Absolutely seething over this casting choice. I have ZERO TIME.
YOU DON’T TAKE A LIVING BREATHING HUMAN BEING WHO ACTUALLY WALKED THIS EARTH, WHO WAS NOT A FICTIONAL CHARACTER, WHO WAS PARSI, AND CAST HIM AS AN ANGLO-SAXON WHITE DUDE IN A BIOPIC
THAT’S NOT OKAY
YOU MIGHT AS WELL MAKE UP YOUR OWN FICTIONAL CHARACTER AND MAKE A MOVIE ABOUT HIM
Well, at least Ben is an award wining “GAY” actor playing a well known gay musician. I think it’s nice they actually got somebody portraying gay and actually being gay… Plus being gay I think he got kicked out of the “white man club” and now is pretty much a minority with blacks and women, right?
