Even Blackface Is Ashamed Of This

4 04 2008

Here’s a promo poster for the new comedy Tropic Thunder in which Robert Downey, Jr. plays a black soldier alongside Ben Stiller and Jack Black.

He doesn’t even look black! I mean, I know that should go without saying since he’s a white dude, but if they were gonna try and get away with this foolishness, they could have at least done it right! He looks like one of those white boys from the Saturday Night Fever era with those sideburns and that he fell asleep in a bath of Lindsay Lohan’s fake tan.

Pluto Nash + Norbit = Eddie’s New Movie

26 03 2008

*dead and crankin it with Johnny Gill in Eddie’s fat suit*  I…I…I just don’t know about this one.  I’m not knockin Eddie for it. (Get your child support paper homie)  Seriously, he’s a talented guy, but…ah, I can’t imagine paying gas money to go see this.  And who is Gabrielle Union’s agent?  Her career is as limited as Soulja Boy’s college choices. (*SMH*)  It does looks like a great movie for kids tho.  I’m sure Mel B is gonna bring her daught…umm…nevermind.  I can see Johnny (with drippin lip gloss) giving little Angel Iris the SEOD.

Blair Witch + Stupid = Romeo & P. Miller’s New “Film”

19 03 2008

Romeo and his pops Master P will star in a new horror film called The Pig People. I couldn’t make this shit up if I tried.

Rap mogul Percy “Master P” Miller and his son Romeo are preparing to star in their first full-length feature together in the new horror movie The Pig People.

The Pig People will star Romeo as “TJ,” one of five college students who venture into a haunted forest to shoot a documentary for their film class.

The students venture into the woods seeking to debunk an 18th century Louisiana myth surrounding the fearsome, half-human, half-swine “pig people.”

“I’ve never done a horror movie before,” said Romeo, who plans on majoring in film while playing sports at USC.

It’s a different kind of acting and the challenge is really allowing me to take my game to the next level,” Romeo told AllHipHop.com “We’re gonna make the audience jump out of their seats with this.”

In addition to actor Daeg Faerch (Halloween), Romeo’s father, reformed gangsta rapper Master P., is co-starring in the movie as the film’s villain.

The Pig People is being produced by Vault Load Films and directed by David Gueringer and is scheduled to be released in 2009. (Source)

O, RLY Romeo? Some people go to Julliard or even join a Shakespeare troupe down at their local junior college, Romeo does The Pig People to up his acting game. Hey, different strokes for different folks.

I know I’m gonna end up renting this when it comes out straight to DVD some night when I’m bored. Getting drunk and watching movies like this is one of my joys in life. Like I said, different strokes…

Is it me or is something just “off” about father and son working together so much? Maybe I just have a twisted mind but I think it might be time for P to take Keyshia’s advice and “let it go”.

Island D*** Through The Generations

5 03 2008

Rita Marley recently sold the rights to her autobiography No Woman No Cry to be made into a film, and she wants none other than Sideshow Betty to play her in the movie of Bob Marley’s life.

Marley is working as executive producer on the big-screen adaptation of her 2004 autobiography No Woman No Cry: My Life with Bob Marley-and has her sights set on casting the former Fugees frontwoman, her daughter-in-law, in the chronicle of her tumultuous 15-year marriage to the musician.

She explains, “Lauryn would be ideal (to play me). She sees my life as her life.”

Bob Marley’s son Rohan-with former lover Janet Hunt-is married to the “Everything Is Everything” hitmaker, who has been largely absent from the music scene following her hit 1998 debut solo album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. (Source)

I’m sure Lauryn will take this offer because she’d lie on a hot bed of coals with tarantulas pinching her nipples if she thought it would give her street cred as “a Marley”. Being married to Rohan probably isn’t doing the trick anymore since it’s widely publicized that he’s off in Africa somewhere telling chicks he’s single while she pops out babies.

I guess the island “D” had a hold on Rita, and it sure as hell has a hold on Ms. Hill. It’s gonna take Rihanna, Lady Saw and three of the Hedleys to cook up an antidote that will break that spell.
