    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

    Sylvester Stallone as the main character in The Italian Stallion

    Not Rocky, mind you. I'm talking about the porno flick he did when he was 19 and first got into acting.

    There was a porno from the early 70's that was originally called "Weekend At Kitty's Place" or something and it was a typical softcore movie that was kinda like the 70's version of a "Skinemax" movie or a Russ Meyer flick. Sylvester Stallone was in it under a fake name since he was young and was nearly homeless.

    After Rocky came out and was a smash success, the producers re-released the movie on VHS under the new title of The Italian Stallion

    Here's an example of video game miscasting

    Big the Cat's first English voice actor: John St. John (aka MOTHERFUCKING DUKE NUKEM)

    Damn he sounds like Duke Nukem if he was under a lobotomy.

    As good of a video game as The Matrix was, the Padme bits in the factory in Attack Of The Clones was the best video game ever.

    Sonic race sperging occurred a few weeks back over Knuckles because Idris Elba is voicing him. I find race coding a furry to be dumb but they can use a white guy or a black guy. I just can't imagine Idris voicing a furry echidna with spiky knuckles.

    I feel like Khary Payton (DC's Cyborg) would be a more appropriate choice for Knuckles. Other than his voice actor in the games, obviously.

    The Super Mario Bros. movie has been out for quite a while, actually.

    Bob Hoskins was a great Mario, even if he hated the movie and the experience working on it. Rest in peace, Bob.
