I have NEVER been impressed with Boyega, at all, and for the life of me, I cannot understand how he got the Star Wars part in the first place. Surely, the Casting Director was just desperate. His walking out might just be a Godsend because he is NOT even close to being a good actor, let alone, being diva enough to walk out on a $25M project.

I only know him from SW. I'm not sure he's made his bones enough to treat production and distribution companies this way lol. Today you walkout on a $25M project. Tomorrow an industry worth over $100B walks out on you. I have no problem with actors standing up for what they believe in, Lord knows Joaquin Phoenix is a basket case but I'll go to all of his movies because he can act and I don't let politics or social differences dictate my entertainment. I'm more concerned that this guy will ruin his career before it really takes off.
