the cast members and their characters

There is this trend on Film/Comicbook Twitter where people are actually accusing DCEU fans of being white boy Trump Supporters who are naturally members of the alt right.

Yes really.  For starters there are many DCEU fans of various races, religions, and genders. And I have yet to encounter a single one who supports Trump. Not even the cisgendered heterosexual white guys.

And second, why the fuck would anyone from the alt-right would like the DCEU anyways?  The DCEU has:

A cast of racially diverse actors/actresses who aren’t just sidekicks to the white male lead.

Three iconic characters(Lex Luthor, Barry Allen, Wonder Woman) being played by Jewish actors that I can think of right on top of my head.

Women of all races playing major roles in this universe and are not the disposable girlfriend.  There’s three movies planned that will feature female leads.  One of them is coming out next week.

Hell even the cisgendered white male actors don’t always conform to what many alt right guys are comfortable with.  I can’t imagine Richard Spencer being able to casually make jokes about fucking his male costar the way Ben and Henry did during the BvS promo tour.

And many of the cast members aren’t Trump Supporters either.

Look I get not liking a franchise. There are franchises I don’t care for. But trying to present people who like what you hate as a part of a group that would despise the majority of the actual fanbase is beyond the pale.  Not everyone will hate what you hate. Not everyone will like what you like. Grow the fuck up.

anonymous asked:

Apparently one of the SPN producers had an idea that they should do an episode in which the boys wake up in a strange town where all the people are former cast members. Like "the Trickster is the major, Sebastian runs the local cafe.." J2 both thought it was an awesome idea (as did the audience.) There were also a few mentions during the weekend of the potential for the "alternate universe" thing to bring some characters back (many shouts of "CHARLIE!"). So I think that's on their minds a bit.

So, they got the idea for Lucifer’s baby from Once Upon a Time, and now they want to create their own Once Upon a Time town. I love it. That is fabulous. Gabriel’s the mayor, Balthazar runs the cafe, Ruby’s the waitress in red,  Bobby or Crowley runs the antiques store, Ellen and Jo are the Sheriff and deputy respectively, Rowena is a teacher, who else? Charlie’s there, obviously, but I think the Blue Fairy is a nun in OUAT, and Charlie would so not be down for that, even if constantly surrounded by other women.

Nicknames

I’ve talked about this somewhere else before but can’t help bringing it up again.

So…I’m Chinese but I didn’t know any local musical theater fan community until I started uploading musical related stuff to a Chinese website recently. And the most precious thing in Chinese musical theater fandom turns out to be the really hilarious nicknames they give to actors and characters. Crack me up every time without fail. Here’s a list of everything I’ve seen so far. Will add more when I find new ones.

A ‘Hamilton’ Star Is to Replace Josh Groban in ‘Great Comet’ (NYT) [x]:

[…] Okieriete Onaodowan, who played Hercules Mulligan and James Madison in the original Broadway cast of “Hamilton,” will succeed the pop singer Josh Groban as Pierre this summer in the musical “Natasha, Pierre & the Great Comet of 1812.”

The casting choice is striking. It reflects a bet by Broadway that “Hamilton” alumni have ongoing, bankable box-office appeal (another member of the original “Hamilton” cast, Phillipa Soo, will star in an adaptation of “Amélie” opening in April). And it is the rare instance in which two black actors are leading the cast of a show that is not about black characters: Mr. Onaodowan will star opposite Denée Benton as Natasha.

Mr. Onaodowan, a son of Nigerian immigrants who was raised in New Jersey and took up acting when an injury ended his high school football career, will assume the role on July 3, the day after Mr. Groban’s departure, and has committed to staying until Sept. 4. The musical, set in 19th-century Russia, is adapted from a section of “War and Peace” in which Pierre is a wealthy but dejected member of the Moscow elite. […]

Marco is a Trans Girl - The Megapost 2.0

So you’ve likely seen my big post on the theory that Marco Diaz from Star vs The Forces of Evil is a Trans Girl. It was made back in July of 2016 when Season 2 was just starting, and since then a lot of things have changed and we now know a lot more about what’s going on behind the scenes.

