I always thought Charlton Heston in 'Touch of Evil' was a laugh.

Great article, and I could not agree more.

darklordzor4984d ago

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.

CMDobson4983d ago

It feels more discriminating to exclude good actors just because they're white. I think the people protesting these films have it backwards.
