This blog entry sums up my feelings exactly.  Thank you, Derek Kirk Kim for spelling out the situation so eloquently.  

derekkirkkim.blogspot.com/2009…

In a related note, apparently they have open casting for extras.  People of all ethnicities are encouraged to apply:

Notable quote:

Deedee Rickets, the casting director for the film, said  "We want you to dress in traditional cultural ethnic attire," she said. "If you're Korean, wear a kimono. If you're from Belgium, wear lederhosen."

Umm... I thought kimonos were Japanese and lederhosen German.

This is America, the populous land of cultural diversity. They can't make the effort to find actors who are of the proper background, as well as proper talent?

Sadly I can’t agree.
Sorry to say this but almost none of the characters look Asians, with those big blue eyes.
I think Avatar would have been a much “serious” show if the characters had a truly Asian look, but sadly it was not the case…
If you didn’t dare to use truly Asian looking characters on the show why should they on the movie?

I love how people just use the characters' eyes to defend the casting and go on to ignore everything else about them and their world. Sure, forget their names, written language, attire, and everything about their world because their eyes are all that matter! This is still a fantasy show in which the color of the eyes represent one's nationality. Show me someone--anyone--with golden eyes and then we'll talk.

Asians as a whole are very diverse. Dark skin, fair skin, almond eyes, round eyes, single eyelid, double eyelid--they don't all look the same. There's a whole world beyond what you've seen and just because you haven't seen certain things doesn't mean they don't exist.

All Asian. There are even some people on the island of Hirado in Japan with naturally blonde/red hair. There used to be a site with a lot of pictures, but I can't seem to find it (sadly). However, I do have some of Kazakh boys.

The funny thing is that every quality you use as a counterpoint is about the personality/social behavior, not the appearance. Names, language, attire is something that any (good) actor can expose don’t mater its physique.
In fact, you strengthened my point. This is a fantasy show in which the color of the eyes represents one's nationality. So for the people representing the Water Tribe, I expect them to use, brown skinned blue eyed actors. If some character on the show has golden eyes, I expect him to be just like that on the movie.

So big eyes mean white, while narrowed eyes means Asian? So Sokka and Katara have blue eyes, it's to depict their nation. Big eyes in cartoons usually mean good characters, are an indicator of youth and innocence. Zuko definitely has an Asian look. He has jet black hair, almond shaped eyes, a good number of Asians do have light/pale skin. Sokka and Katara should have been cast with two people that had a darker complexion because their skin color isn't a simple tan. Asians comprise of more than 60% of the world's population so there definitely is a variety between us. Yes some characters in the main cast could have been white or Eurasian (Zuko, Suki, Ty Lee, Aang) but I still don't see how having blue eyes suddenly makes the Water Tribes white.

Actually yes. I know lots of Asian people where I live and none have big blue eyes. If you tell me that not all Asians have narrowed eyes I believe you, but if you made a series about native Africans and the characters have pale skin and red hair you can’t complain later when they get an Irish guy for the role.
Yes, big eyes in cartoons usually mean good characters, but if you search in the origins, foreigner look = evil on most movies and cartoons for the first part of 1900s. So, big eyes do mean Caucasian, even on anime where big eyes are taken from the look of traditional occidental cartoons.
If you found a pale skinned, Asian kid with big blue eyes then you have the perfect Aang. If not, use someone that looks like him, Asian or not.

No Asian person I met ever had blue eyes either, but they do exist, same thing with African Americans. The only moniker you're basing them off of is their eyes, which is wrong. I mean Sokka and Katara have darker skin and therefore should have actors with darker skin. If you looked I did list characters that could be Caucasian or Eurasian, but some like Sokka and Katara definitely should have darker skin. None of the actors (we have no idea what Noah Ringer looks like) look like any of the characters really, though it is a bit hard as their translating animation to live action. If the character I created was based in an African inspired world, but was pale and had red/blonde hair with blue eyes I would get the point. But that's not what happened here and there is a problem.

