Celebrated Hollywood actor Samuel L Jackson has severely criticised the casting of black actors from Britain against American Blacks for the roles dealing with American race relations.
"There are a lot of black British actors in these movies, I tend to wonder what that movie would have been with an American brother who really feels that." Said Samuel L Jackson in a statement.
"Daniel grew up in a country where they've been interracial dating for a hundred years, what would a brother from America have made of that role? Some things are universal, but not everything." Samuel L Jackson stated further.
"There are some brothers in America who could have been in that movie who would have had a different idea about how King thinks," said the Avengers actor.
Samuel L Jackson also stated that the possible reason behind casting black British actors rather that taking up the American actors, is that the black British actors cost cheaper than those of their American counterparts.
"They're cheaper than us, for one thing. They don't cost as much. And they, casting agents and directors think they're better trained because they're classically trained." Samuel L Jackson explained.
However, Jackson's comments have been denounced by the renowned British actor John Boyega, when he said, "Black brits vs African American. A stupid ass conflict we don't have time for."
