Part of the issue is that transformational acting like that is almost exclusively the domain of white performers. They are considered "neutral" and adaptable to any type of role. But of course, that is purely cultural--there is nothing about white skin that makes it transformational.

But if we saw a black or asian actor made up to play (for example) Hilary Clinton, we would only accept it as meta-theater, not as a genuine transformation.
