Pierce Gagnon

I can already see your comments. Can’t wait to hear what you all are going to say about this.

It’s been announced that Pierce Gagnon, who had a major role in the sci-fi hit Looper, has been cast as Halle Berry’s son in her CBS summer 2014 sci-fi TV series, Extant, to be executive produced by Steven Spielberg and Berry.

In the show, Berry will play ”an astronaut trying to reconnect with her family when she returns after a year in outer space and her experiences lead to events that ultimately change the course of human history. 

Gagnon is playing her son “who is more than he appears to be.

According to the press announcement, Gagnon was cast after “a worldwide search for an actor to play the part.

O.K. let’s hear your comments.

    I think this child is so very cute and he deserves an Emmy for his excellent acting. This kid has a great future!

  • IGGY | August 18, 2014 4:45 AMReply

    This is the most ignorant article. It is 2014. Does it matter who plays her son? The husband in the show is a white man. Her mom is white. Have you seen her kids in real life? Then ok. The child fits perfect as her son and I think they favor and it's believeable since she is mixed.

  • Maisy | August 8, 2014 10:01 PMReply

    Yes, this kid definitely looks like his mom could be Halle Berry and father caucasian. He has olive skin and he looks mixed, but so what? There are lots of fully caucasian actors with various skin-tones too, so why not let a mixed race actor get roles too? JS

  • Santipa Earth | July 23, 2014 11:25 PMReply

    Pierce looks exactly like my brother's grandchildren. My brother is a light-skinned black, and his ex-wife is white (from Brazil). Their grandchildren have lime-green colored eyes, olive skin-color with thick, curly hair. National Geographic view of what humans will look like in 2050 was a bit off...the future has arrived. Does this mean racism is here to stay?

  • screamwriter | October 23, 2013 10:48 PMReply

    I don't mean to spoil Sergio's fun, but since it hasn't been mentioned in 50+ comments, the son is actually an android.

  • screamwriter | October 25, 2013 4:30 PM


    And you call me a side-stepper... While I appreciate the movie recommendation, the question at hand is simple enough to answer without it, but I suspect you prefer playing offense rather than defense. Anyway, I've said my peace. I'll go back to lurking...

  • CareyCarey | October 25, 2013 12:52 AM

    Well Screamwriter, I see we're at an impasse. Now I am going to walk out on a limb and say everyone knows exactly what's at play here, except you. So maybe it's you who has his fingers crossed behind your back?

    Okay, listen, tonight I watched a movie titled Hallelujah directed by King Vidor, narrated by the film historian Donald Bogle. You've probably never heard of the man nor the film, but there's something special about that film that I can relate to. It's the same reason I think a POC should have been chosen. It's really very simple.

  • screamwriter | October 24, 2013 9:50 PM


    I can't tell if you're pulling my leg or being stubborn. Why do YOU think a POC should have been chosen as her non-biological/robot son?

  • CareyCarey | October 24, 2013 7:00 PM

    "If the child isn't her biological offspring, anyone could be cast to play the role."

    DUH Screamwriter... one big DUH goes your way!!! Isn't that the bone of contention that you seem to be missing? If anyone could be cast to play the role, please give us (in your best side-step) why you believe a person of color was not chosen? And please, don't tell me (because Sergio has wiped that off the table) that a black android is not realistic and would not sell to the general public.

  • screamwriter | October 24, 2013 6:39 PM


    If the child isn't her biological offspring, anyone could be cast to play the role.


    We have no information on how she became the child's parent, where he came from, who created him, or why. Perhaps he was not made to order. It might be a bit premature to start quibbling about casting at this point.

  • Mia | October 24, 2013 12:53 PM

    so whats your point....

  • CareyCarey | October 24, 2013 12:52 PM

    Exactly Sergio.

    I know garbage men don't usually come out at 10:48 PM to clean up yesterday's new but don't hurt Screamwriter, let's seek first to understand, he may have a valid point.

