I don't like him. At all. He also got fat.

La Chalamet is on suicide watch.

He's not going to be the star. He'll probably drag his fat, lazy ass to the set to lounge in a chair and get fed grapes by slave girls. And then he'll shoot a few scenes.

R5- And expect unearned praise.

DL's Klan Grannies swooping in to complain that white people can't get hired in Hollywood anymore incoming...

R8 enjoy it while it lasts. There will be a reckoning by the next 2 years. The majority will not put up with it.

by Anonymousreply 9March 17, 2023 4:43 PM

The majority? You do know that the US will be majority "minority" very soon. Some places already are.

It's white people who have to enjoy it while it lasts.

It's funny, though. Their panic at being "replaced" or even "displaced" is based on the assumption they'll be treated as shitty as they treated others.

Isn't he a Republican?

R5 In what world is Denzel lazy?? He’s been nothing but hard working his entire life.

by Anonymousreply 12March 17, 2023 4:51 PM

R10 correct. White people are the minority worldwide, making up less than 10% of the world, which is why they now claim non-whites as white, to boost their numbers.

They fear being treated the way they’ve always treated everyone else.

What is DL’s qualm with Denzel. Let me guess he’s black and a straight actor that doesn’t gay bait. Let me also guess, he shouldn’t won the Oscar in 2001.

I love my life!

Normally, I wouldn't have bothered with the film. But Barry Keoghan was brilliant in The Banshees of Inisherin so it might be worth a look just for him.

by Anonymousreply 16March 18, 2023 6:24 AM

I just remember the way he didn't show up to the Tonys when he wasn't nominated for "Fences" but everyone else was. Couldn't put his ego aside and support his castmates.

R17 who cares? Leo boycotted the Oscars the year he wasn’t nominated for Titanic

R17 who gives a shit? Always looking for some reason to dislike someone. Grow up.

by Anonymousreply 19March 19, 2023 1:38 PM

I'm in.

And if Crowe wasn't so fat and out of shape, they probably would've thrown in a "flash-back" cameo.

I absolutely LOVED "Gladiator", one of the best popcorn movies evah.

I don't mind Denzel Washington. I doubt, however, his role will be one as villain.

by Anonymousreply 20March 19, 2023 1:41 PM

I love how the people who yell at others not to care seem to care about the other person caring.

Who cares what I think? Who gives a shit about your stupid opinion?

by Anonymousreply 21March 19, 2023 2:04 PM

Who will play “Villain”?

by Anonymousreply 22March 19, 2023 2:35 PM

I'm guessing that Keoghan will play a casually cruel, dissolute, effeminate emperor.

by Anonymousreply 23March 19, 2023 2:40 PM

Maybe it flew over my head, but I never got the idea Maximus was Lucius' father, but, this was being discussed on the John Campea youtube show and somebody thought that was inferred in "Gladiator".

Certainly, we're to know that Maximus and Lucilla were former lovers, but, I never got the idea that Maximus was Lucius' father.

Not sure I like that being a potential plot arc in this sequel.

How awful.

Russel Crowe needs to stay far away.

Meh, R11, rather not too keen on gay rights or gay people.

paul mescal as what, the skin care patient

skin cancer patient

by Anonymousreply 29March 19, 2023 3:31 PM

Collider.com says that three other DL obsessions were also up for the lead, but the director chose Paul Mescal instead.

[quote] Other actors who were considered for the role include Richard Madden and Timothée Chalamet, as well as last summer's hot-shot film stars Miles Teller and Austin Butler.

I dislike him for propping up Will Smith after "the slap" that night.

by Anonymousreply 31March 20, 2023 9:23 PM

Will Denzel play a slave? Or will he play an emperor of Rome? "We didn't land on the Coliseum, the Coliseum landed on us!"

by Anonymousreply 32March 22, 2023 9:31 AM

He's another one, like Julia Roberts, whose tired face needs to go away now.
