    That to me that is like people who criticized Samuel L. Jackson playing Nick Fury who has largely been a white character. He has been wonderful playing Fury. That is all that should matter. That the actor has a believable portrayal of the character

      It's a battle you can't really win. I'm for good actors getting good roles(especially since I am learning to be an actor right now), but at the same time, I would knock any director on the head who thinks Santa Claus should be played by someone of another ethnicity. Or heck, if someone tried to make a biopic of ME someday except I'm played by a black guy. Because news flash: Santa ain't Asian and I ain't black. It's not a "traditional" thing, it's just not who Santa is or who I am. It's like turning Bugs Bunny into a duck and saying "well, the duck played the role well and we do have a demographic to pander to so let's hire him!"

        How about Dennis Haysbert (the voice of the Allstate commercials), or Danny Glover? Or Ron Glass (Shepherd Book on "Firefly")?

          Could they really afford Danny Glover? He seems to high profile

            Probably not, but the other two are primarily TV actors, so maybe they could afford one of them.

              Ron Glass makes sense, plus he's a well known face to most TV show fans. Honestly at times I've expected him to show up on an Episode of Castle

                That I agree with. I really like using the Allstate guy

                    They're looking for someone with a british accent for Merlin, Ron Glass to me has it

                    They are also casting Rumples mother, currently named Evanna

                      All three are great black actors, but i would not like them to play Merlin. I just see him as a white male anglosaxon magician.

                        I saw the casting call for Evanna it looks like Rumple took after his daddy after reading what they wanted of her. I am very curious to see who gets the part and finally seeing his mother

                          Me too. But apparently the producers of Once are looking for an African American actor with a British accent, if that makes any sense. Shouldn't that be an "African British" actor?

                            Too bad Idris Elba is too busy for the next few years I could see him in the part of Merlin

                              And to me they are wrong for that.

                                I disagree unless race is going to play a part in the story. I don't see that being the case. Its the actor who plays the part the best no matter what his race is.
