Oh for fucks sake. Sometimes I want to smack the hell out of my fellow "journalists" who make us all look like a bunch of bitter college prankster buffoons. Take for example this weak ass hack piece
written by some choad named Seth Abramovitch over at Movie Line under the heading GREAT MOMENTS IN JUNKET HISTORY.
They post the opening snippet of a failed junket roundtable in which the first question gets lobbed in by someone who is either half retarded or a total douchebag. Let's listen in shall we?
First Journalist: I’ve got to ask. What do you think [Tropic Thunder Method actor] Lincoln O’Siris would think of Jamie’s performance in this?
Robert Downey Jr.: Next question.
First Journalist: Do you think he’d approve?
Robert Downey Jr.: I have no idea how to even begin answering that question. And by the way—I want to have a good time. I want to have a great time, just that one tied my fucking shoelaces together right off the bat. What else you got?
This is exactly why there is a revolving door for these assholes in the entertainment writing/reporting business. Good thing they used "First Journalist" and "Second Journalist" instead of their real names, or else they'd be the butt of jokes by 9 o' Clock tonight. To crib from Bale, what fucking amateurs. WTF kind of question was that? And to tag team with a buddy?
I've got a feeling Abramovitch might have been Journo one or two - but I wouldn't set that in stone. Either way, the tone of the piece is one of indignant mocking at Downey and seems to think the question was a valid one. Let me set the record straight, asking an actor what his racially insensitive character from a previous film would have to say about his current black co-star AIN'T KOSHER, dickhole. It's an incredibly insensitive question that has racist undertones. And Downey's right - there's no way to answer it. It's a terrible question and he has every right to snark off at the douchenozzle who asked it, as well as the cockgobbler who followed up with "So I’ll kiss your ass and maybe it’ll be better."
Nice goin' guys. You've just illustrated why guys like me refuse to do roundtable interviews. They're filled with pinheads like yourselves.
