Starring John Cho? Bring it on!

Great article and meme about how easy it should be to put non-white actors in any role. This issue is coming up more and more often: does every film role need to by played by a white man? Probably not.

So, why not have a film starring John Cho?

Recently, I have been watching the BBC series The Night Manager, where Olivia Coleman was playing the role of what had originally been a male part. But it really changes nothing to have the role played by a woman.

So, why not an Asian president, or a black James Bond? How much does it really change? The problem surely starts as a lack of imagination and keeping it safe rather than a lack of actors.
