Mike Epps has landed the role of Richard Pryor, Oprah will play the grandmother that raised and beat Richard. Looks like Ms. Winfrey is looking for the Oscar-role, now that she has Tyler running OWN with his own shows

suaviloquentia asked:
In additon to malcolminspace's answer, I would like to add that Edward James Olmos has the lead role and plays the Commander and Admiral of Battlestar Galatica. He's very central to the show and a father-figure to many of the characters. Olmos is Mexican and in the BSG universe he's Tauron, a darker skinned minority that's also faces oppression against (this is explored deeper in show's sequel Caprica).

Santoine: But does it fit our guidelines? Is Olmos a main character or supporting one?

malcolminspace asked:
Re: That anon ask about Battlestar. It is a show, not a movie. The main character is played by Edward James Olmos and there are several people of colour in prominent roles. Kandyse McClure, Grace Park and Rehka Sharma in particular. There's also Tahmoh Penikett, whose mother is First Nations (though I don't know how he identifies). The show is overall pretty white, but it doesn't rely on stereotypes (at least it doesn't appear so to me, but I'm a white dude and thus not authoritative).

Santoine: Can you clarify what you mean by ‘prominent roles’ (as according to our guidelines)?

Anonymous asked:
would the re-imagined Battlestar Galactica series be under consideration for making the list?

Santoine: the movie? we only list tv shows

My name is not Annie. It’s Quvenzhané.

Quvenzhané Wallis (then age 9) correcting an AP Reporter who said she was “just going to call her Annie” instead of learning how to pronounce her name. Never forget.  (via thechanelmuse)
