    Apparently there is a new British TV series on Henry VIII, and they selected Jodie Turner-Smith to play Queen Anne Boleyn. I think they most definitely nailed the casting and the resemblance is uncanny. I'm looking forward to future Malcolm X biopic starring Jacky Chan and Nelson Mandela remakes featuring Mel Gibson.

    That article says it's re-imagining and isn't a period piece. I'm not sure if it might be a modern day re-imagining from reading it or not. It's not very clear.

    If it's set at the time then it's obviously historically inaccurate (but probably no more so than the amount of American accents British historical characters have had in movies), if it's a modern day version, then they can do what they want with it.

    Now imagine making a film about an African King like Oba Ewuare or Osei Kofi Tutu and casting them as a white man...

    Pretty typical of British media. Every TV show has a family with a white wife, black husband, Asian daughter, gay brother and trans alien.

    Ugh. I’m black and I hate this stuff.

    the show will tank anyway. All these crappy shows go nowhere.

    I like shoes where black people play black characters and white characters play white characters.

    Would you cast an Indian guy as Bruce Lee?

    I read something saying that apparently the modern American accent is closer to Medieval/Tudor English accents than modern English accents, so maybe that's more accurate.

    It's one thing to do this with fictional characters, but now for actual people?

    After the complaints rolled in about the lack of diversity in the Chernobyl series, it's a breath of fresh air to see shows in the UK maintaining historical accuracy.
