I’ve been looking forward to 21 for a while – it’s a movie about MIT students gaming blackjack tables at Vegas. The true story is chronicled in the book Bringing Down the House. Now, I expected the actors to be way hotter than 99.999% of MIT students, because beating people with the hot stick is what Hollywood does. But I didn’t really expect them to sink so low as to cast a white dude as the East Asian team leader. As ultrabrown says,
Are you kidding me? A movie about math, MIT and gambling, and the lead was made white? Have you ever seen the pai gow tables in Vegas? And this after the success of Harold and Kumar. One step forward, two steps back.
