Did you see Snow White and the Huntsman this weekend and happen to notice that the seven dwarfs aren't played by dwarfs?
Sure, they look like dwarfs in the movie, but only because the actors' limbs were digitally altered or their faces were digitally transplanted on able-bodied little people. The producers' decision to exclude any actual dwarfs from starring roles in the film has the Little People of America up in arms!
A rep from the nonprofit organization explained that Hollywood should be making an effort to cast actual little people as little people on screen, saying:
"This means both casting people with dwarfism as characters that were specifically written to be played by little people … and other roles that would be open to people of short stature."
While the dwarf actors were merely stand-ins, Bob Hoskins, Nick Frost and Ian McShane were cast to play characters who are half their size.
Do U think that Little People of America has a right to be angry over the casting choices or are Hollywood producers well within their rights to cast whomever they choose?
