Producer Slams John Leguizamo For Bashing James Franco Role

James Franco‘s upcoming role as Fidel Castro is causing quite a stir.

Alina of Cuba—which is based on Cuban-exile-turned-social-advocate Alina Fernandez, who learns at 10 years old that she is Castro’s daughter—producer John Martinez O’Felan is responding to critical commentary about casting Franco, 44, in the indie film—namely those from actor John Leguizamo.

Following the announcement of Franco as the Cuban historical figure, Leguizamo, 58, took to Instagram to voice his outrage over a non-Latino actor playing the role.
