Seth Rogan, Evan Goldberg, Michael Cera, Ellen Page, Katherine Heigel, and now Jay Baruchel.
It's official: Canada has taken over comedy.
Edit: This movie has the potential to be the most fall-on-the-floor, throw-up hilarious movie in quite a while. Hope it delivers.
Robert Downey Jr. isn't playing black or playing blackface.
He's playing a guy who plays black by putting on blackface.
Which is infinitely more awesome.
Um... no.Actually judging by the trailer, he's playing a guy who gets reconstructive surgery to become permanently black.
THAT'S why it's awesome.Entertainment Weekly said:If you don't recognize that African-American actor, there's a good reason: He's white. In Tropic Thunder, Robert Downey Jr. plays Kirk Lazarus, a very serious Oscar-winning actor cast in the most expensive Vietnam War film ever. Problem is, Lazarus's character, Sgt. Osiris, was originally written as black. So Lazarus decides to dye his skin and play Osiris, um, authentically. Funny? Sure. Dangerous? That's an understatement. ''If it's done right, it could be the type of role you called Peter Sellers to do 35 years ago,'' Downey says. ''If you don't do it right, we're going to hell.''
