5. Re: Why Is a White Actor Playing 'Prince of Persia'? May 28, 2010, 16:10 Kxmode

Funny how it seems it seems normal when films casts a bunch of unknowns, like 300 for example it's fine. The chance that someone might have a cast someone that isn't white? DEAR GOD NO

300 was an ensemble cast because the story was about a group of people struggling against insurmountable odds. Prince of Persia is about one person against insurmountable odds. They gave the role to an actor they believe will be able to play the part well, has a large screen pressense, and draw a lot of ticket sells. I don't doubt someone from Bollywood would be able to play the part well, and have a screen pressense, but there's the issue of drawing in ticket sells. Names pull in crowds. A film starring Jake Gyllenhaal is going to sell more tickets for an American audience the same as a film starring Naveen Andrews would sell more tickets for an Indian audience.

They casted a fucking white woman as chun li for ffs. Hollywood is infected with tons of racists, always has, always will sad to say.

I think most people know Jewish people run Hollywood. So are you suggesting Jewish people are racist? That's what it sounds like to me.
