My mommy brought me home a bar of the elite exploding chocolate and I haven’t been so excited by a piece of candy in my life. Our kosher market doesn’t usually have it (they have other elite chocolates but not the exploding one) so I have no idea how she found it. But I have the bestest mommy ever guys.
mkay so Alex is wanting to do a fancasting thing in response to whitewashing of Bible films and stuff and so I wanted to do one
there is a film coming out directed by Darren Aronofsky called “Noah” and it’s about…Noah.
- and guess who Noah is. Just guess. >.> *sigh* Russell Crowe. *depression* Young Noah is being played by Dakota Goyo (mkay like white people PLEASE STOP WITH THE NAMING YOUR CHILDREN WITH NATIVE AMERICAN TRIBES)
he’s cute I’ll give him that but being a cute white boy doesn’t cut it
- Noah’s adopted daughter, Ila (
I AM PRETTY SURE THIS ISN’T IN THE BIBLE OR ANY MIDRASH I’VE HEARD OF correct me if I’m wrong)is played by Emma Watson. IK some of ya’ll love Harry Potter (AND YES ALEX IK YOU LOVE EMMA) BUT SHE IS A WHITE GIRL OMG NO DOES NOT WORK
KK THE POST IS GETTING LONG AS IS SO IMMA LIST THEM
- Noah’s wife (Naameh in the movie) is played by Jennifer Conelly
yet again a not really attractive guy has a moderately attractive wife WHAT GIVES
- Logan Lerman plays Ham >.> THIS WHITE BOY IS PLAYING THE FATHER OF ALMOST ALL PoC OMG I AM SO DONE
AND IF HE AND EMMA HAVE SCREENTIME TOGETHER SO G-D HELP ME
- Douglas Booth plays Shem. He looks sooooooo Semitic. *rolls eyes heavily*
- Ray Winstone as Tubal-Cain, Noah’s nemesis
except Tubal-Cain lived generations before Noah >.> unless he was 800 years old or something but lkaes;gsd
- Marton Csokas as Lamech ._.
- Anthony Hopkins as Methuselah *sigh*
- Madison Davenport as Na’el, Ham’s wife >.>
- Gavin Casalegno as young Shem.
that pretty face could be used for more useful things like… NOT WHITEWASHING
- Last but not least… Arianne Rineheart as EVE. WHITER THAN THE WHITEST WHITE.
LIKE FOR REAL OMG THIS CAST IS SO WHITE I AM CRYING RIGHT NOW
The hardest thing about this is that IDK ANY OLD MEN THAT ARE PoC that could play Noah >.> young Noah they find all these old MoC for wise props in movies but then when it comes to a star character all we have is old white men ._.
But Noah would have looked something like this (minus the hat, we’re talking antediluvian period, be creative)
Okay? Got that?
WAIT WAIT I GOT ONE ABHISHEK BACHCHAN COULD DO NOAH THEY CAN MAKE HIM LOOK RLLY OLD
Tanay Chheda for little Noah IDK
one thing IK is that a lot of South American ppl really do have that antideluvian period look, because they are MIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIXED like crazy IK a few guys from Guyana and they are so racially ambiguous are they Latin@? Arab? Indian!??!
Brazilian model Marlon Teixeira pulls this off so well (I fancast him as Ham)
(actually Marlon looks like one of those Guyanese guys I kid you not)
And Maybe Frida Pinto as Na’al?
I JUST REALIZED SOMETHING THEY DO NOT HAVE SHEM’S WIFE NOR DO THEY HAVE JAPHETH OR HIS WIFE WTH
maybe they haven’t casted yet but ohmygoshhh
JUST IN CASE Golshifte Farahani could play both Shem’s wife or Japheth’s wife
see? She can pull off the Middle-Eastern and Indo-European look OwO
And SPEAKING of Iranian actresses you can also have Shoreh Aghdashloo as Naamah :3
Other actors to consider (I’m getting lazy SMH)
YEAH BROWN PEOPLE
(actually I have schoolwork to do so I’m rushing this I spent too much time already afshagldshdik)
I’m so fucking pissed they picked literally the most Nordic Anglo motherfuckers to play the ancestors of all people like what? the??? fuck?? did they never look at a fucking globe smdh
other fancast suggestions (of people with middle-brown skin tones and appropriately diverse appearances that makes sense for people who are y’know the antecedents of everyone)! (haven’t thought of roles for everyone, tbqh it’s been a while since I read the story of Noach :/)
Oded Fehr (Israeli sabra! u3u)
Satya Bhabha (he’s a Mizrahi Jew and Parsi and he has a British accent and he’s basically an A+ cutie)
Rami Malek (Egyptian)
Imran Abbas (Pakistani)
Victor Ross (mixed, black and white)
Darren Criss (mixed- Filipino, Spanish, Irish, Chinese)
Adam Rodriguez (Latin@- Cuban and Puerto Rican)
Varun Dhawan (Indian)
Saleh Bakri (Palestinian)
Siddarth Malhotra (Indian) (I know you already posted him but damn)
Morena Baccarin (Brazilian- she’s actually a great actress who’s done so cool roles and so pretty and wow)
Taís Araújo (mixed - Brazilian, African, Austrian)
Israela Avtau (Ethiopian Israeli
um wow how are you even real???)
Natalie Portman (Israeli sabra!)
Esti Mamo (Ethiopian Israeli)
Leïla Bekhti (Algerian)
Hiam Abbass (Palestinian) (I can really imagine her as Noach’s wife, yes??)
I’m actually so angry about this.
Also, if Madison Davenport is playing the wife of Ham, isn’t she then also an ancestor of all POC? When looking at the face of the ancestor of all POC, your response should not be “I’ve never seen somebody so aggressively white in my life.” But that is what Clara said.
Like this is the whitest cast you can think of. And I’ve watched episodes of Lena Dunham’s Girls…
In June, 2013, high school students from the Interfaith Youth Leadership Initiative will travel to Washington DC to meet with policymakers to share our growing concerns with gun violence in our schools, places of worship, and communities. Our religious traditions encourage civic engagement. This issue is important to us because every day in the United States, approximately 300 people, including 65 children and teens, are injured or killed with guns in murders, assaults, suicides, and accidents. We believe that all human life is sacred, and as people of faith and conscience, we believe we have a duty to help make our country as safe as possible. The correction to violence is peace, and peacemaking stands at the heart of all of our religious traditions. We recommend that our elected officials enact common sense gun safety laws to help stop this tide of violence.
We’re meeting with policy makers next week, so please sign this petition. Every signature adds weight to our message!
Les Mis - Passover - The Maccabeats
We are a group of interfaith high school students traveling to Washington DC in June to advocate against gun violence. We will be meeting with elected officials and religious advocacy groups to learn how we can affect civic discourse and policy. Help us raise money for our trip!
Hey guys! So this summer, there is this amazing trip to Washington D.C. this summer with an amazing interfaith group of high school students to discuss gun policy with various officials and groups. However, as I’m sure you can imagine, sending 7 high school students across the country isn’t cheap (especially when you need to account for all the pork-free marshmallows the Jewish and Muslim kids are “using to bond”. those are expensive). The group isn’t asking for donations, but any purchase of this shirt will help them pay for this amazing opportunity, and you get a really cool shirt in return (it has an awesome anti-violence quote and the knotted gun from outside the U.N. building). Plus, in addition to supporting an Anti-Gun-Violence cause, you’re supporting an amazing opportunity for interfaith cooperation between teenagers. Please support!
And he definitely knows what a big deal it is to say that. I’ve never gotten a compliment that amazing before…
