What is it with Hollywood?
With all the diversity in the US, why do they insist on giving roles of multicultural characters to the non-multicultural?
Do they really think that Jake Gyllenhaal – who has been cast to play the lead in the film adaptation of the hit video-game Prince of Persia: Sands of Time – will bring an authentic Persian feel to the character?
Yes, it’s true that Iranians come in many colors and sizes, but there’s absolutely nothing Persian about Jake. We like Gyllenhaal, but he doesn’t even resemble the picture emblazoned on the game series covers. Sad.
