Art hits to close to home for Doug Hutchison!

Doug Hutchison, who you might remember as the 51-year-old man who is currently banging 17-year-old Courtney Stodden and absolutely nothing else, was recently offered a role in a movie where he would be play a 51-year-old man who bangs a sixteen-year-old popstar. I know, a total stretch. Give this man all the Oscars! Well, Doug apparently dropped out of the only acting job he could ever hope to have now that everyone knows he’s a pedophile because he was worried that people would start thinking he was some sort of lecherous perv who was tricked into marriage by a derp-faced teenager who wanted attention. The operative word here is “start”. RadarOnline reports:

“I know it’s gonna surprise a lot of people to hear this,” writer/producer/director Richard O’Sullivan said about The Green Mile and Lost actor, “but Doug was legitimately concerned about some of the sexual content and how people might not be able to separate who he is as a person from the character he was playing.”

“Initially, it seemed like perfect casting, playing on the parallels,” O’Sullivan said. “But eventually I think Doug and the character became too intertwined. Doug’s a wonderful guy, a brilliant actor, and a terrific creative collaborator. Ultimately though, they’re not one and the same. The character at points is not nearly as sympathetic and as likeable as Doug, and this is coming from someone who likes Doug a lot.”

Really? You basically wrote Doug into a movie as HIMSELF, and even you can’t pretend that his sticking it to a teenage famewhore isn’t exactly sympathetic? Actually, I think the worst part about all of this is that someone sat down and thought “yes, let’s cast a pedophile in a movie where he bangs a teenage girl and give him money for it!” Nope, that’s totally not enabling a pedophile AT ALL. And just because I haven’t used this word often enough in this post and I really should hammer this point across: PEDOPHILE PEDOPHILE PEDOPHILE.
