|Cast of Jem & the Holograms movie|
I don't get upset over much that happens in Hollywood when it comes to casting. I accept the fact that they cast people that look like them. Their whole goal is to make money so if Sandra Bullock sells more tickets them Angela Bassett then she will get more roles. Simple as that. But when a Facebook friend posted a picture of the cast of the new Jem & the Holograms movie I was done!
First, let me give my politically correct statement. It is nice that these young ladies are working actresses and I'm not saying that they don't deserve the roles but I do fault the casting directors for their poor casting choices. They obviously were not trying to be true to the cartoon because they couldn't have made the cast any more racially ambiguous. I assume they confused their casting of Jem and the Holograms with casting for a Disney movie.
