what a shnozzDustin Hoffman’s new film is called Stranger Than Fiction. The film, starring Will Ferrell, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Hoffman, Emma Thompson and Queen Latiffah is set to open in theatres this November. It’s already making the rounds at film festivals, even premiering at the most commercial and crass of all schnorr fests, the Toronto International Film Festival.

In advance of its opening, like in all similar Hollywood productions, we will be treated with various slice of life interviews wherein those who appeared in the film, talk about all the whacky hijinks that went on during the production. One such example recently involved actress Emma Thompson discussing the frustration she experienced on her daily script-learning walks with co-star Dustin Hoffman.

“There was no attempt to disguise the fact that he was Dustin Hoffman, which meant that you could get about two feet before somebody, over enthusiastic, would stop us, him rather, and go on and on and on and finish by inviting us for dinner.
“It was quite irritating after a while, actually. And, so, I said, ‘Why don’t you wear a hat (as a disguise), I’ll get you a hat.’ “He said, ‘No, no, then you’d just see my nose, I’d rather be recognised than look like an ageing Jew.'”

I got news for you Dustin bubbeleh. You’re 69 years old. Whether you like it or not, you are an ageing Jew. Deal with it ya altekakker. And, ageing or not, we don’t all have bulbous, prominent noses. Does Abe Foxman know about this?? In other news, the movie actually seems kinda cool and early reviews are good. This would thus be an appropriate opportunity for you all to support the Jew controlled media while still being entertained. And actress Maggie Gyllenhaal is Jewish too so, there ya go.

  • ck, take it easy on Dusty. No need to report the dude to Foxman: he’s been dealing with his Jewish looks his whole life…it was hard for him growing up in LA–he always wanted to be in NY, where it was easier to be Jewish…

    Anyway, I’m really excited to see “Stranger than Fiction.” I’d even see it if there were NO Jews in it. Yes, I’m that worldly.

  • I hope this one is better than the recent release of Meet the Fockers, which after seeing the first two, I loved. I loved Dustin Hoffman in the second one, and he was ok in the third one. Just the whole story line was terrible.

    FYI, love the gif of Dustin up top! That is hysterical!

  • I just look up the trailer on youtube, and yes it does look better… Let me know if anyone sees it, I would love to hear.
