A Few Weeks Ago, Sir Ian Mckellen,

who’s played some of the most iconic characters in film over the past several decades came out and said something that made waves in Hollywood as someone who’s an actor as someone who pretends for a living he came out and he said you know what I don’t think there’s any reason why we as actors should be pigeonholed into something simply because of our sexuality or simply because of our religion and although most normal people agree with that a lot of people in Hollywood had a problem with it and now someone else is coming out and saying the exact same thing it’s going to be interesting to see if he gets any pushback or blowback for this Andrew Garfield says straight actors should be allowed to portray gay characters that’s exactly what. Ian Mckellen said and that’s likely the reason. that he was asked this question when Sir Ian Mckellen was asked about this specifically it had nothing to do with gay characters and straight characters. It actually had to do with the casting of Helen Mirren as a Jewish person. Even though Helen Mirren was not Jewish and Ian Mckellen came out and he said is it an argument that a gentile cannot play a Jew and is the argument.

Therefore The Jew Cannot Play A

gentile is the argument that a straight man cannot play a gay man and if so does this mean I can’t play straight parts and i’m not allowed to explore the fascinating subject of heterosexuality. In Macbeth surely not we’re acting and he’s making a great point because by flipping it around like that what he’s essentially saying is you’re if you’re going to tell people that only gay actors can play gay. roles that aren’t you saying that only straight characters can play straight roles and do you really want to back yourself into that kind of corner well again. Andrew Garfield came out with a similar statement, Let’s dive into this. Andrew Garfield weighs in on Hollywood casting practices warns about the death of imagination Spider-man No way home and Hank saw Ridge actor Andrew Garfield recently weighed in on Hollywood‘s current casting practices and discussions surrounding whether or not certain actors can play certain characters and I think again all normal people will understand this there’ll be a couple people that say well doesn’t that mean that you can cast a black person to play George Washington or that you should cast a white person to play black panther no that’s not what that means obviously certain roles call for people with certain physical attributes whether that be their height.

  • actors pigeonholed simply sexuality simply
  • says straight actors allowed portray
  • people gay actors play gay
  • reason actors pigeonholed simply sexuality
  • gay characters exactly ian mckellen

That Be Their Build Whether That Be

their hair color their skin color whatever it may be? We know that to be the case in Hollywood We’re specifically talking about this recent burst of activism that has been well. No only a trans-person can play that no only a gay person is allowed to play this character and we’ve seen that with so many of these activists, but it’s encouraging to see people who likely are on the left just maybe not on the far far activists left come out and say something that normal people actually agree with speaking with the telegraph about his latest film on Netflix Tick Tick Boom. Garfield was asked about Hollywood casting practices and whether or not straight actors could play gay characters. Garfield responded. I think it’s two different conversations getting conflated one’s about equality of opportunity.

Im Completely In On That.

Because we should want a world where no matter your sexual orientation, your color or your heritage? Everyone gets a fair whack and yeah Every literally everyone in the world agrees with that that’s not even something that needs to be strived for. At this point, I don’t think in 99. 999 of cases that’s something that exists and has existed for quite some time. But the other is about empathic imagination and if we only allow people to be cast as exactly who they are it’ll be the death of it and that’s exactly what so many of us have been saying if you are playing say a wizard let’s go back to Ian Mckellen.

Hes Not A Wizard Is He Theres Even

a Youtube video out there. I think with Ian Mccall and Ricky Gervais, where he’s joking about that about not actually being a wizard, but he’s acting. How do I act so well? What I do is? I pretend to be the person I’m portraying in the film or play Yeah, Lord of the Rings. Peter Jackson comes from New Zealand says to me say Ian. I want you to be Gandalf the wizard and I say to him.

You Are Aware That I Am Not

really a wizard. What I want you to do is to use your acting skills to portray the wizard for the duration of the film, and this is what I did I imagined what it would be like to be a wizard and then I pretended and acted in that way on the day Yeah and how did I know what to say The words were written down for me in a script and yeah you’re not going to find any wizards out there if you’re talking about oh well this. person’s history is? He actually grew up in Mississippi to a single parent and he was in a car accident. He was 16 and now he has a limp. You know what you might not find any actors that are exactly that thing that’s what we’re talking about that’s the ridiculous nature that we’re talking about in some of these cases that that’s the standard that people want to hold.

Garfield Then Added So The Two Separate Conversations

have to happen simultaneously because I’m not willing to support the death of empathic imagination. It’s what we need most as a culture and it’s beautiful it’s the only thing that’s going to save us right now. Garfield’s comments are similar to the comments made by Ian Mckellen. Just like we talked about before and this goes through exactly what I said we’re acting we’re pretending both actors make valid points. However.

The Discussion Is A Bit More Complex

than both make it out. Actors should be cast to match up to how their characters have been previously portrayed in the source material that is being adapted or how the historical figure looked in real life and that is the great point because you want an actor to be able to portray that person like I said there is no reason that I should ever be cast to play T’challa that makes absolutely zero sense it makes zero sense whatsoever and I’m sure there’s plenty of black actors out there who wouldn’t be good. T’challa’s either because you know why maybe some of them can’t portray someone regal enough to be T’challa right you want believability. So not only do they have to have the look. They have to add the feel, but they have to have the capability to pretend to.

Be That Person And Embody That

person that’s what it’s all about that’s why someone being gay or straight doesn’t necessarily matter can they pull off this character that’s what people care about and so to hear Andrew Garfield and to hear you know Ian Mckellen again come out and say stuff like this you know that’s the stuff that needs to happen because when people like that speak out people who don’t consider themselves on the right are conservative any way shape or form, then people are forced to listen to it in the Hollywood space, and it probably emboldens a lot more people to speak out likely the reason that Andrew Garfield is saying this right now it’s probably because Ian Mckellen said it a few weeks ago, and since Ian Mckellen said it so loud. I’m sure Andrew Garfield felt much more comfortable coming out and basically. Echoing those statements now there’s going to be a lot of people who don’t believe that there’s a lot of gay actors who’ve come out and said I don’t agree with that only gay people should be playing gays yet they have no problem taking straight roles. It’s interesting how that works isn’t it but I love Andrew Garfield coming out and saying this essentially saying if we stop this then there will be no more imagination in Hollywood actors won’t even be actors there’s no reason to do anything like that anymore because at that point they won’t be acting what do you guys think about Andrew Garfield’s comments, I think woke Hollywood. The people who are very much in the activist corner gonna have a huge problem with this a massive problem with this just like they did with Ian Mckellen let me know in the comments below.
