Son Of A B!^%$, Michael Bay Is Right About Something

This week has been about a lot of words flying back and forth and no I’m not talking about the presidential debate. Get real people, let’s talk about something that matters. I’m talking about the words of Hugo Weaving complaining about his previous roles as Red Skull and the voice of Megatron in Transformers. With Red Skull Weaving mostly just voiced that he’s just not really into that type of movie and wants to make ones he’s more personally associated with…you mean like Agent Smith of the Matrix triology or Elrond of LOTR. I’m sorry Hugo, but this is what you are and how are seen in the acting world. And guess what?! You’re fucking good at it bro. That’s the definition of a wheelhouse if you ask me, almost as much as mine is drinking and owning in Halo in late hours of the night. Let’s get to these words though from Hugo about TF:

“That’s a weird job for me because it honestly was a two-hour voice job, initially. I was doing a play and I actually didn’t have time, anyway. It was one of the only things I’ve ever done where I had no knowledge of it, I didn’t care about it, I didn’t think about it. They wanted me to do it. In one way, I regret that bit. I don’t regret doing it, but I very rarely do something if it’s meaningless. It was meaningless to me, honestly. I don’t mean that in any nasty way. I did it. It was a two-hour voice job, while I was doing other things.”

Mr. Bay, do you have something to say in return with no regard for knowing that everyone will see it?

“Do you ever get sick of actors that make $15 million a picture, or even $200,000 for voiceover work that took a brisk one hour and 43 minutes to complete, and then complain about their jobs? With all the problems facing our world today, do these grumbling thespians really think people reading the news actually care about trivial complaints that their job wasn’t “artistic enough” or “fulfilling enough”? I guess The Hollywood Reporter thinks so.

What happened to people who had integrity, who did a job, got paid for their hard work, and just smiled afterward? Be happy you even have a job – let alone a job that pays you more than 98% of the people in America.

I have a wonderful idea for all those whiners: They can give their “unhappy job money” to a wonderful Elephant Rescue. It’s the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Africa. I will match the funds they donate.”

And god dammit Bay is right here people. He said what needed to be said about over paid actors bitching about THEIR JOB! I’m sorry that you took the job and knew what it was to get some money. A job that means so much to countless numbers of fanboys and fangirls. If you don’t care about the role then don’t do it and move to something else like Happy Feet 3. Yea he did the first two. Ungrateful mothaf!@#$!.

    As an actor, I must disagree. This article only reinforces the belief that Michael Bay is an AIDs ridden assclown who has oral sex with half-starved homeless babies daily in order to pay tribute to the Dark Ones who grant him the power to produce shitty movies and gobble up dollar bills into his gaping maw of a soft-penis suckling mouth, all the while relinquishing any sense of taste, refinement, culture, or love in any of his work.

    No disrespect, Davis. He’s like Wormtongue in a way, only with less dignity.

    I’m not an actress but I have done my share of artistic work. If someone is looking for artistic fulfillment in Hollywood, they either need to get the fuck out (because they will never get final say) or become the directors themselves. That is the only way anyone will have any control over that aspect of their career. As much as MB’s directing is shitty, and being in his film would probably be an embarrassment, this guy had a choice to take this on. He obviously *note sarcasm* wasted 2 hours of his life for the 200,000…more than most people make in a year. This guy is a whiney bitch. God forbid you waste 2 hours of your life feeling unfulfilled while making bank. It must be so tough. Michael Bay might be a god awful director but I’m glad he has the balls to call out his cast when they’re being whiney little twats.

    Damn, Michael Bay has completely redeemed himself. He said everything I was thinking. Weaving has made enough money now that he could do Shakespeare in the park for the rest of his life if he wants to. I love how Bay pwned him with the charity donations. As a peace offering, Mr. Bay, I give you my consent to shit on the TMNT franchise. I will not watch it but go to town!

    I agree Bay is awful,but if Weaving didn’t want to do it then don’t do it. He wasn’t under contract and it was only for 200k which is nothing to him so just let someone else do it that will own and appreciate their own work. That’s all. I will say you did comprose quite the paragraph there haha.
