Will Marky Mark get his 2nd Oscar nod for playing the father of a murdered gay teen in “Joe Bell”?

I’m shocked he agreed to do this. I remember he said he wouldn’t be able to sleep at night if he accepted the role in Brokeback.

Maybe he has changed.

He's not playing a gay character.

He's not playing a gay character, and the movie involves a murdered gay teen - something which he has to have zero empathy for to play a role. Maybe he even "likes" that story line.

I finally watched The Departed recently and I thought he really overdid it - he was like a Southie PLAYING a Southie. If he'd just relaxed into it more it probably would've seemed less like he was acting all the time. I think he got the Oscar nom because he had the last shot in the film. The Departed was pretty impressive, Leo was great. It was like a really good B-side to Goodfellas.

R38. The victim may have forgiven Marky Mark but we don't and he attacked other non whites as well.

In fact, the courts refused to allow this vile creature to get his record expunged, given the serious nature of his crimes. He fancied himself becoming a reserve officer of LAPD. Not going to happen with a felony record.

If so, it proves how the award has diminished. Now let me recount a sunny summer day in Times Square in the 90s when I noticed a commotion on the other side of Bway. I crossed the street and Mark was already clocking me, and reached out his hand to greet me with a hey buddy greeting. Couldn't have been more friendly, or open. Yet I still hate him.

I'm from the South and the things we read and watched the poor white people of Boston, from that time, say was more racist than anything I'd ever heard. Racially motivated crimes, especially by teenagers, were rampant especially from the 1970s-90s...the time in which he grew up. Also, he was on cocaine by the time he was 13...so we aren't talking about a typical teenager.

I'm willing to accept that his hate crimes were a result of his upbringing...and that now he has risen above his raising. I hope for his sake that is true.
