I doubt the left and the right give two craps about Dungeons and Dragons. Actors should be employed for their ability not their ethnicity (with obvious exceptions for historical figures). The issue that Hollywood still has to overcome is that the default does not have to be white and male. I wonder if they should go for something smaller, more like the Name of the Rose? A low level group brought together by a local guard captain to investigate a grisly death leading to a magical cult involving the nobility?Which is why you can't go the other way either. The Left would be happy if you cast a black actor as Drizzt and emphasised the point that surface dwellers believed Drow where evil. But the Right would take up the cause that they "didn't look like an elf".You might just about get away with casting an Asian, but since Drizzt is a lousy character anyway, better to go with something else all together.
