Most gorgeous Dev Patel tells it like it is re: Hollywood, and only anyone who isn’t alive in the present century would disagree:
Hollywood is racist, in general, in it’s casting choices.
I for one am sick of seeing white people, white white white people playing the heroes and heroines, while brown people are, as Dev says, usually evil, sidekicks, or just background fodder.
Hey Dev, get together with some of the brilliant people you’ve met and CHANGE THAT!!!! MAKE MOVIES with non-traditional casting, and scripts that actually have some complexity!
I’ll bet another comedy about the brown actor’s experience in Hollywood would be a hit, and with your natural humour I’m sure you could at least co-write a good one!
I love your bluntness and honesty, don’t let them change you –
