ya me to and im sorry not to be racisist but i think aang needs to have paler skin
Asian American somewhere in there

I think I agree. However, it all depends on the actor for me. If the better actors are have a darker skin tone, then go with the better actors of course.

True but it depends on everything though, think about it:
Would you like a good actor to act out a part even though they look nothing like it? If Aang was something other than Asian I'm pretty sure most of the fans will be pissed off.
Then again, if it's an Asian actor who can't even speak proper English, that's quite frustrating too.

So it shouldn't "all" depend on the acting or the looks.

I thinking that if the actor is good and looks slightly similar to Aang then he should get the part. I mean you can change the look of a person but you can't change all the experience they have.

Yea, it's not an easy decision -- the producers, casting director and Night have some difficult choices to make in the next 1/2 a year or so.

I'm not sure.

I doubt Night and the producers are looking at that many, the casting director probably narrows it down for them.

That guy can not play Aang! I mean he's 17 his voice is way to deep and by the time the 3rd movie comes out he'll have a beard! On top of all that he looks nothing like Aang!

As for Sokka's actor, he's such a pretty boy. Yes I know Sokka is a bit of a pretty boy himself but he's also smart, funny, and tough, all  which this actor is not! I mean I don't want some metrosexual, spoiled, wimpy dude to play Sokka!

Agreed. Although I have to say he sort of look like Aang. Like maybe when Aang grows to be big 17 year old.
