"The guy yesterday and I said can you come make sure they come between eleven and one. Yeah no oh dice. People have learned how to deal with. I'm okay with it doesn't it doesn't read as much as it bothers me but the idea of 'cause I just being an actor like I've noticed this because I've been doing acting lately and it came to a very waiter liar. Amazing well. That's very nice. Yeah yeah is is a t- to actually have that your life and to be beholden to other people and just waiting for material and and just showing up to do it as satisfying as it might be incrementally br mentally. It's really a compromise position in a weird way especially if you're not in the power you don't have power over you know or enough traction action to really decide what you WANNA do. Yeah Yeah I mean I'd imagine you as a stand up for all these years you are telling your story. Yeah right and when you're acting and someone else's thing when you're you're you're telling a story right but it's not your story necessarily I didn't think of it in in you. Just sort of like a guy working there. Yeah yeah which I'm fine to do. Yes just from all those years of just like oh I just need to work. I'm how I'm happy to do that. But there is take it is a very special feeling to create your own stuff. So what was the process. Because I've talked. I talked to Allie. I think like wow I mean I don. I talked to notch. Yeah Yeah about the movie. But I didn't talk to Allie specifically about the movie because I think when I talked to her she was just starting to break as a comic. Yeah so when you started working on it but I I talked to Allie and she You know breast Fred in in front of me. I remember that I think I handled it pretty well. That was really in promotion for Baby Cobra. So were you guys already working on it. Then and now we weren't we weren't it was after Baby Cobra. She well after baby cobras. The New Yorker did a profile on her. That's how big she was at the New Yorker did it at the time though she was writing for fresh off the boat right I think I think she was her just stopping she. She was off fresh off the boat at that. You've been the F.. Fresh off the boat since the beginning six seasons. Yeah Yeah we just got cancelled. You did but isn't a new season. Starting this is our sixth the sixth and final. When did you hear that it was done? month back own really. Yeah Yeah So. We just finished our last episode a couple of weeks weeks ago and you did. What were the cycles? They were thirteen season or twenty first first season with thirteen after that it was mostly twenties all the way through and this last season is fifteen. So you there's enough to syndicate. Oh yeah yeah we hit a hundred. Yeah we hit a hundred and it's been so yeah. Okay okay I guess before we get to this. So how did you get cast on that during the movies after the movies or you know I was doing I was doing. Hi Jake Kasdan movie. And he's a producer Ryan. Yeah Yeah Yeah and Nice Guy Yeah Great Guy and I I was doing a bit it part another bit part in a movie that he was directing joining in Boston and his which movie. It's called sex state. Yeah Oh yeah yeah. Yeah and his A his produce produce co producer. Melvin Mar was there and who also produces fresh off the road and he'd knocked on my trailer Taylor door and I was just doing a couple of days on that movie but he handed me. This book called fresh off the boat and was like hey read this book we want to turn it in TV. Show and we're thinking about you for your dad and I was like your good luck with that. Why because there were no Asians on TV like that at the time? I mean the the the last one before that was Margaret Margaret and that was like twenty something years because through a Asian family. Yeah and so I was like that. That's a that's a great thought. I probably won't happen and yet but I will read the book and I read the book. This book's amazing. Yeah and Still not going to happen right you know and then one day I got a call. We're we're going to make a pilot we want you to play the dad and I can't believe that let's shoot a pilot and because that's all it is going to be a pilot so let's on this pilot. You know had good attitude going about that. Sure you know. What are the possible? Yeah what's the possibility of any pilot. You're going to see her right. Let alone Asian American and Asian family with me as the lead. I'm doing a day on sex tate and I'm I'm going to be the leader of a show like not going to happen boy. The notion of failure really got pounded pounded enemy and Completely okay with that's how how pounded it wasn't so used failing and and then and then we made the pilot it Lynn Shelton the great lynch directed it. It was a great Ila so fine I I was like. There's no way there's no chance we picked up the series series We got picked up the series. I was like. Let's enjoy this one season. I guess there's something good about looking at things like that. Yeah Yeah Yeah in a way that you keep your expectations in check total. Yeah Yeah and not even in a dark way right way real like let's really hit just enjoy enjoy and you did. I did I did. And then and then after that season hey we they wanted to another season. No really this. This is definitely definitely it and then we kept going for six seasons. It's so nice I did. Your parents come to the set and stuff and now did they watch it on television now. Oh yeah yeah no no did. They actually watched every episode. They they didn't tell me that recently. Really Oh my God. They watched every episode. They're they're very proud. Yeah and they're they're able to show that yeah. I mean I think they're happy because I'm taking care of myself right of course and and the families so there's no hint of them saying if it still doesn't workout workouts now nice point at this point. 'cause like you know when you think about Dr Ken. He had to deal with that she like he. He actually did he he did. It was expected of him. Yeah and now it took them years even stop. Renewing is licensed to practice medicine and then he pivoted and they I mean he kind of. That's that's kind of the ultimate what he did. You know right right his parents because he can always say like I can always go back to being don yes. He started his license essence and he amazes me. I can't believe she pulled that off but I remember the first time I talked to him. I had to fight the urge to you. Know I had some I thought I had some health issues. They came very close to me asking him for medical advice. I think I might have called him once. I right to get some medical advice as funny. I don't blame you. I don't blame you This past week I was on the verge of calling. I'm in pain man. You guys friends. Yeah so six seasons and this is it this is it so now. How did that was With with in terms of writing the you'll always be my baby which movie dual ultimately. He went to great. Yeah Yeah Yeah. It's great. I mean I think it was in the in the first four weeks thirty two million households. Nice which is real nice. I don't know what any of that who knows waiting but it add supposedly as it was I regret I thought you were great in it. I thought that character. Sort of a heartbreaking. That's a I think it's across the board relatable. Yeah Yeah Yeah you know when she goes back. Dan Van so harsh. But that was sort of living at your parents house heavily the equivalent. Yeah you like you knew that guy. I was yeah. And what was the writing process. How'd you guys do it? It was fun we you know we. We had the idea of the story. I think we just Kinda came up with together. We just we just met regularly. Talked talked through and started working on an outline and put as much of our lives in it that made sense and made up a bunch of other stuff and I it just it felt super organic and I think it helped that we were all friends and we ended up bringing in another friend. who was a writer who didn't do in real well in the industry as a writer who also Oh came from that theater company in college really and and the three of US ended up crafting the script and the there was a deal with Netflix? Or who were once we once we finish. Finish the draft at the script. Sent it to Netflix. Do you WanNa do this. And Notch go is always on board not at that point when she was attached to another movie okay because she was supposed to direct another movie as her like direct Oriole debut and then that one kind of fell through and then we gotta get her and she was cool she was open to because because we were working with her on fresh off the boat for love her and worship her in many ways and she was down and we felt also lucky. What happens now? What you've been doing? I'm unemployed but I'm feeling again. I'm feeling incredible because of the tooth because of the root canal root canal works out. I don't care today you don't give a shit tomorrow. I'll be miserable but like in in terms of I'm going to wait till they get off the porch I can feel them vibrating. I've lost my shit about this before. Uh and it's like completely within my control but I thought I took care of it yesterday. I texted the garden and I figured you'd tell them between eleven and one 'cause I got an interview Lily Tomlin. Yeah you know and I didn't want to. I just didn't want it to better them doing this on me then You know I I I like I like that stuff when I listen to podcasts and I hear sirens in the back then I sure love it but no I think it's really adds texture. I know but like I get. There's some days with this thing where you when you live in La. We realized there isn't really a an hour our to where it's not happening so close by like I noticed that now and it just waking locked into it it drives me. Nuts is if it's not my yard. It's across the street or next door we're here just ongoing leaf blower noise but you had no control over that..

