Ix-nay on the Idget-may

I hope any little person who sees this takes it in the spirit of fun and info-tainment that it was intended. I'm on their side here.

Speaking of little people, have you seen this trailer that's been around for awhile? I haven't seen this movie yet, but it looks interesting.

I wonder about the casting of Gary Oldman, though. Oldman is a kick-ass actor, but you'd think there would be at least one actual little person who could handle that role and save the production company a ton of money in special effects. (If I was a little person actor, I'd be pissed.) UNLESS, this is the actual size of Gary Oldman, and special effects were used in all of his other movies to make him look normal height -- just like they do with Tom Cruise. It's just a theory, but it would explain this odd casting choice.

Well... here in Mexico we only have a word fr them: Enanos. And they don't seem to mind.

And here there has been more famous short-statured actors. There was Tun-Tun, who was praised as a great dancer; and there's also the wrestlers —two of them tragically deceased, BTW.
