Lance Reddick is a good actor but wow is this a miscast and a half. I liked him a lot in Fringe and the Horizon series but having him in this unnecessary show is a waste of talent. Directors/writers these days piggyback way too much on we’ll known IP’s just to insinuate their own ideologies rather than paying respects to the source material. It’s shameless, blatant, and lazy.I'm so glad it's not canon then.
And no. I am not racist. I just think Wesker shouldn't be played by an actor who is black. Just like Edward Carnby from Alone in the Dark isn't supposed to be Korean.
