"Hey, Peele? You ain't shiat, man!"

And you know what the difference is? Sir Patrick Stewart didn't feel the role was beneath him because he doesn't take himself soooooo seriously and I'm sure intended to have a bit of fun with it and didn't cry like a biatch and decide retire from acting and then make a big farking deal about it while getting some shiat-tier industry award

I thought highly of Jordan Peele for his film Get Out, but reading this article, I could care less about him

When Patrick Stewart decided to pull the stick out of his ass and have some fun with the roles he would accept, I liked him about 20% more.

I can understand Peele's reaction, and if it made him want to make good films I'm glad.  However, I like working actors in the same way I like working musicians.  They're artists, but the activity comes first.  Sure, they likely are doing it to get paid, but that's fine.  Good actors improve everything they are in.  Max von Sydow made Strange Brew.  His little bit in Conan was also great.  I can still remember his raging hiss of "She is to be his?!?!!" when ranting about Thulsa Doom mesmerizing his daughter.

I've always wondered how much of his performance in Jeffrey was based on Ian McKellen. They weren't close friends at the time but they did know each other and it seems at times like he's perfectly emulating many of Sir Ian's mannerisms

Stewart has earned the privilege of not giving a shiat. His career is basically bullet proof at this point. Peele has yet to prove himself a reliable, bankable Hollywood talent (despite his success, most of his name recognition stems from his career in TV sketch comedy) and it's easy for one or two terrible films to destroy a promising career.

He was absolutely right to pass on that.

I hear you.  Becky at school went with Rob and I thought she was the best.  Then she wore white after Labor Day and now she's the worst.  I could care like 8 less about her.

OK, Pumpkin. Sorry to interrupt your carefree lighthearted anonymous yelling at the ungrateful Oscar nominee who disrespected you. He'll be sorry, too, I'm sure.

Sir Stewart is in a "fark it" phase. He'll do anything that sounds crazy in his voice. Peele probably still feels the need for some dignity.

Peele is still closer to the start of his Hollywood career than end of it. Discretion is a necessity for him.

Geez. You ok there champ? He got offered a role he didn't want and it was the kick in the ass he needed to take his career in a different direction. Clearly it worked out, because his first filmmaking effort has earned him three Oscar nominations and a DGA director award (a major guild award, not a shiat-tier one). Nobody is insulting Patrick Stewart, who does goofy stuff all the time because he's a respected actor known for lending an air of gravitas to absurd roles.

Do you seriously think he should have taken the voice of the poop in the Emoji Movie instead of writing/directing/producing an acclaimed, Oscar-nominated film?

Snapper Carr: He was absolutely right to pass on that.


Passing on it is one thing, getting in front of a bunch of people and blaming being offered that role for your decision to "retire" from acting is another

And really, Stewart was a much better fit for the role anyway. He has a familiar and immediately identifiable voice which would have held up against the poop character, which Peele simply does not have

Yeah... maybe you missed the part where I was calling him out for pulling his whiny biatch-ass cry baby shiat in front of his peers blaming that role for his reason to retire, and even stating I thought he made a great movie but now se him as a whiny ass biatch

I know, maybe I've not made it clear -- so let me drill it home for you one ore time -- I thought he made a great film and thought highly of him, but now seeing as how he decided to be a whiny ass biatch while receiving a minor industry award I think very lowly of him

Let's see if he can follow up with another movie anywhere as good as Get Out, my money is on no
In fact, I hope Ashton Kutcher revives Punk'd and gets some Studio Exec to ask Peele to direct the Emoji Poop Movie, the entire poop emoji origins story. I'd like to see silent anger in his eyes as tears flow down his whiny ass biatch face

You know, you seem to be a little more involved in wanting Peele to be humiliated than seems... likely?  rational?  What's up with that?  I thought what he said was completely reasonable.  The parts he was being offered were ridiculously bad, so he decided to make movies instead.  He didn't seem whiny, but exasperated.  Good for him.

He's not being a whiny biatch ass. He's telling an anecdote about the circumstances that led him to make the movie that he was being awarded for. Oh, the horror. He told a group that he was offered The Emoji Movie but didn't want to do it so he made a different movie instead. And now he's getting an award for that movie. Get a grip, girl.

I had the gray honor of attending a conference with voice great Tress MacNeille.

Her opinion on crummy or forgettable jobs? Take the paycheck. Always be working. Crummy roles are quickly forgotten.

She firmly believes she should take the jobs, do her very best and move on.

After hearing her, my respect went through the roof. Amazing work ethic.

Nah. Jordan Peele is still early in his Hollywood career. Would he seriously want to be the black guy who played the poop emoji? Hell no.

Patrick Stewart is so well established he can afford to take whatever the fark role he wants. The juxtaposition of a former Royal Shakespeare Company actor and poop emoji was the right call.

There's passing on a role, and then there's whining about it and giving up acting completely. One is something that happens all the time, the other is the act of a prima donna.

Well, yeah, he gave up acting.  But he didn't quit Hollywood entirely and go live on a farm somewhere or something.  He just switched his focus from working on other people's movies to working on his own.

He didn't leave the industry, he transitioned to a different role in the industry, and shared the story of what motivated him to make that transition while accepting an award for the work he did as a result of it.  Doesn't seem prima donna behavior to me.
