Waiting to Shine
On Hollywood Walk Of Fame

The outpouring love for Luke Perry proves he’s a strong candidate to get a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame — and yet, it’s gonna take at least 5 years before he can be immortalized.
The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce tells TMZ … they would be very happy to consider Luke for a star on the Walk of Fame, but because it didn’t happen before his death … the process is a bit more complicated.
Typically, a celeb can be nominated by anyone, but the application must include a written statement from the celeb that he or she wants the star and will attend the ceremony if approved.
In the case of a deceased celeb … the family has to give its permission for the process to move forward — only one deceased nominee is approved each year.
We broke the story — Luke died March 4 after suffering a massive stroke — which means March 4, 2024 is the earliest he can be considered. Mark your calendars, ’cause it’s gonna happen.
Luke’s nomination is a slam dunk … he enjoyed a prolific acting career on TV and in movies — rising to fame on “Beverly Hills, 90210” and most recently starring as Archie’s dad on CW’s hit show, “Riverdale.”
He also filmed a part in Quentin Tarantino‘s upcoming Charles Manson movie, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” and had prominent roles on TV shows like “Oz,” “Another World,” “John From Cincinnati,” “Jeremiah,” “Body of Proof,” and “Windfall.”
