the word "acting" apparently has an extremely broad definition


Ted calls John and tries to persuade him that he must come over to the party because Sam Jones is there.
-- John, Flash Gordon [character played by Sam Jones in the eponymous movie] was the most important influence of our formative years. He taught us right from wrong, good from evil. And that the word "acting" apparently has an extremely broad definition. Flash Gordon is the symbol of our friendship, John.
Ted, movie

To you, what does he mean by the violet part?
Thank you.

    The definition of 'acting' must be extremely broad if it includes what Sam Jones did in Flash Gordon. In other words, his acting was pretty bad.
