On the perils of playing a capitalist…

Grant Bowler makes a great point in this clip, around 2:35, that in today's Hollywood its perfectly okay to play a psychopath or a child molester and nobody bats an eyelid. But play a capitalist … ("my god, what were you thinking!”) … and you're virtually blackballed.

Is this why the New Zealand actor is getting no love back here in EnZed for his starring role in Atlas Shrugged:Part 1?


  1. He's probably off Robyn malcoms christmas card list at least :)

  2. Fuck you mean there is an actor who doesn't go home believing he inhabits the artificial worlds he portrays? And he has a proper accent. He's doomed.

  3. If Atlas gets a showing here there needs to be a fuss made about Bowlers role to see if a stir can be generated and by default some interest in the film amongst potential viewers...;-)