Again, if you find someone who looks like the characters use it. I don’t care where he is from. If you find an African actor that looks like Aang, great. If you find a Slav actress that look like Katara, great. Search for a pale big blue eyed kid for Aang. If he is Asian, great. If not, great too.

When they specified Caucasian first for all of the roles as well as chose Jackson and Jesse (before he was replaced) from the get go without having them being set to the same standards. Shymalan personally chose those two and they were flown out by the production team to audition, mainly because they wanted them primarily, it tends to show there was a bias and no real effort made to even find minority actors/actresses for those parts. It wasn't until they recast Jesse McCartney with Dev Patel did they start having non-white actors/actresses in the film. We know if Jesse stayed on it would automatically mean the Fire Nation Royal family would have to be white as well. There are some characters that do look white, so I wouldn't have a problem with those (such as Aang, Ty Lee, Suki) but when they wanted all four of the main characters to be white, then I take issue with it. Why all of a sudden are Katara and Sokka now fair skinned when they both had darker complexions in the show?

Do NOT want.

I knew that the movie would be a total failure as soon as Shyamalan was pegged as director (fun and funny action scenes have never been in his movies). Every bit of information that comes out just makes the movie seem a bigger and more insulting failure.

Kimonos and lederhosen. Well, that's just all the horrible quality of this upcoming movie wrapped into one ignorant statement. You would think these people would watch a few episodes of the show before working on the movie, but no.

The biggest twist would be if this movie turned out to be any good. >_<

The cast makes me sad. I really can't believe that the main four cast are being played by Caucasians when they're clearly depicted as Asian in the show. Especially Katara and Sokka; they're Inuit characters, and they're being played by extremely pale actors. I'm white myself, but I'm offended by that. It's as though they didn't think any ethnic actors were good enough to play the parts. My guess is that they didn't even LOOK for ethnic actors.

And have you heard Jesse McCartney's new interview? Apparently, Avatar was "explosively huge in Asia."

And apparently the casting director for extras is just as ignorant. Korean kimonos, really?

Hmmm...I have mixed feelings on the issue. Normally, I get slightly annoyed when they have all Asian cast for a live-action version of an anime. Not because I have anything against Asian people, but because they don't look like their animated counterparts. Let's face it: they all look white. Even in stories that are specifically set in Japan, written and drawn by Japanese people, they all still look white. Very little effort is made to make characters look the ethnicity they are supposed to be. And so, when they bring out a live action film with an all Asian cast, almost no one looks anything like the character they are portraying. Now, this is not necessarily true of Avatar, because effort was made to maintain the cultural part of the show, and many of the characters have characteristics of Asian and Inuit culture. Either way, I think it'll work. An Asian cast would have been great, but I think a white cast will be fine too. Shyamalan's a great filmaker, and I'm sure it'll turn out all right.

While I respect Shyamalan, I really think they should have given the movie to someone else more experienced in action (more specifically kung fu) movies, since fight scenes will probably take up a majority of the movie. And the casting of all white actors could be a coincidence, but I seriously and highly doubt it. They should change the cast or at least tweak it so that the ethnic groups that are represented in the actual show are also in the movie. It's infuriating to know that they're casting white actors in the parts of some of the more ethnic characters.

And seriously, Jesse McCartney? Someone shoot me. Or him. Please.

I....................didn't even know they were making a live action 'Avatar'..........


'Koreans wearing a Kimono and Belgiums wearing lederhosen' is nearly the most ignorant thing I've ever heard.

Japan had occupied and oppressed the Korean people for nearly 40 years and tried to wipe out Korean culture so every Korean was forced to wear Japanese clothing. Today, it is not uncommon that a Korean would rather die than wear a Kimono. I understand that Americans can be ignorant to history and facts, but this is just plain insensitive. Don't film makers research these things?

As for white actors playing Asian roles, I have no beef with White people, partly because I'm half white half korean American but I thought we lived in a time where anybody can be a hero, not just white main characters with little asian sidekicks. Are they seriously going to do this? It makes me wretch. >:(

You really think that this is the best they could do? REALLY? That the fact that they're all white is simply a 'coincidence'??? You honestly believe that there are no capable young Asian American actors and actresses? Who, I dare say, could be better than these choices?

