Casting Disabled Actors

Here is an interesting article I came across about actors with mental and physical disabilities.  It revolves around the producers of Fox’s ‘Glee’ (one of whom is a Loyola grad) casting a non-disabled actor to play Artie, the show’s wheelchair-bound character.  Thought-provoking stuff.

    ahhhh I’ve been trying to find this article! It is interesting…it’s a tough call, because I do like the kid that’s already cast. But it also offers up opportunity for disabled actors.
