They could have just cast Rammstein.

Considering some group of adopted people biatched about Loki in the Avengers, this wasn't a big leap.

The wife and I saw it this weekend. It was cool slowly realizing whom each of the dwarves were. Ray Winstone and Nick Frost were a nice surprise.

Maybe next time they make a "The Gamers" movie, they can cast a bunch of 'em for the halfling barbarian hoard...

/though aren't halflings normally proportioned, just tiny?
//maybe that won't work after all

Now this statement I can get behind. Oompah Loompahs make everything better. Imagine if Return of the Jedi had a planet of Oompah Loompahs instead of ewoks.

Am I the only one who is surprised that the term "little people" wasn't immediately found offensive? It's always stuck me as way more condescending and dehumanizing than terms like "dwarf" or "midget".
 
2012-06-05 10:25:51 AM
Sorry, Peter Dinklage was too busy working on something more epic to lend his services to a shabby Snow White remake. He seems to be the only little person working in the biz right now.
 
2012-06-05 10:27:45 AM
Maybe we should just introduce them to the people who are offended by "little people" being exploited because of their condition and let'em fight.
 
2012-06-05 10:28:02 AM
Very short-sighted of them. The little exposure they get from this protest will be short-lived. The other problems in the film dwarf their problem. Fixing them all would be no small task. Even though it is a tall order, they need to grow up. Maybe if they were nicer, they would be on Hollywood's short list of actors for these sorts of small parts.

I love the cinematics of that video. Especially the glass coffin bit at th end, just a very evocative visual.

I call that the PC Circle. In their efforts to bring more civility to our language they start some arbitrary tinkering and end up coming full circle. So the terms they originally objected to are replaced with ones that are no better. Possibly worse.

Handicapped -> Disabled -> Physically Challenged -> Differently Abled

Is "handicapped" really much worse than "differently abled"? The latter makes them sound less than human, IMHO.

No dwarfjobs leads to dwarfpoverty. Dwarfpoverty leads to dwarfanger. And dwarfanger leads to... Duergar.

Dear Dwarfs,

A dwarf is a creature from German/Norse mythology, who lived underground in the mountains and were adepts at mining, smithing, etc. They were not little people. That's just hollywood BS. Tolkien got it right and you didn't seem to have any problem with the "dwarves" in LOTR not being little people. Snow White and the Huntsmen is closer to the original Grimm brothers tale than the stupid Disney kiddie bastardization, which included dwarfs. So what's your beef again?

He's also the only one that openly refuses to do roles like one of Snow White's dwarfs (with the exception of that one Narnia role).

I think LOTR had them, but as "body doubles". None of them had "face time".

Also, aren't the dwarves in Once Upon a Time normal sized, or just "slightly" smaller than a human.

The problem with most dwarfism is that it leaves the victim out of normal human proportions--short legs and arms. Dwarves (and Tolkien's hobbits) are usually described as small but normally proportioned (though dwarves might be slightly wider than normal).
 
2012-06-05 11:03:17 AM
And if they were in the movie they would have been pissed that they were being exploited.

You can't just call yourself a dwarf. A dwarf is a mythical magical creature. There should be a law against calling yourself a dwarf without being in direct possession of a batttleaxe

Totally agree with them. If a little person actor can't get a job playing a little person, they're pretty much screwed.

The bigger issue here is Hollywood's obsession with big-name actors. It's not enough to have a star in the lead role. Now every damned role has to be filled by a star. And so the top actors, who are already wealthy, just keep taking more and more of the pie. They are taking all of the speaking roles away from voice actors (both in films and commercials) and now they're taking roles away from little people. Hey, maybe pretty soon they can grab up all of the child roles as well.

Message to Hollywood: We really won't fall asleep if we see an actor onscreen we've never seen before. We can handle it.
