Go get ’em, George!
Now, check out the trailer for Clooney’s next film, “Hail, Caesar!” We count zero black actors. Can you fine one?

And here’s the full cast from IMDB. Honest question — is there a single black actor in the film? Not a star, mind you. A single actor. In any role. Keep in mind, it’s a movie about ancient Rome with slaves and all that. This literally could be the whitest movie ever made in the modern era.

Maybe Clooney’s next film as director, “Suburbicon,” will have a little diversity? It’s a “crime mystery set in the 1950s” starring “Matt Damon, Josh Brolin and Julianne Moore.”
