DL: Ken Jeong joins Crazy Rich Asians [CRASN]   RazorHawk on May 12, 08:22

wow after like 5000 actors whove joined, we finally get one who actually has a starbond {nm}   islander on May 12, 08:25

MYEOH. That speaks to the lack of quality roles for Asian-Am actors. {nm}   Antibody on May 12, 08:31

Pretty sure they get all the roles in their native countries. {nm}   AlexanderC on May 12, 08:42

Asian-Am are Americans, not native Chinese, Koreans... working in those countries. {nm}   Antibody on May 12, 08:46

Pretty sure in Asian dominant countries they get all the roles. Asians r about 5% of U.S. population {nm}   AlexanderC on May 12, 08:43

Asian-Am are not even getting 5% of the lead roles in studio films. {nm}   Antibody on May 12, 08:50

Maybe they should try harder then. Leave it to you to always point out racism where none exists {nm}   tteddy286 on May 12, 09:09

They're not even considered for those roles. The privilege is institutionalized. {nm}   Antibody on May 12, 09:20

How many Americans get quality roles within Asian studio companies? 5%? Institutionalized Asian privilege there? {nm}   TJNFL1 on May 12, 10:17

There are 110,000 Americans in China, which / 1.37 B is 0.00008%   Antibody on May 12, 10:40

just off top of head: bale, rudd, cusack, willis, damon, have had leading roles in chinese films {nm}   islander on May 12, 10:51

JKNOX, ABROD {nm}   RogerMore on May 12, 10:54

Are these financial decisions made by the Asian studios? {nm}   TJNFL1 on May 12, 11:20

For GRTWL, DRGBL, SKPTR, certainly. But what does it have to do with Asian-Americans getting roles in American films? They're American. {nm}   RogerMore on May 12, 11:31

Maybe they are not going to draw the box office desired, and that could be for many reasons including profits. {nm}   TJNFL1 on May 12, 14:26

Sure, which means a lack of quality roles for Asian-American actors. {nm}   RogerMore on May 12, 14:45

White actors without box office draw are cast over and over again. {nm}   Antibody on May 12, 15:28

his TV show was canceled yesterday. {nm}   RazorHawk on May 12, 08:32

(it was just the daily casting news for movies with no-names (Who?") are kinda annoying) {nm}   islander on May 12, 09:16

Gemma Chan, Jimmy Yang and Awkwafina aren't no names. {nm}   Antibody on May 12, 09:21

"Awkwafina" shouldn't be name at all {nm}   daveart on May 12, 09:51

I have no idea who they are so they are no-names to me. {nm}   JDolphin on May 12, 13:32

Gemma is the lead star of Human. Jimmy is on Silicon Valley. {nm}   Antibody on May 12, 15:25

Haven't heard of the Human show, haven't watched more than a few minutes of Silicon Valley {nm}   JDolphin on May 13, 00:05

and still no Greta Lee {nm}   slipping jimmy on May 12, 09:38
