Actor Steps Down From "Whitewashing" Role

I'm going to be honest, I don't know much about Hellboy.


What I've learned recently is there is a character named Major Ben Daimio, who was going to be played by Ed Skrein in the upcoming revamp.

The only problem is (which apparently Skrein didn't know either) is that Major Ben Daimio is technically of mix-raced (Japanese and white) and there was a huge call for him to be played by a more appropriate actor.

Well, unlike Matt Damon or Scarlett Johansson, Shrein listened and posted this:

Now he's being praised for making the push and setting an example for other actors to step down from roles in order to give other actors (especially under represented groups!!!) a chance act in their appropriate role.


If you'd like to see Skrein really act, you can always catch him in Deadpool, or his next project whatever that may be!
