Actor Demian Bichir tells Fresh Air’s Dave Davies why he turns down a lot of roles he’s offered:
You have no idea how many times I say no to projects … Of course, we in Mexico have given Hollywood a lot of stories, a lot of creepy stories sometimes, corruption stories, and that’s our fault. But sometimes it’s a little too much. Sometimes it’s about exaggerating the point or stepping into clichés or stereotypes. And sometimes I just say no to projects where all the Mexicans are bad, all the Mexicans are corrupt, all the girls are whores, everyone is bad, and everything is filthy. I have to say no to those kinds of things.
