Dev Patel Vs. Racist Hollywood

| Filed under: Icky Icky PooFilm Flickers

Who knew that The Last Airbender would be the last big role for Dev Patel?

Slumdog Millionaire star Dev Patel is angry with Hollywood because he is not getting offered substantial roles. Here’s what Dev had to say about it:

"Because Slumdog was such a big hit there was a lot of pressure in terms of what I did next. For my second film I wanted a role that would stretch me, but all I was getting offered were stereotypical parts like the goofy Indian sidekick.”

Not cool, Hollywood not cool. More from Dev:

"Asian actors tend not to be sent Hollywood scripts that are substantial or challenging. I'm likely to be offered the roles of a terrorist, cab driver and smart geek… I want to show that I have versatility. You have to remember that, before Slumdog, the last film about India that went big at the Oscars was Gandhi, as played by Ben Kingsley. The fact that me and Freida have any kind of platform in Hollywood is a big step forward."

And finally:

"I'm buzzing with adrenaline and raring to go, but I have to be realistic. Being an Asian actor, it's never going to be easy. Hopefully the industry is changing and the casting directors will be less focused on colour so that people like myself can get through the door."

Unfortunately for Dev Patel, choosing The Last Airbender as his second film has only caused further problems. The film has been a source of protest, and it’s been accused of racism for having white actors play roles that were Asian in the original cartoon show.

We hope things change for the better too, Dev!

Do U think Hollywood is racist?

    The roles he wants are going to go to the top 3-4 actors in Hollywood. Surely racism is part of that, but it's also a numbers game - everyone wants the juicy roles, and only one person can be the star of the movie.



  2. 2

    Nothing new.



  3. 3

    Yes. We are ruled by Euro-american culture that defines minorities as specific identities. Change is often unwelcomed. People like and will always gravitate towards the familiar, directors and audiences alike.



  4. 4

    Um…this is hollywood…suck it up or go home



  5. 5

    Maybe it's time to come back to the UK Dev! I have co-written an Asian sitcom with my Indian fiance that we'd love you to play the lead in. I think you'd like it :) If you wanna know more email me - alicecarderpr@hotmail.com Alice x



  6. 6

    why does he keep referring to himself as asian? hes a fucking indian



  7. 7

    Quit whining. Woe is me just ticks me off. Suck it up and show em' what you got one way or the other. Don't cry. Show them what you are made of.



  8. 8

    Hollywood is very racist. You hardly ever see Black, Asian, or Indian actors in big films. They always end up being in films with an all Black cast, or all Asian cast ect. And honestly, how many White people are in a hurry to see a movie with an all Black cast? It sucks, but that's the reality of it.



  9. 9

    Dev Patel doesn't get roles because he's a SHITTY actor not because of his race. The only reason he is known is BECAUSE of his race!! If he wasn't a skinny Indian kid he'd never have been in the overrated Slumdog.

    He was downright embarassing to watch in Last Airbender and should be thanking his lucky stars he even booked that role because it should have gone to a real Asian aka 'oriental Asian' just like in the cartoon. M.Night fucked that movie up BIGTIME.

    Patel needs to shut his mouth and work harder.



  10. 10

    of course hollywood is very racist

    they are hypocrites
    they celebrate diveristy left and right but when it comes time to hire actors or whatever, they show their true colors.

    yes hollywood is still very racist

    Is hollywood racist? Is that a serious question? Duh, Hollywood's always been racist. Minority roles r limited unless it's a movie directed towards a minority demographic. But he really should just keep going & trying. There r some minorities that have managed to make it into mainstream hollywood movies.



  12. 12

    yeah hollywood is probably racist but this kid has had more success that most actors of any color will ever have. he should be thankful to get any work at all.



  13. 13

    VERY RACIST.

    I have called for auditions and the receptionists have told me "SORRY, THIS IS ONLY FOR PEOPLE WITH AN AMERICAN ACCENT" and hung up on me.



  14. 14

    Right now Asians make up a very small percentage of the population as a whole. As their numbers grow, so will the roles offered to them by MAINSTREAM Hollywood. I wonder how I would do if I were a Caucasian actor looking for work in India.



  15. 15

    I believe him. Too bad, because I'd prob see a movie because he was in it. Plus, he's so fucking attractive. He's hot.



  16. 16

    As an agent, finding roles for my Asian actors is challenging - especially for East Indians (who ARE Asians - for the idiot saying he's not Asian!). For mainstream commercials and lead roles in TV & film, it is a limited market. Apart from roles for 'doctors' and lab assistants! It dismays me, but it is very obvious. It's still a white bread world in the US media. That's a fact, and a reflection of ignorance and people's ideas of normality.



