They went with Gyllenhaal because he's ''hot'' right now.

Which persian or other ethnic (for that matter) actor will attract as much customers as him?

Times have changed, they're not willing to take those risks anymore. Atleast mostly not.

^^Not true, it's still a common practice, this is just simply a case of lazy casting.

Come on, you don't believe that yourself, do you?

They're not going to be lazy with a big budget movie, that's nonsense.

Would you rather make 10 Million with Gyllenhaal or 2 Million with your friend the actor?

Clearly you don't see the bigger picture, if an uknown is cast in the main role, what they do is that they fill the supporting characters with names, this way they still get what they need in terms of star power yet have a suitable lead.

I have no issue with Jake Gyllenhall as an actor, im sure he will be great in the role because I know he is a great actor, but it was wrong to choose a white actor to play an ethnic role, especially one as obvious as this, my friend wasn't even given the chance to audition for the role which is an utter disgrace quite frankly and im sure other better suited actors wern't given the opportunity either, no they just went to the big star name list and picked Jake out hence the lazy casting. And before you say anything about me exagurating I know for a fact that casting directors use a star name list...see Jessica alba in fantastic 4 for proof.

Hmmm.. if you look at it that way you're probably right, they probably got the best known available actor who could pull it off.

On the other hand, would you do it any different? It will probably still sell better now.

Historicaly it's obviously not right but in the movies it doesn't bother me if they haven't got the right skin color.

But will it sell better?..let's take a look at his filmography for a minute, his most successfull film so far was him playing a gay cowboy, his other credits include a small indie flick (donnie darko) a psychological war drama (jar head) and a thriller (zodiac) his closest movie to match the demographic that POP is going to attract would have to be day after tommorow. When you actually look at that history none of those flicks say he has mass box office appeal, in fact POP from what I read is supposed to be his big budget breakout since he didn't get the role in spider-man.

So you would be ok with a black man playing a chinese kung fu hero and a japanese guy playing an all american?

Are you saying they took a list of actors and said:

''Let's take............................................ him!''

??

Which actor would be a better pick?

He did a great job in Zodiac, can't say I watched any of the other movies but he's a good actor. They must've had some reason to choose him.

And yes, I think it will sell better with him in it than a less known persian or darker actor.

About the skin color, I'm sorry, I didn't know you had that much feelings about it.
White and persian (tanned? not sure what to call it) people is totally different than black and yellow or yellow and white. That makes no sense.

What I meant to say is that a white person can play someone who's a bit darker.

You don't have to overreact.

Well, I couldn't care less about the cast, I just gave my opinion, you went after me after all posts I made.

About over reacting, I'm not sure if that was the right word, I was talking about the color thing.

Never mind though, this is not worth it, we're obviously not going to agree.

It's all good.
