Back­lash to film cast­ing

The Press and Journal (Inverness, Highlands, and Islands) - - NEWS -

Film­mak­ers have been crit­i­cised for cast­ing Jake Gyl­len­haal in the lead­ing role of dou­ble am­putee Jeff Bau­man in new movie Stronger – rather than an ac­tor with dis­abil­i­ties.

Cam­paign­ers said the op­por­tu­nity to cast a dis­abled ac­tor for the part was “over­looked”.