"Yeah sure visions and and what they're supposed to do for sure but the parents aren't thinking of that type the my parents they don't to this day there they don't care about the issues is that I think a lot of US Asiana Maher right kind of who were born here. At least you spent a good part of our child at he right here about you. They're just trying trying to provide right. Yeah Yeah and so when you guys Writing to this we creating pieces around. Yeah Yeah were we were. I mean pretty pretty bad stuff but yeah we were writing about about kind of everything. We didn't know what the hell we were doing right. Insures we didn't. We just didn't have a a lot of us. It was new for all of us. We didn't go to plays growing up We didn't know what it meant to write a play watch. Sketch shows we watch. Sketch shows watched. Yeah we watched movies write rush TV and we were we were we. Were just kind of figuring it out and it was. It was so find because of that we know what the hell we were doing right. No no no rules. Did anybody step in. was there anybody among you that knew how to direct or anything. How many people are in the core group I think there there must have been like twelve thirteen and that corker ended they do register it as a as a club on campus. Yeah we did so you had your own room and we had space to rehearse we had A. We had a theater later on campus the North West Campus Auditorium which was kind of tucked in by the dorm and he said all this emotion me into other three of us. Yeah Yeah we put it together and I can't believe it's still going on it's crazy. Have you checked back in with it. This show's now over over the years though I mean here and there would come back and talk to the kids and I think I'm due to come back and Oh yeah yeah so they know that you're the guy that it started it. I think so. Yeah the historical figure this small picture of you somewhere hanging. Maybe now yeah yeah out of that original original crew. How many people sort of went into show business a bunch? We made a lot of parents. Math succeeded pollution. Yeah a bunch of bunch of especially from that early group you know like I don't know I'd say a third a Of of that early group ended up going into it. They still in it. Yeah Yeah Lot thriving a lot of a lot of them you know in different capacities sure. L. Writers Yeah Yeah executives you know are you guys still in touch Yeah Yeah we all keep in touch. When we had our always be my maybe premier Allie was in the journey punch of and it was our premier was in Westwood by UCLA? Punch a bunch of us from the old back in the day came to the premier and it was real cool. That's like that's great. Yeah yeah it was really cool now do you have you do you feel. They're obviously. There has been progress. Do you feel in terms of representation in terms of like 'cause it's like it's a really odd thing. I the struggle struggle for African Americans to to against this depiction of them In general in film and Television You know it was always part of the culture awareness. But I don't think that I really took into mind. You know the struggle of Asian Americans to sort of find that place. I knew there were movies but it was always really a big deal. Feel when the movie was made about multigenerational Asia family like look at the food. It always. There's always a lot of food involve food. Ah Do you feel that now. There is a broader acceptance Yeah Yeah Yeah I think I think fresh off the boats good example. Alex Alex Wong success is a great example. So I think so and You know just kind of the fact that these projects and these people are out there in the mainstream not just is performing for other Asian Americans or that's usually what happens to. Yeah it's it's amazing there's Yeah I mean it's a broad. I mean alley successes like inside. It's insane it's amazing. It's it's amazing. I mean it's not surprising No yeah right is amazing. I don't I I have to assume that those audiences dances aren't all Asian American ninety shows that she's doing in San Francisco. She's still naive. It's crazy it's crazy as we're here in. La at the one on Wilshire and Wilton. Yeah yeah it is crazy but it's great. It is great. Yeah I think it's empowering for not just women but I obviously for Asian Americans to right I mean I I don't know why AM I. Sometimes I like I. Don't talk to her about asian-americans now you're the representatives but it but it's amazing how much you know white people take for granted. 'cause you know we've all been eating Chinese food or or or Thai food or Korean for whatever we eat. Yeah actually where it starts you go to that restaurant. It just sort of a lack of empathy to connect lives in struggled to the people that yeah for sure there. Yeah Yeah I think that's why you see it so much. Our projects is like. Yeah we are so you did a Master's program. You did a master's in what in Asian American Studies. So you really Kinda hung in there with that. Yeah I was so yeah for sure for sure it was something I was very interested in. That was two years two years. Yeah and then when you just decide I'm going to ask How did you go about well? I think it was many many years after I know. Yeah I really. Yeah Yeah I mean I think You know the expectations of my parents were it was like they were just fighting up against what I really wanted to do. And and I kind of after after Grad school I just kind of work these regular jobs. I was a graphic designer Just trying to figure it out where you fighting with your folks. Yeah Yeah Yeah a little bit and then a slow slowly. I'd Kinda hint then. Yeah I think I WANNA do this and they be like no. You're not going to do well in that. It's so hard so the character in the movie is sort of like something relate to. Yeah Yeah like that could have been your destiny cutoff. Yeah it was. I mean I was. I was in my thirties thirties. Living at home. Oh yeah because I was at that point. I was like actually pursuing acting. I wasn't really telling my parents because every time I tell them they would they would Stress how much of a failure. I would be really. Yeah I mean because you look my mom worked at UCLA and she. She worked with a lot of students or former students who had just graduated. UCLA and we're now L. pursuing acting but needed a job on the side so they'd work in this accounting department with my mom. She's like reels and she she I remember. She showed me one of her coworkers. Like real like this guy's incredible. Yeah but this guy's working with me that's how hard it is and I remember looking guys real. It's like this guy is incredible so it scared me scare you straight. Yeah but I mean again. It was because she loved me and she didn't want me. You know you have a tough time. You're at home in your thirties. Yeah Yeah and I had a tough time and graphic designer. Yeah because when I was at that theatre company in College I we. You know we'd we'd may have to make flyers for our show to put them all around camp right so I picked up some like a th. That's that's your chops in pretty basic graphic graphic design skill. Carried me into these. These jobs post college. But didn't your parents know that you were kind of like you know unhappy in Wallo or floundering in that. What were they expecting to happen with the graphic? I think they were hoping that I would. You know kind of be like okay. I'm done with this. I'm Tom went to go to law school right or or you know. I think that's right now. So meanwhile I was. I was going to these auditions I was doing. I was doing Improv. I was doing stand up for a little while I did. I I I. The at a certain point alley had moved up to San Francisco. I remember this go and sheets show me all around the rooms. I perform with her at all. These different rooms in San Francisco made a bunch of You know your friends in San Francisco at the time it's okay. So you're you're you're you're sneaking around doing this because you really are doing graphic design and you'd go in Y- it when you wanted to San Francisco. How how many times do you stand up or a bunch of time? Oh really yeah. How was it for you? It was great it was so oh fine. Yeah yeah I I loved it I especially going up there and I was an and I wished that I had lived up there sometimes because just it was a real community. You know a comedian comedy city. Yeah Yeah here too. But it's different here. It's different here. I mean if you're if you were where I was at at the time you couldn't booker. Ah Fi five minutes in. I guess it was really before all the bring your shows but I was doing those British shows I was I was is performing for me up there. She featured for me once the punch on I remember. Yeah Yeah Yeah Yeah. Yeah yeah crazy crazy. So how how. How much time did you were you in college together? We weren't well. I had a master's program. Yeah I it was right when I graduated that programs when she joined joined the company. And you guys stay friends. Yeah we stayed friends like these stories. Yeah Yeah because I I've known comics for thirty or forty years but like when he both kind of do different things and still stay ahead. Yeah Yeah it's pretty. It's pretty cool. She did you feel bad for you. Were you like when you were back then. Yeah like sort of like. I don't think so. I mean she lived in San Francisco at the time because she had moved back up and I was folks. Were there her family. Yeah and I was I was just doing. I was just trying to make it down here. I don't think she you know she has sought to much of my my struggle. When when did you sort of get Like any sort of thing going like what happened. you know it was just a slow slow build you now like book commercial You know and I'd I'd be like. Oh Wow I I felt like I made it. I booked my first commercial. Yes like it was on the Asian channels all manner and I didn't even know what the Hell I was selling but I was like. Oh Man I made it and then and then you know and then a year would pass book another commercial and I'd be like Oh this one's in English and and then another one the national one. Yeah you know it's just the kind of and then a co Star on a show and then dishing didn't beat you up. I mean you weren't had had beat me up Dan every every time you come home and see your mom.

