“Boycott! This f’d up! Plus seriously difficult story to tell without aggrandizement, which would be wrong! I don’t got a [problem] with Franco but he ain’t Latino!”.
James Franco has been cast as Cuban revolutionary Fidel Castro in the independent film “Alina of Cuba.”.
EXCLUSIVE: James Franco will play Cuban leader Fidel Castro in Miguel Bardem’s ‘Aline of Cuba’ with Mía Maestro set to play Natalia “Naty” Revuelta, the Cuban-born socialite he has a passionate love affair with.
“Finding and convincing James Franco to play Castro was a fun and challenging process,” John Martinez O’Felan, the project’s lead creative producer of Austin-based Mankind Entertainment, said about the casting.
folks complaining but it seems fitting to have james franco play a dude who keeps getting a pass despite all the weird shit about him.
Ok so I’m not done with this James Franco casting news. Was Pedro Pascal unavailable? Although not Cuban, he makes a lot more sense on every level. He’s also related to Allende, a man Fidel Castro deeply admired and supported. Like…we’re talking one degree of separation here..
So Leguizamo can play Luigi in Super Mario Bros but James Franco can’t play Fidel Castro? 🤣 (Imagine a similar ‘debate’ around an Italian-American having to play a character from a computer game). Utter nonsense. The job of actors is to…act..

Who cares what John Leguizamo thinks? He isn’t even Cuban. Most of us will tell you that of all the potential issues with this film, James Franco not being Hispanic is the least concerning. Fidel Castro was the son of a European immigrant. A white actor can play him well..
