I saw three cricket fields just on my descent into Ireland.
I was trying to think of Indian actors that could’ve played Khan/racebent Gary and the only one whose name I knew off the top of my head was Kumail Nanjiani
can you even imagine that movie
racebent Gary’s eyebrows/Spock’s eyebrows OTP 5evar

a lot of ppl think since it got out they looked at an indian actor it gave the game away it was khan, so jj thought he’d be clever and cast a white dude instead to throw ppl off so he could keep the surprise. :/ :/ :/
That is so laaaaaaaaaammmmeee. Who cares about being surprised it’s Khan? Most of the people who knew anything about Star Trek (or at least enough to know the race of Khan) were starting to think it was him anyway, just because there were so many shout-outs to his movie and episode in the trailers. When the big reveal came none of them were like “OH MAN SUCH A SURPRISE BECAUSE HE’S WHITE wow :-O” Everyone just bowed their head for a moment and thought “I fucking knew you made this dumbass mistake, J.”
They should’ve hired an Indian actor and made it look like Khan in all the trailers and then revealed that it was Gary. That would’ve been surprising.
Eh I read an article about how they tried to get this Indian guy to play him but they couldn’t agree on his pay so he turned it down. But still it’s not like there were no other qualified indian actors
Yeah, for sure. And there are lots of other villains Sherlock could have played. Gary Mitchell’s one of my favorite villains, and I was hella-hoping for him, but nah. They did it stupid. The movie itself was phenomenal. This bit was done stupid, though.
Kill Bill: Vol. 2 (2004)
spock? spock what happened to you??? SPOCK???
Love story of the decade
serious. we can be upset about the whitewashing and be vocal about it but it doesn’t negate everything about the movie and the other characters and actors and shit. :(
EXACTLY! People are getting sooo defensive, though, it’s crazy. Being like “BUT IT WAS SO GOOD!” It’s like walking into a conversation about diabetes health and screaming “BUT CHOCOLATE IS TASTY” every time someone tries to make a decent point.
Star Trek: Into Darkness was brilliant
and they shouldn’t have whitewashed Khan
“movie is brilliant” and “whitewashing is bad” are two different truths
one does not negate the other
these are not two sides of one argument
we’re good, guys