    Well, let's see, although we now have a black president everybody knows there are no black folks in outer space (only privileged white people are allowed on that A-train). So it stands to reason that Halle didn't have sex with a black android (Michael Ealy was still stuck in the back of the bus). Consequently, when Halle returned home to tell her husband "Guess who's coming to dinner?", there is no way she was referring to a dark skinned child who looked anything like Sidney Poitier.

    So please give Screamwriter a break because every text book I've read and every movie I've seen will attest to the fact that black folks don't swim and they sure don't live in outer space. Besides, on a similar note, since TV this is a business and er'body knows blacks don't do Sci-fi (even if Will Smith is the star), I understand why the producers chose a child who looks just like them. I mean, don't get mad at me, but it's a proven fact that black folks will gather at the alter before getting on the bus to see tortured slave movies and movies with shuffling butlers and scaredy-cat maids . Yep, dem folks look just like my grand pappy and my big momma, so it's all good in the black neighborhood.

  • sergio | October 24, 2013 7:53 AM

    Meaning what? That only white actors are allowed to play anroids because having a person of color playing the role would have been ridiculous? What about Michael Ealy in the new Fox show Alomst Human where he plays an anroid?

  • truth | October 23, 2013 9:55 PMReply

    I have the feeling that many of these comments defending the casting of this Irish looking boy are coming from black folks who would love nothing more than to have white offspring. Yes, there are black people who look forward to some interracial Utopia where everybody is "beige." The reality is that 46 years after interracial marriage became legal in every state, nearly 98% of whites will choose a white spouse. White folks are not nearly as obsessed with race mixing as we are. The so-called one drop rule is just a way to keep the white race "pure." It is one of the fundamental principles of white supremacy and it is shameful that black folks think there is something positive about it. Hypodescent is the automatic assigning of mixed race children to the race of the "subordinate" parent. It has been practiced in this country for 400 years.

    1. Halle Berry - Great Actress
    2. Pierce Gagnon - Was amazing in Looper, good actor

    The actual issue - Need more young "Black" child stars in Hollywood alongside adult movie stars where storylines aren't stereotypical & reinforce a negative influence, even on comedic connotations however subtle.

    Interesting how it's stated “a worldwide search for an actor to play the part.” - Almost like they knew controversial opinions was likely to ensue (or maybe thats me other thinking maybe...) End of the day Halle seems to be executive on this show so if its not just a vanity title then i'm sure she had a say in casting & evidently wasn't thinking too much on race but they boys talent which i guess shined.

    But i do believe with great power comes great influence as well as responsibility so when in these positions it's good to help your own as we need some promising young actors and there are many out there not getting any shine and some are good enough. Yes Halle's daughter could easily be Gagnon brother but he is not, born American with french background of parents (caucasian) lets be real it wasn't just talent he looked the part also. Image is everything and personally they played on that fact on her daughter. Having a darker complexion of a black child arguably wouldn't get as much a look in - Hollywood is complex in its 'controversy sells' get up they like to stir things up in the black community never staying in one lane so you can catch them out they got a answer for everything.



  • Carl | October 23, 2013 7:32 PM

    "But i do believe with great power comes great influence as well as responsibility so when in these positions it's good to help your own"

    Great common sense is also needed if you think Berry, even being exec producer, is going to over rule Spielberg and the network on casting. I know you want Berry to give a token hand out but let's try to be fair for Christ sake.

  • Akhibrass | October 23, 2013 6:59 PMReply

    Btw, In the movie, "Things we lost in the fire", Halle's character is married and has children with a character played by David Duchovny and there was no problem finding children who were clearly multiracial.

  • CareyCarey | October 23, 2013 7:19 PM

    STOP IT AKHIBRASS! You could get arrested for killing the "there's absolutely nothing wrong with this pretend multiracial character" crowd.

