Younger Actors Should Have Been Cast "Judas and The Black Messiah"


The movie staring Daniel Kaluuya as as Black Panther Party Chairman Fred Hampton was a deeply impacted trull movie. Director Shaka King did a magnificent job of telling a story that was marked change in the Civil Rights movement on the landscape of an America that was ready to change. The one flaw in the casting of the movie is how the actors who portrayed the pivotal characters are actually years beyond them in age.


Hampton was 21 when he died, a decade younger than Kaluuya is now. O'Neal was a little younger, 20 to Stanfield's 29 — and only 17 when he was first approached by the FBI.
