Anyone else reading The Better Angels of Our Nature? Butter, this book.
You turn on the television, you go to the movies, you don't see a lot of Asians. So you have to deal with that. But I want to emphasize on the other hand, it's tough being an artist, and it's tough being an actor. The odds are against you at every turn, and being Asian is one of many limitations that you have to deal with. I get frustrated with them, but I also try to look at it as my opportunity, you know? The way I deal with this particular Rubik's cube, maybe some good can come of it. I hope to leave the situation better than I found it. If that's on my tombstone, I'd be very happy.
Maybe American Pie was the closest thing I've had, because it led to some more comedy jobs. It gave me more comedy cred, because everyone saw that movie. It was an incredibly successful series of movies. I just happened to, you know, stumble into that movie, really. And Harold and Kumar probably wouldn't have happened if it wasn't for that movie. Because the writers saw me and started following me career, and had me mind when they wrote it. I really do feel like I'm one of the few people Hollywood where... it really has been a ladder for me, rung by rung. As close as you get in L.A. to climbing a ladder steadily.
Is it me or does midnight in Paris linger on rachael mcadam's rear a lot?
One thing I'm oddly encouraged by though, there's a lot of Asians in commercials. The reason why I think that's important...you know, there's the casting where they say, okay, we're going to make our show look cosmetically multicultural. We're gonna try and do this thing that you guys keep asking for.
My parents always complain that I forget to tell them that I'm on certain things. And they're right. I quite frequently forget to tell them I did something. Especially television, I don't keep track when something's coming on. I do it, then forget about it. Movies, I have to do something like this, so I'm very aware that a movie's coming out. But you know, I do an episode of something and I'll forget about it, then it'll air, and then my mom's friends will call my mother. And then she gets very angry that I didn't tell her that I was on TV.
It's difficult having to hustle for jobs. Not knowing when the next job is coming in. It's hard. There are not enough roles out there. I try not to get wrapped up in it or I'll get depressed.
Married friends divide the world between single and married. The singles table is always so motley, and you feel undignified.
With music I get to feel real ownership with what I do. I write it, I perform it and even if it is crap, it is mine. With acting, you are a small part of the creative process, and sometimes it is hard to feel like you are making an impact.
