Answer: Robert Downey Jr.
And no, it is not just some sort of in-joke that Downey is playing a black character. In the film, Tropic Thunder (due out this August), Downey plays an actor playing a black soldier in the film-within-a-film. The intent is a satire on actors...not African-Americans.
All that said, what do you think about such a brazen comedic move? Is it too much? Is it an ingenious satiric element? Or is it a non-issue not even worthy of a blog post?
I first saw this photo in an Entertainment Weekly article, and they seemed to think it was worth discussing.
I have an opinion on this...but you give me your thoughts first...
