Red Tails cast

04.06.2009

If you haven't seen much of Cuba Gooding Jr in his post-Oscar career, it's because he's been spending a lot of it on video store shelves with guys like Dolph Lundgren and Steven Seagal.

George Lucas apparently wants to change that, as he's cast him in the WWII movie RED TAILS, which chronicles the story of the Tuskegee Airmen, the legendary group of African Americans who were the first black pilots in the US military (Cuba's second tour with them, after the 1995 HBO movie).

The cast has also added ex-Rhodes Terrence Howard and Bryan Cranston ("BREAKING BAD"), who join Nate Parker, David Oyelowo, Tristan Wilds, Method Man, Lee Tergesen, Ne-Yo, Elijah Kelley, Andre Royo and Jesse Williams.

Anthony Hemingway is directing, with Lucas producing and financing (which is probably for the best, since otherwise the Tuskegees would end up having unusually high midichlorian counts or build famous droids or something).

Extra Tidbit: Cranston briefly appeared as a one-armed colonel in SAVING PRIVATE RYAN.

IF J.HUDSON, WHY NOT NE-YO?

Once Jennifer Hudson, an American Idol reject won an Oscar, I totally lost respect for the whole industry. Ne-Yo an actor? What? Did the world run out of talented actors, and now we have to get every pop star in a film. What's next? Basketball players? OH WAIT! That's right. Why not cast Shaq? He's a big ass dude. Who needs an aircraft carrier? Just have Shaq toss each plane in the air.

GioFace?

I love that the guy expresses his relative dislike for the story of the Tuskegee Airmen, and then immediately cites his love for one of the only white actors cast in the film.

This is the final nail in George Lucas's film career coffin.

Can't you guys see it now? Emotional, politically racial moments about african-americans rising to glory in WWII with extremeley campy dialogue spoken by Cuba Gooding Jr, Method Man and Neyo?

Followed by a 42 minute completely CGI dogfight sequence where Neyo sits in a 4 by 2 foot tall garbage can behind the cockpit to simulate R2-D2.

I'm waiting for the special edition in 15 years where Lucas changes the characters from

I'm waiting for the special edition in 15 years where Lucas changes the characters from black to white because it's what he always wanted to do, he just didn't have the technology.

Yeah, definitely already did this. HBO TV movie called "Tuskegee Airmen." It'd work if it was a small role. Weird.
