When over weight funny people lose weight do they get a little less funny?
(I 'borrowed' this from Ashton Kutcher's Twitter page)
Seriously though...I do think actor's are typecast. And, unfortunately, some get the roles because of their weight. My brother mentioned years ago that he thought Chris Farley had to maintain his weight because he wouldn't be as funny thinner.
I just hope no matter who you are, that you're comfortable with yourself and healthy too.
