How about people of color?
"We are looking for a mix of people of all ages, genders/other from multi-racial backgrounds with interesting character faces and physicality's [sic]," Talento said on Facebook.
Hopefully Middle-earth isn't completely white again. Jackson got away with it twice (not sure how he did it in The Hobbit), but it won't work a third time.

They could get any Hollywood actor for horribly disfigured teeth. Just have their veneers removed for the part.

I'm good on two of those recquirements. But the thought of having a 18h flight to go on location is stopping me to postulate, weirdly.
