We've had lots of discussions about rappers, reality TV stars and athletes being cast in mainstream films. Samuel L Jackson already said that 50 Cent is not an actor and should stay out of movies. And today, Gary Oldman is targeting athletes.
The actor recorded a video for Jimmy Kimmel and on behalf of Actors Against Acting Athletes, making a passionate plea for basketball players and other athletes to leave acting to professional actors, and to stick to what they're good at, which is sports.
And of course, no Gary Oldman video would be complete without a little yelling. Check it out below.
adamxmarshall...really? Normally I would say everyone in entitled to an "opinion" no matter how sh*t it is...but, Gary Oldman is probably the second best actor in the world after Daniel Day-Lewis. You need to educate yourself real fast before you make yourself look dumb again.
Gary Oldman is brilliant, can't believe there is actually a negative comment about him here. Does anyone recall another about a martial arts flick that Gary Oldman and others were promoting? They posted it on this site a while back and I forgot that the movie was called but it loooked bad ass.
Dude, what's your problem? Dont be attacking Mink like that. He didnt have a chance to tell you sh*t, I bet he got the best of you in another page, and you can't deal with you being wrong. You are a nobody, nothing but letters. You literally pose no threat to anyone of us "here", no matter what your claims can be. I know how Mink can be, as i have been a faithful WP reader for many years, and only today made an account to join the community, so i know for a fact that if you have beef with Mink, he somehow defied your logic and you just can't accept it. I hope you feel as empty as the bytes that carry your worthless words across the net.
I love how mr. smiles is tryin hard as f*ck to suck up to mink and dude does not even mention him...and I guess the n*gger parody gary pulled off in True Romance wasn't blatant enough so he had to make it very clear here again!
Mink's right, n*ggers should stay the hell out of movies and should keep to their bananas and watermelons...although I do enjoy eddie murphy's latest work.
WTF?!?! I'm always amazed when some of the smartest people on this site say the dumbest things. It just opens the floodgates for a tidal wave of stupidity to follow. Can we please take a day off from the hate and ignorance and just talk sensibly about film and Gary Oldman's greatness?
lmfao, this is awesome! but have to disagree with mr oldman on space jam. jeez those b-ball players were phenomenal B)

"Mink's right, n*ggers should stay the hell out of movies and should keep to their bananas and watermelons"
Well, in all fairness, they also steal televisions and hubcaps.

"And Mink is not a racist person. I know that much"
I pay little attention to the nimrods here at WP, especially when they start screaming over a f*cking joke, one that can be made in reverse by black 'comedians' without nary a word coming from their lips.
Right. Like 'Black Entertainment Television' isn't f*cking racist as hell.
