Stacks?! No, no, no, no. Daddy Warbucks or nothing. And why isn’t Jamie Foxx bald?
I know there’s been a lot of people flipping out about characters being cast with non-white actors. Couldn’t care less, really - as long as the actors are good, I don’t care who’s cast. But, goddamnit, Annie was adopted by a bald, eyeless war profiteer who all but masturbated on FDR’s grave when he died! That’s half the magic!
Pffft, not in the musical. In the musical, they lick FDR’s taint like it’s made of strawberries. So long as this movie loves that socialist Obama, it’s staying 100% true!
The fact his name is “Stacks” is 1000% the best thing in this trailer.
His name is BENJAMIN Stacks.
Make that 9000%.
I DIDN’T EVEN THINK ABOUT THAT!
IT IS HIS NAME AND WHAT HE IS ALL ABOUT.
