LOL, I love it.
Jack Black is not my favorite dude by ANY stretch of the imagination, but I’m loving the fact that he’s saying what I’m thinking: that Leonardo DiCaprio probably didn’t do the best acting job and that he’s needy and kinda lame.
The Kung Fu Panda star talked to The Fix this week, saying his Kung Fu Panda 3 co-star Bryan Cranston – who was also nominated in the same category as Leo – ‘is a better actor.’ DANG!
“He [Cranston] was never going to win it against Leo DiCap in the Revenant,” Jack said. But while the reporter said “it was Leo’s year,” Jack stood firmly by his friend and co-star Bryan, saying: “Bryan Cranston is a better actor. You heard it here. Bryan Cranston is better [at] acting than Leo DiCap. But, Leo DiCap was like dying a lot, he was like wheezing and coughing blood. That’s Oscar. That’s what you’ve got to do.”
During the chat, Jack also seemed to take another swipe at Leonardo while discussing his 2011 comedy and drama film Bernie. The reporter said Jack should have received an Oscar nomination for the film, which prompted Jack to accuse Leonardo of stealing his ‘spot’.
“Thank you. Why didn’t I get an Oscar nomination for that? Oh you know why, I think Leo DiCap took my spot. Because that was the year he had that really bad movie that got Oscar nominated. What was that, where he like played a president that was kind of bald. Did you see that?”
When the reporter didn’t manage to immediately name Leonardo’s 2011 crime and drama film J.Edgar, Jack answered his own question, and said ‘no one’ saw the film. The reporter then pointed out Leonardo actually didn’t get a nomination for that particular role.
LOL. OBVIOUSLY, Bryan Cranston is a better actor overall- not even just Leo, but just, a really, really good actor. And Black was saying something a lot of Oscar voters were saying –chill, Leo. You got your little golden man.