    Black? White? Nah Sergio, that kid looks Dominican. Which means he's not black at all, right Serge? No better yet he looks Haitian and French. Nope, that kid looks Brazilian, a little Greek perhaps. Actually, he looks Vulcan mixed with a little Carebear. That's why he's got that "good" hair. Look I rhymed! God this is so dumb...

  • artbizzy | October 23, 2013 7:00 PM

    @Sergio What if I told you I was Dominican, too? Or Brazilian. I could be Brazilian. A Brazilian kid or a Dominican kid could look like that. Halle could easily be Dominican or Brazilian. So could Johnny Depp. Whoopi Goldberg could be Dominican or Brazilian, too. It's all so silly though.

  • RJ | October 23, 2013 12:38 PMReply

    Judging by other pictures of the kid, he could definitely be 1/4 black. What's really interesting to me is that this could mean that Halle herself is playing a biracial woman, which she hasn't done that many times before. Usually if you're part-black you play full-black unless it's a part of the story. Take from that what you will.

  • Jess | October 25, 2013 12:23 PM

    "Full black"? LOL. The average black American is 22% white. So, good luck finding a "full black" African-American who's descended from black Africans enslaved.

  • Akhibrass | October 23, 2013 6:43 PM

    It's silly and ridiculous to try and bring genetics into this. This has nothing to do with genetics. Hollywood has it's own rules of reality that has nothing to do with science. In hollywood world, children of the protagonist tend to match the race of the protagonist. This is nearly universal. You won't see a white parent with a child with discernible African features(per the logic of American race making) and if the parent is black the child will have at least some discernible African features. The fact that in this case the protagonist, who is clearly of African descent, has a child who has no African features is a violation of the Hollywood law and for anyone who is not aware of Halle Berry's ancestry, the fact that this child is supposed to be her may be a bit confusing. However, the law of parent-child phenotype congruence has come up against another Hollywood law. The law pertaining to the "Special Power". This law states that if a main character happens to have some special power or is to be some chose "one" than that character must be white. (Unless this power is derived from some "dark" force a la Blade and Spawn) This is a binding law and must never be violated. It trumps the PCPC law and thus we have a white child born to African descended main character. They could have easily have found a child who shared SOME of Halle's African features and thus fit her phenotype but that would have violated the "Special Power" law and thus it was a no go.

  • CareyCarey | October 23, 2013 6:05 PM

    Well James, to be brutally honest, I am simply a lazy hack. "CC" is easier to write than capital letter "C" a-r-e-y...Capital "C"-a-r-e-y. And, because I really wanted to hear all you had to say on this issue, I thought you'd be hesitant to jump in this rocking boat with the antagonistic Sergio and I (we are formidable foes when we're on the same page). Therefore, I thought it best (for both reasons) that I use "CC".

    Anyway, carry on... it's been fun.

    Btw, there is another who uses "CC", but it's safe to say our vernaculars and writing styles are quite different. And, on that note, which James are you... James M?

    just exactly what shade of skin color (or type of hair texture or nose shape) would satisfy you before you determine anyone's race?

    why are you feigning ignorance on genetics 101? Halle has black roots AND white roots. Whatever your cultural, social and political experiences have been. it can't ever get in the way of basic science. It's really that simple

  • saadiyah | October 23, 2013 2:35 PM

    CC- When you do (be fair now) please come back and share why you believe this child was chosen over others who may reflect African roots?

    Because again the husband will most likely be White.

    In Monster's Ball, Halle was married to Sean Comb's character. Their child was undeniably Black. See how that works?

  • CC | October 23, 2013 2:25 PM

    James, you're (conveniently, I assume) missing the point. Since Halle (who has black roots) is the mother, why couldn't or didn't her son's character look like President Obama (who has black features and a white parent) instead this child who could never pass a black person. So stop the madness (and feigning ignorance) and answer the question.

