Hollywood composition of actors and actresses? Is it true in Hollywood even Italian people like Fonzie were protrayed by Jewish actors while this OscarsTooWhite memes were going on. My list was characters you would have no idea in Hollywood would be this way but once you look at the names in wikipedia it just seems like 50 to 100 times over-representation of one group in Hollywood. Believe me it is not WASPS or White Christians, Catholics, or even Mormons. 1. Fonzie- Portrayed by Henry Winkler- His parents were German Jews who emigrated from Berlin to the U.S. in 1939 on the eve of World War II. 2. Zach Morris Saved by the Bell- Mark Paul Goselaar played him His Dutch-born father is of German and Dutch Jewish descent. Gosselaar's Jewish paternal great-grandparents, Hertog and Hester Gosselaar, were murdered at the Sobibor extermination camp during the Holocaust. 3. The Show Alice- Linda Lavin The Lavin family were active members of the local area Jewish community. The list goes on and on but Hollywood would be in the 70 to 80 percent range of actors and actresses you see being represented in Hollywood by a group that makes up 2 percent of the US Population. Also Hollywood is not a place where you pass a test like an MCAT to be a doctor. It is all about who you know and hiring friends and nepotism. The over-representation can never ever be overstated.
