In the books, Roland is a white guy, but Elba sees that as a superficial description of the character. What’s more important is the character underneath:
“It’s better just to treat it like no big deal,” Elba answers. “There should be no difference. The character that was written in Stephen’s imagination, it could be any color. It just happens to be me and, you know? In the artwork, it just so happens to be a white guy, but I don’t think that makes any difference. … I think what’s great about it, if I want to say anything about it, is that it is a sign of the times in terms of a colorless society. People go, ‘A good actor is a good actor,’ you know?”
Did you see the thread with Pennywise?
And CELL is coming out too
Everyone freaked out when he got cast as a Norse god. "Everyone knows they're white!"
Elba was like, " You know they don't exist, right?"
It's kinda awful.

Critics Consensus: Shoddily crafted and devoid of suspense, Cell squanders a capable cast and Stephen King's once-prescient source material on a bland rehash of zombie cliches.

Oh no! I didn't realize it was out. You saw it? Book was great.
Book was great, and I had reserved hopes for the movie.
Me too I'll still see it....and probably enjoy it.
Yeah, you might be talking to someone I have on ignore. Your posts aren't adding up.
