Three actors, named Connor or Lucas or Hunter or something, have been cast in Kathryn Bigelow's upcoming film about the 1967 Detroit riots. John Boyega has already been announced as part of the cast, but Variety reports that the three potatoes pictured above "are expected to have the most screen time in the movie".
The riots happened because black Detroiters were lashing out against the segregation and discrimination in the city, precipated by a police raid on an unlicensed bar that served black patrons. The result? The army and national guard were called in, and black people were arrested and killed en masse.
And yet, if Variety is to be believed, the movie dramatizing the incident will focus on three white guys. Seriously, white Hollywood, seriously?
