The BBC just needs to fuck off with this shit. Also, how are they going to roll the Trojan Horse into Troy after the black guys inevitably steal the wheels off it?

Quote:

The BBC has released the first pictures from “Troy: Fall of a City,” the upcoming swords and sandals epic it is making with Netflix.

Filmed in Cape Town, South Africa, the series stars David Threlfall (main image), in a very different guise from Frank Gallagher of “Shameless,” as well as Frances O’Connor (“The Missing”) and David Gyasi (“Interstellar”).

Image

In the series Gyasi plays Achilles (above). David Farr (“The Night Manager”) penned the eight-part series, which BBC drama boss Piers Wenger said “will be like nothing broadcast before: a 3,000-year-old tale crafted on a huge scale.”

The story is told from the perspective of the Trojan royal family at the heart of the siege. Endemol Shine-backed producers Wild Mercury and Kudos are producing. The BBC will launch the series in the U.K. and Netflix internationally.

There was also a first look (below) at Louis Hunter and Bella Dayne as Paris and Helen, the lovers whose affair plunges Greece and Troy into war and threatens to bring both empires to their knees.

First James Bond and now Achilles is black too.

And Alexander Hamilton was a gay Hispanic guy.....


I think they painted Helen's boobs with silver paint...as if they needed accentuation.

If the actor plays it well what's the problem?

Or is we now jumping on the cultural appropriation victim identity bandwagon just because everyone else seems to be heading that way?

Suppose they were making a movie about Shaka Zulu and they cast Danny de Vito as Shaka...what do you think would happen? :lol:

It's a problem when the BBC are rewriting history to promote their bullshit diversity bollocks.

Well, but in modern age you can call yourself anything and no SJW can deny you your identity. Thus, a black Briton can now imagine himself to be Cuchulain reincarnate. Is that so bad? If they're identifying as BRITONS then they're not identifying as Cetshwayo or some muzzie holy warrior, no?

Just saying you could make this work for you.

Should it ever happen, the day all the cholos in the USA self-identify with the defenders of the Alamo rather than with Santa Anna will be a great day for America.

That is true but when Hamilton came to LA white actors were advised not to audition.

That is problematic.

Agreed. Separate issue?

White men need not apply.

I've heard that one enough to know that the modern SJW movement is full of such nasty venomous cryptofascist brutes that opposing them is a virtue of itself.

I have not done any acting since elementary school, but I see myself in the starring role for the next productions of the life story of either Martin Luther King, Jr, Malcom X, Cesar Chavez, or maybe Jennifer Lopez.

Anyone see any problem with that?
