Whoopi Goldberg Wants Wes Anderson To Cast More People Of Color In His Movies

Jason Schwartzman and Adam Scott stopped by the "The View" on Friday to promote their new movie, "The Overnight," but Whoopi Goldberg had a better idea.

After chatting about the movie, Goldberg suddenly adopted a valley-girl accent and turned the conversation over to Schwartzman, who regularly has appeared in director Wes Anderson's movies (though it should be noted "The Overnight" is not a Wes Anderson film).

"I want to do this right, because I love all the Wes Anderson movies that you starred in -- like, almost all of them, from Grand Budapest Hotel and Rushmore and all of those," she told the actor. "So, I noticed there's not a lot of folks of color and I thought I would like to give you my résumé to give to Wes Anderson just to let him know I'm available. As you see, I've interned on 'The Late Show.'"

Goldberg, who is one of the few people in the world to have won an Oscar, a Grammy, a Tony and an Emmy (aka an EGOT) then proceeded to actually give Schwartzman her resume. Schwartzman said he would give Goldberg's resume to the director that day, before going on to say how much he admired her work.

Of course, Goldberg isn't the first person to criticize Anderson for his casting choices, which tend to include the same actors over and over again, with little diversity amongst time (though GQ noted in 2013, his most recent film, "'The Grand Budapest Hotel' does feature Anderson's first nonwhite protagonist -- though he plays a hotel concierge").

Request for comment made by The Huffington Post to Anderson's reps has yet to be returned at this time.
