I disagree with Ben Affleck playing Tony Mendez because Tony Mendez hadapart in making the film. He was excited to have Ben Affleck play him. The same probably goes for the French woman portrayed by Angelina Jolie. It is an honor to have an accomplished actor play you inafilm. The problem with white actors portraying random characters is that they start to playastereotype more thanacharacter. That is offensive. There isaclear difference.
