Probably “not Cuban enough” if I had to guess. I think there’s something to be said for wanting someone with a Cuban background (regardless of ethnic background) being involved in the role. Casting should probably balance being true to the look of the character to some extent, but wouldn’t an actual culturally Cuban person better represent and execute the role?

ALL of this conversation is moot though because the guy they chose is an accused sex offender. THAT’S weird