He was a busboy at this restaurant in Sausalito. This French restaurant and and then he ended up in Paris. Chris Perez studying French. I don't know I I don't fully in this part of your dad's why vague a little bit busboy. Themselves also Ledo and then Perez. Yeah and then Paris and I think the owner of the restaurant and Sausalito had something to do with him. He really liked my dad right and then he and then he ended up in. La went back to Korea. Met My mom who was still in college at the time and when she finished she came down it. Does he know French. Yeah yeah they'll do it. Yeah Yeah and we're what he ended up doing. He ended up Well he he. For a good part of my childhood he worked for this stuffed toys company just like in the offices and apparently I was named after one of his CO worker. He liked at the stuff. Yeah at the stuff toy factory and then he and then that company moved and he didn't I want to move the family out to another state so so he ended up just working a bunch of different jobs and then eventually he ran one hour photo. His own one hour photo franchise no no just one little shop one little shop on Main Street and Santa Monica and and and you know the digital age just kind of pushed him out at out. The bitter one hour photo. We had our time he was was just bad timing. Yeah like just all you know. And then and then he Now he he works He's actually had a souvenir shop and working with family members and on Hollywood boulevard really. Yeah he can't stop working. He doesn't doesn't want he doesn't want what about your mom. My Mom. She's retired and she she ended up working at UCLA for like thirty. Plus years as an accountant Fr- uh for the students store. So that's that's where the family got the the health insurance sitting area. Your mom had stable. She had the stable job. Yeah and she she. She was there for a long time. When I was a student there she was working there sibling older brother? Yeah he's a he works at a Orthodox with a at an optometrist office. In Los feeless. So you you're the you're the only one that's in show business You only one. Yeah and now what what. How did that Like because it seems to me that certainly people I've talked to children of immigrants. Yeah there's a lot of pressure. I've talked to several to to sort of really kind of like be the one that you know. That really becomes a success in. Yeah unquestionable way. Yes yes we we we weren't you have sacrificed their lives for sure I did. You did did. Yeah Yeah I mean I got a lot of that pressure growing up what they want you to do. Come on Mark Dr Low. We know this do lawyer. That was it that was it because I don't know is. Are Those still good jobs. So they still considered good jobs jobs. I mean I know the respectable the doctors are at least I don't know his lawyer really something parents went there do still they make money. I guess I mean they're they're safer for bets in terms of. Yeah if you if you if you follow this path right these classes security. They WANNA know on. They don't want it to be questionable. Sure they know that. If you take these steps you will get to this place. Yes yes if you're I mean you start a start up in an actor. Comedian like there's no path I I'd like to think that most of the judgement that parents have about that stuff is concern like more than anything else you know. It took me Nia long time to realize that you know I think early on. It was a lot of jobs. Just you don't believe in me. You don't think talented you know which they didn't but but ultimately maybe it comes from a good place it totally see they. Yeah they love us. Don't want us to to you know be broke and a burden on them. Yeah burden on them. All of those things I want is for a good part of my adult life. So when do you were you did. Did you make any movement towards being a doctor or a lawyer or did you Well when I was in college at. UCLA I I would. I was not going to be a doctor or a lawyer but I thought maybe I'd be a professor and I thought of I was thinking King of Asian American Studies History things that I was interested in at Ucla and You know I would. I would as a professor published books. You know that sounded pretty good so yeah I saw them so I I kinda started gearing myself towards that route even though at at at the time I had a CO founded this theater company on on on the college campus and I was spending most of my time doing that stuff really. Yeah so so you you studied you. Did you did study like A. What would I majored in English in like creative writing? Yeah and and then I minored in Asian American Studies. I ended up doing two two years Masters Program in Asian American Studies and they can always going to become this professor of evasion American Studies when what is the reach of that when it seems like it's pretty broad so yeah so what. Do you study exactly. Well I mean my like the primary interest was actually in like media an Asian American kind of representation in in and and the depictions of Asian Americans in media so it was always like geared towards this this interests that I had in my heart. You know you're putting the the philosophical foundation of your acting career. Yeah and then. Meanwhile I was doing this theater company company. It was this Asian American Theater Company Avenue that That That I was I was involved with on and I had co founded on campus. What was what was that called? It was called el-sisi or it was called La the coyote be that cares theater company. And and it's still going on to this day really. Yeah it was it was. The wrong was a member of that company. That's crazy. Yeah Yeah how are you older. Like older yeah then ally. She joined after I graduated. So because you guys do that. Great movie together and and And she's written for fresh off. You guys have a long. He didn't know each other in college. We didn't know each other when she was in college. Yeah and and I was just just out of out of Grad school and you know still kind of hanging around that theater company because I was comedy driven thing it it was. It was for sure but it wasn't kind of conscious like we're going to comedy. I think that was just kind of our natural. That's what we'd liked to do. And and sort of the intent of it was to to sort of bring Asian Americans together to at the time it was primarily these what we called South South campus majors which was like Asian American kids who are majoring in math and sciences and becoming doctors right you know and and who who kind of wanted to to do this right thing. Just kind of as a hobby so we had a lot of these these These kids who raining Yeah yeah who are or at least like artists who were trying to please their parents. Then we provided them this kind of outlet to kind of like I was at the time and and and yeah we just put on we wrote all our own original like plays and and material and you were performing at the school performed at the school. We did a show every quarter and it was. I mean that was that was pivotal for me that that was when I was like okay. I know I WANNA do this. I know like I'm supposed to be a professor fesser now but this is what I really WanNa do. And we'll see what did you do. Did you maintain did you keep that sort of the spirit of like Your Knowledge College of a lack of representation being one of the driving forces. Yeah yeah I I think that time it was definitely a you know you're in. I was in college. I was uh for the first time in my life surrounded by Asian Americans and very kind of Suddenly conscious to these things whereas growing up. I didn't think about right now. I didn't need weren't surrounded by Asian Americans growing now. Now I mean I had a couple of Asian friends that I grew up with but it was predominantly everyone else is a part of La That was very mixed but there weren't a ton of other Russians. Yeah so so. We grew up knowing about about race because we also you know different different backgrounds. But it wasn't like this kind of conscious Asian American an identity right and and so. Did you find that at the time when you're in college. I wave of that awareness culturally for me. Yeah General I I 'cause I what do I. I don't know much of anything that you know. You start to realize as as a white person and one that you you know now you have to admit a certain amount of privilege because it's true but you don't thinking those terms your rent. Yeah Yeah and I don't think it's racist but you're just sort of like you take everything for granted you just going through life. Yeah yeah as a white person you without. Everything's working out well. That was me growing up too though I was just this is great. Yeah I I'd Watch A. I'd Watch Indiana Jones and put myself in the boots of Indiana Jones own. Sure not not short round. You know what I mean like and I ran. I thought short rounds funny. That's not me. I'm Indiana Jones income. Grow up a little bit step out in the world. And everyone's like you're short round like no. I'm Indiana Jones. You don't get it. I got the hat and everything. Yeah I got the hat and the win- ah but you did feel you come up against that. You felt and in college. Yeah in college and I think that's what led to the formation of that theatre in college in in which sense in the sense that Because you just being in the population of college ah in actually enacting. 'cause I don't know when bullying happens and that sort of separation we're younger. Everybody sort of integrates great. Yeah but I I when you do get to college. It's odd because you start to add groups aggregate. Yes whatever reason. Yeah Yeah and you felt that their first. Yeah I mean growing up I I got bullied. Yeah bullied it wasn't always like at least in my mind because I was Asian. But you know. In retrospect that might have played a part out of it right now but But yeah I think just being around a community that was that was thinking of these things right that was thinking being of issues of representation. Yeah because it seems that you everybody gets characterized a certain way and lumped together her. Yeah but it's weird because even you saying like all these kind of these kids that were trying to please their parents by doing math majors. Biology majors had an outlet pursue. Something there was something. So the whole sort of like I think that that expectation of immigrant parents kind of helps set sort of the context of how Asian Americans are judged in a way.

