    The clip cuts off before Trevor is done speaking. And yeah absolutely any representation means the world when you’re a little kid.

    This debate, in my opinion, are two separate debates that people are combining as one. I personally believe and agree with the idea that an actor or an actress should be able to play any role, however, they should be aware of the lack of representation and the opportunities that minority people lack in Movies in general but especially in Hollywood. I think that the idea that minority figures should be played only by minority actors is not a good idea, but people should also aware of the fact that many minority actors lack the opportunity to participate unless there is a movie about them.

    That’s some good bullshit… Trevor is great most of the time , but when he gets to representation his view is just so skewed.

  • cuterpooter 12 months ago

    “…the luxury of all these roles, AND”. Why, COMEDY CENTRAL, why?
    Other than that, great job as usual Trevor and Daily Show folks.

    The whole discussion is missing the point: as an actor, it is her perfectly good right to play any role that she agrees to and that she can get. The criticism should be aimed at the _casting directors_ and _producers_ who decide on who to *give the role to* . But since average movie goers hardly know that these _exist_ or, if they do, what these people actually DO in a movie production, it is easier to just blame the face that everybody knows.
    A little more differentiation, please.

    Whyd they have a woman playing a trans man though? Idc if the actor’s trans I just want it to be a man.