They deliberately sought out white actors and actresses and had little to no intention of hiring Asian Americans/Latino/Native American actors to play the leads. This is Hollywood; they do it all the time under the belief that everyone wants to see 'white' people. This is not so, as proven by the overwhelming success of 'Slumdog Millionaire' which took home four Golden Globes and has been nominated for nine Acadamy Awards.

The movie '21' was based on real events surrounding Asian-American student Jeff Ma who attended MIT. Who do they get to play him?

A white guy. The real kicker is that '21' came out last year.

You have absolutely no proof that the casters were looking for all-white people, do you? I seriously doubt they'd judge auditionners on their race; imagine the repercussions there would be (this being a pretty well-known show). They probably just wanted the best for their movie, so they chose the best actor. Period, and it does make sense, since a majority of Americans are white.


This coming from an Asian girl, so please don't start in on the whole 'you're just racist' argument. :]

The casting sheets are all over the internet. I got these from [link]

[ AANG ]
12-15 years-old, Male, Caucasian or any other ethnicity. We are looking for a young man to play the lead role in a motion picture franchise. He must be athletic and graceful with an ability in Martial Arts (not necessarily extensive experience, but at least an aptitude for it). Kids with experience in gymnastics, dance, or sports could also be good. He is a young adventurer and should seem like the type of young man who will grow up to be heroic.

[ KATARA ]
14-17 years-old, Female, Caucasian or any other ethnicity. She is Sokka's younger sister. She is a headstrong and determined girl with a real sense of idealism. She believes in herself and feels that she can play on the same team as the boys. She is beautiful, intelligent, passionate, feisty, and has a real sense of adventure.

[ SOKKA ]
16-20 years-old, Male, Caucasian or any other ethnicity. He is Katara¹s older brother. He is intelligent but awkward, and very funny (although not necessarily intentionally so). He aspires to greatness, but he tends to doubt himself. He is always one to be swayed by a pretty girl.

[ ZUKO ]
16-20 years-old, Male, Caucasian or any other ethnicity. He is a brooding, intense young man who wrestles - not always successfully - with being good. Regaining his honor is a driving impetus for him. He is extremely handsome and is the type of dangerous boy every girl falls in love with. Athletic and/or martial arts experience is a plus.

And 1/3 of Americans *aren't* white. And no other minority actors were cast either, though you easily could have gotten Latino or black or Native actors for darker skinned Katara and Sokka. And if we could have a white Zuko, why not a black one?

Actually, there is sufficient evidence to suggest that the cast was and is racist. Here's a comment posted by a parent who took their 12 year old son to the Aang casting tryouts.

[link]

...So... my 12-yr old Asian (Filipino) American son auditioned for Aang but obviously didn't get the part. See here: [link]

Since all his interests are leading him into the entertainment industry, he took a small acting and modeling workshop back last Spring. Earlier this month we took a trip out to Hollywood to meet with a talent agency for representation. We were told they couldn't represent him because it "conflicted with another client". Being new to the industry, I kindly asked what that meant and the response was "he has a similar look to a child we already represent".

Look? He was there to seek represenation for his talents. Not his Look.

Do child talent agencies have a cap on how many ethnic children they can represent? How bout Asian boys who are American that have American accents and are 12? Boo Boo Stewart and Brandon SooHoo is all Hollywood needs I guess. (I love both of them btw.) Too bad we don't see enough of them either.

I hear this is Typical Hollywood. I had no idea until all this happened. So, now I'm not sure if I want to pursue an agency for him even though he really wants to act. Dilemmas...

Since day one of the cast announcement, I've wondered... was it because he really sucked in his acting audition (even though the sides/script was a bit off? Or - was he just not what they were "looking" for: [link] Again, I just can't help but wonder.

