World Poker Tour Director Matt Savage could hardly stand the anticipation as he finally received his long awaited residual check for making an appearance in the film "Lucky You".


The envelope arrived with the return address from SAG-AFTRA Residual Department, so we know it's going to be a good one. 

"Lucky You" was released in 2007.  Matt has waited 15 years for this damn check! 

Time to buy that brand new automobile Matt!!!!

Or maybe construct an addition to your home?  In-ground pool perhaps?  How about one of those fabulous Shulman cruises around the world?

"Lucky You" starred Eric Bana, Drew Barrymore and Robert Duvall and, of course, Matt Savage.  The American drama film was directed by Curtis Hanson.

The synopsis of "Lucky You" courtesy of the film aggregation website Rotten Tomatoes:

"Huck Cheever (Eric Bana) is a talented poker player who must balance an intense love affair with the feats he must accomplish to win a slot in the world championship game in Las Vegas. If he makes it to the table, there is a chance he may have to compete against his father (Robert Duvall), a poker legend who abandoned Huck's mother years ago."

The film was a box-office bomb, only grossing $8.4 million against a $55 million budget.

So how big was Matt Savage's check?


WOMP WOMP WOMP.....$5.01!!!!

Oh well, Mike "The Mouth" Matusow also made an appearance and should be getting his check soon.