This post is meant to be an updated explanation of Trans Girl Marco theory, but now more in line with how things are actually happening. The gist of it being that Marco Diaz is coded as a closeted transgender girl.  Expect less theorizing and more meta talk. I’ll be going over all the clues that indicate Marco is trans, as well as how the starcrew came to the desicion as Marco developed as a character.

I can’t give enough thanks to the members of the crew such as @arythusa and @hug-bees​, whom have both done as much as they possibly can to communicate with the show’s growing LGBT fanbase, and given us so much insight into what’s going on

Full post below the cut.

my dudes

my buddies

my pals

Let’s be real for a second in terms of like where this show is headed with regards to my favorite character (surprise it’s Lance jk no one is surprised)

Recently this tweet happened:

And some people are taking this really well and other people… not so much. Which makes sense since all of us have been like #thirstin for something more for Lance and have been met with a lotta nothing, but I think this tweet is actually a good thing.

So in this recent interview with Kimberly, Josh, and Jeremy, Jeremy basically says what he’s been saying since day 1 that’s been echoed by a lot of the other cast members and crew.

Basically: Lance will step up to the plate and he’ll become more of a leader and take on more responsibility but at the end of the day…

Lance.

Is.

Lance.

And when people ask for more about Lance in terms of his character, you don’t really hear much beyond this, which is exTRemEly frustrating but just hear me out.

It might not be this deep but I think it’d be cool if there’s a reason for the Voltron team being so adamant in the fact that “Lance is Lance.” And he will always be no matter what. This can go one of two ways.

1. Lance is Lance because he will always only be comic relief. 6 seasons of comic relief. That’s him. He’s Lance. A flirt. Cocky. Goofy. Sure he might have some moments like we’ve seen in S1 and S2 but for the most part he’s there to be the team goofball to make everyone laugh (or groan with frustration and annoyance)

Which is shitty and terrible and I will be so angry if this is what goes down but for now let’s move onto the MUCH BETTER option 2.

2. Lance does become a leader (maybe a co-leader? Right hand man? stays the Blue Paladin and just kinda steps up more? whatever) but no matter how tough things get, no matter how worn down the team is, no matter how hopeless the situation seems, Lance can still be Lance. And I don’t just mean he’s able to crack a joke at a tense time to lighten the mood, though that also is a part of it. I mean that he is able to keep a level head and calmly think things through even in chaotic or near impossible situations

That he is always concerned about the well-being of other and is willing to lay down his life for his friends (AKA PEOPLE HE JUST MET)

That he’s also not afraid to call out these friends when he thinks they are making a mistake (there seems to be a running theme with this one…..)

That he’s also appreciative of his friends and pays attention to their needs/wants and their strengths

And that he will always go down swinging

But maybe most importantly, and this is what I hope the Voltron team is trying to get at, Lance will never lose his joy and excitement and happy go-lucky demeanor. This is what makes him the Blue Paladin (and also why I think he would make a great Black Paladin but anyways….). He’s the glue of the team and this means more than just being the comic relief and making ill-timed jokes.

I really love the Lance that is able to start a weird space spore fight or wants to knit sweaters for Arusians. I love the Lance that enjoys doing a crazy dance while explaining their extremely dangerous plan to defeat Zarkon. I love the Lance that has fun coming up with wild ideas about what else could be locked up in Beta Traz. It’s not that he’s not taking his job as a Paladin seriously but rather that he is trying to take this crazy situation in stride as much as possible. We know that he can be worried, insecure, and lonely, but this never stops him from being who he is. He stumbles, loses confidence, regains it, and stands back up again ready to start swinging at the next asshole who decides to come for him and his friends.

Lance is adaptable just like water. He might come in different forms (serious, competitive, caring, homesick, flirtatious, etc) but at the end of the day it’s all of it is a part of who he is. He might need to get better at figuring out the appropriate timing of being leader Lance or flirty Lance, but it’s not like he has to lose the more immature part of him to become a more well-developed character.

