Went to the Ender’s Game IMDB page just because I wanted to see what was going down.
Thinking: oh cool, I like abigail breslin, she was so cute in Little Miss Sunshine
Thinking: OMG Harrison Ford as Graff, that’s hilariously cool.
Thinking: Ooh, Ben Kingsley, like despite donning brownface for that Gandhi movie it’s super cool that he’s actually half Indian and being portrayed as Mazer Rackham (as Mazer Rackham in the book is supposed to be some white as fuck non-Jewish Polish person?)
…And then I lost my shit when I saw this:
VIOLA GODDAMN DAVIS IS PLAYING MAJOR ANDERSON.
THEY NOT ONLY CAST A PERSON OF COLOR, THEY CAST A BLACK WOMAN. THAT’S GENDER BENT, I’M PRETTY SURE.
HOLY FUCK, YOU GO, CASTING DIRECTOR OF ENDER’S GAME, 4 FOR YOU, CASTING DIRECTOR OF ENDER’S GAME.
(…and there was none for M. Night Shymalan)
