Re: Mandarin Casting/Discussion Thread
I don't like the idea of a Chinese Stark, and certainly not rings in his spine. I'd want rings on his fingers and for the Mandarin not to be simply a business man. I'm not saying he has to look like Fu Manchu, but if he gets away from what makes him the Mandarin, then it's no longer the character. Even modern Chinese people sometimes wear ceremonial robes or traditional Chinese dress. That would hardly be racist.
