I just sat down to watch the film. But fuck whatever he’s attached to.
Don't you dare bring Jason Clarke into this!
I mean, you can clearly divorce them, its actually is super easy to do. But even if you couldnt, people can have cognitive dissonace over far "simpler" matters than this. In any case, you may be right. Perhaps he is everything that Ben Shapiro is, everything that Peterson is. Im just super uncomfortable slapping all that on him based on that soundbyte. If this was a person I knew, it would be enough to raise concern and try to get him to elaborate and discuss this with him, but not enough to condemn him right of the bat. The evidence simply isnt there for me to do that.
Key difference between them: Tatum has a career.
It's a joke on his acting capabilities, which is he has little to none and his only quality is looking like the prototypical white action hero guy figure.
aaah, i was looking the joke from a incorrect angle then.It's a joke on his acting capabilities, which is he has little to none and his only quality is looking like the prototypical white action hero guy figure.
No one would say this about, let's say, Tom Cruise, Chris Hemsworth, Leo Dicaprio, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, etc.
It's not "all white actors look the same", it's more like "this guy hasn't got anything going for him other than being white".
People joke about Channing Tatum, but at least Tatum is very funny and self aware.
The issue is that Peterson's "self-help" is usually simple and perfunctory, and he purposely uses it as a gateway into his political beliefs. Often mixing and matching the two in his books and lectures. You can divorce the two, but you can't be familiar with one and not the other.
He was amazing in The Chicago Code.
Joel Edgerton is actually talented though. Even if you think his acting is mediocre he's a decent director.
