Billy: Heard some folks're pee-Ohd over the new Lord of the Rings having black elves.
Joe: Black elves? Like in Dungeons and Dragons?
Jim: No. Black actors playing elves.
Bob: Are they good actors?
Billy: I suppose they are.
Joe: So what's the problem then?
Jim: Some folks think that since JRR wrote 'em as white they should be played by white people.
Bob: Did he write them as white?
Billy: Not really. Some folks just assume.
Joe: Cuz Tolkein was white?
Jim: Something like that.
Bob: That's silly. It's not like Middle Earth is actual history.
Billy: Like Idris Elba playing Henry the VIII.
Joe: Actually, that's not a bad idea.
Jim: Idris Elba can play anything.
Bob: He's still my choice for James Bond.
