The Salty Nerds talk about The Whale (2022) and the controversy surrounding Brendan Fraser playing a morbidly obese man when he isn't actually morbidly obese. How much does representation matter when casting a movie? Why does Hollywood hate fate people? Do fat actors lose their talent when they get healthy? We talk about all this and more in this episode of the Salty Nerd Podcast. What do you think of our new format? Do you think Hollywood discriminates against fatties? Did Brendan Fraser deserve the Oscar?