  17. 17

    Is Hollywood racist… Does a bear shit in the woods?



  18. 18

    Re: shittin_condoms – STUPID. India is in Asia. So Indian is an Asian, too. Same goes to China. China is in Asia, so Chinese is an Asian. So the same goes to Malaysia. Malaysia is in Asia so that makes Malay, Chinese, Indian, Iban, Melanau, Pujabs, Kadazan, etc. (regarless of religion & race) as Asian, too. Stupid! Go back to school! Do you want me to cover your room with an atlas?



  19. 19

    People…..unfortunately for your pro-racist beliefs, we live in a capitalistic entertainment society. If it made money, Hollywood would make it. I don't think it has much of anything to do with racism as it has to do with people not wanting to watch or buy it.



  20. 20

    Lol calm down Anwar …Slumdog Millionare wasn't all that great anwyay



  21. 21

    Re: shittin_condoms – for your information, India is in Asia so yeah, he can call himself Asian, cause unlike what stupid people think Asian is not only Japanese or Chinese. GO BACK TO SCHOOL U IDIOT!!!



  22. 22

    The he should write his own script. Or is he not as talented as he claims. Geez, 1 hit movie and he thinks Hollywood should be kissing his ass.



  23. 23

    Re: Anita Tahir – STFU

    why can't he just say he is Indian? He is from INDIA after all, I guess hes embarrassed



  24. 24

    What the hell is he complaining about!? If he's so unhappy he could always go star in a movie in his country. People make me sick bitching about things. He's not even Asian he's frecking like middle eastern. "America this Americans that" fucking leave then!



  25. 25

    who?



  26. 26

    Of course Hollywood is racist, but being realistic, there are not a lot of substantial roles for Asian actors. Acting roles are not equal opportunity. They are looking for people to portray certain characters. So actors/actresses have to look a certain way and act a certain way. If he is Indian, most of the roles being offered are going to roles expected for an Indian character.



  27. 27

    Of course Hollywood is racist! It's always been racist… Most people say it isn't but look at all the stereotypes that people of color get put into

    Re: shittin_condoms – India is in Asia you idiot. Besides, he's English.



  30. 30

    Re: shittin_condoms – Indians are asian and are referred to as such everywhere else outside of America dumbass..



  31. 31

    shittin_condoms, I thought so too a while back. China, Korea, Nepal, India…they're all in Asia. Anyway I say he shouldn't worry too much. African Americans did it, Latinos and there's this cute little Asian comedy coming to tv soon. He just needs to be patient like the other actors. It will happen for him.



  32. 32

    maybe if he were a better actor and not so ugly



  33. 33

    Hollywood isn't racist. It is what it is - stars get cast based on several factors, and if you aren't it then you aren't it. He needs to stop his bitchin'.



  34. 34

    he's asian? i thought he was indian. well i never saw slumdog mill so i guess i wouldn't know



  35. 35

    Is Hollywood racist? Um…yeah. Nothing he said is new. This has been going on for years. Although Hollywood is better than it was in the 1950s it still has a long way to go. I'm glad he finally spoke out and openly said something!



  36. 36

    America has 80% white people who will go out to see people who look like them. Maybe Will Smith and Denzel Washingtons are exceptions because white people like them. But for the most part if you're a minority, it doesn't matter if you were in one film that did well, that's just going to be looked as an isolated moment. Asians and indians have the toughest time because there are so many stereotypes used in hollywood films. Patel can't expect to get the Brad Pitt roles because people in America are so obsessed with race. It takes a lot to be looked at as something more than your minority, and you don't have Will Smith's charisma, man.



  37. 37

    Of course Hollywood is racist. Is that even a question? There is no doubt. But I saw The Last Airbender and Dev wasn't that great (and maybe he shouldn't have been a part of a movie where the main character was supposed to be Asian instead was white, and a bad actor too. Damn, that kid was bad.:( ).

    Re: shittin_condoms – no idiot because some people say the continent were from …u know us Americans? under your term we shouldnt call ourself americans because well were from the U.S……an American is any that lives in the continent or continents (depending were your from) that is America…ur just trying to hide the fact you made a completely idiotic mistake dumb fucker



  41. 41

    It's always white,black,latino,white,black,latino ….never Asian!

    42

    Since commenting earlier, I have thought about how much I would like to see more of Dev on the screen. Although some have said he's a bad actor, he's a very attractive guy. I hope he and other nonwhite actors are considered for non-stereotypical roles. Writing and casting would benefit from being more diverse.