So when people say “Lance will always be Lance,” I’m actually pretty fucking thankful. I’ve read some Langst where Lance becomes more “Keith-like” to cope with his insecurities which……. I’m conflicted about. I don’t think he needs to go as far as NOT be him in order for the team to learn to appreciate him more. So I think this affirmation from the staff that Lance will always be himself no matter what makes me believe that he will be what keeps the team together through the difficult and tumultuous times to come. That even despite his clear self-doubt he will be able to put the team and others first and maintain his role as the glue. That he will still manage to grow and change as a Paladin AND maintain the things that make him Lance.

There will be growing pains, of course, (I’m guessing a lot to do with Keith) but just because he’s insecure doesn’t make him weak. Lance doesn’t have to become more serious or stoic in order to be taken more seriously or be more “mature.” Then he wouldn’t be the Lance we know and love. He can withstand the challenges to come and develop as a character without sacrificing these integral parts of himself. He is capable of SO MUCH and I can’t wait for him to unlock the potential that was always there within him and makes him who he is.

anonymous asked:

Doesn't it get a little boring and repetitive to make every single character in every single musical gay for each other? Jeremy literally sings a whole song about how much he wants to date Christine, joins the drama club to get close to Christine, and gets a squid JUST so he could learn how to be cool so Christine would like him. I don't know but making characters that are canonically straight gay is weird to me??

alright, so i initially was just going to delete this ask or just block the person who sent it as i normally do whenever i get messages with underlying homophobia, but i’ve had a rough start today and it wouldn’t sit right with me if i didn’t say anything about this.

let me start off by saying that, no. it doesn’t get boring and repetitive. at all. and regardless of your intent behind the question (asking out of curiosity or to needle in), i’m offended by that question. as a queer person, hearing someone word it in a way that suggests that my life and the way i experience/feel things and that reflecting that onto a character is boring is genuinely one of the most hurtful things i’ve had said to me. the lack of queer representation in media is what’s boring and repetitive -  it’s for that exact reason that we (queer content creators) have to make our own queer representation for ourselves. it’s both exhausting and comforting, because a degree of control there.

straight erasure is not a thing. you have hundreds, thousands, millions of straight characters to pick and choose from - LGBT people only have a specific window of characters to relate to, and even then, a large majority of them are either tossed under the bus, written with their identity as comic relief, killed, or just plain terribly written (that being said, rich canonically being bi did genuinely make me tear up because i was so ecstatic over it). we don’t have a huge pool to choose from like straight people do, and a lot of us come from places where our identities are a source of conflict in our environment, and many of us find comfort in normalizing what we feel through characters.

you can headcanon a straight character’s sexuality as being gay. or bi. or lesbian, pan, demi, etc, etc - literally anything other than straight, because we don’t have a lot to choose from. you absolutely cannot, however, headcanon a queer character as straight, because that’s queer erasure - you’re erasing a subtype that already has next to nothing for it, and it’s homophobic. it’s a terrible thing to do. we’re not hurting anyone with our headcanons or content in the slightest. what we’re doing is enjoying ourselves freely and tossing in our own views and experiences, and it’s incredibly comforting to be a part of a community that’s so overly positive with it all.

as an addition to that - i feel like you’re misinterpreting this. you are aware that there are sexualities other than straight and gay, right? this is a part of the problem, too - people insisting that a character can’t be queer because of canonical attraction someone of the opposite gender.  you can be attracted to members of more than one gender. being queer is a spectrum, and people land all over the place on it.

that being said, part of what bugs me the most is your reaction to this. the cast and creators of B/M/C themselves have responded no less than wildly enthusiastic about the feeling and views people put behind the characters- and have stated as such. you have an issue with this while they don’t, and that makes me uncomfortable.

because the issue that you have right here? people headcanoning a character as queer and making content that’s harming literally no one, and you being hung-up on that because it messes with you viewing the character as straight?

that’s called homophobia, my guy. don’t know how else to break it to you.

