Belated links to some interviews I did...

In November, I had an interview posted on the website AARisings, a site about Asian-Americans in the entertainment industry. Here is a direct link to the interview.

Here, I appear briefly in a video interview conducted at San Diego Comic Con about the whole Last Airbender controversy. Go to the Racebending site to find out more.

Dude I'm one hundred percent with you on Air Bender. That flick won't even get rented by me. If they cast a bunch Cubans as stars of Lord of The Rings their would've been airplanes flying into New Line studios. I think the casting is ridiculous and head scratching.

If Chappelle was still on the air he would be having a field day with this one.

Yea I don't get that at all. There are tons of talented Asians who don't get the opportunity to play major roles normally, and this would have been a good opportunity for them.

Pretty lame indeed.

If anything they've reduced the potential success of the project by playing it 'safe'.

BROCASSO-This sets back race relations several decades. From Amos and Andy, to John Wayne playing Genghis Khan. It comes back to some executive's decision to not hire non-whites. I would encourage everyone to show their displeasure with this either by
boycotting or letter writing.

Yeah, I'm sure Chapelle would have a great time with this one!

想事情-Spam sucks

Jelter-There are so many people they could have discovered who could have filled these roles perfectly. It's an opportunity wasted. It's not like the kids they hired have long resumes, so the often used excuse of "there aren't many Asian kids with experience" doesn't wash.

Dominic Bugatto-You're so right. My hope is that this becomes fodder for ridicule across the world and the producers are shamed into never pulling this shit again.

甜 -Spam STILL sucks!!

Thanks to Todd,Jelter and Dom for your comments, and sorry for the late replies.

...and to the 2 spammers---YOU SUCK!
