John Leguizamo slams James Franco's new role as Fidel Castro

https://instagram.com/p/Cg4h3zasT0J

John Leguizamo slammed the news that James Franco will be playing Fidel Castro on his Instagram. “How is this still going on?” the actor wrote. “How is Hollywood excluding us but stealing our narratives as well? No more appropriation Hollywood and streamers! Boycott! This F’d up! Plus seriously difficult story to tell without aggrandizement, which would be wrong! I don’t got a [problem] with Franco but he ain’t Latino!”

You should have a problem with Franco, John, but I can't expect everyone to keep up with everything, I guess.

That being said, the plot of this film sounds very interesting. Franco being cast as Fidel is absolutely absurd, for all the reasons.
I was about to say this. I appreciate calling out casting a non-Latinx actor in this role, but he's also a f*cking groomer and abuser.
Wow! Hope he gets flamed! What in the shit is this?
franco should have been blacklisted a long time ago.

hollywood is performative af.
I honestly forgot James Franco existed until I saw this casting news yesterday. How many fans does Hollywood even think he has in the year 2022? All of the replies to the tweet I looked at were negative.
you SHOULD havr a problem w him john, fuck you mean. he shouldve taken the opportunity to tell james go back to obscurity w his creepy revolting ass but men cant even do the bare minimum.


ia He had the perfect opportunity to also remind everyone what a fucking abuser he is and is still getting roles he doesn't deserve.

Chi Chi Rodriguez has spoken.

..I genuinely don't get why Franco. Because of the ~resemblance (?????)

Does he even have fans in this day and age? Is he a bankable face?? He had a James dean-esque like 20 years ago, which I used to get but now?!

I'm sure Latin America had tons of movie stars who could have gotten the role
they used phrenology for this casting and i wish i was joking
uh...
I... oh.
Ah.

I - ... i'm just gonna let it go because ooofff
*squints*
The REACHING omfg I can’t EVEN!!!!

I am laughing so hard rn at the absurdity of this nnnnnnn
No to this. When you're playing a RL personality the race should at least be in the ballpark.
Castro was white but yeah Franco sucks and needs to stay gone
This, right after the announcement of Shia's new film. I'm so glad cancel culture is definitely a real thing!!
this damn movie already seems like a mess tbh they're willing to hire a predator in a propaganda movie
I don’t got a [problem] with Franco

lmao you keep slaying me with these clodovil gifs 💕

John spoke on a webcast my company had during Hispanic Heritage Month last year and he was very real with the conversation. The old white boomer men did not particularly enjoy it 🤷🏽‍♀️
what's crazy to me is they knew they'd get backlash, so they prepared that insane 'facial structure' retort as if that's the fucking issue
I hope James Franco rots in hell. :)
