Fandango asks us this week…
Does diversity casting in TV shows or movies, where fictional characters who were presumed to be white in the source material are portrayed by non-white actors, concern or bother you? Why do you feel that way?
The simple and short answer for me is, no!
I don’t think its worth complaining about!
I feel any actor, if they are a good actor, will do a good job at portraying whatever character they are portraying.
The fact that they may not be white, and may be portraying a white character doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things.
As long as they do a good job…right?
That’s what matters in the end.
You can still totally enjoy a show, well I can, even if the actors portraying the white characters are Asian, or black.
