Actor Brandon T. Jackson says God has forgiven him for playing gay in the 2008 Ben Stiller movie Tropic Thunder.
TMZ reports: ‘Jackson famously played Alpa Chino in the 2008 Ben Stiller flick — a closeted actor who accidentally revealed feelings for a guy named “Lance” … it was a hilarious scene. But, Jackson is now a pretty religious Black Hebrew Israelite — and playing gay doesn’t jive with his religious beliefs. “I was on thin ice then with the father,” Jackson said on “TMZ Live” … “But, he had his mercy and his grace was there.’
TMZ adds: ‘Jackson says the bigger issue is when he wore a women’s dress for his role in the 2011 Martin Lawrence flick, “Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son.” Jackson says he broke a religious law prohibiting men from wearing women’s clothing — “And, when you break a law you get punished.”‘
