What happened to Greg Kinnear?
Nothing much happened to Greg Kinnear except that he took a rather interesting role in a TV series he recently starred in. The title of the TV show is Misbehaviour. In the show, he plays the role of the great comedian Bob Hope. As interesting as this is already, what was even more compelling was that he plays Bob Hope as the host of the 1970 Miss World beauty pageant. The controversy of the 1970 Miss World pageant was that a protest group, the Women’s Liberation Movement, went live on stage to show their disdain against beauty competitions that objectify women and that subject women to standards dictated by men. In the show, Greg Kinnear portrays Bob Hope as a man who was against gender equality. This was a new role for Greg Kinnear as he played the good guy most of the time. Still, he took the role and has been doing an excellent job in his portrayal. Prior to becoming an actor, Greg Kinnear worked as a host for the show Later in the early 1990s.
