    I have BLARMS level hate for Benedict Cumberbatch as Khan in Into Darkness. They took a badass dude like Ricardo Montalban and replaced him with a pasty scrawny dweeb wtih a stupid name.

    Speaking of Ricardo Montalban, I just adore him. He was a talented actor and very handsome back in the day. I just do not get the roles where he played asian dudes. He's so un-asian looking. I know he was one of very few Hispanic actors working in Hollywood at the time, and we were probably still terrified of Asian people, so he took on a lot of "not-white-guy" roles. When he played Native American characters it worked, playing Khan in ToS and TWOK worked, but putting a shitton of eye makeup on him and calling him Nakamura is harder to make convincing.
    They did that in an episode of Bonanza (I think?), he was given so much slanty-asian-eye makeup that he couldn't even blink. Just hire a goddamn asian dude and let Mr. Montalban use his eyes correctly.

    They did the same thing with David Carradine. Hollywood can be a racist-ass place.

    That's Mickey Rooney from, I believe, Breakfast at Tiffany's.

    Basically doing his best "Ooooh, herro!" Asian stereotype

    Reviving this thread entirely because Disney has just made a terrible casting decision
