I gently point out that while Alfred Molina is awesome, him constantly playing non-white people is problematic and all of a sudden I get this backlash. Someone even told me I wasn’t allowed to identity him as white. He’s Spanish and Italian. Nowhere have I read that he has any PoC ancestry.
Other than that it’s the same old same old “so they should cast some possibly unqualified actually Pakistani unknown?” like only white famous people are qualified to act and sprung from the womb with a full resume.
This movie looks kinda funny, but Tina Fey doesn’t have a great track record on minority issues. I don’t trust her to not mess this up.
