A thing I made. So, I have no plans at all to go see Ender’s Game, ok, for the usual “OSC can’t have my money" reasons. Despite that, I still went “um" when I heard they’d cast Ben Kingsley as Mazer Rackham.  And then I saw a production photo of Kingsley with a moko, and read about how they’d apparently consulted with experts to try and get it to look right, and… really, the Maori heritage of your character is that important, but you can’t cast a Maori actor? So here’s a recasting drawing: Temuera Morrison as Mazer Rackham, mostly because I found a good reference photo of him to work from and thought he looked sufficiently staunch in it. I couldn’t find an unfuzzy photo of the moko for the character, unfortunately, so this is the best I could do with a lot of squinting and I apologise to everyone because it’s not as good as it should be, and it is missing some bits because Tem’s got his hair here. I gave him the beard tho, because I suspected he’d be damned fine with a goatee, and indeed t’is so. But anyway. Maori character, Maori actor, la.
