Billy Ray Cyrus Salutes Lynch for Oscar Nomination

David Lynch received an Academy Award nomination Tuesday (Feb. 12) for best director for his work on Mulholland Drive. Billy Ray Cyrus has a bit part in the film as Gene the Poolman. “I learned so much from him on the set,” Cyrus says in a news release congratulating Lynch for his nomination. “To see David and the film getting all these accolades … well, as Errol Flynn said, ‘Success is the best revenge.’” 02/12/02
