Re: STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS - Grading & Discussion [SPOILERS]
Oh. A credible
example in a widely-appreciated film.
Might as well include Richard Pryor as the lead in SOME KIND OF HERO, too. That was casting against type of the kind making Joel Grey's asian in REMO WILLIAMS look politically correct.
It was a joke. I was deliberately posting a ridiculous example from a movie I hated.
I could not care less about Benjamin Cumberbatch's skin tone in the movie. All I care about is his performance, which from everything I've seen so far looks to be outstanding.
'First Contact' is the tale of a man who just wants to cash in on his creation so he can get wasted on an island full of naked women, but his fans keep insisting that he's a saintly visionary who has profoundly altered the world. AKA - 'I Don't Want to be a Statue: The Gene Roddenberry Story.'
