Lynn Collins talks ‘Silver Fox’ of X-Men Origins: Wolverine
Are the critics mollified? Not if you go by this posting:
Sheesh. Is there any actor who isn't qualified to play an Indian these days?
Since we have three instances of this happening, it's officially a trend. When casting an Indian role, studios find the cutest, hottest star they can with an ounce of Indian blood. Voilá! Political correctness is satisfied and critics are supposed to shut up about it.
These studios must not use Google to identify "Native" actors. Because if they searched for Lynn Collins, they wouldn't find any evidence that she's Native. But I'm sure they have great resources at their fingertips, or we might have to accuse them of "insensitivity and laziness."
Yeah, I'd say it's lazy and insensitive when you act like bigots. No one would hire an Indian to play Wolverine, the Lone Ranger, or Edward Cullen from Twilight, but white pseudo-Indians get hired to play Silver Fox, Tonto, and Jacob Black. Discriminating in casting based on race is the epitome of racism.
So put this in your (peace) pipe and smoke it, Twentieth Century Fox. Your casting decision is racist. Because my blog is popular, people will find this note whenever they Google "Silver Fox." If you don't like being called racist, change your racist casting policies.

P.S. To reiterate the point for Google's search engine: Twentieth Century Fox...racist.
