All Things Being Equal – Hollywood’s Casting Problem

Posted on Mar 3, 2014 in Blog | 0 comments

When Cloud Atlas came out last year, many people (who weren’t familiar with the book or movie) were rightly pissed. There were shouts of yellow face, the usual “Hollywood is racist” articles, and the mystification as to why anyone would cast white actors in Asian roles at all, especially when prostheses were necessary.   Then, there were the expected responses: The script called for trans-racial performances (and it did), the actors were the right ones for the job (eh), and roles...