Yeah that's right and Koreans here. I just don't know how that starts. Who makes the decision? Is there a newsletter. That goes out that we've decided this is it.

That are moving as quickly as they could Michigan again in Florida Grand Rapids Orlando. I don't know what the connection is. But that's what's going on you guys man and I don't know sometimes when I'm on the road I am much more relaxed still. Have I think I broke my back into places. I'm still walking and obviously exaggerating by. Guess I've hit that age. Where perhaps maybe? It's not a great idea to go heavy. Do you know what I'm saying. And it's like just stay in shape. There's no reason to go heavy. I think I popped a vertebra. I don't know what the Hell I did. I guess I could ask the crew doc. The DOC doc over at the at the shoot if there's a chiropractor situation. I've never been to a chiropractor in my life. I don't really know what to do. My my best thinking gets meet the regular doctor. Where I get x-rays like a regular person and I find out if there's anything seriously wrong and then I figure out from the x rays? What what the prognosis is probably from aback? Guy And then I waited out. That's that's how my brain works. Some people apparently are like. Maybe you just drink some green juice. I go to a chiropractor and I don't know if that's GonNa hurt me more isn't but nonetheless. I think I might have done it. I think I might fucked myself for the rest of my life in in the back area which happens to a lot of people over lesser. Things I did it. Who Roic we at the gym? I'll deal with it. I gotTA deal with it. I know it. I'm not complaining of here making a movie but I realized my life revolves around a certain amount of food panic and then a certain amount of introspection. Listen and the way. I- situate my life on the road. I I come back to the room. I walk a half a mile to the whole foods and I I make myself dinner dinner at whole foods and I sit there at. They have a beer bar at the whole foods downtown here our midtown Atlanta and I eat it and I watched the TV. There would no sound. That's how that's that. That was this evening I was actually there and I forgot to tell you about this. I was there on the night of the Golden Globes eating a sad salad at at whole foods and And next extra the only other guy sitting there was a guy wearing three different types of Cammo Komo hat different kind of Cammo shirt and different CAMMO pants and he was wearing sunglasses and he was five beers in to a six pack of cans of some Mexican beer and I told them that I had interviewed Brad Pitt and Leo Dicaprio City grew up by Brad Pitt went to different high school but they had common friends and that he he would like to listen to the podcast but he does not have a phone or computer and that Isa a country singer songwriter but real country. The conversation got weirder as the last couple of years went down. But I told him I'd I'd look out for his music without knowing his name and he said he'd he listened to my podcast without having a phone or computer so I think that went about is as good as it could with folks every year. There's probably something you want to get started on but you just let it go and let it go and then all of a sudden the year's gone it's overkill well. Don't wait this year..

