Hardly Harvey: Brazilian whacks 'Milk' job

by Jeremy Hooper

Marcus-RibeiroVariety is reporting that an actor who was charged with dubbing Sean Penn's voice for the Brazilian version of Milk has decided not to do so. Three guesses as to why:

Marco Ribeiro, who dubbed Penn in "21 Grams" and "All the King's Men," isn't just a local film voice. As a pastor, he's also the voice of the conservative protestant God's Assembly Church in Rio.

And that posed a conflict.

"I did not feel comfortable with the job," the 38-year-old Ribeiro told local press. "My voice is involved with other causes, and for the same reason I have refused to work on certain types of advertising."

Fair enough. He has every right to abstain, regardless of the reason. And in this world economy, it'll surely be easier for producers to find a replacement than it was to find a pornstache in the Castro circa 1977.

Frankly we're just happy that Brazilian gays won't have to have their Harvey filtered through someone who stands against everything that the slain gay rights leader backed. That would hurt more than the waxing that bears this particular country's name.

**Note: It turns out that a man named Alexandre Moreno replaced Mr. Ribeiro.
