Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. I defeated Max Baer, in the final scene, to become the Heavyweight Champion. Who am I?

Answer: Russell Crowe

Crowe, born on April 7th, 1964 in Wellington, New Zealand was cast as James Braddock. James was a boxer and he injured his hand so he was out of boxing for some time. Since his career lasted during The Great Depression, he looked hard to find some work but, due to the poor economy, he had small and minor jobs that lasted for just a couple of days.

However, Jim fully recovered from his injury and went on to win some important matches. He became the number one contender to defeat the Heavyweight Champion, Max Baer.

In the final match, Jim and Max fought for several rounds, and it ended with Jim being named the winner. Crowe starred in the movies "Virtuosity", "Body of Lies", and "The Quick and the Dead." In 2000, he was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role for the film, "The Insider", but he lost to Kevin Spacey for "American Beauty." Other Oscar nominees for Best Actor in a Leading Role that year were Sean Penn for "Sweet and Lowdown", Denzel Washington for "The Hurricane", and Richard Farnsworth for "The Straight Story." Despite this loss, Crowe won an Oscar the following year for Best Actor in a Leading Role for the film "Gladiator."
2. I threw water in Max Baer's face at a dinner. Who am I?

Answer: Renee Zellwegger

Zellweger, a native of Katy, Texas portrayed Mae Braddock in "Cinderella Man." Mae was James' wife and she worried that he would be severely injured, as a boxer, but she eventually accepted his career and told him she would always be behind him. In one scene, James and Mae were at dinner and Max was at the same restaurant. Max began to taunt James so Mae grabbed a glass of water and threw it into Max's face.

In one scene, James was showing some boxing moves to his and Mae's two children, Rosemarie and Jay, and Mae got upset.

She told Rosemarie and Jay there was no boxing in the house and that they would not be boxers but rather they would go to college. Mae was thrilled, at the end of the movie, when James won the Heavyweight Championship. Zellweger was seen in roles in the films "Bridget Jones's Diary", "Jerry Maguire", and "Reality Bites." In 2004, she won an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for the film, "Cold Mountain." Other Oscar nominees for Best Supporting Actress that year were Shohreh Aghdashloo for "House of Sand and Fog", Marcia Gay Harden for "Mystic River", Patricia Clarkson for "Pieces of April", and Holly Hunter for "Thirteen."
3. My father made me return a piece of meat to the butcher's shop because I stole it. Who am I?

Answer: Connor Price

Price, born in 1994 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada had the small role of Jay Braddock. Jay was Mae and James' son and he was hoping that his father would get back to being a boxer and have a thriving boxing career. In one scene, Jay stole some meat from the butcher's shop, and James found out about it.

He made Jay go back to the butcher and return the piece of meat. James took Jay aside and told him that, despite the fact that times were rough, it did not give him license to steal. Jay apologized and James hugged him and told him it would be alright. Price guest starred on the TV series "Will & Dewitt", "The Dead Zone", and "Doc."
4. I told Mae that something was stolen from the butcher's shop. Who am I?

Answer: Ariel Waller

Waller got the part of Rosemarie Braddock for this film. Rosemarie was James and Mae's daughter and also Jay's sister. Jay and Rosemarie got along but Rosemarie did not like that Jay stole something from the butcher's shop, so she told Mae that Jay stole a piece of meat. Rosemarie told James this, when James got home, and Mae chided Rosemarie since her brother was already in enough trouble as it is. Near the end of the movie, Mae told both Jay and Rosemarie they could not listen to the final boxing match between James Braddock and Max Baer on the radio since she was afraid bad news would be stated on James.

However, Jay and Rosemarie hid in a closet and turned on the radio and listened to the radio and were thrilled when their father won the Heavyweight Championship. Waller had guest starring stints on the TV shows "Life with Derek" and "ReGenesis." She also had a role in the film "Kardia."
5. I lost my Heavyweight Championship to James Braddock. Who am I?