I'm in Atlanta Georgia. I'm sitting here in a hotel room. Twenty two floors above the ground. I shot all day today. I was in the studio all day today doing a bit a bit of doing a seen these scenes that we're working on they have did. They revolve around songs for the movie. Respect with Jennifer Hudson myself and others and Marlon Marlon Wayans and these are long and fairly complicated scenes to shoot in that. There's no stunt involved but they're singing and there's musicians and it's a whole day to shoot To shoot some of these musical sequences take place in the studio. But I gotta be honest with you. It's been pretty great. It's like I'm just I don't know what it may be. I'm just figuring out how to be on a set maybe just accepting that. This is a job I do. It's part of the things I do with my life. I don't know what it is but Being in this character and in this situation and in the late sixties at Atlantic records recording aretha Franklin is kind of an exciting thing man and it. Just I I've just sort of locked into the gig of it and I'm not even talking the these few days but I'm enjoying the work is that okay. Is that okay if I enjoy the work. Thank God thank God him. I'm enjoying doing my work folks and I also want to tell you the w. f. Cap mugs that were available for the holiday. Sold out really fast. You know they always do so.

Brian's churning them out so there's a good chance that some of you will get these over some of the guests some guests. I have to admit it leave empty handed. I feel bad about it. I don't make choices around it. I don't decide who will get a muggy won't but some of them we've empty-handed and I don't even even telling the mugs exist. They don't know what did they know. I will say this my guest today. Randall Park You know him from fresh off the boat you. I know him from the movie that he did with Alli Wong. You'll always be my. Maybe he's been around a long time.

Do you want him to be scribbling his number on a cup in a cafe or do you want his Hans inside of Nicole's genes in front of fire so those era options Very difficult for me to actually for myself this week to be very fucking honest But anyway you have the choice. Go to twitter. At first aid kits and register you'll votes all votes count and if nothing else it's good practice for the elections in the UK and also soon to be in the US. Listen the politics of the world man this escape but I've just got to mention it registered to vote and and vote anyway. That's the end of fantastic wars Nicole. You have killed me. Dead Alive.

Jimmy Woo so I just want to point out both those names. He's not called. You Know Steven Jones Right. They have made his characters specifically Asian. Okay they have given him names the economic Yeah that's an Asian man and I'm grateful for that because there was a time when the only way you can have an Asian person in your movie will give them the Whitest name although neutralize the Asian I guess but no he's Stephen Chen and he's Jimmy. Woo and I really love him. In at Man on the walls because he plays plays opposite Scott Lang who's played by Paul Rudd.

I'm just yeah I'm doing good and what we're talking about is me me quitting vaping choosing nicotine gum and occasional nicotine lozenge doing well. I have I have sat next next to Andy in this room for the entire time that we've been here and he has pretty much never not had a vape pen in his hand hand awhile late last four years like once in a while. He'll put it in his pocket for a minute but pretty much all day every day. The vape pen is in fan since vape pens have been available and he has had a pen in his hand and I've been wanting to stop for a while but Kevin kept saying why why it looks so cool uh-huh so cool in fact at one particularly grumpy moment in the last three days I believe Kevin said can't he just vape again. Kevin is so supportive around you when you're trying to quit something. Dr Phil says you don't quit in a habit replace it okay so don't go gambling. Oh God yes. Let's just go to well. I'm going to do it. That's nice so yes we continue to be so proud of Andy and and withdraws like not nothing nothing like it's a big deal and I would say I appreciate that. Oh it's a lot and he's been a little grumpy couldn't love him more through. Thank you and Nicotine Nicotine Nicotine. First of all to nicotine is the most addictive one of the most addictive drugs chemicals on this plan honestly and the second thing is Andy the part that kills you isn't the nicotine it's all the carcinogens that you're inhaling vaping and I don't there's carcinogens with his absolute. grumpiest can't really hold a candle to how grumpy I can get. Were Kevin Loses his temper. That's right when he gets angry. How's how's Laurie happy is. She's happy that I quit happy that he's not home right right now to work weekends. We're all trying to share time with Andy there. You go a lot of stuff to talk anyone. Would you like to start with Let's talk about Natalie Portman. Okay delightful actress won the Academy Black Swan One. I believe that's correct yes and like we should get department. Yeah we would've podcast needed research department. I get one for the show show and then we can help us with the politics sweet smart love Rim Long Island from Long Island wish beautiful beautiful beautiful tolls and we were lucky to have her around the time that it was announced that she is going to be the new thor lady. There's a lady door which is kind of cool that is not a big marvel SORTA. Kevin you tell us I just have never heard of or is it going to be his partner. Don't know great. We'll find out that by marriage or a sister. You know maybe maybe they start out not liking each other. They don't like each other and then he shows her his hammer. Yes and then she likes. I don't think so what could be could be you know here's one of the things I liked about Natalie Portman when she was on the show. She showed she showed a `Paparazzi photo. Oh of herself eating giant eating giant Perito and she was like you know they always get all these shots on the red carpet or they take shots at me here. They Take Jake shots me. There and I don't know who that person is. I don't recognize that person but this is Mrs me. This is me just like eating eating a Burrito so that's what's on your DVR is and you can check it out and she's in this movie called Lucy in the sky loosely based. I guess yes on a female astronaut right right who you could say she gets a little obsessed with a boyfriend and she or maybe he's an ex boyfriend at this point and she gets in her car. Yup and she drives. I believe from Houston Houston. I this is what I'm going to guarantee you. This is half right and she drives across the country to Florida to see him and made it kidnap him to confront him. I'm sure while she was on her way. She just wanted to see him and then when she got there she thought it would be a good idea to put them in the trunk. and she decides that she needs to get there urgently. She can't really afford to pull over and stop between Houston and Florida so what she does is. She puts a diaper on so as things happen while she's driving. She doesn't have to interrupt your train and and when this when this story broke a few years ago it was memorable memorable because they were she was an astronaut and like you just think of astronauts not sort of behaving this way and then the diaper was like a fact in the story that really really caught people's attention so she's making this movie loosely based on it. The screenwriter decided to leave the diaper part of the story out of the film bad idea and people do not stop asking Natalie Portman about why there's no. There's no diaper isn't isn't that a great question to answer but I heard the movies great so the movie supposed to be great. She's an amazing actress. Here is leaf Natalie. Portman is an Oscar winner. She isn't Oscar Oscar in Black Swan. Yes believe we just talked about that. A little while ago. During the best folded just pulled a black swan. Yeah Yeah folded. Im indie head sitting on Andy's couch. Today's maybe that's not the same since the knee. I really am not I'm half half a man but here's a clip of Ellen and Natalie Portman Chatting Lucy in the sky. This is a true story right. It's an inspired heard by it's inspired by the sort of astronaut triangle love triangle that we heard about in the tabloids but it's it's not really telling of those people it was kind of took that idea and said what happens when someone comes back from space and it has to adjust to life on earth yeah because I would imagine that would be tricky to come back and you know have this reality when you kind of have a different perspective. Have you ever wanted to go into space oh I would love to. I think it's the coolest really really. I actually had a weird thing in Montecito. Once we were going this is where we both reside sometimes and we we're going to Oliver's you know the Vegan restaurant is so good and then all of a sudden the sky like lit up and this craft was like lynching and I was like the aliens coming. This is is really happening and on the street everyone was just standing looking up and it was SPACEX was landing there shuttles at that air force base there. You had any minute that we had aliens aliens in Montecito. I mean I was kind of exciting. Yes you worked with Pignataro my pal. I really love her. She's wonderful. She was so funny funny because I had that wig that you saw lip and so she'd always be like it's like looking in a mirror. Every time you're walking towards the same cut not really astronaut hair. She's got the cool version. I've got the lake this Dorothy Hamill version. There's nothing wrong with that. First of all you should explain because the the the original original story was that this woman drove across country to kind of confront for her or kidnap depending on version well there was deaf in the car car that it appeared like kidnapping her boyfriend her boyfriend and his new girlfriend and she wore a diaper so that she didn't have to stop on the way and we didn't do that in the right and everyone's like where's the diaper yeah very lake. Everyone's really upset to not see the diaper bill. You could actually say I was wearing it. You just didn't see it so that ends a controversy. That's next time so good line. Just say you've learned. I'm wearing when right now good. That's you don't even know what's happening. Natalie Portman is wearing a diaper right. Now everybody news do you ever struggle with late leaks what poise pads now but that would be a good spot back you you. Y See this is why he's the funny Guy Mr Funny Funny Funny. How crazy is that. We have an adult diaper commercial missile and he ever struggle to find exciting foolproof recipes that fit your diet plus fresh ingredients to make them happen if I would say what my I single biggest struggle as it would be that but then it's no longer because I found a company called plate..

