Yes, it would have been better if they could have made at least an effort to cast performers who could reasonably pass for brother and sister. But Jessica Alba doesn't look white. She's looks like a mixed girl who's made every effort to pass for white. Which...hey...the bitch is hot and I don't really give a shit about much else. But if you're gonna cast a mixed race actress to play Sue Storm, is it really that difficult to find a mixed race actor to play her brother?
I guess they could have the same father but different mothers. Or one of them could be adopted. But shit, any hot, white actress in Hollywood could have done the exact same job Alba did. They could have cast any one of a dozen white women in that role.
But yeah, if you're gonna go ethnic and hope that no one knows Jessica Alba is half Latino, do your goddamned best to find someone who can realistically look like a sibling.
