Kevin Kline is trending for transphobic reasons, so here's an appreciation thread of my favorite Kevin Kline roles.
First, A Fish Called Wanda
I watched the movie for Jamie Lee Curtis but stayed for Kline. My crush still burns strong 33 years later. He's so damn funny and it still holds up 🥰
Second, Dave. I should rewatch this soon.
3. I Love You to Death. This was on cable all the time when I was a kid. I remember calling it "the mustache movie". Not to be confused with the other film I 4 called "the mustache movie" Loverboy(1989, Patrick Dempsey).
4. The Pirates of Penzance. Linda Ronstadt as Mabel. You've never seen it? You must.
5. Silverado
Another one that was always on cable. Also another I need to rewatch. 6
6. Bob's Burgers as Mr. Fischoeder. My favorite of his roles. And yeah, he IS a big ole sexy boy.
I love Kevin Kline and am glad to share a birthday with him. Also, the horrible people on twitter comparing him to another person can fuck right off.
I block anyone with Tr*mp in their name so if you think I'm going to respond to your garbage
Sorry everyone. Kevin Kline isn't being transphobic.
To clarify, some folx think it's funny to compare him to Melinda Gates.

It's transphobic and not funny.
Adding French Kiss to the list. The people have spoken!
Adding In and Out too. He's just so damn good in everything that we could be here all night ☺️
The Big Chill. Glenn Close's hair deserves its own credit at the end 💜
Muting this now but glad we can all have some fun.

For the record, saying that Melinda Gates should be portrayed by Kevin Kline in a movie about her divorce is transphobic and misogynistic. Not one or the other. I chose to do a thread on my love for Kevin Kline
I'm not all that familiar with Melinda Gates but I wish her well. No one deserves the nastiness thrown at her today.