Answer: Craig Bierko

Bierko, born on August 18th, 1964 in Rye Brook, New York was cast as Max Baer for "Cinderella Man." Max was a ruthless boxer and, for a long period of time, he was the Heavyweight Champion. There were some people he boxed that he even wound up killing in the ring. Max was informed that James Braddock was the number one contender for the Heavyweight Championship and he felt his fight with James would be an easy one since he considered James weak. During the final match, between Max and James, Max taunted James but James did not let this get to him since he went on to defeat Max. Max congratulated James on his win. Bierko portrayed characters in the movies "Scary Movie 4", "For Your Consideration", and "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas."
6. I was James' manager. Who am I?

Answer: Paul Giamatti

Giamatti, a native of New Haven, Connecticut landed the role of Joe Gould. Joe was James' manager and was seen at all of James' matches, as he rooted him on to score victories. There were some matches where James appeared to be losing but Joe encouraged him to hang in there and continue to work hard and fight to get a win. Joe would often yell at the referees if they made mistakes and he never seemed to get in trouble for it.

At many times in the movie, Joe and Max Baer clashed but they never got physical. Joe cheered James on when he fought against Max and got very excited when James was pronounced the new Heavyweight Champion once he defeated Max Baer. Giamatti also starred in the films "The Nanny Diaries", "Lady in the Water", and "Saving Private Ryan." In 2006, he was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for the film "Cinderella Man", but he lost to George Clooney for "Syriana."

Answer: Bruce McGill

McGill, born in 1950 in San Antonio, Texas had the small role of Jimmy Johnston. Jimmy was a boxing promoter and he was disappointed in James' poor boxing skills in several matches. He told Joe Gould that he did not want James to fight anymore since he felt that James would not bring in enough money. Joe persuaded Jimmy to not do this and give James another chance, especially since James had injured his hand. Jimmy moved to have James' boxing license suspended but James' license was eventually reinstated. Jimmy was thrilled when James started to improve and win many matches and was even more excited when James won the Heavyweight Championship. McGill was seen in the films "W", "Vantage Point", and "The Good Life."

He was undefeated for 10 matches when he lost to Dick Daniels on his 11th match. Lasky also lost to Primo Carnera but he came back and defeated Tiger Jack Fox. He was a contender for the Heavyweight Championship, but he did not get to fight for it since he lost to Charley Retzlaff and James Braddock. Simmons had roles in the movies "Barbershop", "Barbershop 2: Back in Business", and "Roll Bounce."
9. I happened to be the main announcer, at all of James' matches. Who am I?

Answer: Rance Howard

Howard, born in 1928 in Oklahoma, had the small part of announcer Al Farzin. Al was the main announcer for all of James' matches, and often expressed enthusiasm and energy at his job. In one match, James and another boxer were doing poorly and not much was happening so the fans started to boo them and throw popcorn, peanuts, and other food onto the boxing ring. Al made a notice of this while announcing, and mentioned that this was all the boxers deserved for putting on a poor show that night. Al was the main announcer for the match up between James Braddock and Max Baer to determine the Heavyweight Champion. Al announced that the judges decided to award James the Heavyweight Champion and, like with all the other matches, he was enthusiastic throughout this match. Howard had guest starring stints on the TV series "ER", "Lie to Me", and "CSI: NY."
10. I turned off the electricity at the Braddocks' home, since they did not pay the electric bill. Who am I?

Answer: Peter MacNeill

MacNeill, a native of New Brunswick, Canada had the small role of the electric man. James and Mae had a hard time paying the bills, since it was The Great Depression and there were not many jobs available. One month, James and Mae did not pay the electric bill so they were punished by the electric company. One day, Mae saw the electric man at her home, and she asked him what he was doing.

He told her that since they did not pay the electric bill, he was turning off the electricity. Mae told him he could not do that since she had children but he told her he needed a job since he had kids as well. MacNeill guest starred on the TV shows "The Summit", "The Border", and "Alfred Hitchcock Presents."
