Is It Okay For A White Actor To Play A Black Man?

Posted by | March 7, 2008 14:11 | Filed under: Top Stories

Robert Downey, Jr. as a black man in Ben Stiller’s movie Tropic Thunder (and as he appears in real life).

The film centres on a group of pompous actors making the most expensive Vietnam war movie ever made.

Fed up with their self-involved cast, the film’s makers drop them into the jungle to take care of themselves, where they get caught up in a conflict they don’t realise is real.

The cast also includes Steve Coogan, Nick Nolte and cameos from Tom Cruise and Tobey Maguire.
