I have spent all morning working on this. An anon asked for my live action suggestions for Overwatch characters, and I wanted to give them a serious answer. Some (most) of these aren’t perfect, but it was a struggle.
And I do not have everyone. If you have suggestions, tell me. Please. I need more. (I also took some from other lists people had). I didn’t do Bastion because he wouldn’t need a fancast really.
So, here we go.
Anthony Varrenchia (I recently found out he had a husband who passed away, and that made me so sad.)
I support the idea of Jesse McCree being a POC, but I had a hard time finding someone I wanted. If you have any ideas, tell me.
Oscar Isaac (this was me being self-indulgent and loving the idea of Oscar Isaac dressed up as McCree. Plus, he is a POC, but not perfect for what McCree might be in terms of ethnicity.)
Don’t even talk to me about how hard it was finding someone for this man.
Lawrence Makoare (HE WAS IN LORD OF THE RINGS)
Another difficult one to find. Ugh.
I could not find someone I absolutely loved for her, and I am disappointed.
Once again, difficult to find someone.
So, the problem I had with finding his had to do with trying to find Afro-Latino actors. I have Idris Elba, but that’s accurate because it erases a part of Gabriel’s ethnicity. There are not many actors for him, and this was basically me settling for someone.
Honestly, I believe in the fact that Mei is chubby/fat. That is something I love, and I will not sacrifice that for anything. Though, I wasn’t able to find many chubby Chinese actresses without Porn wanting to pop up.
