It's in my nature to want to dump all over a Ben Stiller flick, but good lord I can't dump on TROPIC THUNDER. If the IRON MAN trailers are any indication and early reports on THUNDER are to be believed, God seems to be laying 'em up and Robert Downey Jr. just seems to be knocking them out of the park. Here is your first look at the flick:

Yeah, that is Downey Jr. in the middle. Yeah, the black dude. Here's the rationale (since it makes so much more sense when explained): (he) plays Kirk Lazarus, a very serious Oscar-winning actor cast in the most expensive Vietnam war epic ever filmed. Problem is, Lazarus's character, Sgt. Osiris, was originally written as black. So Lazarus decides to dye his skin and play Osiris, um, authentically. I think that for the first time ever, no comment is necessary. Oh, and the pasty fellow in the rear is Jack Black.
Extra Tidbit: Argh, was looking for that clip of Eddie Murphy pretending to be white. That was golden too.
