Robert DeNiro, after being reminded that he doesn’t have to suck in Silver Linings Playbook, is taking the producer tact for a moment and is behind a Showtime series about white supremacists in South Boston, titled Fourth Reich.
With such sensitive subject matter, I hope DeNiro takes pains to portray the neo-nazis in an evenhanded and fair fashion. Because the depiction of racists in media recently has been pretty darn unflattering.
Depictions aside, it’s nice to see that DeNiro seems to have taken a break from phoning it in to do some actual work of substance. Keep it up, Bobby D!
