Would you recast a white actress as Gail, now, if you could?

Rosario Dawson is black, Gail isn't. It's a simple question.

Yeah. Pretty white.

I think Rosario Dawson was an excellent cast though.

Agreed. Even if I had read the graphic novel(s) before watching the movie, I still would have liked Rosario's performance.

I agree, she was, and she proves my point.

Hence why I'm asking him if he'd cast a white actress, because she is white (And it has nothing to do with the printing, because Manute is black, and he is black in the comics).

If he wouldn't re-cast her as white, his original, long-winded argument sort of backfires. Yet, he won't answer me, no matter how civilly I ask, so I suppose it's up to someone else to ask.

Thats a B & W pic, bro. I believe you, no worries, I just wanna see it, you know? Is there a pic of whats his name? Michael Duncan Clarke's character? (I think thats his correct name stick out tongue )

BTW: Rosario aint "Black."

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rosario_Dawson

Dawson's mother is of Puerto Rican and Afro-Cuban descent and her father is of Irish and Native American ancestry.

So....if a black man is cast as Kratos, it would be an innacurate casting, because, according to history, blacks could be only slaves in Ancient Greece.

So.....Kratos must be white.

She's not white either, so quit the dodging and answer the question.

(please log in to view the image)

From his bio:

Manute:

"A huge African-American man, typically dressed as a valet, who is very gentlemanly and polite in all situations, even while committing homicide, who served Ava Lord and is later recruited by the Colonel and Wallenquist. He is also nigh indestructible, having been crucified (by Miho), shot repeatedly (by Dwight), beat up numerous times (by Marv and Wallace), and relieved of an eye (again, by Marv). Manute is finally gunned down by Old Town hookers during 'The Big Fat Kill'. In the deleted scenes, he was shown to have escaped from the assault by the Old Town girls with Schutz and another thug, only to be sliced down the middle by Miho in an alley way. Portrayed by Michael Clarke Duncan in the film adaptation."

He's black.

So what's the deal? Rosario was awesome, but she wasn't white, so what would you do? It shouldn't have taken this long for you to answer a simple question. If you need reminding of your initial stance, it's this:

No matter how well a character is played, skin tone should be adhered to.

Let this thread be marked so he can never accuse anyone of dodging again.

It's funny really.

-AC

Of course it is a black and white picture. Sin City is a black and white comic.


Also, when I say black, I don't mean of deeply african descent. But chocolately coloured no expression

Chocolately laughing out loud

Yeah, well, I guess I gotta admit that was a casting discrepancy, even if she did a great job. The movie being B & W, in addition to her being light skinned, makes it not as hard to accept though.

How could someone throw away his stance like that?

Talk about not being a man and standing by your words. Well, I'm satisfied that I've proven my point, since he just gave what definitely amounts to a 180 degree turn (Unless he corrects himself).

Have we established what Kratos should be?

Guess what I love the smell of guys?

Much younger girls. Too young. Oh wait, that's not me, that's someone else.

And yes, Krunk'd, everyone's stayed at the Y, because it's fun apparently.

Maybe that guy can't read...lol...big grin

No, in all seriousness, we need some type of news on where this movie is at right now. At this point, I don't think the movie will be made anytime soon, no matter how cool it sounds.

My personal Favorites would be Bridge over the river Kwai , Saving Private Ryan and Platoon.

Speaking of Jaffe, didn't he say he wants to work on GOW III?
