Mini-Conan gets cast as well?

I never had time to write a CAST THIS column for Conan before the role went to Stargate Atlantis' Jason Momoa, and now the same role has been cast....again! Well, sort of.

Latino Review is reporting that the role of "Young Conan" has been given to 12 year-old Leo Howard, who you might remember as "Young Snake Eyes" in the incredibly useless subplot of the G.I. JOE movie this summer.

The kid has some pretty wicked martial arts skills for being 12, and I have to guess we'll be treated to at least one pint-sized fight scene before little Conan grows up into big, big Conan. According to LR, it's a pretty decent part and Howard will likely be the main focus of the first fifteen minutes of the film. It would be logical that he would have some pretty substantive scenes with Mickey Rourke, rumored to be playing Conan's father, if that bit of casting does actually come to fruition. 

Not a bad career start kid!

Just looking at that kid's ridiculous expression and that our Conan is a thin tan guy with little charisma kinda ruins my expectations for this.

Question

Okay I am just going to make an observation here. We have a white Dad, a white young Conan, then bam a black adult Conan? People are going to notice. I have no problem with the casting of Conan, except maybe the fact he is a known TV actor which may hurt his chances. And I know its a movie but people are not that dumb...well most aren't.

Im pretty sure the adult conan is mixed, At least i know he is not black as you claim it is obvious when you look at him. Unless you are boiling it down to the normal stupid conclusions people need to make. Therefore he can pull it off easier than you can ever think.

I guess his Mom (in the movie) could have been non white, but that still leaves a white bread kid and a mixed adult..just think its a stupid move...should have got a kid that looked more like him.
