Charlton Heston resigned from Actors Equity, claiming the union’s refusal to allow a white actor to play a Eurasian role in “Miss Saigon” was “obscenely racist.”
I’m glad that a film giant like Heston cares so much about lil ol Eurasian me, and all my racial identity conflicts. Hes right ya’know. I’m genetically just as much a white male, as I’m an Asian. So a white man has as much right to play me, in Stuff Eurasian Males Likes the Movie, as an asian dude does. Heston is right, it would be OBSCENELY racist to not have a white actor play me in the Movie. Of course Hollywood puts white guys in the Asian role even when that isn’t an option like in 21. So obviously when it is an option, the white man will get the part. Probably on his own merits. After all Heston, has much more experiance as an actor, than any asian. Yes Stuff Eurasian Males Like the Movie starring Charlon Heston as the Eurasian male. And of course good ol Charlie wins the Asian girl in the end. And learns that Asian girls aren’t so bad after all, and hey maybe its fun to be an Asiaphile with yellow fever. Brenda Song would be a good actress since shes so adept at the loser white guy who wins the Asian girl in the end genre. Based on a true story.
