I was a bit taken back by the really bizarre rants that you noted in your op-ed piece from a far-right professor and blogger who has attacked Dustin Hoffman's "ethnic appearance." He's one of greatest character actors in the history of cinema. And he was also a pioneer for breaking through the mold of the long established cultural stereotypes in the industry that Hollywood executives promoted as the narrow definition of a leading male in commercial films. The fact that he is also Jewish seems incidental to his craft. He's an icon of film.