"That she does is icon and the best album ever loss for life was not that and honeymoon had its moments but it was sort of a <hes> this this goes to the heights of ultra violence which i thought was her best album and it surpasses it. This is a beautiful album. <hes> it sounds great. <hes> it just feels personal in the way that we talked about taylor swift last week about how <hes> her songs are a bit like a douglas sirk melodrama. It's like it's not realistic. <hes> you get the sense of what she's trying to say <hes> but at no way does it feel personal or relatable. I mean this album. Does the fact that i love you is amazing. <hes> the opening track <hes> norman rockwell well <hes> california cinnamon girl a song <hes> with not the same as the print song. I assume it's not a cover. Can you believe it <hes> <hes>. It has the line like if you hold me without hurting me. You'll be the first whoever did which is such a chilling this from my diary. It was it is i also listen to this album with someone in new york that i am with how and it was very <hes> is it's very piercing to say the least so i i have gone through the gamut of emotions. Thanks a lot of delray and on on my flight back from new york. I listened to repeat. Oh my god i was about her when she came out. She was somebody who i don't. I don't wanna say dismissed by certain critics but was basic was pigeonholed as somebody buddy who has a kind of a woozy aesthetic always yes. I always say she somebody who seemed like she's recovering from a difficult nap l. performance. I felt it was the fact she's able to recovered from that performance and basically made a career out of that performance like this is who i yeah but what's interesting is is throughout the years. It's not like she ever really abandoned that feeling but she's injected it with so much more urgency what you're talking about here these lyrics that are specific pacific and <hes> commanding and i really applaud her for basically sticking to exactly who she is while advancing upon the idea of a friend described her as having performed instagram culture before other people were doing it and now the way very very what would it would have grown up on this kind of billy as you know. <hes> is still child. Yes <hes> she's on miss frizzle school bus right now. Thank you for you for your real life you for you know it's just that all all those things that she does now and the way that she's been presenting her music are how people present themselves on instagram and social media yeah just very over very mosul just very thing aloof but also just like <hes> sometimes <hes> like heart rendering a very fuck it was. It's just like opening like here. I am like opening so that was very freddie krueger of me but <hes> <hes> again we stand people who give us albums because again albums continue to be a dying art as much as we celebrate. I'll say we celebrate a new one every three months. Yes yes <hes>. This is an album that feels like an album. It feels like a moment. <hes> and i don't think we give her enough credit to for being just a fucking fantastic song writer yeah. She's fabulous so we have me wanting to check it out. As oprah would say that is a religious experience lot of del rey is sister. I never had the mother and the friend that everyone does breath. Don't know i go and continue doing what you do. Del rey mary the see uh-huh like she's somebody who's very like you know like she'll have an entire about how she died at the beach. You know whatever intrigue about her. I honestly you know would never wish on a del ray <hes> l. but i hope i'm still allowed to listen to her posthumous album. Oh yeah. I think we already have a couple of them. Yes yes her ghost writing to wear she's casper's at that's our show <hes> we will see you next week..

"This seems like it's someone who got a job but maybe didn't know what interviewing people is like and also is just basically basically obsessed with a soundbite right all of the questions feel like just something you can fit into a tweet that would say something about troy savan that we can quote back to each other because he asked a straight man man if he likes the rock movies and you know like it. Just i don't know the line of questions. We'll do wayne johnson trying to get away from the rack. Yes <hes> i mean there is something to be said about. The fact that troy apparently did have a tweet that he deleted once when bloom came out <hes> he wrote like hashtag bops about bottoming <hes> aw but he deleted it <hes> i mean and the song is right. Take a trip into by guarded. Whatever it's about taking it sounds like it so it could what a nice way to say it colorfully artistic way to paint that picture bloom or route yeah <music>. I'm jack. I'm a harried guard. I just want everybody to have a good time off. Ah but there's something very different ed him having fun on social media then you know the professionalism that you would expect from an interview and also oh by the way there's still a way to have a productive conversation about explicitly bottoming that isn't just i need you to reveal something about yourself for my readers right. <hes> and i think it's also if you pick the right celebrity for that. If it's someone who is ben frank about sexual positions or whatever it's it's a part of their dogma than shore. Ask them that but just a pop star interviewing them. It depends because i don't think that people would ask like no one's asked that's like little kim and trina you know like the female rappers cardi b. Everything music bit a lot of places the and she's even been with a lot of different races different races watches break disappears in her mouth but but no one's asking her to elaborate on that no one's asking her to go into detail right. That's the point. I'm trying to make an interview. It reminds me of when nikki moniz was on watch. What happens live it great. Andy cohen asked her about andy peop- some question about whether she thought someone gave him a look back in titus so yes so inclusion i just feel like like the idea that the lines have been blurred so much on social media but tweed sort of who can write about culture and the way we talk about it with each other that there needs to be some sort of separation into corn when you're actually writing for an outlet on gate issue yeah right and just because it's not as taboo anymore to be a candidate horny thirsty person on twitter and that somehow that sometimes those tweets get picked up or you know. You may be applauded for writing those things that doesn't mean there <hes> it. It's journalistically astute way to start a conversation with the gay popstar. Yes sean if troy's savant had tweeted needed. I want shawn mendez to choke me right. Maybe then you can ask him about that. <hes> no anyone can wait for. Anyone interested me about me wanting a job because because sean i won't as doesn't like come out every like twice a year stating that he's not gay right. He's giving tons of interviews. I feel like this whole camila thing. Which i still think is a p._r. Thing but this whole thing is just why would you. I don't understand why you fan those flames after this guy has repeatedly it seems like like i said twice a year like hey. I'm not gay. I'm not gay like why rope him into this abusive. At this point borderline harassment <hes> i will say on the commune front a lot of people when you say that you think that relationship is a p._r..

