The film has also garnered some "straightwash" pushback — the accusation that the movie diluted its gay source material to make itself more palatable to straight audiences — as the conversation about this film falling into a Hollywood trend of preferring to cast straight actors in prominent LGB roles is slowly gaining momentum. This is a new manifestation of an old story — critically-lauded LGB-themed films of past few years like Moonlight and Carol also starred straight actors. To convince Hollywood executives and casting directors that LGB-themed films with LGB actors playing LGB roles can be critically and commercially successful across wide audiences, entertainment insiders and consumers alike can use their money, influence and social media platforms to support, promote, and elevate LGB-inclusive content, while using those same resources to push back against content they find exclusionary.

Was really excited for JungleCruise but hearing that jackwhitehall will be doing the usual straight-man-plays-camp-gay-man act has put me off big time. To be queer is NOT a punchline. Obviously Hollywood has run out of gay actors!
