Avatar: The Last Airbender

Okay, so I'm posting something here just for the record. And to set something straight.

And that is...


Dev Patel is definitely NOT Prince Zuko. No. Freaking. Way.

What are the casting directors, blind? You can't just slap some fake-burns makeup on his face and say "Nah, here's your Prince Zuko, Mr. Shyamalan".

I mean, come on. I thought Hollywood was better at casting young, unknown hopefuls who miraculously fit the description/drawing/animation of a character.

So there's all this 'controversy' about them initially casting Jesse McCartney for the role, but then the fans got all bitchy because he was white. Frankly, I think Jesse would probably do a better job.

See what I mean? Besides the hair colour (which can be easily solved), he totally has the prince-with-a-tortured-past look. Not to mention he is totally hot just like Zuko in season 3 of the animation.

Or they could have checked under 'cosplayers'. Maybe then they'd find this guy.


The rest of the cast? Not much to say there, although I guess the kid playing Aang is pretty cute.

Recap: Laura likes Zuko from the animation, not the Dev Patel version. In case you didn't get it the first time around.
