He would need so many people to nomanate him. And I can't remeber what the cost was. Some of the fan members looked in to it a few years ago. I'm not sure if I'm remebering eveything.
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce Walk of Fame Committee is responsible for selecting a new group of entertainers each year to receive stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. New recipients are announced each June for the following year. In order for a person to get a star on the Walk of Fame, he or she must agree to attend a presentation ceremony within five years of selection, and a fee (currently $25,000, up from $15,000) must be paid to the Trust; some of it ($5,000 of $15,000 in December 2003) is set aside for maintenance and repair, with the rest going towards the installation, security, publicity, and staging costs.
The fee is often paid by sponsors such as film studios and record companies, as part of the publicity for a release with which the honoree is involved.; as Johnny Grant pointed out in 2006: "These studios, when they want a star and they've got a picture opening, they'd give you $100,000". On other occasions, the fee is paid by a fan club.
