(Regarding the Apollo 13 example) See, there’s where your cultural assumptions are elevating race over dozens of other factors. There are a lot of ways in which Tom Hanks and Tom Hanks’s portrayal of Jim Lovell make him different from Jom Lovell and the portrayal deviate from real life. You’re choosing to draw a line around the perceived race of the actor and make that an uncrossable boundary. It’s “distracting,” not because it’s inherently distracting but because your assumptions about race and it’s importance are making it distracting.
*I'm experimenting with E, em, and es and emself as pronouns that do not indicate any specific gender nor exclude any specific gender.
