Shortly after announcing his plans to direct a movie about first U.S. president George Washington, acclaimed director Steve McQueen (12 Years A Slave, Shame) revealed that he intended to cast Idris Elba, known for his roles in Pacific Rim, Thor, and the BBC program Luther, in the starring role.

The film, Washington, will chronicle the titular president’s life over the course of his eight years as President of the United States.

"I’m very excited for this project," McQueen told us. "It goes without saying, this was a monumentally significant period in history, and George Washington was, and continues to be, a very significant figure. I hope I can do it justice."

Following the announcement, the Twittersphere immediately went abuzz in confusion, outrage, and controversy. One person tweeted, “how can you cast a black man? washington was white #smh”. Another said, “damn hollywood. how u gonna change someone’s race? what if we did that 2 other races? they’d riot #hypocrisy”.

However, McQueen responded to this controversy, saying, “I understand it looks like an unusual decision. But at the end of the day, it wasn’t about casting someone who was the right race. We went with the person who was the most talented, the most qualified, and that just happened to be Idris [Elba]. I think people will agree when they watch the movie, he truly captures who Washington was on the inside.”

Washington is scheduled to release December 11, 2015.

Idris Elba Cast As George Washington In New Film

"what if we did that 2 other races? they’d riot" - I’m sorry, did you miss the part where they cast SIGOURNEY WEAVER AS AN ANCIENT EGYPTIAN QUEEN??? There is no ‘what if’, white film makers, casting agents, etc are already fucking doing this to literally every race that isn’t white.

let’s not even mention the fact that ya’ll turned JESUS into a white guy too hmmm?

(If this were real… It would be the only possible George Washington biopic that I would remotely be interested in watching.)

This is my perfect movie.

I did go to school for Marine Biology, but the cool thing is… the greatest thing for me is that Polynesians, our gods, Kahoali, Maui, all these water gods, so it’s really cool and a honor to be playing a [water] character. And there’s not too many brown superheroes, so I’m really looking forward to representing the Polynesians, the natives.

My family are some of the greatest water men on earth. I’m not, but I’m going to go train with them. But it’s really an honor just being a Polynesian. And water is the most important thing in this world and we all know it. It’s cool be a part of DC’s universe.

The ultimate dad joke compilation

THIS IS MY DAD HE DOES ALL OF THESE THINGS AND MORE

  • when i got an msn account i left it open like all the cool kids and somebody messaged me when he was checking something online and he was convinced they were a terrorist hacker and lectured them on how disappointed their mother must be in them
  • my brother (who just turned 17 today) asked for suggestions for his birthday wish and my dad said “a rise in gold stock”
  • he tucks in plaid shirts under his belt sometimes and doesn’t notice
  • he once bought us all brand new cordless phones because he was convinced they were the future because they had an answering machine that could do accents
  • thought an app on his phone he saw on tv could detect ghosts
  • he once shaved off his moustache, changed his glasses/hairstyle, and sat at the table making zombie noises to scare us as we walked downstairs because he was bored. it didn’t grow back for a month
  • whenever i want to fix a problem he directs me to the roll of electrical tape he gave me as a child
  • he “fixed” my computer when i was working on changing the power supply and all he did was lose the cord that put power to the blu ray reader. he still thinks he “fixed” it
  • his google search is zoomed in 200% but “that’s how it’s supposed to look”
  • he thinks ancient aliens is real because “the tv can’t show fake things about the illuminati” and yells at you if you remind him it’s fake
  • he shaved his moustache to look like “chaplin” (read: hitler) in the 90s to piss my mother off after a bet she lost and kept insisting it was a homage to charlie chaplin to everyone who asked
  • always answers the phone in different accents to throw people off
  • one time i got stranded in a blizzard at the mall without a coat or a phone and he circled the mall 4 times and missed me every time until i ran up to his car and flagged him down
  • he got everyone a “firetruck” calendar for christmas and claimed it was sexy firetrucks. we all thought he meant firefighters. it was literal pictures of firetrucks taken on a digital camera.
  • he showed up to the wrong house more than once to get me from sleeping over at my now-ex’s and was visibly upset when i didn’t answer the door

if i see one more shitty and condescending comic about how workers are all droid-like hiveminds wasting their life away while intellectuals and artists are the true shining beacons for us all to follow i’m going to smash up an art gallery with a hammer

Just be sure you name and film your performance piece so you can get away with it AND profit

I swear a lot of people would be less confused about their sexual orientation if they knew that romantic orientations were also a thing.

YES THIS IS TRUE. AND THAT THE TWO ORIENTATIONS DO NOT HAVE TO MATCH.
