emotions.

Dennis has recently had some other emotions about the show, though, that has been nominated countless time (he too), but has yet to win anything. What Emmy the show DID win, however, went to Michael J. Fox for a guest appearance.

And Dennis Leary is hilariously pissed off at his friend for winning it:

"In the beginning, when I was getting nominated — or we were, Peter Tolan and I — it was an honor. I still believe that. The only thing we won was for Michael J. Fox's guest role. I'm happy for him, but Mike's got, I'm guessing, four or five Emmys. So when you get to the point where one of your friends already has four Emmys, and you got him one of them, there's a greedy little part of me that's like, 'You know, I wouldn't mind having one.'"

LOLz! And when the interviewer brought up that Fox is nominated for an appearance on The Good Wife this year, here's what Dennis had to say:

"If he gets nominated and wins that one, I'm going to his house and I'm stealing the Emmy from him. Like he needs another one! He also has, like, $600 billion in 'Spin City' money. I hate him. He's a talented guy and nice and successful. He's the worst kind of friend because he's actually the greatest human being alive. There is no way to look good standing next to him."

Ha! Awww!

We can't help but think that it's adorable that Dennis Leary, who is known for his manliness, calls Michael J. Fox "the greatest human being alive." The jealously there is so funny and in such good spirit!

Dennis, we want to wish you good luck with the Emmy bids, and whatever you move on to do in the future after the show! It's been an amazing series about such a hard time, and we know that what you choose to do next will be just as great.

Congrats on all the success!

    Dennis Leary is one of the funniest persons alive. His character in "Rescue Me" shows his deep dramatic chops, but this guy is better when funny. I think he's really a great guy, of course that's just my opinion as I have never met him. But talent that great is unmistakable!!!!

    Perez, I love your new website! Been a fan for years, and the positivity change is so amazing! Love it and you! Keep doin what u doin! :)

    He is in no way jealous of Michael J. Fox. Sounds to me like they are very good friends and that there is alot of respect there. Re: JonesLK – And I want to know what you are on. The "new" website sucks big time, your the only one that I have seen that says that you like it. Too much shit on it, takes just as long to load everything up and it's half empty most of the time. And what positivity change? Read between the lines honey, he hasn't changed, he just says things in a different way. Once an ass, always an ass.

    who DOESN'T love MJF?? he's such a wonderful person, and you can just feel the love from Leary. they're both great actors.Re: granny j – I actually hadn't seen his comedic side, but just from this quote I think you're right! lol
    Re: buggadaboo – and if this site is so terrible and you dislike Perez so much, why are you here??? save us all your bitching and save yourself the unnecessary aggravation, and just DON'T COME HERE. I wouldn't be stupid enough to visit and comment on sites I dislike, so quit being a moron and do yourself a favor. you'll prob feel much happier once you quit coming here. smile and have a good day!

    Dennis should keep at it. He's very good, and he'll win one or two eventually. The trick to Emmy appears to me to be having the episode or string of episodes and character in question involved in, addressing, and struggling to overcome a very deep, relevant quandary of a situation that is a timely, painful and current but mostly unexamined issue in real life. Sometimes it's something that will make viewers a bit uncomfortable.

    If the comedy guys came up with their OWN Emmy's, Leary would have a mantle full.