Brooklyn Nine-Nine to take on racial profiling with stop-and-frisk episode

Brooklyn Nine-Nine tends to take a light-hearted approach when it comes to the long arm of the law: After all, it’s a comedy in which Andy Samberg effuses lines like “Don’t worry, we can outsmart some small-town sheriff. We’re NYPD detectives. We caught the Son of Sam! Ice-T plays us on TV! We keep the Tonys safe!” But an upcoming episode is aiming to mine humor in a serious topic involving the police: Racial profiling via the controversial stop-and-frisk program, in which officers temporarily detain and search citizens for concealed weapons and illegal goods.

In an episode airing May 2 on Fox, Terry (Terry Crews) — a sergeant in the Nine-Nine — is subjected to a stop-and-frisk (which, coincidentally, is also known as a “Terry stop“) by an officer when he’s on the street looking for his daughter’s blankie. “He tries to work it out with the cop by going out to dinner with him, but that doesn’t work out, and he has to decide whether or not to file a formal complaint,” series co-creator Dan Goor tells EW. “To a certain extent, it’s the question of: Am I blue or am I black?”

It’s a subject matter that the show’s writers have been wanting to tackle for a long time, but “because our heroes are the police, it’s difficult to talk about the police in an abstract way,” says Goor. “We’ve talked about a million different stories and I think this one really works. It felt very natural and real, but at the same time, we’ve managed to make it as funny as any other Brooklyn Nine-Nine episode.”

The idea for the story stemmed from a conversation with Crews, who revealed a similar incident in which he had been racially profiled. The writers began working on an episode but were having trouble around the halfway mark. It was a conversation about the episode with a different cast member — Andre Braugher, a.k.a. Captain Holt — that led to a breakthrough moment. “Andre told me what he thought Captain Holt would do at that moment,” says Goor. “And it was like the clouds parted and I could see for the first time. It was so unexpected, but true to the character and honest, and made for an entire act’s worth of scenes.”

In the episode, after Terry hashes it out with other members of the Nine-Nine, “ultimately it comes down to a great set of scenes between Holt and [Terry],” says Goor. “It’s Andre at the height of Andre and Terry really keeps up with him. And it’s the first time we’ve done an A story for anyone other than Jake.”

Speaking of Jake (Samberg), he and Amy (Melissa Fumero) will spend most of the episode taking care of Terry’s twins with Sharon (Merrin Dungey) out of town. “They want to know why their dad was arrested, so Jake and Amy have to talk about these issues with these kids,” says Goor. “It’s one of the funniest stories we’ve done.”

  • Type 7: I will harass other creators that ship the ship I hate.
  • If you apply to types 4-7 you need to get a reality check. This is a fictional show with fictional characters. Stop. Make the VLD fandom a better place.

Kakihara Tetsuya: “The current me would not exist if I had not met Natsu.”

“I’ve always been blessed with roles. The first TV anime I had the leading role in was Gurren Lagann, a robot anime. Gekidan☆Shinkansen’s Nakashima Kazuki-san, who was responsible for the composition of the series, taught me many important things about acting, just like if I were standing on stage. The next project I had the lead role in was Fairy Tail.

Fairy Tail, the guild that Natsu belongs to, is one where the members share a strong sense of fellowship and have bonds like that of a family. The cast playing these characters are also from the same generation, and are talented people capable of taking up lead roles. Meeting friends like these were vital in helping me build up the core of my acting.”

Kakihara voices Natsu of Fairy Tail. He was reading the manga when he auditioned about 8 years ago, but Natsu’s voice did not come to mind. When he entered the room where the auditions were being held, and greeted everyone with “good morning” using his natural voice, a commotion arose among the judges. He thought that he would be asked to continue with his audition, but his audition for the role of Gray was declined with “It’s fine (you don’t have to do it)”. Some time later, his agency informed him that he would be voicing Natsu, and he later learned that it was because all the judges thought “Natsu is here” the moment he said “good morning” upon entering the room.

