->David Carradine is [[ElvisPresley Elvis]] of kung fu, having the honorable distinction of helping to pioneer western martial arts movies only by virtue of blatant racism. He is most famous for playing the lead in the 1970s kung fu serial, creatively titled ''Series/KungFu'', winning the part from Creator/BruceLee, even though Lee helped create the show for the sole purpose of acting in it. Apparently no one told Bruce that at that time Chinese people were considered 'too Chinese' to play Chinese people.

->I started out on Broadway in the original production of ''Yentl'' and won awards for it, and then when the move came out with BarbraStreisand they said, 'We wanna do it authentically, we wanna put all-Jewish people in the cast'....I went, 'I just did it for a year on Broadway!', and they said,'[[VaudevilleHook We don't care!]] You're Irish-Catholic!'

->They should’ve known that ''{{Film/Aloha}}'' wouldn’t end well as soon as Film/EmmaStone was cast as a woman named Allison Ng who is a quarter Hawaiian, a quarter Chinese and a quarter Swedish. The Swedish part must have eaten the Chinese and Hawaiian parts.

->The Creator/StevenSeagal of today is a bloated cartoon-Buddhist in a buttoned-up circus tent, a spiritual blues warrior, shilling his own-brand energy drink and raving about how Obama should be impeached. He's the ultimate in {{yellowface}}, clad in velvet and claiming to be [[NapoleonDelusion a reincarnated 17th century Tibetan Lama]]...With its cultural links to the colourful world of organised crime, Seagal is vocally proud of his Italian heritage, despite his Irish mother and Jewish father, and has an Asian grandmother on his father's side, lineage he deduced from a photograph – ''“All I have is a picture of my father’s family, and they… got pretty slanted eyes. And Asian clothes. I don’t know what they are. [[AllAsiansAreAlike But something Asian.]]”''

->So yes, our Cuban gangsters are currently being played by the priest from ''Film/TheAmityvilleHorror'' and Julia Roberts’ brother. Making this even more glaring is that all the other bad guys in the film (with the exception of Ned) are played by actual Latinos. I guess Edward James Olmos and Andy Garcia were busy that year.

->It's set in Romania, but you'd never guess that from the hilarious butcherings of Olde Englishe accents exhibited by about half the characters. Some actors like Creator/MichaelMadsen [[NotEvenBotheringWithTheAccent don't even bother trying]], much like Creator/KevinCostner and Christian Slater in their [[Film/RobinHoodPrinceOfThieves Robin Hood movie]]. But there's nothing, and I mean nothing more hilarious than watching Creator/MichelleRodriguez scowl and [[FakeBrit attempt a British accent]]. It's like watching your mother try to open a can of pickles.