    @Saaduyah, how you doin' this morning? Listen, I am not objecting to Halle's love interest. Read my reply to James "the goal post mover" White, if you read my words there, you'll surely find them fair. When you do (be fair now) please come back and share why you believe this child was chosen over others who may reflect African roots?

  • saadiyah | October 23, 2013 1:53 PM

    CC - Anyone who paid attention in middle or high school biology class understands that a biracial person and a White person could ('most likely' is more accurate) have a child that looks like this. It's less likely that a biracial and a Black person's child would look like this, but it's not impossible.

    CC based on your comments you seem to objecting to the fact that Halle's spouse/boyfriend in the show will most likely not be Black since this child looks White. I mean it would be huge stretch if someone who looked like Taye Diggs was cast as her husband and this boy was supposed to be their son. So the most obvious conclusion is that Halle's spouse/boyfriend will probably not be Black. Is that what you're crying foul about? There's plenty of 'Black love' depicted in RHOA, Basketball wives and a slew of other similar reality shows as well as some on OWN, BET, and TV One. An interracial couple here and there isn't the end of the world.

    You're right James, if I only had a brain I wouldn't need The Great and Powerful OZ to show me the way home. BUT, please answer the question that you've conventiently side-stepped:

    Why does Halle's son (since we're talking about TV land; a place were anything is possible) why does her son's character have to exude the characteristics of Prince Charles and not Barrack Obama?

    Now, if you can't or will not answer that simple question, I can safely assume my last sentence is true... and I hear what you're not saying.

  • James | October 23, 2013 1:18 PM

    C'mon, grow a frontal lobe.
    You don't need to be geneticist to know how genetics work.

    Now don't take this wrong, but I am assuming those who are objecting to Sergio's post are either white or of mixed race. Therefore, they're carrying pom-poms for this project because... well... you know...

    .... and they're hoping, wishing and praying (calling those thing that are not, as if the already are [** Bible reference**]) that their offspring does not come into this world looking like Malcolm X.

    DISCLAMER: I am not a genetic scientist nor an anthropologist.

    But this is BULLSH*T! I am mad as hell and I am not going to take it anymore.

    Opps... forgive me for channeling that guy from the movie "Network" but is anyone else growing tired of the media's continuing one-sided version of Michael Jackson's "We Are The World... and it makes no difference if you're black or white"? Well... I don't know if he wrote "We Are The World" but check out the lyrics from his "Black or White" song:

    "I took my baby on a Saturday bang. "Boy is that girl with you?" Yes we're one and the same. Now I believe in miracles and a miracle has happened tonight, but if you're thinkin' about my baby, it doesn't matter if it's black or white." ~MJ

    See, that's what I'm talking about. What... how did y'all interpret those lyrics?

    Well, it's clear to me that Michael and this women were screwing around (he banged her). By-n-by a baby popped out. Now, the babies color immediately comes into question. Michael, defending his child like any man would do, grabbed his crouch, did the moon walk and screamed "IT MAKES NO DIFFERENCE IF HE'S BLACK OR WHITE..."

    Yes sir, now we're talking about something that's weighing heavy on my mind. That is, since the conversation is centered on mixing cream in the coffee, who says Halle's baby couldn't look like Leon, Kunta Kinte or Webster? Hey, I am serious, I know a few black men who have black mothers and white fathers, they look like Willie Mays.

    I know... I know, mommas baby and daddies maybe, but I'm just sayin'... there's absolutely nothing wrong with Halle's baby poppin' out looking like LaVar Burton.

    So what's the controversy here? Apparently, this child is playing the son of an interracial couple. Big deal. The kid was great in Looper and he looks like he could play the part of a child born to one white and one bi-racial parent. Have you seen her daughter, Nahla? She has blonde hair and blue eyes (and she's just so stinkin' cute - not relevant, just had to say).

  • Walter Harris Gavin | October 23, 2013 10:47 AMReply

    His "look" really doesn't matter. According to the 'one drop rule', he's still "black." And if he doesn't 'pass' will be looked upon by the larger society in that light. But it would have been really different if the kid did look "African," particularly if the father looked "white." That would have spoken volumes, without saying a word.

