The Artist Actor Uggie to Retire at the Ripe Age of 10

With his most recent film The Artist racking up 10 Oscar nominations, doggie actor Uggie is calling it a career.

According to his IMBb page (yes, he has an IMDb page) Uggie has two film credits to his name: The Artist and Water for Elephants. But according to his Wikipedia page (oh yeah, he has one of those too–and it’s pretty extensive) Uggie has been in six movies–including Larry Clark‘s Wassup Rockers. Of course how could anyone forget his performance as a beautiful, shirtless, bi-sexual ingenue, exposed to the drugs, sex and violence of the underground LA punk scene.

According to his Facebook page, Uggie had a brief fling with Emmy Rossum.

We here at FishbowlLA personally think Uggie should ride the wave for a few more years. Even though he apparently has a younger, better-looking brother named Dash ready to take his place.