“If I hadn’t been chosen with my natural voice to voice Natsu, I wouldn’t have had the experience of challenging things with my natural voice, and might have become an actor who can only put on a show by acting cool. I’ve gained many things because I met Natsu, and I have strong feelings about walking together with him these 8 years. The present Kakihara Tetsuya might not exist if I had not met Natsu. Mashima-sensei’s Natsu is gradually becoming an attractive man, and I have to keep up.”

I’m just so glad that Matthew daddario is like just an unproblematic guy like he’s just weird and funny and talks about plants or pumpkins or candy and he talks about the character he plays like he’s his friend and I’m just glad that it’s him who ended up as the most popular cast member because you can’t even be mad about it he just does his thing he’s not hurting anybody he’s just good and stays in his lane

“when we rise” is a genuinely good tv show that addresses queer history, and includes transgender cast members playing transgender characters, and gets into intersection of identities like race and queerness, and advocates for different sub-groups of the queer umbrella to, while addressing specific issues facing certain groups and working on issues within said umbrella, still work together for larger goals

watch “when we rise,” start to learn our history. you need to know this. it’s on abc for the next two nights, and i’m sure u can all find the first few episodes somewhere, too. seriously, it’s worth your time.

10 ‘Huge’ Spoilers from US Weekly
  1. That baby is definitely coming. “We will see a baby” King said. “That story line is really one of the most out there story lines we’ve done”
  2. But also: The baby story line will blow your freakin’ mind. ‘Remember how King said in the paragraph above that the story line is “out there”? Let’s just say you should take her word on that.’
  3.  Toby is dead — or is he? Keegan Allen assured Us that Toby dies in that car crash at the end of the first half of season 7. But we’re going to go out on a limb and assume he’s pulling our leg.
  4. However, two major characters will indeed kick the bucket. King might have dreaded the idea of calling Allen to tell him his character is dead, but she did have to make that call to at least two — and possibly three! — cast members who play popular characters that get killed off in 7B. 
  5. A.D. is definitely not who you think it is. Tyler Blackburn claims about A.D., “You’ve never met them.” Say what?! He then clarifies, “You kind of have. When you see it, you’ll understand what I’m saying.”
  6. Wedding bells for Haleb? There will definitely be two weddings in 7B — one happens earlier in the season, and the other takes place during the finale. Benson says that Haleb will “100 percent” have a happy ending at the end of the series.
  7. Emison forever — right? Shay Mitchell (Emily) admits that it “would be satisfying” for Em and Alison to end up together, but she also thinks it would be fine if her character remained single.
  8. Say goodbye to Ms. Nice Mona. “She will definitely be in the thick of things — she’s going to try to help the Liars figure out what’s going on and solve the puzzle of who is A.D.,“ the actress says of her character. "You might see a little of darker Mona come back.”
  9. Ezria will always be Ezria. Ian Harding (Ezra) says that the pair will have a “rocky road” in 7B, but he also reveals that his character and Aria (Lucy Hale) will be getting quite hot and bothered at some point. He says of one upcoming 7B scene, “It will be the sexiest in history. I read it, and I was like, ‘Are we on HBO?’ But no, we’re on Freeform, also known as Freebase.” He adds that the same episode has a particularly gory scene, and when he read it, he thought, “There’s no way that’ll pass because it’s so bloody.”
  10. That finale will give you what you want. Except when it doesn’t. King is confident that the finale will give you what you want — but not necessarily what you think you want. “I’ve realized with the Mona reveal and the Toby surprise and the Charlotte reveal, there’s this fine line — hopefully I’ve learned from all of those — but there’s a fine line of people wanting to be surprised, yet not totally, completely surprised,” the producer tells Us.“They want to be a little bit right,” King continues about the show’s fans. “Somebody said recently, 'You always do the twist on the twist — that’s what makes your show different.’ This one has, I think, the biggest twist-on-the-twist we’ve ever done.”
