Re: Caleb Landry Jones cast as Banshee
Couldn't have said it better myself, PsyJ!
I guess they feel like some characters are more important than others, that only select few should have their proper heritages. I know each movie can't take 15 minutes to dive into each characters past, but why not let a character like Colossus who only has three or so spoken lines say them in a Russian accent? would it really have hurt? That's all I'm sayin'.
Some of the characters heritages are very defining to who they are, a la Nightcrawler being German. I can't fathom him showing up speaking American, or Scottish on that fact due to the casting of Alan Cumming, I'm very happy he was able to keep his German roots.
