"Star Trek"

In the story, the captain of the star ship is white American.

Chinese people watch films made outside of China because they enjoy them and find the characters portrayed to match the story line. If you took an established story line and cast it with a Chinese lead AFTER it had become a box office success then you could predictably fail if you were replacing a European character. If Chinese people want to see Chinese actors playing leads then there are a number of extremly successful international actors to choose from. However, perhaps if the Chinese promoted their own films (and themselves) more then there would be a Chinese lead appearing more frequently.
