TMP takes a brief look back at the history of whitewashing in Hollywood as well as the accusations brought against recent Summer films. Since when does cating the best person for the role become an issue?
I always thought Charlton Heston in 'Touch of Evil' was a laugh.
Great article, and I could not agree more.
I admit, that whitewashing is still around to some degree (like in the film 21), but for the most part, I don't know of any directors who would really care anymore. Some of the most successful actors are of color.
I fully believe that casting should be based on the best person for the job.
Just so long as directors aren't permanently discriminating it shouldn't be a big deal.
It feels more discriminating to exclude good actors just because they're white. I think the people protesting these films have it backwards.
No sh!t it white washing and it not only in the movie it the world history i love how white people made god and all the angels white.
btw i'm mix so yeah
HAhahah!! Oh man that's something. "BTW I'm mix so yeah". Well done. Funny stuff. Don't take it wrong man.
I just think the "protesters" should have done a better job on research. What they failed to see is that Prince of Persia is a GAME adoption and, oh look, the character in games is always WHITE. I agree with the article completely, but c'mon think before speaking yo. Peace.
I think anyone who has seen Last Airbender can agree good casting was not part of the equation.
Yeah...there was plenty wrong with the film. I guess protesters could have just let that one die on its own.
