Robert Downey, Jr. has been cast to portray a black male in a Ben Stiller movie entitled “Tropic Thunder”. I haven’t come across a clip of a trailer yet, but I am a huge Ben Stiller fan (Zoolander is my ish!) and I’m hoping this doesn’t cross the line. Seems doubtful that they will be able to pull it off without a ton of backlash…but it’ll be interesting to find out.
“If it’s done right, it could be the type of role you called Peter Sellers to do 35 years ago,” Downey said. “If you don’t do it right, we’re going to hell.”
The studio plans to debut the trailer online March 17. In one scene, Lazarus tries to bond with a real African-American cast mate by quoting the theme song from “The Jeffersons.” (Source)
Cat on a Hot Tin Roof premiered on broadway last night. The show was directed by Debbie Allen and has an all black cast.

How bout Gary Coleman is still practicing celibacy after tying the knot with 20-something year old Shannon Price. I’m so confused right now…like, why get married if not to have sex?? In-house punani and you still not cuttin?? Dude! That’s GAY!
No for real! I’m finally convinced. The talking with his eyes closed thing, his longtime “relationship” with Dion Mial (aka Rainbow Francks), the “beat-her” mentaility…hell, the Uggs!
In a behind the scenes Access-Hollywood interview [Couples Uncensored], the little man tried his best to show us how normal they really are, but when Shannon made a point of telling GC he need’s to moisturize his situation….I lost it! This interview actually sealed the deal for me…these two are not (and never will be) knockin boots.
I wrote about YouTube being down the other day…and everyone thought I was loopy. But how bout YouTube was the target of Pakistani officials that wanted to censor their people from viewing an anti-islamic video featuring right-wing Dutch politician Geert Wilders.
The Pakistani Telecommunications Authority (PTA) sent an irate letter to Internet service providers, ordering them to prevent people in Pakistan from visiting YouTube.
The block was intended to cover only Pakistan but extended to about two-thirds of the global Internet population, The Associated Press cited Renesys Corp, an Internet monitoring company, as saying.

Hey guys! Sorry for the inconvenience but YouTube is down and has been for several hours now… So if you can’t see some of the videos posted on the site…it’s not me….it’s YouTube! You can even try it yourself by going directly to the site.
Word on the street is that YouTube was hacked and has mysteriously disappeared from the web…
YouTube has disappeared from the Internet, apparently the victim of hackers who managed to gain control of its root DNS record. My wife and I were just moments ago watching some videos and suddenly YouTube became unreachable. A whois request for Youtube.com returns this:
Meet Nehemiah Musa Wells. Wells, who is 22 years old, was busted last week in Cobb County for aggravated sexual battery, child molestation and sexual battery after having sexual “relations” with a 13 year old girl he met on MySpace. [Side Note: I wonder if he met Ne-Yo Wednesday night?]
I don’t know the specifics of the case, but it appears that the relationship was discovered after the girl’s father came home early and found Wells hiding in his daughter’s closet. The arrest warrant states that Wells first met the girl at her home on November 1st and engaged in sexual intercourse with the girl without her consent at the time.
Dayum…another MySpace hook-up ends badly! Will y’all ever learn??
