that's what u get for letting your guard down around kids  ;x
I know very well the need for focus and vigilance when dealing with children. ( go visit my facebook..that will explain  ;o )
See the villain's larger eyes insinuating a just-off-normal perspective on how they see the world? I see signs Lucius Hunt; just not as you see dead people. I am so very happy we saw..each other, and no I will not tell you what color love is. Stop asking.

How do I find you on facebook? I'm not having much luck in finding you...

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Meh, I guess theres always a balance... I now have sarcoptes scabei, aka human mange or scabies... :-\

OMG kids are so crazy! I was just asked to watch over this 8 year old kid while his mom picked someone up... I was cooking macaroni for the kids, I went downstairs to go get the mix and my sister jokingly said for him to throw something at me... He took it literally, he threw a giant container of "maple syrup" at me! The container cracked and there was syrup all over the stairs and everything!!! :D

kids will be kids :P

Charaters were designed to be Asian. That's confirmed by the editors. Are they really going to cast Asian actors in the second part? I think there will be a problem. I am not being racist here and nor I have anything against Asians, but come on ASIAN actors in the whole movie? I think the second part will be doomed like 2002's HERO presented by QUENTIN TARANTINO.

Asian actors does not have cinematic impact when it comes to Cinema. I am talking about a movie's cast being Asians. There are superstars like Jet Li and Jackie Chan that brings money when they act in a American movie.

Can someone confirm this. I hope M.Night doesn't cast all Asian.

Hero is an excellent movie. Beautiful cinematography by Christopher Doyle too!

I don't diagree here. I have seen HERO. I agree with what Malcome stated. I don't think it was success in the box office. Now this all started with Asian actors being casted in TLA 2.

Well Rohan it's your sort of thinking that causes whitewashing in movies. I think the whole cast should have been Asian/Inuit. Why? You may ask. It's because the whole show is centered on Asian/Inuit culture. Why can't there be some actors that are representing for the rest of the minorities as the heroes? Avatar had the perfect opportunity for that.

I'm sorry, but Rohan, no one has been casted for TLA 2 yet.

What does the title of the this thread means? 

Designed to be Asian.

I don't really care what ethnic backround they have just as long as they look (almost exactly) like the character. Even saying that, it'd be more realistic if they did cast an Asian/Polynesian/Latino/Native American/Inuit for some roles. Roles I see that can pass as white are prolly characters in either Earth Kingdom/FireNation. They'd have to look similar though, and they'd prolly be a certain ethnic group like Slavic/Eastern European.

I disagree, I don't think white actors bring in more money at the box office, a better movie would do that.  
And just how do you get a better movie?  Cast people who look more like the characters of course.
