Casting appreciation gif.
This seriously pisses me off because TWO men of the “correct” ethnicity/race were asked to play the role of Khan. I don’t remember their names because this back when Into Darkness was in casting yo but they BOTH DECLINED.
So there’s a HUGE difference between “well, we asked the best in the business and they both said no, so we should go with another actor of the ‘incorrect’ race who is also very well suited for the role” and doing what the Hunger Games did which is literally only let white girls audition for Katniss.
When actors decline there is fuckall you can do. It’s shitty, no doubt, that Khan ended up being white, but BC did a great job in the role, while knowing he was third choice. I won’t begrudge him for taking it, and I won’t begrudge the casting crew for going with him after their best actors declined.
Thank you for pointing this out, because I am so sick of people accusing the casting director and JJ Abrams of intentionally “white washing” the role of Khan. It’s such utter bullshit.
These hugs are the best in the whole world, the one where you hug someone and everything just feels right and perfect and it’s just the most amazing feeling in the world where it’s comforting and just I have no words for these types of hugs. So much better than those crappy one-handed things that pass for hugs these days.
I would wear the shit out of this. Important interview? let me put on my lord of the rings cardigan. Going to the cinema? two seconds let me find my lord of the rings cardigan. Funeral? Let me grieve in my lord of the rings cardigan. House party to attend? I wonder what will go well with my lord of the rings cardigan.
not a fan of these usually but I would wear this every fucking day.

I’VE FIGURED IT OUT.
In the Eleventh Hour, Rory’s badge reads:
Rory is 30ish during the Angels Take Manhattan episode.
He’s (presumably) sent back to 1938.
1990 - 1938 = 52 years, 52+30 = 82 years old
The date the badge was issued is the day he died.
Holy Mary, mother of fuck.
