Kerry Washington Says She’s Available to Voice Roles for Black Characters


American actress, producer and director, Kerry Washington has gone on Twitter to notify anyone who cares to listen in Hollywood that she is interested in taking up voicing roles for black characters.

This comes mere days after Alison Brie said she regrets voicing Diana Nguyen, a Vietnamese-American character on Netflix’s BoJack Horseman.

Before that, other white actors like Jenny Slate and Kristen Bell announced that they’d be exiting their voice roles as biracial characters on Big Mouth and Central Park, respectively.

Additionally, Mike Henry, who voiced Cleveland Brown on Family Guy since 1999, stepped down from his role.
