You have got to be kidding me

Due in theaters in summer 2010, "Airbender" has already begun to face a bit of controversy over the casting of white actors like Rathbone, Ringer and McCartney to play Asian characters — a concern the actor was quick to dismiss. "I think it's one of those things where I pull my hair up, shave the sides, and I definitely need a tan," he said of the transformation he'll go through to look more like Sokka. "It's one of those things where, hopefully, the audience will suspend disbelief a little bit."

(From here.)

I'll admit that he's got the attitude right for Sokka, but that line? Makes him sound like a douchebag. He's practically saying "Oh it's all right, I just need to put on a little blackface..."

EDIT: Also, holy crap he's 24 years old. Isn't Sokka supposed to be like 15???



I...I really want to go to Japan again this Golden Week. Both for the Gurren Lagann movie and this. I already saw the 12th Detective Conan movie in theaters, which was pretty awesome. But this...I really need to see this.

*starts saving money*

EDIT: Oh, and of course the new FMA anime will start in April too...jeez, suddenly there's so much to look forward to.

Grissom's last episode

So, Grissom left CSI tonight. I'm actually kinda relieved. I love the character and all, but Grissom's depression caused by everything dealing with Sara and Warrick was really bringing the show down this season. So while I didn't like the Grissom/Sara romance, it's nice to see him finally happy in his last scene. (I was a bit surprised to see that my mom actually cried at that. o_o;)

I'm looking forward to see how Laurence Fishburne will fit into the cast. I hope we'll see more of Greg, Hodges, and the new girl from now on too. I guess usually I'd think that a show should be over once three main cast members are gone, but the newer characters still have so much potential...

Hm. I've been posting a lot today, haven't I?
