Tropic Thunder

Much is being made over the fact that Rober Downey, Jr. is supposedly portraying a black character in the upcoming Ben Stiller film Tropic Thunder.

It should be noted that Downey is in fact playing an eccentric white actor who goes to extremes to get into his role, and is surgically altered to appear black. Having a black actor portray a white actor attempting to be black would not only be confusing, but seem a bit too much a like Victor Victoria!