"Choice of on who is normally normally i feel like wandering through a field of flowers job listening to material girl by madonna and cam patras with his little scarlett johansson face yes is he is not happy this way <hes> recently he took to twitter to criticize gay express us a new zealand l._g._b._t._q. Magazine over there quote disappointing and inappropriate coverage of him it all started when the interviewer for the magazine asked him what he thought were wildly invasive inappropriate questions about his sex and queer culture and i sort of agree i. I think it was crazy interview. I mean some of the questions are just straight up things you ask somebody into grinder. Yes it seemed light. The interviewer was trying to create a sort of familiarity. Yeah i don't even have with most people now now. <hes> before we get into the actual thing that upset them the most it starts out by asking him about does he have a crush on starred mendez and when they met did things get steamy between that wow so the question the question is could you please out. Shawn mendes was gas slighty slighty. It felt like interview in playboy in nineteen ninety-three right yeah cosmo cosmo. The line of questioning at this interviewer did was very that's where my mind went. Magazine uses the word steamy yeah yeah outside of a grades anatomy scriptwriter in two thousand five. Let me say jackie collins but what really made him upset was with the interviewer asked him if he was a fan the end of will and grace because he's a faggot <hes> and whether or not he was a top or a bottom and troy said i thought about asking the interview you're about his absolute favorite sex after that last question but then i remembered how wildly invasive strange and inappropriate that would be didn't stop him though well. I think he should have asked him. Honestly i feel like there's a there's a way to this media thing and you know he answered all of the questions then to only go go back on twitter there and do this rant and i feel like sometimes it could be as simple as i'm not answering that <hes> you know why play the game why feed into it and i i imagine it's hard for celebrities to know they can turn down questions. 'cause it is awkward when you're doing q._n._a. There is a semblance of a real conversation occurring and you wanted to feel like you're talking to a friend because that's how you probably the best interview but at the same time it's not a friend that conversation you know it is business and you should be able to just turned down a question over the phone right person so so it seems like it would be easier when you're not you know in person making eye contact to just be like i'm not answering that especially when the person you're dealing with basically sounds like a mcdonald's drive through they just sitting in your living room or something just. Where did you ask me. I love the interview just describes it as i'm gonna pass on that one and it's the last question but also i feel like the interviewer probably would have loved if troy asked him that question too yeah. It seemed like he was fishing for date. Good lordy right. Maybe which lends itself to this whole thing surrounding the shawn mendez question two right. I feel like so much of the way that we cover gay. Male celebrities. Now is just this idea that maybe you could date them. They're available yet. It's i mean it's the way that you see people insisting that shawn mendez is gay or constantly like wondering what he's doing and like all the time it's sort of the idea that if he were he would somehow be accessible to you and you are still some gates weeding on your shift at starbucks glendale right no kidding. I also just want to say that. One thing. I liked liked about troy. Savant response was he didn't dismiss the outlet wholesale and say oh you're just trash period and he said he didn't like this line of questioning which is so much different than that time. Olivia munn responded to go fug yourself and basically tried to repaint them as you know <hes> patty scandalous you know superficial..

"Are are really really haven't been done before so when fresh off the boat was renewed your co star constance wu you're going there. I have to add to ask. Were you surprised by her her reaction when she took to twitter. We all know what happened. We all saw everything unfold. Were you surprised by her reaction. If someone who works firsthand with her <hes> <hes> yes and no you know. I was surprised that <hes> she took to twitter to express that but i i wasn't surprised i i get it. I get <hes> those feelings. I get like <hes> <hes> conan's shows for six seasons seasons it. Just you know it when new opportunities arise arise and you can't i like i totally understood where she was coming from and i just think it was just just a big misstep in terms of of <hes>.

A constant is reaction to the show getting renewed renewed and you were in an era where we don't expect most shows to go on for three years. Yeah <hes> and i know you had said that. You thought the show was ending after five and it's just weird to an era where it's like oh this show is going into sixty. Yeah yeah yeah yeah.

"You are in so many things <hes> which is great because as we've seen so many sides of acting like it's fun seeing you in marvel movies you fresh off the boat and now a romantic comedy <hes> yeah yeah. What do you enjoy doing the most. What's the epicenter of the randall park experience you know i think that whole experience with always be my baby was was the best oh really yeah and i think in part because i was doing it with my friends <hes> you know <hes> with alley and a notch and and just people i i really <hes> just love and and i was kind of involved from beginning to end and that was really fun. Did you meet the noncha- when you started fresh off the boat. I have been a fan of hers since <hes> don't trust the b thirty three. She's chronic t._v. Show yeah she's a she's a genius like chest comedy genius and and the nicest is person you'll ever meet yeah what the hell is making just something with a bunch of friends i mean what does that bring out that you wouldn't normally have in a in a movie <hes> it just just like a comfort level and and <hes> just you know you can vetus feel more free taking chances and and and <hes> and just laughing all the time you know it was just it was just so joyful. <hes> you know like you know you know wondering eh people's motives are are you just kinda know them and and and it was just fine. It's kind of a dream just to keep working with friends you know. Could you tell us a bit about how how you started in comedy and like. Did you see yourself <hes> being able to be like a romantic lead <hes> well you know i started acting and doing comedy and writing and college at u._c._l._a. And i had co founded this asian american theater company while i was there and we just we wrote all of our own original material and a lot of it was comedy and we got to play everything you know we got got to be everything and it was just so kind of free and <hes> at that time i thought yeah you know if i ever pursue this professionally. I i would love to be able to do this and then play everything and be a romantically and be a just whatever and <hes> and then years after i graduated. I finally decided hi to kind of pursue. It professionally and i realize that they don't see me the same way. I'm not getting the same opportunities i it did on that stage in college. You know <hes> so so it took a while and ultimately i kind of had to write it to to to do it. So what do you think makes a good good rom com <hes> well. I think a lot of people have kind of said what they love about our movies that says things different but i do like find a lot of comfort in kind of predictable elements around <hes> you know and just seeing how uh-huh elements are are are done. I like that stuff you know it's very comforting and <hes> <hes> so i'd say a combination of the both hitting those beats that we are now but also bringing something new to the table you know <hes> having an asian american uncouple for example you know different and and and and incorporating that <hes> you know their backgrounds and their you know into the into the story line and and <hes> it just makes it more interesting but at the same time you have familiar beats yeah i would say if you just took a cursory look at your career and all that whatever l. the guest roles you've pat on things all the different types of roles you've had i would just naturally think oh well. He's comfortable doing everything but my question for you is what is disorienting for you as an actor. What is the most difficult thing you can encounter sure about working on a project gosh. That's a good question <hes> <hes> gosh i don't. I don't know i look are you throwing on a set of like oh brandel doesn't know what to not really because by the time i'm on the set it's like i you know i've kind of like gone in thinking king.

