Thousands of people aren’t happy with “Exodus: Gods and Kings” directorRidley Scott‘s decision to cast all white leads as Egyptians in the upcoming Biblical drama, but there’s a method to his madness: He just really likesChristian BaleandJoel Edgerton.
When asked to expand on his self-described “careful” casting of the 20th Century Fox Dec. 12 release, Scott toldYahoohe knew Bale “was the right actor for the role” of Moses.
“I was thinking about the idea of ‘Exodus’ and Moses being this kind of larger-than-life character who, at the same time, has to be played definitively as a very real person, that I thought of Christian and I knew he was the right actor for the role,” Scott said. “It’s not a fantasy. Ramses certainly wasn’t a fantasy and somewhere Moses is very much written down and indicated and believed. So it’s a real thing.”
right so moses was a real historical person so you cast a white welshman?? accuracy??? this makes zero sense on top of being racist bullshit.
