I'll give it a shot when it airs, but as it's a CW show I've already got low expectations as it is. Probably a teen soap opera, typical CW.

No thanks. If it actually happens though, we need Tommy Wiseau to play HIM.

Then Chloe Bennett wouldn't be in it, they have to fill the diversity quota on CW.

I like Donald Faison, but I'm having a hard time picturing him as the Professor... plus he doesn't seem old enough with the girls aged up.

Very odd casting, and no. It has nothing to do with race. I watched Scrubs, so I know how Donald Faison works as an actor. But whatever. I'm cool with this.

Donald Faison? Oh, I'll always remember him as the Scrubs guy.

But anyway, it's no surprise CW race swaps characters. They've done it to other shows.

Partially.

She's Eurasian, mostly European and some Asian. It's like Olivia Munn.

Yeah, calling her Asian for this purpose is a stretch. I'm talking about a fully Asian cast member for Buttercup, and I think the two names I mentioned would have worked terrifically well.

I don't get the discrimination of half-Asian people. Because I've experienced this a few times before with Jon Foo and Kristin Kreuk who are half-Asian, but were still not good enough to play Goku (who's not even Asian, BTW) and Chun-Li. Similar to Bruce Lee as well. He was forbidden to learn kun-fu at one point for having some European ancestry.

She has talked about it before, which is why she changed her name .

So it must be because she does not look Asian huh. Adeline Rudolph's father is German.
