DOWNTON ABBEY IS GETTING BLACK CHARACTER
Popular British television show, Downton Abbey is casting for a black character that will be introduced in the upcoming fourth season.
Producers have sent out a casting notice looking for a black actor to play a jazz musician named Jack Ross.
The character is going to be “part of a storyline about race relations in the 1920s”
Being black isn’t the only qualification for the character. They are also looking for someone who’s in their late 20’s, and, “very handsome and a real man, not a boy with charm and charisma”. That person must be able to “sing brilliantly.”
