I'm so happy for those asian people who make it, but there is still a long way to go, :( it's disapointing that half of those celebs are mixed asian/white anyway.

Im v proud of Zhang ZiYi for making it HUGE, Lucy Liu, and I think that japanese girl with the huge eyes who played Gigi in Kill Bill is really pretty - but she hasn't 'made it' yet...

Despite the pics u guys posted, honestly asian in hollywood is like zip and it will continue to be like that. Most of the people aren't well known or even if they were mix asian, it's not a known thing to ppl anyway so its like zero difference. There just isn't enough asians over here for an audience compared to other groups. And everytime they put an asian on, it's like the western pick of it and they choose the ppl they think is the most "asian" if you know what i mean. Like their perspectives are always the same, it shows in every film an asian is in. They never cast any good looking ppl b/c they don't really care to appreciate the better asian beauty.

Everything has to have a market plus the masses aren't that enlightened to be open minded about things anyway so they wouldn't want to see anyother race on TV besides their own, unless it was some kind of overhyped gutter thing they think will spark interest.

That movie Memoirs of a Geisha, goodness its b/c it had provocative elements in it that Hollywood wanted to make it into a movie in the first place. Even tho it is for entertainment, ppl should know movies affect perspective of the avg audience who doesn't distinguish reality from entertainment, thus deepening asian stereotypes of demure women and prostitutes. You guys wonder why asians can't make many breakthrus or even be looked like a normal person is b/c westerners choose to put us in same image over n over n it affects whether ppl are even interested in seeing asians in anything other than immigrant roles.

Maybe one day one of you guys can change that, who knows but for now, its ridiculous to hype up asian celebrities in hollywood b/c there is none, none significant at all. Be real about it.

true true...but Harold and Kumar was awesome...first unstereotypical asian roles in Hollywood..though there were stereotypes within the films, but it wasn't the main characters themselves. i think that movie did pretty good because it seemed pretty popular at my hs..just wasn't a grammy type film..it's more of a by word of mouth thing..

Yeah....Asians are almost always given the "ASIAN role". We'll be nerds, kung-fu ninjas or the quiet wife/friend.

But I just hope that one day, Asians WILL make it. Because this is the second-gen. Before, it was difficult to make it because their English skills were shaky.

But now that a lot of them have grown up in places that aren't Asia, it makes them a bit more acceptable to Hollywood.

Although it does suck that they have to be 'westernized' to make it.
