Community·Posted on Apr 15, 2021Tell Us A Time Hollywood Really Missed The Mark On CastingLike wut...?by Simrin SinghBuzzFeed StaffFacebookPinterestTwitterMailLink We all love a good Netflix sesh, but sometimes Hollywood misses the mark and casts an actor who really doesn't fit the role. Disney Like when Sia cast Maddie Ziegler as an autistic teenager in her feature film, Music. Sia / Via youtu.be Maddie Ziegler, a non-disabled actor, was cast to play a nonverbal autistic person, despite the availability of actual autistic actors. Or when Jared Leto, who is cisgender, played a transgender woman in Dallas Buyers Club. Voltage Pictures / Via youtu.be Maybe you remember when Scarlett Johansson was cast as Motoko Kusanagi in the adaptation of Japanese manga series, Ghost in the Shell. Paramount Pictures / Via youtu.be Last time I checked, Johansson wasn't Japanese. This got me wondering, what other major casting blunder has Hollywood made? Tell us a time someone was cast who really didn't fit the role. You could be featured in a BuzzFeed Community post.