  43. 43

    about time someone said it.



  44. 44

    Re: shittin_condoms – learn your continents shit for brains.



  46. 46

    Hollywood has always been racist towards Asians. Asian Americans have been in this country for over 250 years and these monkey ass producers and casting agents still stereotype the hell out of us. They've done this with blacks gays and hispanics until each of these groups went all civil rights on the racist bastards in hollywood. It wasn't but 15 years ago that gays, blacks and hispanics were bitching about the same issue that Asians are now complaining about. Asians need to band together as a group and draw the line on these racist bastards. This isn't Europe or Israel. If you aholes in hollywood need to white wash everything , go back to europe or Israel to do it.



  47. 47

    dev we could have told u that hololywood is racist and sexist……..



  48. 48

    Re: shittin_condoms – i was thinking the same thing



  49. 49

    Re: Not my gumdrop buttons! – really what world are u living in hollywood has always been racist, and most roles are based on stereotypes if you are not white. Look at the roles blacks and any other minories has won oscars for. Denzel, played better characters and he always win with the crazy roles same as halle berry..



  50. 50

    Re: shittin_condoms – You're an ignorant idiot.



  51. 51

    Totally on target, same reason I refuse to watch the twilight series with the wolf crew and TL being cast…what a joke. Get real Hollywood I thought the polish went out in the 7o's…NOT!



  52. 52

    George lucas made 6 star wars movie based on mostly Asian culture and I didn't see a single Asian male in any of those movies. Were there no Asians in space when he made them in the 1970's and 1980s or in the 2000's? Holywood has always been racist towards Asian Americans and we are fed up with it. Asian Americans have been in this country for over 250 years. There has been an Asian American in every single American war since the American Civil War and they still won't portray us as Americans. This is as shameful and racist as it gets. BTW, Yoda is a 3 foot troll. A 3 foot troll!!!



  53. 53

    Re: kbcrocks – wow i hope youre just being sarcastic…
    you really make americans look bad by being so ignorant to think that indians and people from the middles east are the same thing



  54. 54

    Dev Patel and M Night S Sold out and now he's complaining about this? He and his buddy should have done the right thing and not what racist ass Hollywood told them to do when they made the Last Racebender movie. All these idiots are doing are shooting themselves in the foot and then complaining about it. I am tired of all this white washing that's done in Hollywood when it pertains to Asian American characters. I heard they are going to make a Genghis Kahn Movie with Mickey Rourke as the lead. This is effing 2010 idiots. Get with the f%cking program. Like I said before if you guys want to white wash your movies go back to Europe and Israel to do it. You can make it into any white language you want to make it in. Please stop commiting cultural theft when it comes to using Asian culture and leaching off of us for your profit. It is racist and pathetic.

    56

    Are Asian actors like Del even on Hollywood's radar? Apart from playing terr or ists? I'm sure if there was a part, they'd let him audition for it. As it is, he can talk to M. Knight Shymalan (who was born in India but raised in Philly), or fund and produce his own movie, or head to Bollywood where there are probably tons of roles for him.



  57. 57

    wow people are stupid. his nationality is indian. india is in asia, technically hes asian u fucking stupid asses. redneck fucks, and hollywood is racist, but so is all of america soo..



  58. 58

    of course hollywood is racist! that's where mel gibson learned it all! if you are not american or really really good looking then you are fucked up



  59. 59

    Re: shittin_condoms – Because India is part of Asia, dumbass.



  60. 60

    To the idiot with the vular name shittin_condoms…India IS in Asia therefore Indians may refer to themselves as Asian you moron. In fact, in England where Dev Patel originates from, Indians are those refered to as Asian while the Chinese, Japanese, and Koreans etc are refered to as Oriental. In reference to Dev's belief that Hollywood is racist, it sure is. It will be next to impossible for him to make it big but if anyone has a shot he sure does. I am Indian (OR ASIAN) myself and I too would find it hard to find any roles depicting myself as anything but a doctor or what not. Although recently I've seen more Asian actors hitting the Hollywood scene, Dev Patel and Frieda Pinto being two of them. Also I noticed on a show called Sons of Toucson, one of the female leads is played by a woman of Indian descent which was nice to see. Bend it like Beckham FTW!



  61. 61

    This Indian guy, Dev Patel, is from the continent of Asia but was born in the country of India. Most people describe themselves based on their nationality. In this case hes Indian. For example, I'm Mexican. I never go around saying that I'm an American from the country of Mexico. To most people I'm not an American even though I was born in the continent of America. I relate to my COUNTRY of origin which is Mexico.



