It seems like that there are a lot of foreigners starring in American TV shows and movies now. I'm talking about major movies and tv shows. Foreigners from London, Australia, both black and white actors. Has anyone else noticed this trend?

Sure, but I wouldn't call it a new trend at all.

I just really noticed it. A lot of the larger films like Star Wars, Wonder Women, have foreign actors

Okay? Just an observation, or is there a problem with it?

They are cheaper to hire? Also, haven't you noticed that aliens always speak with British accent? It's some sort of fixation on British accent I'd be more curious about, than where actors came from. Aliens - BA, scientists - BA, villains - BA, intelligence - BA. So on. Sort of "superiority" accent.
