Depends how much input the Ricketts get. I could see them wanting a Girardi type if things go south.

I doubt they want to impose a more expensive name manager in Theo, if that isn't the guy Theo wants.

All I know is you somehow got to re-spawn under, like, 8 different names, and yet da Bum is perma-banned for all eternity.

That the dude is still rockin' a Tropic Thunder blackface gif in 2018 is just the horsefeathers cherry on top of a big ol' turd cake.

I want to take this moment to point out that Jon Lovitz's star has aged less gracefully than Downey's.

Arguing about avatars is a bit silly, but that's not at all the point Sammy was making.

The point I'm making is I hate Mojo's avatar more than Tom's. Infinitely so. Most everything we argue about here is completely silly, for the record.

I get it; OMC's bizarrely makes me want to punch the screen, and I really like that miniseries!

But, seriously, a horsefeathers' instantly dated blackface gag is a horsefeathers thing to still be tossing around.

but don't you get it? He was playing a character that was a self absorbed white method actor who was playing a black man in a movie within the movie, man.

Half of Jon's shtick is that he's a living, breathing (and coincidentally very conservative, which is my main beef) Jewish stereotype. So Jon "I'm not funny" Lovitz is ...look, this is just the dumbest argument I've had on this site. Take up Tom Cruise's depiction of a Jewish stereotype with Ben Stiller and some guy named Etan Cohan. They wrote the screenplay. The only thing Tom added was fat hands and the silly dance routine.

If you just want to blanket every depiction of a white guy playing a black guy as racist I can't stop you. Blackface obviously has a loaded history, but Tropic Thunder was wholely conscious of what it was doing, and it wasn't minstrel in its depiction. I think you are missing the forrest for the trees if you generalize that extremely.

Can we move this stupid argument to social/rants, please? Every time I see new posts in this thread I'm terrified that we've hired Joe Girardi or something.
