WE NEVER WOULD HAVE GUESSED THIS IS ROBERT DOWNEY JR

We’re amazed and fascinated by the fact that both of these photos are of Robert Downey Jr. He makes a plausible black man, doesn’t he? Robert is made up for his role in Ben Stiller’s new comedy “Tropic Thunder.” It’s a satire about hammy actors thrown into unexpected jungle circumstances. London papers are trying to stir up indignation by saying Downey’s insulting in “black face” and suggesting they should have hired a black actor for the role. Ridiculous. It’s just a comedy. Maybe it’ll be funnier than Ben’s usual gross-out movies.

  1. I am against any film that makes fun of the American Negro. They have added much culture to the world with the likes of O.J. Simpson, P.Daddy, Fitty Cent, Don King and Snoop dog.

  2. I love the pre marketing of this by “pushing” it out there that there is some perception of racism going on because crackhead Downey is playing a black guy. It’s great free marketing and Stiller and the rest of the producers must be loving it! They better hope that it doesn’t end up like Snakes on a Plane.

  3. ben stiller’s a prick. i never thought he was funny, and was always surprised at how succesful he was.

  4. 1:42 AM, Prince Von-A….Yes, yes, yes, and let us not forget Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, these supposed ‘reverends’. Yeah, sure, the devil’s reverends.

  5. I have never liked a movie with Ben Stiller. It is exactly like a play from a 3rd rate Playhouse on the Square. He is soooo riding the coat-tails of his great actor and comedian pappy, Jerry Stiller, of Seinfeld fame. Reminds me of a flap-eared short leprechaun. Robert Downey is a passable actor. The movie sounds dumb

  6. he looks “blacker” and handsomer than Bad breath Obama.

  7. Can Robert live up to the LARGER THAN LIFE expectation of the human anatomy that one would think an African-American man would possess?

  8. The character is making fun of method actors. I’m beginning to think everyone is illiterate and is unable to read the description of the movie.

  9. *Sigh* – does anyone really READ anymore – not just skim the text and pick up the first and last sentences? Downey’s character was supposed to be a white, classically-trained actor who was willing to do whatever he needed to do in order to work – even if it meant pretending to be a Black man in a movie. So, for all of those people who bemoan the fact that “he’s playing a Black man” and “a Black man should have played the role” – well, you will lose CONTINUITY if the character is supposed to be white in the rest of the movie OR if you replace RDJ with a black character just for those scenes. I’m African-American and am not offended by this portrayal. This wouldn’t be an issue if people would just do the research then try to fully comprehend what they read instead of just using an inapplicable heuristic (e.g. “white man in black makeup = racism).

    WHAT EVER HE WANTS TO DO IN HIS FUTURE IS FINE WITH ME AND TO OPEN YOURSELF IN ALL DIRECTIONS IS WHAT MAKES HIM A DAM GOOD ACTOR AND OPEN MINDED IS KEY TO HIS FUTURE?
