Looks like Sony is hoping the Spacey stuff all blows over as there are reports that they're going to push the release date for "All the Money in the World" back to next June. They had previously announced that they were keeping the release date of late December but were dropping the Oscar campaign for Spacey's supporting role.

i haven't ever gone looking but i'd be curious to hear from people like Kate Winslet or Jodie Foster (who seems to really take to assholes, given her casting Gibson in The Beaver in 2010).

Imagine going to Europe to make a movie with Polanski and having it end up one of his lesser works. Like, Adrian Brody probably ended up benefitting long term from starring in The Pianist (or he would have if he weren't apparently allergic to success), but imagine being Walter Matthau, going to Europe to film a movie with a rapist less than a decade after he fled the US and ending up starring in loving Pirates.

-Blackadder- posted:

Wait, was he arguing against people being transgender or against people being transracial, or something else altogether?

As far as transracial goes, I've literally never even heard of the concept.

Last year it was revealed that a woman working for the NAACP wasn't actually African American, but Caucasian. Her defense was she identified as AA, so that should be considered her race. Crews is married to a Caucasian women, so his argument was shouldn't his kids be able to identify as Caucasian if they wanted to. He was trying to bring up the point that since people can choose what gender they identify with, why can't they choose what race they identify with. But he worded it all wrong. Instead of saying "why is it okay to be transgender, but not transracial", he should have said "why is it not okay to be transracial?" He should never have brought up transgendered people, and rightfully caught flack for doing so.

Oh I definitely think Tambor needs to go, regardless of what the consequences might be for the production itself.

But I actually like your idea there about just switching over to a brand new character that examines the issue of transitioning from a new perspective. But obviously the casting would have to be a home run for it to work.

I've never watched the show, so can't really comment on the characters, but would it be possible to have one of the other characters comes to term with who they are, and inspired by Tambor's character's decision, decide to transition themselves?

Nobody else currently on the show could just carry it on their shoulders like Tambor can(at least in my opinion). I think you'd have to go outside and nab a legit lead actor to get people to buy in.

Yeah, that wouldn't work unless they got a whole new supporting cast.

Basebf555 posted:

Crews is in a precarious position, which really only makes what he did even more courageous. He's not A list, he doesn't star in movies that make a ton of money, he's a really great ensemble player and he can throw in a memorable cameo if you need him to, but entire productions aren't living and dying because of him. He's also a bit on the older side, because he didn't get into acting until he had finished with his completely separate career, and so age will be something going forward that people will be able to point to as an explanation for him not getting work if they really want to.

Work dries up for guys like Terry Crews all the time, regardless of talent(and he's got plenty). The powers that be can decide that he won't work anymore and there are reasons they can use to justify it if they really want to. The public will forget about Terry Crews very quickly.

He's always in Adam Sandler's films, so at least he has that

There may be some practical reason for it. A lot of things that you'd think would be super easy to fake, end up being strangely difficult when you're actually on a movie set trying to do it in real life and have it not come off as cheesy on film.

On the other hand this is Tarantino we're talking about, so I wouldn't be surprised if he was just being a jackass.

Either way, the first rule on every set, no matter who the director is, should be that no movie, no matter how great, is worth someone being physically or psychologically harmed.

And that directors who don't listen to their own stunt professionals should be next in line to do the dangerous stunt that was so important it was going to make or break the entire movie.

There's the story about The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly where Leone was going to shoot the big bridge explosion scene, and he wanted Clint Eastwood and Eli Wallach down near it when it went off. Clint asked Leone where he was going to be, and Leone pointed to the top of a faraway hill. Clint then told him "Then that's where we're going to be."

Also, on that film, Wallach was nearly hanged, set loose on a runaway horse, nearly decapitated by a train, and accidentally drank acid.

One of the NCIS boxsets had a feature that was the cast at a restaurant talking about acting and some such, and there was a bit where Michael Weatherly talked about the pressures of auditions, and I'll always remember with Perette interjected "At least they don't always try to get you to take your shirt off."

Add Parks and Rec to the RIP list, too, although I guess that started by hiring Rob Lowe. The Office is half-tainted since one of their biggest moments (Jim and Pam's wedding) uses a Chris Brown song very prominently. I believe this was even after the Rihanna stuff.
