From all accounts, Dean Cain is a nice guy.
And he’s of the opinion that it ain’t so nice of Hollywood to attempt to block Georgia’s fetal heartbeat bill via a boycott by exclusively reserving their magnanimous presence for non-Georgia endeavors (here, here, and here).
On Fox & Friends Friday, the Lois & Clark actor sounded off:
“The hubris of Hollywood to say to a sovereign state like Georgia, you guys have to follow our beliefs on abortion, is ridiculous. For Hollywood to tell Georgia voters what their views should be on abortion is a huge mistake, and I think it’s a giant overstep.”
Wow: That’s exactly what I’ve been saying. Here’s my proposed summary of Hollywood’s statement, courtesy of my article on the Baldwin brothers:
Translation: “We’re a small number of people who get paid to stand on taped X’s and say what someone told us to. But our rightful position is to dictate the abortion legislation — which would otherwise be subject to millions of voters — in other peoples’ states, not our own.”
Good call, Dean.
Maybe I’ll see if he wants to get a Coke sometime.
Or RC. His call.
My personal heartbreak, Alyssa Milano, probably won’t be joining us; she’s heading up the boycott (here), aimed at taking away revenue from The Peach State.
But Dean ain’t impressed:
“Those tax incentives that bring in studios, honest to goodness, don’t make a huge fiscal impact on the state. So if people don’t show up to work in Georgia, it’s not going to hurt Georgians very much at all in the pocketbook, and I think it’s a ridiculous thing to go for.”
Dean also questioned whether Alyssa — who recently veered dangerously close to outlawing height (here) — came up with this whole protest idea all by her lonesome:
“I don’t think Alyssa Milano is doing this out of her own volition, I think she’s got somebody behind her, a group behind her, for her to be quoting certain things and creating these protests – I don’t think she’s doing it by herself.”
Dean’s a pretty cool guy. I think I’m gonna get myself a Coke and an RC, and kick back and bingewatch Lois & Clark. And pretend I have the fashion sense of the main characters.
Oh, if only.
