 Henry Golding in talks for Snake Eyes
Henry Golding has been reported to be in talks with Paramount to be cast in a lead role in the movie Snake Eyes.

Henry Golding's breakout movie was Crazy Rich Asians.
Since then he has been cast in five films.
Malaysian television host, actor and model Henry Ewan Golding was born in Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysia, to Margaret Likan and Clive Golding. His father is English and his mother is Malaysian. His mother is from the Iban people, an Indigenous group in Sarawak, and Henry completed the bejalai, an Iban rite of passage, in the jungles of Borneo.

Henry spent his early years in Terengganu. His family moved from Malaysia to Surrey, England when he was eight. When he was twenty one, he moved back to Malaysia, living in Kuala Lumpur, pursuing acting work, and becoming known as a host of travel shows.

In 2018, Henry made his feature film debut in the smash hit Crazy Rich Asians (2018), playing Nick Young, a Singaporean multi-millionaire who must carefully navigate his relationship with an American, Rachel Chu (Constance Wu). Later that year, he starred opposite Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick in the thriller A Simple Favor (2018). Since his 2018 success, he has signed on to several more films, including The Gentlemen (2020) and Last Christmas (2019).

Henry married Liv Lo, an Italian-Taiwanese TV presenter and yoga instructor, in August 2016.

John M Chu Director of G.I.Joe Rretaliation and also Crazy Rich Asians had this to say:
my relationship with Snake Eyes and my relationship with
are on two opposite sides of my brain so the fact that they are colliding is a complete mind f$&k in the best possible way. #NinjasNeverDie #ArashikageForever

It seems that Golding is caught in the middle.
First he was not Asian enough in Crazy Rich Asians which caused some controversy and now internet buzz on Instagram twitter and GIJOE websites are in heated discussions about the original comic book look of Snake Eyes of a blond blue eyed caucasian possibly not being represented int he new film.

Maybe if he just dyed his hair blond? A wig?
Early casting announcements for Sienna Miller as The Baroness had similar reactions to her blond hair.

This also brings up a very recent type of topic on the internets. Several casting announcements where a traditional look for a character has been changed have raised eyebrows of people either for a change or against it.
It is a sticky subject to be sure and one that crosses generational and idealogical lines.
A more measured approach to this information may be in order.

The news even made its way into the Nerdist's sights.
