Question: What do you call a Hollywood actor who criticizes La-La Land supporters of Fidel Castro (ie the 95 percenters)?
“[Steven] Spielberg went down there recently and said, ‘The best seven hours I ever spent was actually with Fidel Castro.’ Now, what I want to ask him, … ‘Would you consider building a little annex on the Holocaust museum, or at least across the street, to honor the dead Cubans that Castro killed?’ That’s very presumptuous of him to go there,” Duvall told Charlie Rose, according to excerpts of the interview released by CBS.
Robert Duvall has stones, there’s no doubt about that. He has previously taken on projects that mainstream Hollywood didn’t want to touch, and is one of the few conservatives who still holds a job out there. I think it would be nice to see more conservative Hollywood players become vocal about politics (but not in a whiny Tim Robbins or angry bitch Jeaneane Garafalo fashion).
