Esteemed Hollywood actor Brandon T. Jackson says almighty God has forgiven him for playing a gay character in Ben Stiller’s 2008 cinematic masterpiece Tropic Thunder.
35-year-old Jackson, whose other film credits include Izzy Gets the F*ck Across Town and the upcoming Big Momma’s House 4, played Alpa Chino, a closeted actor who accidentally revealed feelings a man named Lance, in the 2008 basic bro movie.
Since 2008, however, Jackson has undergone a religious transformation and become a devout Black Hebrew Israelite, and playing a gay character goes against his new ultra conservative religious beliefs.
“I was on thin ice then with the father,” Jackson tells TMZ. “But he had his mercy and his grace was there.”
Jackson says the bigger issue is when he wore a women’s dress for his role in the 2011 Martin Lawrence flick, “Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son.” Jackson says he broke a religious law prohibiting men from wearing women’s clothing — “And, when you break a law you get punished.”
So he changed course. And now that everything’s good with the man upstairs, “My life is great, 4 kids. Loving life. So, all praise to the father.”
He sure doesn’t have any problem taking $ for playing these parts. Oh and Black Hebrew Israelites are a joke. All you’ll see is hate for the white man at that.
What a tool.
AN OLD STORY
They lose their looks and they get religion
So sad how religion can really bring out the ignorance in people. I find it hilarious that someone can believe that the creator of the entire universe would take time out of his busy schedule to curse a guy for wearing a dress in a movie. Mr. Jackson, your life wasn’t cursed because you wore a dress. It was most likely “cursed” because you made some bad decisions. And your career may have been “cursed” because….well….maybe you’re not that talented.
But go ahead and believe your life was cursed because you put on a dress and played a gay character if it makes you feel better about yourself, Boo Boo.
PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS
“esteemed actor” ???? A two bit second banana at best…
And no, you vile noxious pig puke, God has not “forgiven” you. But rather procured your passage to Hell once you burn your vile mortal coil for casting hatred and bigotry against a fellow minority ..
Somebody is a media whore!
Just another closeted queen with baggage.
Apparently, God also made him an asshole.
WHO???? seriously WHO????
God won’t forgive him for his stupidity nor that awful film.
I almost never comment on Queerty, but I just had to log in to say…
SO my take-away is that CAA is somehow a bloodline covenant. Did I get that right?
I think that its just wonderful that God is so accommodating to these self-important people !
Another idiot. If you believe in (a) god you can know that ALL are loved
Religion makes people say and do some truly crazy stuff.
Sounds like he just joined the Jewish version of the NOI.
More a Christian version of NOI. That group believes in Jesus as the son of God, so they are not Jewish in any way.
Although there are black Jews, and black synagogues in some neighborhoods (the black Jews i know are in mixed congregations), Black Hebrew Israelites is not recognized as being a part of Judaism by any actual Jewish groups.
And since his god is responsible for his “oh so wonderful life”, who’s he going to blame when is “oh so wonderful life” goes to crap.
Probably “the gays.” :-/
I don’t even remember his character from Tropic Thunder.
It’s unfortunate that Jackson would believe in a God who specifically targets wearing women’s clothing as the one unforgivable offense, a God who judges and would stop loving you if you fail to live up to every word of a religious text. I don’t know exactly where he is “esteemed,” but best wishes to him in his warped and false ideology.
I’ve never understood how ultra religious nuts focus on GLBTQ but don’t seem to care about people getting killed.
