Political correctness makes life less fun once again.

I'm personally sick of non-murderers being allowed to play the role of murderers.
Under this guy's thinking, an actor should only be allowed to perform one role: the actor himself. Dogme 08!

Pretending to be a murderer is easy. Only the supreme elect may be privy to the unknowable gnostic wisdom of dongs and butts.

"Gnostic wisdom of dongs and butts"

Actors should follow the beliefs of those they portray. Did you know that the new Indiana Jones movie coming out this summer doesn't have ONE actor who actually believes in the Nazi Ideals despite there being dozens of Nazis in the movie?
Billy the Poet - 2008-05-08
Cate Blanchett was briefly a communist, however. But she named names.

I hope we can turn this asshole into an internet celebrity in the worst possible way. I hate these kinds of people.

Isn't trying to deter straight people from gay roles homophobic?
Ersatz - 2008-05-08
I agree. It's time for actors to stop pretending they're people they're not.

Actually, aren't all actors pretty gay to begin with?
karl hungus - 2008-05-08
I've never wanted to punch someone in the neck this much in my entire life.
sosage - 2008-05-08
If only he knew of all the gay actors playing straight characters.
Rodents of Unusual Size - 2008-05-08
Yeah, talk to Kevin Spacey sometime, bub. 5 stars for missing the mark...of irony.

Also, Will didn't get laid because he was a tool and codependent. That was the point of the show.

violenza - 2008-05-08
"Yikes." HATE.
StanleyPain - 2008-05-08
Wow..that's some fucking retarded logic.

I also like how he conveniently avoids the issue of maybe lots of gay actors don't give a fucking shit and don't want to play gay characters all the fucking time. Mr. I Speak For Gay Rights ought to maybe actually read interviews and shit with gay actors who have expressed the sentiment that they want to be thought of as actors, not gay actors.

DID YOU KNOW BEN STILLER ACTUALLY WASN'T IN THE MILITARY?? HOW CAN HE PLAY AN ACTOR PRETENDING TO BE A SOLDIER FOR A MOVIE IF HE HIMSELF IS NOT A MEMBER OF THE MILITARY?
Faggot.

Oh man, didn't you idiots watch the whole thing? He blows all of your objections out of the water at the end!

Also, uhm, I thought Dave Foley was gay? I mean, I heard.

WOAH THERE DC COMICS, YOU'VE GOT SOME ISSUES

Billy Buttsex - 2008-05-08
Baleen, I don't get your comment here.

bac - 2008-05-12
that made me want to hunt this guy down and blow my nose in his face.

UnderANeonHalo - 2008-05-08
5 stars of stupidity

His substitution of the word "black" for "gay" at the end didn't offend me in the least. Seriously, Dave Chapelle and Eddy Murphy are allowed to put on white make up for comedic purposes but a white man isn't? I am sick to death of all this PC bullshit where a black person does something and it's ok because he's "oppressed" but a white guy does the same thing and it's wrong because he's an "oppressor". A douche is a douche and it doesn't matter what race, sexuality, or religion he or she is. The real racism is the double standards imposed on different ethnicities for the same behavior.

(I meant to put that here shit)

kingarthur - 2008-05-08
Wow. You're also joyless, Neon. Go back to freep. You're like the bizarro counterpart to this guy.

Also, Crash was about white people? Exclusively? What movie was he watching?

Also, the only gay actor in the cast of The Birdcage was Nathan Lane? What? I mean, double what?

I hate this asshole.

bac - 2008-05-12
Yes the real racism is the double standard of which you speak...not people hating people of a different colour.

boner - 2008-05-08
Crash *is* a shitty movie.

Also, retarded roles should be played be retards.
CornOnTheCabre - 2008-05-09
agreed 100%

but probably not for the reasons that this guy is thinking of.

Billy Buttsex - 2008-05-08
5 stars because I thought this whole thing was a joke until about halfway through, when I realized that OH MY GOD THIS GUY IS BEING SERIOUS AND IS OFFENDED.
StanleyPain - 2008-05-08
I'm sur ehis other videos are comedy gold but, like a true YouTube pussy, they're private.
ONLY PEOPLE WHO AGREE WITH MY SCREEDS SHOULD WATCH THEM. THAT WILL CONVINCE THE HOMOPHOBES!!

I keep thinking this is being narrated by Kenny from 30 Rock.
dr_rock - 2008-05-08
I thought it sounded like Michael McDonald from Mad TV

wtf japan - 2008-05-08
That is a damn good blackface.
Rodents of Unusual Size - 2008-05-08
I can't wait until this guy reviews that episode of the Sarah Silverman show where she finds out what it's like to be black.

Spoonybard - 2008-05-09
"but not once did he mention how far we need to go to level the playing field for gay actors"

I thought being gay was the second best way to succeed in show business, right after being jewish
Random - 2008-05-10
Five stars for aspergermosexuality.
Monchiles Monchiles - 2008-05-13
Same. Also, that was exceptionally good blackface.

poopskin - 2008-05-14
gill-yanhall?
Janusian Soul - 2008-06-04
Why not a black actor? Because Ben Stiller doesn't care about black people.
j lzrd / swift idiot - 2008-08-01
That blackface is supremely good.
robotkarateman - 2008-09-06
This dickface is white, isn't he? His voice just screams "I GREW UP IN SEATTLE AND THINK ALL MINORITIES NEED ME TO SPEAK OUT IN THEIR DEFENSE BECAUSE I'M AN ENLIGHTENED CAUCASIAN."

People like this need several dickpunches a day until they learn that white people "defending" black people is demeaning and racist.
lordpotato - 2008-09-25
Wasn't the actor who played will actually the gay one? This video falls into my "who gives a shit" bin. I could barely pay attention to it. They're actors, they act.
Bort - 2008-09-25
Gotta love how the only way to make these sort of points is to disassociate one's self entirely from the culture and society in question. I can understand why a Martian might ask "Why - is - black - pride - good - if - white - pride - is - bad?" but those of us who grew up here on earth shouldn't need it explained. If you ever have to spell it out for anyone, be prepared to use small words; it'll probably help.
