‘It’s racist in reverse’: Actor Brian Cox calls for white actors to be cast in black roles as he insists diversity cannot be ‘one way’

His role as the original Hannibal Lecter secured his place in Hollywood 30 years ago.

He is now one of our most respected actors. In his latest movie, Churchill, due for release in June, he plays the wartime Prime Minister.

Now, on the eve of the 89th Academy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles, Brian Cox has entered the ongoing Oscars ‘diversity’ debate by calling for white, not just black and Hispanic, actors to be given more varied roles in Hollywood.

Cox, who will not attend the Academy Awards tonight, said there should be no colour bar on roles.

I want Jerry Lewis to play Louis Farrakhan!

    One needs a sense of humour trying to watch the oscars and having all the left wing morality and dems view shoved down throats
    From the director of the academy to the wetbacks on the wall
    What a f ing. Disgrace. Watching for the professional awards and the Fashion
    And have to stomach all their bull shit politics
    Like living in Canada these days

    • I haven’t even had a look at the Oscar’s tonight.

        Nor have I. Went from Clancy and Makem to the Limeliters and now to Peer Gynt Suites. Not an Oscer among them.

        TV stations are still on the air?

        Do the people that still watch TV also have horses and buggy whips?

          Me and the wife got a PVR back in ’07. We almost never watch live TV anymore. As for the Oscar’s haven’t watched those since Titanic with Kate Winslet was in the running.

          Af course they have buggy whips – just in case they are told by their TV stations to use them on any conservative they find. Their horses are keep for the ‘Quartering’ of these same conservatives, and is not to be confused by the Quarter Horse breed. https://www.britannica.com/topic/drawing-and-quartering

    Jerry Lewis as Farrah khan, alright I guess. Such a shame Progressive Cultural Marxism hadn’t taken root decades earlier. Could you imagine the late incomperable Don Knotts in the role of Farrah khan? Oscar winning material for sure.

    I am still not wearing any pants!

    I think Mr Bean would make a splendid Louis Farrakhan

    Brian Cox is the best Lecter.

    Luvvies own goal at Oscars.
    The wrong envelope for best picture displaced from the news headlines Kimmel’s sniping at President Trump.

    create a term for this
    Reactionist Racism could be one.
    Or Reverse Racism?
    Force your terminology on the left, its a brutal weapon in political discourse.
