Dev Patel disappointed with Hollywood over his acting roles.

The Last Airbender star says he has struggled to find work beyond typical asian roles of goofy side kicks, martial artist and nerds.

His performance in Slumdog Millionaire launched him into the spotlight, but he has struggled to find work afterward because he did not want to play the usual “Asian” roles in Hollywood.

Patel had expected to be offered better work following the success of Slumdog Millionaire, so was disappointed to discover that he had already become typecast.

“Because Slumdog Millionaire was such a big hit, it is important in terms of what I should do next,” he said. “For my second film, I wanted a role that would stretch me, but all I was getting offered were stereotypical.

“Asian actors tend to be given un-substantial and un-challenging scripts. I’m likely to be offered the roles of a goofy sidekick, martial artists, or nerds. I want to show that I have more skill.”

Patel latest film, The Last Airbender, set in a future world of warring tribes. The film had experienced its own race controversy after some groups complained that white actors was chosen for asian people roles.

The Last Airbender has received terrible reviews, and unlikely to have positive impact on Patel’s career, but he is still hoping for better roles in future.

“I’m roaring for a better role, but I have to be realistic. Being an Asian actor, it’s never going to be easy. Hopefully the industry is changing and the casting directors will be less focused on colors so people like myself can get through barricade.” he said.
