No see this makes the whole “Khan being white” issue even WORSE. Not only did they whitewash KHan, they wouldn’t even tell the man anything about the role for fear of him rejecting it AND they didn’t pay him well for it. That’s just throwing salt in the wounds.
I have NO problem with BC. I have ALL THE PROBLEMS WITH WHOEVER iS IN CHARGE AND DECIDED TO DO THIS. BC is a wonderful actor who portrayed the role well but the fact they were scared he’d turn it down and that he was only hired because of his cult following just downplays ALL of that.
yeah also what the fuck. like even if it weren’t totally a shitty move whitewashing, if that were somehow okay, how the fuck is ANY actor supposed to get into character if they don’t know WHICH CHARACTER THEY NEED TO BE IN.
This just proves to me that they knew what they were doing was wrong and there would be backlash for it….and they decided to do it anyway. That is fucked up on a huge level.
Can we throw Abrams from the TGV while it’s running at high speed? Please?
One tiny crack in the hull and our blood boils in thirteen seconds. Solar flare might crop up, cook us in our seats. And wait till you’re sitting pretty with a case of Andorian shingles. See if you’re still so relaxed when your eyeballs are bleeding! Space is disease and danger wrapped in darkness and silence.
