(CNN) — James Franco ha sido escogido para interpretar al revolucionario cubano Fidel Castro, según varios reportes, y muchos actores latinos no están contentos.

En particular, el prolífico John Leguizamo, quien recientemente interpretó a Bruno en “Encanto” de Disney, criticó el casting de Franco en Instagram.

Leguizamo argumentó que el papel debería haber sido para un actor latino.

“¿Cómo sigue pasando esto?” preguntó Leguizamo el viernes. “¿Cómo es que Hollywood nos excluye pero también se roba nuestras narrativas? ¡No más apropiación de Hollywood y de los servicios por streaming! ¡Boicot! ¡Esto es una m****a! Además, es una historia muy difícil de contar sin engrandecimiento, ¡lo cual estaría mal! No tengo ningún problema con Franco, ¡pero él no es latino!”.

Stephanie Beatriz: “Los latinos queremos vernos representados de una manera que parezca multifacética”

Franco interpretará a Castro en la próxima película “Alina of Cuba”, y la producción comenzará a finales de este año, según los reportes. La película sigue la vida de Alina Fernández, la hija de Castro.

Leguizamo no es la única estrella latina enojada por el casting.

“Wtf es esto…”, escribió la actriz Jess Darrow, quien hizo la voz de Luisa Madrigal en “Encanto”, en respuesta a la publicación de Leguizamo.

“Lo siento, pero ¿qué diablos?”, escribió el actor Raúl Castillo en una historia de Instagram.

“Yo leyendo que James Franco tendrá que ‘construir’ un acento para Castro, cuando toda mi vida se han burlado de mí por no hablar inglés como un estadounidense y me han dicho innumerables veces que trabaje duro para deshacerme de él…”, escribió la actriz Sol Rodríguez.

“Estoy audicionando para otro traficante de drogas genérico latinoamericano y James Franco está haciendo el papel de Fidel Castro.”, escribió el actor Jeff Torres en Twitter. “Los latinos se les juega sucio aquí y en todas partes. Maldición lol”.

La representación latina se ha rezagado durante mucho tiempo en Hollywood. A pesar de representar el 18% de la población de EE.UU., solo el 5% de los papeles de habla en las 100 películas principales de 2019 fueron para actores latinos, según un estudio de 2020 de la Iniciativa de Inclusión Annenberg de la USC.

Franco también enfrentó acusaciones de comportamiento inapropiado y de explotación sexual en 2018 por parte de cinco mujeres, varias de las cuales eran sus alumnas. En 2021, tras resolver una demanda colectiva, admitió haberse acostado con estudiantes de la escuela de actuación de la que era copropietario.

Fans all saying the same thing as John Cena hints at WWE return and cryptically hints at comeback of another star

WWE legend John Cena has hinted at a return to the ring with a cryptic post on social media.

Cena, 45, took to Instagram, where he famously uploads pictures with mysterious undertones, and suggested he could be set for a WrestleMania 36 rematch against another returning star.

The American grappler, who is currently enjoying a successful stint in Hollywood, hasn't competed at WrestleMania since his loss to 'The Fiend' Bray Wyatt two years ago.

The 16-time world champion shared a snap of their Firefly Fun House Match showing Wyatt knocking him down with his old keychain for the pinfall.

The Champ also shared The Fiend's recent viral post which expresses his love for professional wrestling in such a cryptic manner that fans believe he is hinting at a WWE return after his departure in 2020.

Wyatt's statement read: "Wrestling is not a love story, it’s a Fairy Tale for masochists. A comedy for people who criticize punchlines. A fantasy most can’t understand, a spectacle no one can deny.

"Lines are blurred. Heroes are villains. Budgets are cut. Business is business. But it can also be a land where Dead men walk. Where Honor makes you Elite. Where Demons run for office. And Rock bottom is a reason to rejoice.

"WOOOOO! It’s an escape. A reason to point the blame at anyone but yourself for 2-3 hours. An excuse to be a kid again, and nothing matters except the moment we are in.

"Wrestling is not a love story, it’s much more. It’s hope. And in a world surrounded in hate, greed and violence, a world where closure may never come. We all know a place that has hot and cold hope on tap. For better or for worse."

Cena re-shared that post and fans are speculating that both he and Wyatt are coming back to WWE for a potential rematch.

This fan said: "Imagine Cena and Wyatt both return at Clash at the Castle."

And this one wrote: "Bray Wyatt back to WWE here we go confirmed by John Cena."