  62. 62

    Asian? Maybe in the U.K.



  63. 63

    Hollywood is all about business. They make what they hope will sell. Full stop.



  64. 64

    Re: Senorita Latina – EXACTLY and thank you.

    To everyone crying about my comment do you think someone from Brazil is going to say they're American? No, they will introduce themselves as Brazilian. Thats not how people talk, at least here, where he wants to be famous so he better fucking man up and stop being a self loathing bitch.



  65. 65

    Re: Senorita Latina – True but he is referring to the lack of film roles for Asian people in general. You don't see a lot of Japanese, chinese, malay, pakistanis etc. in films. He is from Asia so what's wrong with him saying he is Asian….



  66. 66

    Re: kbcrocks – you are an idiot.



  67. 67

    Re: jaksonx – lol. Theres nothing wrong with that. Hes right actually, Hollywood sucks! lol. I just thought it was a bit odd he kept calling himself Asian. Most Indian people that Ive met in America often refer to themselves as Indian not Asian. Actually, I live in a city with a large Indian community and they have never introduced themselves to me as Asians, thats all. Im not saying hes wrong, Im just saying it sounds a bit off? I dont know, that's just my personal opinion. :) )))



  68. 68

    FYI PPL…. INDIA IS IN ASIA …. another FYI PPL east indian ppl in the UK are known as ASIANS… AND HE IS FROM THE UK



  69. 69

    and hollywood is totally racist… the first indian/asian person to even break into the media in the US is jay sean… wow! behind the times are we?

    Re: Lady guyguy
    Then you go to a speech/accent coach. Robert Pattinson can turn it on and off-English to British. He had to work hard, but he accomplished it.
    There are others with non-English accents as well. Don't cry about it, DO something about it!

    71

    Re. Shittin_Condoms and Senorita Latina, I think you are missing the point of the article here. It is referring to the prevalence of racism in Hollywood and NOT the fact that Dev Patel refers to himself as an asian… which by the way in the majority of the world (minus yourselves!) would be deemed correct. Senorita Latina, it is geographically correct to refer to you as a South Amerian, since Mexico resides in that particular continent.

    Steering the discussion back to the real issue at hand, yes Hollywood is 'racist' but as an 'Asian' myself, I don't believe that this is a wholey contributing factor for the lack of roles. I think with talent and perserverance an actor/actress can help mould and develop the industry. It is only a matter of time! :)

    Re: shittin_condoms – Actually idiot he was born in England in case you were wondering that's in Europe.

    Re: GMuru – mmm, actually last time I checked Mexico was part of North America. Have you heard of the NAFTA treaty? And in Mexico there is no division between North/South America, it is just America, so I'm not necessarily incorrect. I'm not missing any point, I get the gist of the article, Im just pointing out the fact that hes in an Indian guy and he keeps referring himself as Asian and I believe to most ppl in the U.S., it doesnt sound right, even though he actually is from the continent of Asia, thats all. And, as a minority I think its great that hes pointing out these racist issues! But thanks for the info! Now I know some stuff I didn't know before. Like, Indians refer themselves as Asians in the UK. Live and learn! :)



  77. 77

    I understand how he feels, but his comment is a little off the mark.

    If he accuses Hollywood of being 'racist', he should refer to himself as Indian (racially), and not Asian (geographically). You don't really hear Latinos referring to themselves as Cuban, Puerto Rican or Mexican, do you? They just refer to themselves as Latino (racially). I don't understand why Indians don't like to refer to themselves as Indians. If they're from the UK, they refer to themselves as British. If they're from New York, they refer to themselves as Americans. I suppose Indians don't like referring to themselves as Indians.

    Anyway, Hollywood follows formulas that MAKE MONEY. And its the AUDIENCE that decides which films make money. Generally, it's a movie's context/story/background that brings in the AUDIENCES, not the actor. IE. The Matrix, The Hangover, Harry Potter, Twilight, My Big Fat Greek Wedding, X-Men, etc… Take X-Men for example; you think people flocked to it because the actors were mostly white? No, they flocked to it because it's the FUCKING X-MEN!

    It's not about race; it's about money. He should stop being an insecure whiner.



