The latest Outrage Du Jour is some ridiculous bullshit about the guy who writes James Bond novels saying he didn't think Idris Elba (Stringer Bell from THE WIRE), even though a good actor, would fit the role of Bond because he's too rough and too street, as opposed to another black actor who he thought would be a better choice.  That's the same shit as me saying "I don't see Tom Hardy as Bond because he's too rough/street for the role; I think Michael Fassbender would be better."   But nooo, dipshits all over the country cried foul and said "street" was just whiteman code for n-word and made the dude apologize.  Shit is out of control - the white man is under attack from everywhere and he's just supposed to take it because he's some kind of privileged oppressor or something.


Uh, I don't think you understand what being an actor is about.  You play different roles, so just because Elba played a street role in The Wire, it doesn't mean that he can't play the role of Bond.  You know that's the point of an actor, you can morph into different roles.

The guy's comments would be akin to saying that Dustin Hoffman couldn't play the role of Bond because he's too feminine.  So which is it, does the author not understand the craft of acting or is he stereotyping?

I wouldn't have a problem with saying I don't think Hoffman could be Bond because he is too feminine.

Not all actors can play all roles and Hollywood is littered with stories of actors and or studios of turning down films/actors because they didn't fit the part for whatever reason.

Would I buy Seth Rogan as Bond.  Not really, I would struggle to see this casting choice.  If this came up I would say he is not serious enough.

Now if I say Idris can't play Bond because he is too street but that Denzel Washington would make a great Bond.  Is that a racist statement to say one is too street?

I guess you were replying to something ButtPlug said?  I don't know, I have his shitty posts on Ignore - it's been a lifesaver!

Hmm, a bait thread that's so unfocused it's impossible to tell if it's gone off topic. This is the sort of thing that's made ETA more like Dork Den 2.0.
