SCOOP Films – Why do actors rarely have the conditions they portray?

Why do actors rarely have the conditions they portray?

Featured photo: Adam Rose/Fox/TNS

No surprises in this report from the Ruderman Foundation, which found that over 95% of characters with disabilities on television are played by able-bodied actors. Is the real problem a shortage of roles for so called disabled actors or the “challenge” that able bodied actors find in playing disabled roles? Think Dustin Hoffman in Rain Man

One film that got it right recently was Stephane Brize’s La loi du marche, where Matthieu Schaller, an actor with cerebral palsy, plays the disabled son of the leading character, and whose positioning in the film felt entirely natural and important to the storyline without being gratuitous. More like this please…
