I’m sure it’s just a publicity stunt since his story is soooooo over (and now he needs a lot of good PR for his new stint at FOX Sports and his gig on the next “Dancing With the Stars”), but check out who Brenda Warner wants to play her grocery-bagboy-turned-starting-NFL-quarterback hubby in a planned bio-flick on Kurt Warner:
Note the Uncanny Resemblance
He has met with producers interested in doing a movie on his life story. If Brenda had her way, Warner said, Denzel Washington would land the lead role.
“It would probably challenge Denzel in ways he’s never been challenged before,” Warner mused.
Washington is a great actor, but this is just dumb. What are they gonna call it–“Down Wit’ Dat, My Bruthah: The Kurt Warner Story, Exuberant Suntan Edition”? I’m always annoyed at the pretentiousness of people like Brenda Warner who want to show the world how “enlightened” and non-racist they are by insisting that someone Black should play someone White and vice versa in the most absurd of examples. That’s what’s going on here. And it’s phony. The kowtowing to liberals and political correctness stretches the bounds of the ludicrous.
See, she has it all wrong. And not because of race. Brenda Warner wants to play herself in the movie, and maybe she has a thing for Denzel Washington. But if she was really smart about this, she’d know that Denzel should play Brenda Warner. And if we’re really gonna keep it real on this, Whoopi Goldberg would be cast as Kurt Warner.
You know, just to be down with the struggle. And Whoopi is struggling with a lot of things, least among them is race, if ya know what I mean (not that there’s anything wrong with that).
