5 White Voice Actors Who Left Their Roles as Animated Characters of Color (Photos)
This year, several white voice actors from animated series have decided to forego their roles as characters of color in order for them to be recast, in some cases, to actors of color. Here are some examples of shows where this happened, from "Big Mouth" to "The Simpsons." Hank Azaria as Apu on "The Simpsons" Azaria confirmed to reporters at Winter TCA earlier this year that he will no longer do the voice of Indian American convenience-store proprietor Apu Nahasapeemapetilon on "The Simpsons." Film producer Adi Shankar previously said that the show plans to drop the character altogether.
“If Barbara [Bond producer Barbara Broccoli] and Mike [co-producer Michael G. Wilson] were interested in that, I would absolutely jump at the opportunity," said Cavill, who can currently be seen playing Sherlock Holmes in Netflix's "Enola Holmes".
With recent rumours that Tom Hardy is now the frontrunner to take over for Craig, Cavill confessed that he still thirsts for the role.
“At this stage, it’s all up in the air. We’ll see what happens. But yes, I would love to play Bond, it would be very, very exciting,” he said.
Last year, Cavill toldthat when he auditioned for "Casino Royale", it ultimately came down to him and Craig.
He recalled the screen test, which required him to walk out of a bathroom wearing nothing but a towel in order to re-enact a scene from one of the Sean Connery Bond films. It did not go well.
“I probably could have prepared better,” Cavill told the magazine. “I remember the director, Martin Campbell, saying, ‘Looking a little chubby there, Henry.’ I didn’t know how to train or diet. And I’m glad Martin said something, because I respond well to truth. It helps me get better."
