johnny Posted July 9, 2018 Share Posted July 9, 2018 https://www.google.com/amp/ew.com/movies/2018/07/07/scarlett-johansson-transgender-casting-controversy-rub-tug/amp/ do you guys think trans roles should only be given to trans actors? I see their point, and trans actors are severely underrepresented, but I also enjoy the acting part of acting and being able to see somebody undergo a transformation and deliver a great performance. I don’t think Dallas Buyers Club would be as good if they substituted Jared Leto for a lesser trans actor. If the trans actor is a great actor and fits what the director is going for, I think they should get it. But I don’t think it should be some exclusive thing either way. Hollywood is super white-washed but I think we can find some kind of balance where people get roles that are more “made for them” (for lack of a better word) and roles that let people do something different and challenging.
