Bryan Cranston, Edward Norton, Mark Ruffalo call for inclusion for actors with disabilities https://t.co/E9mXFlJYr3— Variety (@Variety) December 19, 2019
There's an open letter by the Ruderman Family Foundation calling on Hollywood executives to audition and hire people with disabilities.
The article makes a big deal out of mentioning Edward Norton (Whose latest film could, apparently, have starred a disabled actor, but instead stars Norton himself), Bryan Cranston ("The Upside") and Mark Ruffalo.
“Despite its immense potential for leadership in inclusion, social justice and civil rights, Hollywood has for far too long left disability out of the conversation about diversity,” Jay Ruderman, president of the Ruderman Family Foundation, said.
(AKA: Hollywood is all talk and no action)
The Ruderman foundation has began certifying movies and shows with a seal of approval for authentic reprsentation.
Other signers include Orlando Jones, Danny DeVito, Glenn Close, Norman Lear, & Peter Farrelly (One of the clowns who brought us "Green Book").
A) I thought we had a social issues tag
B) I spent this entire write up going "Don't say it, don't say it, don't say it" when I read Ruffalo's involvement.
