Hmmm. He looks like Lokai from Let That Be Your Last Battlefield.
Yes. It does. And that could be awesome.
While I can appreciate the allegorical aspects of that episode, and appreciate the "Literary Science Fiction" feel to that story (as if it was a short story written by Ray Bradbury in a Science Fiction Anthology magazine), I can't help but think those half-black/half-white faces wouldn't quite work in a major motion picture.

But, yeah -- I agree that the story told in "LTBYLB" could be a great movie, but if executed in a slightly different manner.

With fingernails that shine like justice and a voice that is dark like tinted glass...
