Killer Casting

Sep 9, 2022

When news broke that actor James Franco had been cast as Fidel Castro in the indie film "Alina of Cuba", a lot of people had A LOT to say about it. Some people (like actor John Leguizamo) were appalled, and some (comedian Bill Maher) were appalled that people were appalled.

So why is authentic representation in film and television so important to some and not to others. Lisa sits down with legendary casting director Carla Hool and multi-hyphenate powerhouse actor/producer/casting director Elaine Del Valle to discuss why this subject strikes so deeply in the Latin and Hispanic communities.  

Lisa and Carla compare notes on the actors at the top of THEIR list for the role of Fidel Castro. Don't miss it!
