Zachary Levi loses work over being ‘too Jewish

 

“Thor” star Zachary Levi says that he has been turned down for roles because he’s “too Jewish” – even though he’s not Jewish at all.

“I heard multiples times that I was too Jewish,which is surprising to people because I go by Zachary Levi. Levi is my middle name. Pugh is my real last name. I’m Welsh.”

“I guess they were looking for more of a corn-fed, white boy look,” he added, “My family is from f****** Indiana! Come on, I’m like dying here!”

Fortunately, the actor told us he got to skip the casting directors entirely when landing his new role in Eva Longoria’s show “Telenovela.”

“I didn’t audition,” he said, “We’ve been friends for so long and she just said, ‘Hey, I have this role. Would you want to come do it?’ And I said, ‘Yeah, I’ll come do it.'”
