So, with all the casting news going on, I think we should talk about casting and the possibility the cast will be “white washed.”
White washing in reference to movies and television means that the cast, even if the book has many races, is all white.
Now, in Divergent we have many different races, I won’t even go into all of them but, from what I can tell so far the cast is being “white washed.”
Obviously we only have one official casting, but many people need to remember that Four is biracial and so far the guy in talks for Four looks white. I will no matter what watch the movie, so, casting doesn’t really affect whether I see the movie.
Be ready for the term “white washed” to be tossed around!
