Fraser is The Whale

Russell T. Davies was asked about the casting of It’s a Sin.  He insists he’s not being “woke” by following the trend of casting openly gay people in the roles.  “I feel strongly that if I cast someone in a story, I am casting them to act as a lover or an enemy or someone on drugs or a criminal or saint.  They are not there to “act gay’ because ‘acting gay’ is a bunch of codes for a performance.  It’s about authenticity, the taste of 2020.”  He goes on, “You wouldn’t cast someone able-bodied and put them in a wheelchair.”  Does the word Ironside ring a bell?

In a related story, Brendan Fraser has signed on to play a 600-lb gay recluse in the new movie, The Whale.  My God, he’s been preparing for this part for eons!  I wonder if people will get crazy about the casting, or will they just shrug and ask, “So?”  Interestingly, some are already against the casting of Fraser, claiming that the filmmakers are fat-phobic.  Apparently they haven’t seen Brendan since George of the Jungle.
