Editor-at-Large Luke Macy shares his thoughts on comedy actors pivoting to more “serious” films.

A letter to Hollywood: Let your comedians thrive

The bigger problem here is that Hollywood refuses to cultivate comedies. Sure, actors have some semblance of agency for which roles they play, but when the system rarely funds theatrical movies that are exclusively comedies, there’s less of a choice.