  • So what? | October 23, 2013 10:29 AMReply

    So what?

    Halle Berry is mixed. You do the genetic math.

    The political choices leading to the casting matter though. But again whatever. It's all a business. The business of film is not a social cause.

  • @JayTeeDee | October 23, 2013 10:25 AMReply

    I see no issue with this assuming that Halle Berry's husband is White in the show and considering she's biracial then the child may look like this plus this kid has sort of a brownish tint LOL. Plus have you seen Looper that little kid can play weird!

    ” an astronaut trying to reconnect with her family when she returns after a year in outer space and her experiences lead to events that ultimately change the course of human history” Hmmm....hopefully the petty preoccupation of who people partner with and what their kids look like will be one of the first on the list.

  • Marie | October 23, 2013 9:39 AMReply

    I understand why Sergio would expect a negative response but I agree with the other commentors. I'd assumed that a t.v. show starring Halle Berry would most likely not have a black male playing her husband/love interest because that's just how Hollywood works. Can't have too many black folks in one show because then it becomes a "black" show. Moreover, I think we all need to start embracing the idea that there's an increasing biracial population in this country that, like all other demographics, should be represented in our entertainment. The more I think about it, the more that I like that this child was cast. What would bother me was if the show had a black male lead and a non-black female love interest because I feel there's currently a conscious rejection in Hollywood of brown-skinned women, especially in love interest roles (Kerry Washington in Scandal is an exception).

  • saadiyah | October 23, 2013 9:25 AMReply

    Why are you anticipating a certain type of comment? Unless Halle's husband in the show is Black, having a child looking like this isn't out of the question for someone of mixed heritage like Halle. I know you've seen Paula Patton's son. Even though she's biracial and her husband is White, Black people are absolutely stunned that her son doesn't look Black. How shocking that a child that has 3 White grandparents and 1 Black grandparent has white skin and blonde hair!

  • Geneva Girl | October 23, 2013 8:57 AMReply

    Okay, let me try to be a voice of reason. Berry is bi-racial and if her character's husband is white or hispanic this child would be appropriate. I have friends whose bi-racial children are blond. So, it's possible that he would look like this little actor.

  • @IvoryJeff | October 25, 2013 8:45 PM

    Sorry about the repeated comment! Computer issue. ...

  • Just Sayin | October 23, 2013 2:10 PM

    Yes, it's believeable that this child could be Berry's (all you have to do is look at her own daughter who is even lighter and more Caucasian-looking than Berry). ... Which means, if the CD looked a little harder she probably could have found a REAL child who is biracial, but light enough to pass for white for the role.

    Unfortunately, all this type of casting does is set new precedent for CDs to continue to not cast black or brown or beige actors for roles that would be more than befitting their "type" in favor of using white actors. Just like back in the days of "Birth of a Nation," "Pinky" and "Imitation of Life." ... So now the mantra is going to be, "We can't find any actors of color who are light enough." Huh?

    This is very, very foul, just like on "Suits" when they introduced the Robert Zane character this season (Wendell Pierce) and suddenly the audience finds out that Rachel (Meghan Markle) is actually black! Well, then why wasn't the character/actress cast as black to begin with, instead of casting a white girl?

    Sure we can "get over" the believablity for this kid to play a biracial role: as that stands he could look like anything. Without taking away from this very talented young actor, there is an imbalance of role available for actors of different races. It may be interesting to note though in an environment as diverse as ours, roles for children of different races are nearly as limited as they are for adults. Behind the camera, beyond believablity it's important to consider creating opportunities for a variety of actors. Halle is someone who spoke about the importance of having a door opened to for her when she won her Oscar, and the importance of helping to provide opportunity. Seems like this would have been a great opportunity for one of the many talented young actors of color.
