Why Hollywood sucks at casting

It seems like every week and just about every show on television and almost every movie has a ridiculous ensemble cast. Keep in mind, I am not talking about a rag-tag cast that can bounce humor and chemistry off of one another like in the ABC show Modern Family or the every Will Ferrel movie but I am talking about films that will cast Vin Diesel as a nuclear physicist, Mike Meyers as a British General or Ice Cube as the next triple X. How about Denise Richards playing a nuclear physicist or Freddie Prinze, Jr., playing the blonde haired Fred in Scooby Doo.

You all know what I mean- remember Jake Gyllenhaal as the Prince of Persia- a diaster. Now recently, I was joining the bandwagon on the latest new fad- The Hunger Games, now anyone that has read the books knows the casting is way off beginning with the main character herself Katniss and trickling on down to the final character.

I know, we are not the only one that thinks that looks matter when getting the lead role and apparently in Hollywood as long as your white, with changeable eye color and hair color- then all is well. I am sorry many of these people are sleeping themselves into some of these roles because they don’t fit. I grow to see the day where an actor or actress is chosen by their looks and quality of acting. Its like interviewing for a new nuclear engineering job- you need many skills to fit the build.
