Hater Playing YKTTW Discussion
Actors in the role of someone who'd hate their race/religion/sexuality/whatever
A Casting Trope. An actor belonging to group X playing a character who hates X. Can be divided into several groups:
- Jews playing Nazis. (There must be a lot of examples around.)
- Homosexuals playing people who hate gays. (Neil Patrick Harris, Sue Sylvester in Glee)
- Unconventional people playing squares. (Straw Squares? I guess there must be many examples too, since most actors are rather on the left/liberal end of the political spectrum.)
- Very rarely however related to skin color, because it wouldn't make sense.
