Asian-Americans aren’t necessarily well-represented in Hollywood. In fact, you could say they’re pretty poorly represented, with few lead roles written for Asian actors, while plenty of those originally Asian roles are given to white actors in a little phenomenon called “whitewashing.” There’s a whole stigma around Asian men being believable romantic leads due to centuries of media and pop culture emasculating them, but that’s a whole conversation I’ll get to later.
But everything’s coming up, Millhouse. First, we had The Big Sick and Master of None showcasing South Asian men in complex lead roles, romantic and otherwise. Soon, we’ll be getting Crazy Rich Asians, a rom-com which boasts an all-Asian cast. And now, Netflix is gifting us with another Asian-American-led rom-com starring the always hilarious Ali Wong and Randall Park.

Though production on Ant-Man and the Wasp is slated to begin soon, we don’t know much about the sequel so far. Paul Rudd is returning as the Ant-Man himself, Scott Lang, and he’ll be joined by Evangeline Lilly suited up as The Wasp on the big screen for the first time. Plus, Michael Douglas is returning as The Wasp’s father, former Ant-Man and scientist Hank Pym, and Michael Peña is returning as Scott’s criminal buddy Luis. Now a new cast member has entered the mix, and the character he’s playing raises some questions.
Randall Park, who can currently be seen on the ABC sitcom Fresh Off the Boat, has been cast as SHIELD agent Jimmy Woo, a character who has been part of Marvel Comics since the 1950s, getting involved with various superheroes and villains over the years. But wasn’t SHIELD completely disbanded after Captain America: The Winter Soldier? Read More »

For the first time since 2002, Goldie Hawn is returning to the big screen. 20th Century Fox has just released the first trailers for Snatched, which stars her and Amy Schumer as a mother and daughter who go on vacation to “South America” (I don’t think anyone in the trailers ever gets more specific than that), only to get kidnapped. But don’t worry — it’s a comedy, so everyone’s probably going to turn out fine.
Snatched has a lot of interesting talent behind the camera as well, including director Jonathan Levine (50/50) and screenwriter Katie Dippold (The Heat). Watch two Snatched trailers — one red-band, one green-band — after the jump. Read More »
While many are looking ahead a couple weeks to the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story in just two weeks, some may be looking forward to getting absolutey crazy with a raunchy, R-rated holiday comedy, and Office Christmas Party will try to come through next week.
A new trailer for the comedy from Blades of Glory directors Josh Gordon and Will Speck has just arrived, and while it shows more of the party shenanigans that happen in an office in downtown Chicago, it also shows more of the outside happenings, including Jennifer Aniston assaulting some guy, and Karan Soni (the cab driver from Deadpool) trying to get a hooker from Jillian Bell (22 Jump Street).

Rewind the clock just over a year. It’s December 10, 2013 and /Film is on the set of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg‘s The Interview. Everyone on set is upbeat, laughing, and more than willing to discuss that this film deals with some big issues. But no one has any idea what will transpire over the next 12 months, turning what should have been a simple, dirty comedy into a mass controversy and eventually a potential shift in the way studios look at movies.
On the set, we saw James Franco and Randall Park film what we didn’t at the time realize was a pivotal scene. It’s set in Kim Jong-Un’s tank where Dave Skylark (Franco) realizes Kim (Park) loves Katy Perry. We ran that article back in October along with an interview with Franco, Rogen and Goldberg. You can read each at those links. But much more happened on set besides that. We talked to the writer, producers, co-stars and more. It just so happens, as is the case with many set visits, lots of times some content feels superfluous.
However, now that The Interview is in theaters and on demand, we felt it might be worthwhile to dust off one of these interviews. A roundtable discussion myself and several journalists conducted with Randall Park, the actor who portrays Kim Jong-Un in the film. He spoke at length about the issues in playing a real person, his thoughts on Kim, what he thinks the dictator would think of the movie and much more. It’s a solid interview that’s even more interesting with the knowledge of what would happen in the next twelve months. Below, we invite you to read our on set Randall Park The Interview interview.

The right director and the right script don’t mean anything without the right actor. Performers are the ones who bridge the gap between the minds behind the camera and the ones in front of the screen. It is their personalities that draw us in, their expressions that tell the story, and their faces that we remember.
There were no shortage of great performances this year, across all genres and all budgets. Inevitably, a few stood out above the rest. See our list of the best performances of 2014 after the jump. Read More »
