A major Hollywood producer held a casting call for a new film he was about to shoot.

The role needed a big, strong, black actor as the lead. He found the perfect guy, 6'4", muscular, 280 pounds and gave him the part.

However a small, skinny Asian actor, 5'1", 130 Lbs. also went to the call and was immediately rejected. "Sorry, but you're not what we are looking for," said the casting agent.

Well, the Asian guy sued, charging racial discrimination and after months of legal wrangling won, forcing the producer to use him.

This will be the strangest re-make of "Shaft" ever.
