    If that's for real, not a joke, it is just incredible.

    Indeed. Here's the press release from the private casting company that actually produced the casting call in question:

    April 29, 2013

    In the casting profession we are often asked to find specific types for
    different roles. In this particular case we were asked to seek a cast
    of diversity. We mistakenly took that to mean that the production was
    not seeking Caucasian actors. This was a mistake that was made entirely
    by the casting company and not the CBC, who are seeking actors of all
    ethnicities for this role (including Caucasian). We deeply apologize for
    our presumptuous error and anyone we may have offended.

    Stephen Taylor is not the casting company. The CBC used an intermediary - I guess it's entirely up to you and the rest of the audience to interpret whether or not their excuse is believable considering the other correspondence that was received from the CBC as noted on the site.

    I know, and saw my editing sucked. I edited after my post to insert that Stepen Taylor is a conservative Canadian commentator, and that was what I was trying to add. The cursor jumped (I'll never get the hang of a trackpad) and then I sent it prematurely. When I saw the mistake I went back again to just remove the reference to Taylor entirely.

    i actually read the link and the updates in the original post. you still dishonour your family. They should have put you down the first time you shamed them. (I imagine you were quite young when that first happened) icon_lol.gif


    You lie you should die. icon_lol.gif


    Your family honor would immediately be restored. You know what to do.

    I laugh at the sheer number of threads stated by riddler where he is the first AND the last poster, and not a single person other person has posted.

    cracks me up.

    Actually I do admire riddler's persistence if this is just a voluntary compulsion of his.


    (It could be part of his job to spread disinformation on all sorts of sites, not just RJ. Who knows what dark nefarious things he could be up to?

    If one does not know the history of me and riddler, this does appear out of the blue - especially as I make such a point of avoiding riddlers threads.


    I do apologise for the extreme nature of the insult.

    It relates to the long history of postings of riddler where the articles ALWAYS state the direct opposite of what he titles the thread - i.e. he wuz trolling.


    So I trolled him. (this started about three years ago btw)


    He didn't like it when I first said "you tell lies! you shame your family!"

    he freaked out crying it was racist and it has been a running unfunny joke ever since. (started about three years ago -- I have just avoided his threads since as soon as I wrote them off as a waste of bandwidth and download time.

    the amount of such "waste threads" by riddler was in fact instrumental in my deciding RJ was not offering anything to draw me to the site for such a long time.

    (c.f. the various threads asking "where have all the voices gone?"

    Answer:

    we got bored with riddler and southbeach.

    What you have said in this thread is so far over the line, it's amazing. I don't know what your history is with riddler, but if anyone has shamed their family, it would certainly be you. The only excuse would be if you happen to be suffering from some maladies that would explain such behavior.


    The man is a stupid racist clown. It's kinda fun though watching him struggle for relevance. icon_smile.gif

    Perhaps they had a shortage of Orcs for their production?
