"I told my team after I finished (2012 film) Chronicle that I only want to go out for roles that were written for white characters. Me playing the role will make it what it is." African-American actor Michael B. Jordan likes to challenge casting directors. In the new Fantastic Four reboot, he played Caucasian actress Kate Mara's brother, Johnny Storm. The casting announcement stirred controversy among Marvel fans, as the character, aka the Human Torch, was depicted as a blond haired boy with blue eyes in the original comic books.
