    You know, I don't fault an actor for leaving a film because of his political beliefs, but god-fucking-damnit, whitewashing is *NOT A THING* and people need to stop treating it like one. An actor's race has nothing to do with his or her ability to play a part. What matters is their talent and how good they are at their job.
    And I shouldn't have to remind you of the blatant *hypocrisy* of casting black actors in traditionally white roles. If it's wrong when white people do it, it's also wrong when black people do it. Stop making this all about the perceived sins of white people for once in your lives.

    The thing about Christopher Plummer replacing Kevin Spacey though is that Plummer was great in that role. It would be great to see all of his scenes side by side with Spacey in the same scenes but based on what little I saw in the trailer with Spacey in the role verses the same scenes in the actual movie, I thought it was actually an improvement.

    Not true facts. Connery was too old for such physical role as Gandalf, and he knew it. MacKellen was no boy, but younger than him. Besides, Jackson wasn't exactly most famous director back then.

      WatchMojo was probably talking out its a** and making stuff up. Sean Connery was the Scotsman who played an Eqyptian pretending to be a Spaniard (opposite a Frenchman playing a Scotsman no less) in a movie about immortals chopping each others heads off in pursuit of a vague, undefined "prize". I think he would have been able to understand the Lord of The Rings movies just fine

Stopped watching they didn't leave they turned down, Alec Guinness didn't like Star Wars and made a ridiculous bid for I think .5% of the gross take and they accepted and even upto the first screening he thought he'd made a horrendous mistake and in my view he did, because it was a shit film for all the special effects, but if people think its good and stump up the cash I wouldn't argue. Thanks for the money you stupid cunt.

    Regarding black, Asian and white actors playing roles, in a historical true life drama, I believe the actor should be from the same race and gender as the real character. When it comes to fiction, this is less important. That's why its called acting. However, producers have to be wary of not annoying fans as films are about profits which is why I doubt we'll see a black, female, gay 007.

    I have never believed the Kevin Spacey accusation. I mean, talk about a 'coincidence' for a scandal like that coming out when it did (during all those other scandals like it). Of course it would be believed. All a person (or child) has to do is step forward, point a finger at an unsuspecting (innocent) celebrity, make a bizarre (not to mention trendy) claim and bingo. Cash settlement & that celebrity's life is ruined.

    Sean Connery is an absolute legend but he made some questionable decisions towards the end of his acting career. Hard to imagine anyone other than Ian McKellen play the role now (who smashed it imo). I'd like to think Connery would've given an equally impressive performance had he decided to take the role.

    Sean Connery has never struck me as a very intelligent person. Ian McKellan, on the other hand, is. Tolkien was a brilliant author and used the genre to make moral statements of great depth and beauty. Sean Connery would have made a horrible Gandalf. He's wooden, has always been obsessed with himself and his appearance, felt entitled and demanded privilege in life based on his male gender, and wouldn't have expressed the heart, nuances, kindness and compassion, sensitiviy, and range of emotions needed for the character that Ian could. And he obviously never read the books. For obvious reasons. Ian Mckellan is the only Gandalf. It was just meant to be.

    When speaking of whitewashing one should also bear blackwashing in mind. It's funny how casting a white man for an originally black character is totally unacceptable by today's media and masses. Yet if a black man is cast to play an originally white character no one seems to notice. The most outstanding examples of blackwashing can be seen in Marvel movies, e.g. Nick Fury, Heimdall, Mordo. Granted, most of these characters are uninteresting enough that it doesn't matter. In case of Nick Fury it's actually good as Samuel L. Jackson is great. BUT, a black man can is just too unbelievable in the role of a Norse god.

    You are incorrect about Buddy Epson leaving the Wizard of Oz due to reaction of makeup. To apply the tinman's facial makeup - they painted it white and blew real aluminum power into his face to make it silver. Buddy didn't know that he was breathing it in and his lungs were coated with the aluminum power... almost killing him. It was equivalent to having severe pneumonia. --- btw: -- When Buddy was in the hospital near death - the make-up was altered and they mixed in the aluminum power directly into the paint - creating "paste" that was painted on.
