And I – not out of nobility, but out of practicality – I always keep in mind that there are a lot of artists out there; If we say he’s a character, he’s an important part of a certain background, the best way to do this is to find an actor from that background. “
He added: “But it goes into this weird question, ‘What if you don’t get an actor from that group for the purpose of presentation?’ Or ‘What if that actor is the worst actor in the world?’ Those conversations are minefields. The best thing people with privileges can do is not try to logically figure out, take a flyer; it sure doesn’t feel like it’s the right thing to do. Someone casts someone who doesn’t look like that.
