Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

Just to help prove my point, yet another white guy gets cast in a show in the last five minutes. Henry Ian Cusick joins The Hundred.

Well he's a good actor, I don't mind that at all, but I think I'm seeing a real gender as well as race bias in the roles Deadline is reporting (they just report major roles being cast, so the lesser-token roles don't even show up on their radar.)

EDIT: ANOTHER white guy! And I'm just reporting the genre shows. I swear, way more than half of the casting news is not just white actors but white guys. Well as long as they're cool like Mark Pellegrino, I won't complain but it's getting pretty weird...is Hollywood just giving up on anything more than token diversity?

Pellegrino, repped by Domain and Framework, will play Dr. Jedikiah Price, an evolutionary biologist committed to containing the threat posed by the “Tomorrow People,” whom he believes to be a grave danger to the human race. He recurs on the CW veteran series Supernatural and on Syfy’s Being Human.