Here's the kicker: my son now thinks Aang, Katara, Sokka, and Zuko are supposed to be White since that's what has been casted. You should hear us debate... Me and my husband debating our child who auditioned for Aang about how the cast is offensive to us and should be to him. Yes, some kids don't know any better. It sucks. Luckily, we sorta got to him and he "kinda" gets it. Our fault for being white-washed 2nd/3rd generation Filipino's I guess. We still watch Avatar every night. But the proposed current main cast still hurts...


And seriously... Jesse McCartney and Jackson Rathbone??? THAT is the best they could come up with??? They're pop idols, that doesn't make them 'the best actors for the job.' The studio picked them because they already have a teen fanbase and want to use them as a draw for the movie, despite the fact that they don't even remotely resemble the characters.

You wanna tell yourself that they're 'the best actors for the job' then fine. But do you really think the studio's gonna come right out and say, 'Yeah, we hired white leads cause nobody wants to see an Asian on screen being the hero anyway.' They're not going to announce their intentions to hire white leads so obviously. The auditions for Sokka, Zuko and (I think) Katara were all closed casting calls, meaning they only looked for teen actors and actresses that were already 'in the know', so to speak.

Just ask anyone, anyone who has ever worked in Hollywood. They will tell you what I have been telling you; studio's do not hire many Asian-Americans or Native Americans, if at all. Any parts they do get are set in a stereotype role. Because Hollywood is quite possibly, the most racist place on Earth. Racism is alive and well in Hollywood, and good luck getting anyone at the top of the industry to own up to it. They won't.

Still don't believe me? Name me five movies in the past decade that featured Asian-Americans as the lead roles and heros and that didn't have to rely on a 'white hero' or any otherwise 'outside help' And try to leave out the kung-fu movies.

Okay, let's keep this short.

So you're trusting an account from ONE set of parents? And subjective, on top of that. How accurate!

Speaking of subjective, you must know that the quality of a person's acting skills is left to the judges opinion. So you don't like Jesse McCartney. Doesn't mean they don't have to. (Not to mention that being a pop idol probably has no influence over whether you can act or not.. although I have to admit it; I do doubt that it had no influence over why they got chosen.)

Glad to know you're an expert on the basis used to know how actors get chosen in Hollywood! Incidentally, how many Japanese movies can you name that have white leads?

No, sorry, that is not what most people are upset about. People are upset about yet another movie they will have to add to a list of "whitewashed" movies, where Hollywood has decided that only "white" actors can sell. Or, they're upset because PoC actors and actresses already have a hard enough time finding roles in the movie industry, and these roles could have gone to them, but have not.

So since this issue extends beyond just one movie, I assure you the casting decision has pissed off more than the fans. Comparing a call to increase diversity in the movie industry to fan-nitpicking over minutiae in the Transformer movie is completely belittling the efforts of people trying to end unequal casting practices and "yellowface."

From your comments below you seem to think this is just rantings from crazy "batshit insane" fans who freak out about "pairings." This is more about the aunt trying to assure her nephew that yes, he can still be Aang when he plays with his friends, and no, he doesn't have to be white to be Aang even though they cast a Caucasian actor for the role.

I know, and I'm sure so does everyone else, that it's up to the people making the movie. But that's precisely why protesters are calling those very movie-makers out on unfair casting practices. People know how Hollywood works, and they want some reform. Just because "this is the way things are" doesn't mean that people should not do anything. (Interracial marriage, for instance, was unheard of decades ago, and that was also just the way things were--until people changed it by pointing out its wrongness.)

Again, this issue is older and goes beyond just the Avatar casting. People who protest this will go on to protest other unfair representation of PoC in media. So yeah, "who plays what" definitely is up to the people making the movie--it's the truth, and no one denies that. We're just saying the people making the movie need to know better, and even if it's "law" by now, whitewashing and yellowface need to be changed.

Thanks for answering.

And we're totally wrong for calling Paramount out on casting white people into rolls that would be better filled by Asians, Latinos and/or Native Americans. A move that many fans and people of industry are citing as racist and calling for an end to such practices.

Heaven forbid we actually cared about this movie project and get upset when we see the studio, director, producers and casting agents do something that is clearly wrong and completely contrary to the message of the original story.