  78. 78

    OMG FOR ALL THOSE WHO SAY INDIA IS A PART OF ASIA YES YOU ARE RIGHT BUT THAT’S LIKE AN ARAB CALLING THEMSELVS ASIAN! OR A RUSSIAN CALLING THEMSELVES ASIAN! NO ONE DOES THAT! BUT I GUESS INDIANS DO BECAUSE THEY ARE ASHAMED OF BEING INDIAN!! AND THAT AVATAR ROLE SHOULD HAVE GONE TO A REAL ASIAN AN ORIENTAL ONE! AND WE ALL KNOW IT AND M. NIGHT DID FUCK UP THAT MOVIE NOT ONLY BECUZ HE HAD INDIANS PLAY ROLES THAT ORIENTAL ASIANS SHOULD HAVE (LIKE THE CARTOON!!) BUT HE ALSO HAD CAUCASIANS PLAY ROLES THAT ORIENTAL ASIANS SHOULD HAVE AND THAT IS THE TRUTH.



  79. 79

    Totally agree w/ Dev. Hollywood is racist and should bloody change their ways.
    And Dev is a British Asian. Period.



  80. 80

    Re: shittin_condoms – In the UK we call Indians Asians, that's why he's referring to himself as Asian and in America you refer to Chinese people as Asians, that's why.

    Oh STFU!! We are all so freaking tired of this bulls*it racism claim!! For F*ck sake! All that's on TV or in movies are minorities! Get the F' over it already! Have some dignity! Bwaaaaa, I didn't get my way, so it was racism. Bwaaaaaa, Bwaaaaa. STFU!

  84. 84

    in england, generally people from india, pakistan, etc are referred to as asians. aka south asians.
    whereas in north america, if you call someone asian, you usually mean someone who is east asian, like chinese, japanese, korean.
    since dev patel is from england, this makes sense why he is referring to himself as asian.
    but as others have said before me, of course he can call himself asian, because he's from asia damn. even israel is asian people.

    but anyways yeah. hollywood sucks.



  85. 85

    Hollywood has always been filled with racists and BS Artist. Everytime some race or Gays asked Hollywood for more screen time or better representation, they drag out the same excuse out. We make what sells. Apparenetly 15 years ago, blacks weren't sellable and if you were gay and came out, they took away your career. Well, all these groups told Hollywood to F themselves and made them cast more roles for blacks and Gays. 15 years later there's a rediculous amount of blacks and Gays on TV and it didn't affect the ratings one bit. Apparently, Americans don't care about the race or sexual orientation of the characters or storylines that they watch but rather the production quality of it. If racists in Hollywood were really able to get away with the same excuse that they used on blacks, gays and hispanics, the whole enitre media would be all white and we'd have 1950's culture on TV. Go sell your racist excuses to somebody who'll buy your BS.



  86. 86

    Dev Patel is a fucking retard. Boo Hoo I am in movies and my life is so hard. Boo Hoo. STFU. Just be glad you're in anything that's not a convenience store. Some people have to work much less glamorous jobs and are happy to have them. Stop making excuses and impress some people if you want to get ahead. BTW the last Airbender was a terrible choice if you are bitching about serious roles.



  87. 87

    big fan! luck :)



  88. 88

    They should offer him the role of the nerdy dude in the remake of "Short Circuit"

    Ben Kingsley got Gandhi cause he was Indian yes, but he also got it cause he was THAT good. Never heard him complain. You want real versatility? (see house of… sand and fog nearly 25 years later) don't blame the system, transcend. Oh, and Dev, it's SIR Kingsley to you, son. Get with it.

    Also, for the record: Slumdog was a bollywood movie in english - formulaic mush. what does everyone remember? the damn jai ho song. I didnt see him complain when he got "typecast" as the indian slumdog. dont bite the hand that feeds you D-lister.



  89. 89

    Ben Kingsly is only half indian. If ben was full Indian, he probably wouldn't have a career in Hollywood. Tells you how racist the media is. BTW, the guy who played the Inidan guy in short circuit was a Jew. Also tells you the kind of racism that goes on in Hollywood. Dev is a Hypocrite though and so is M Night. Both these guys were Ok with Hollywood telling them to race bend the cast of Airbender yet will go on and bitch about an issue that he actually took part in creating.



  90. 90

    He's ugly that's why. We want to watch good looking guys on the big screeen like Jackie Chan. I watch all his movies even though they pretty much suck.



  91. 91

    RACIST..that's an understatement.

AMERICANS AREN'T ALWAYS RIGHT!!



  95. 95

    racist, really??? race has nothing to do with it, it's all about LOOKS and you don't have the face to be anything but the "goofy sidekick" in a movie. And last I checked, you ARE asian, so what's so terrible about playing that role? Sorry, you don't see a black guy trying to play the role of a white guy, and you don't really see a white guy playing the role of a black guy. You better take whatever's offered to you, because chances are, you won't *star* in a movie again.
