Now Hollywood cast agents were looking for an actor to play a non-binary HOUSE in the movie Our Own Devices starring £ 10m singer FKA Twigs
- Film producers are looking for someone to play the voice of a ‘non-binary’ chat house
- The casting request is for £ 10 million film starring British singer FKA twigs
- The language used in daily ‘breakdowns’ of future roles has been transformed
A ‘non-binary’ talking house and fans of princesses who ‘identify as masculine’ are among the ‘aroused’ casting requests now being sent in Hollywood.
In a move that confuses many of Tinseltown’s greatest talent agents, the language used in daily ‘failures’ – private messages sent to managers and casting agents to warn them of upcoming roles – has transformed.
The breakdowns traditionally include a brief description of the movie or TV show and the roles that studios want to take on, such as ‘man, 30, police officer’ or ‘woman, 20, sexy mom’.

But in recent weeks, after protests from Black Lives Matter and calls to make the film industry more diverse, they have become “ increasingly awake and bizarre, ” according to a top agent.
Producers of Our Own Devices, a £ 10 million film starring British singer FKA twigs, are looking for someone to play the ‘house’ voice.
The film is about a child – ‘Kid’, played by FKA twigs – who evokes human emotions in an artificial intelligence-controlled trait. But the casting magazine, which was sent out last week, reads: ‘House: identifies as female / trans / non-binary / gender neutral. Speech only. Open ethnicity. Only provide star names. ‘
Another casting call last week for a series on ‘Fans of Princesses (the exact title has yet to be determined)’ asks’ male princess fans aged 8 to 10 years old. Diversity is strongly encouraged, including, but not limited to, members of the PWD (Persons with Disabilities) community. ‘
An agent, who has worked in Los Angeles for 30 years and represents several A-list stars, said, “The breakdowns are like the” Bible “in Hollywood. Every agent and manager in the city signs up for them.
‘The studios email upcoming projects and you put your best talent forward.
“The disturbances have woken up ridiculously and are politically correct. They can not even say that they are looking for men or women, it is all ‘person identifying as woman’ or ‘character identifying as man’. Most phone calls are looking for people of color. The buzzword is BIPOC. (Black indigenous people of color). It is not worth putting on my white actors and actresses because they will not get the part. ‘
The Mail on Sunday sparked an international debate last week by revealing that Hollywood now wants to be so diverse that studios openly refuse to hire white actors, writers and directors.

Media outlets, including the NBC news channel and Australian TV, followed the story and dozens of messages from actors, including several household names, contacted this newspaper to confirm the use of ‘reverse racism’.
A star, who, like his peers, asked not to be named, praised The Mail on Sunday for “having the courage to say what’s really going on behind the scenes.”
Another actor, who was looking for a lead role, said, ‘I was told I was perfect for the role, but I wouldn’t get it because the casting director was told to only hire people of color. Unless you are black, feminine and preferably gay or gender fluid, it is impossible to find work.
“Nobody says Hollywood doesn’t have to be more diverse, does it, but jobs should be allocated to talent, right?”
