From 2008: I hate it when people confuse actors with the characters they play. For example, just because 11-year-old Joey Luthman appears on the Showtime sitcom “Weeds” doesn’t mean he’s a pothead. At least I hope not! And just because he has a role in the new movie An American Carol alongside Kelsey Grammer, Leslie Nielsen, Dennis Hoppe and James Woods doesn’t mean he’s a conservative right-winger. Not that there’s anything wrong with it.
