Great...

Don't you think originally wanting to hire Benicio del Toro makes Orci's statement meaningless?

Who says it was Orci's choice?

Re: Orci strikes back

Hold up what's worse:

- Casting someone who might be wrong for the part purely cause of their skin color

- Casting someone who is right for the part but is a different skin color than what the character was previously established as?

I'd hate to have seen the shit storm had they cast an African-American for the role of Kirk or Spock.

Or maybe they rethought it and decided not to go with him for those very reasons.

If we're now concerned about language, I ask that you please remove King Daniel's avatar that exclaims "FUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCKFUCK" in every single post. I don't know what meaning that has in Europe, but I'm pretty sure in the US it's something not nice.

I think it means "let me introduce you to my sister."

This isn't the appropriate place to tender a request of that nature, and sassing a forum mod with it in response to a request not directed at you is effectively pointless. Try PMing an Admin instead.

Really "Fuck" still gets people in a twist?

If it works, it works. Rewatch TWOK with that scene in mind, and there's a bit of wistfulness to it.
