The New Netflix Series I Cannot See

Netflix has released a trailer for its new four-part series All the Light We Cannot See, which takes place during the Holocaust.

I would have likely watched this if not for the casting of Mark Ruffalo in the film..as one of the good guys:

Loberti and Sutton play older and younger and versions of Marie-Laure, a blind French girl who flees Nazi-occupied Paris with her father Daniel LeBlanc, played by Ruffalo. They take with them a legendary diamond they hope to keep away from the Nazis  but the father and daughter are chased by a cruel Gestapo officer, who wants the diamond for his own selfish gain. Marie-Laure and Daniel soon find refuge in the seaside city of St. Malo, where they move in with a reclusive uncle who transmits secret radio broadcasts as part of the Nazi resistance.

Is it too much to ask that they not cast someone who constantly demonizes the Jewish state – crossing the line into antisemitism territory and engaging in apologetics for some modern day Nazis – in a heroic role for in a Holocaust series of all things?
