Thirty-six years after the release of Roots, Levar Burton has some interesting thoughts and insights as to why the slave narrative is making a return. While Hollywood is pointing to these very films to prove their diversity, recent studies continue to show it’s all lip service. The same can’t be said for Sweden, which is putting its money where its mouth is (when it comes to sexual politics at least) and rating films based on their gender bias. Current heroine du jour Katniss Everdeen was almost played by Abigail Breslin. If that freaks you out, take a look at all the other actors almost cast in the blockbuster series. Lastly, want to know the only thing more fearsome than Katniss’ bow and arrow? Gwyneth Paltrow’s Graydon Carter-sized wrath.
