Tim Burton Addresses Lack of Diversity in Casting

Tim Burton has been criticized for lack of diversity in casting with regards to his new film Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.

Samuel L. Jackson does star in the film, but the large ensemble cast of the movie consists of mostly white actors.

“Nowadays, people are talking about it more,” Tim, 58, told Bustle of diversity in film. “…things either call for things, or they don’t. I remember back when I was a child watching The Brady Bunch and they started to get all politically correct, like, OK, let’s have an Asian child and a black — I used to get more offended by that than just — I grew up watching blaxploitation movies, right? And I said, that’s great. I didn’t go like, OK, there should be more white people in these movies.”

Samuel said he “noticed it,” but the lack of diversity in Tim‘s cannon of films didn’t deter him from tackling the role of Barron in the movies.

“I had to go back in my head and go, how many black characters have been in Tim Burton movies? And I may have been the first, I don’t know, or the most prominent in that particular way, but it happens the way it happens. I don’t think it’s any fault of his or his method of storytelling, it’s just how it’s played out. Tim’s a really great guy,” Samuel said.