"Particular so it's like what is this really all about and he mentioned his wife did not like the trans jokes but he's still followed through and did them and then he made this very off-base asian joke and you know it just seemed intentionally obtuse just has to hearken back to say oh. I talked to my gay friends for example. I talked to my gay friends and none of them had dollhouse. You know hit above their head. It just seemed like i said intentionally obtuse. It's like david you know what you're doing. I don't think that he is. I don't think there's a joke within the joke right. I don't think that this is like smart comedy. If you know what i would actually say the worst thing i can say about this special is that it's exactly what you expect from a past as prime comedian ah note for note and he was so specifically exciting and the comedian at one point so for him to be such a cliche of who that person would become fifteen years after there is super disappointing. It is because it's particularly when he was defending louis c._k. Right and we've heard the new louis c. k. standups of it. It's it's been basically louis c. K. stand up right yeah. It's defending yourself against accusations attacks entering yourself. Yes who aren't interested in ed. It's interesting that he opens up with two quotes on the screen one from kendrick lamar and it says pulitzer prize winner and then one from <hes> jay z. <hes> billionaire and it's it's just his insistence of i'm rich now of course he's acquainting <hes> his friendship with louis c. k. Hey kevin hart so like things. He actually wants to protect now. That's where he is now. He's really coming around the position of on rich billionaire. Stop being mean to my billionaire air france. Thank you yeah. It was very talented that the audience like collapsed when he brought kevin love yeah no shade but if you think kevin hart is the funniest person ever right now. I have even more question yeah i mean the joke is the only one that i kind of chuckled dead how he mentioned that kevin refused to apologize and then went on this press tour for the next six weeks from everything from a._m. To d._m. To down with robin roberts to apologize that was the only thing that i kinda was like you know but everything else just made me uncomfortable especially in particular the molestation jokes. I didn't know oh you know he did say <hes> he was talking about being poor as a kid and he said he asked his dad for three dollars and he didn't have it nicos dead. How are we alive but that was kind of funny yeah and the thermostat thermostat turned up to thirty six degrees and things but like you said lewis it it. It's the delivery a lot of the time caress intro and the a delivery to the jussie smollet stuff wedding that was funny but then once again the array of black queer people when he said the the games were like why are you also silent about defending jesse small let <hes> it was because black people knew that he was lying about that shit. I saw every black person. I know posting about it. I didn't even see <hes> aside from queer people you thought jesse passed away the way my <hes> twitter timeline on an instagram time-line memory actress every actor was posting their selfish with him and sending them their well wishes so it was in particular black men because i believe that it was steve harvey survey who made a video totally erasing you know i think the accusations were that these men that attacked jesse were being homophobic and raises..

Wong, Netflix And Randall discussed on The Frame

"Wong, Randall park have been friends since college and Wong wrote for fresh off the boat, the ABC sitcom that park stars in for years, they talked about making a romantic comedy together and a twenty sixteen profile of long in the New Yorker. She described it as our version of, when Harry met Sally now that idea has become a reality Wong and park's star in the Netflix movie always be my maybe, and they co wrote the screenplay with Mike ogm co when Wong and park. Stop by the frame studios. She explained how the idea for always be my maybe came together, we hadn't talked about it in detail, and it wasn't until, you know, a little bit before I did that interview that a distinctly remember Randall saying, you know, we should we should really do this at the time I was writing on fresh off the boat, and I hadn't spent that much time acting. Well, I had acted on camera. A lot of people didn't know me as an. Actress and I thought Randall meant when he when he said, we should really do this. I thought he meant, you know, I want you to an eye to write a starring vehicle for me to do a rom com with, like Anne Hathaway or something. And then he was like, no, I think we should star in it, and we should write it together. That's very sweet. Yeah. Not in Hatheway alley or van Hatheway is unavailable alley. Well, no. Yeah. I mean I I've known alley for so long. I've always known. She was a great actress on top of everything else that she does so great. And it was, you know, we're, we're close friends and my dream has always to work with my friends. So it was something that I really would have loved to have happened. But I didn't expect it to kind of half in the way it did from that New Yorker article, yeah. That kind of caught fire right? I mean how long did it take to actually come together? I mean, it's three years later, but in Hollywood time, that's actually not that slow. Well after that article got picked after that section of the article got picked up by all these other outlets. We both got inundated with calls from just different people in the industry and studios. And there was just a lot of interest for the script, and we didn't have a script. Log line. Yeah. We had nothing. So what's worse have interest in the script that doesn't exist or have a script that exists that has no interest? I mean it the position we were in very unique and we feel really lucky have been Netflix took it off the table right away. What was the movie that you wanted to get made? What was the story that was important you because scripts go through Lucians people have notes, you know, what was the core thing that you wanted to make sure you preserved? I mean, we had always talked about, like our when Harry met Sally. It's a it's a movie that we both loved, but we wanted to incorporate our parts of us as much of us, you know, in our lives in it as possible, and just kind of tell a, an authentic romantic comedy. What does that mean authentic? Is that athetics your lives to your culture authentic to who you are? Because there's so many different ways authentic, our, our experiences and in our lives. I don't know. I guess with the question of authenticity, it, it's really hard for me to talk about it. But it just kind of all comes down to instinct, right? So it's like, for example, for that meal in the beginning that young, Sasha. My character makes for herself where it's like spam and rice, and fully cocky, it's like I didn't make a movie to be like, I wanna make movie with offending food moments. You know. But when it came down to talk to props about what that would look like it's like, well, this is what feels right? You know, these are the clothes that feel right? This is the girlfriend says the dad that feels rate, you know, and I guess, because we care about authentic city all of that will will come through when it comes down to the decision but we don't. Yeah. We first and foremost for me. At least I just wanted to make a movie with my friends that tells a great story. You know all those details that, that speak to our desire to, like, have authenticity. Just it, it just comes through, hopefully in a natural authentic way. But it's important to note that the spam is sliced. Exactly right. Very even and then the rice when you play your rice for your own meal, that nobody is watching you put it in ram akin an invert it. So it's actually looks like it's in a restaurant, it's a form, so it might be rice and spam. But it's presented us, if it were in a restaurant, and that's specific to her character and showing how she has a love of presentation of food from the very beginning, you know, and that's not like necessarily like an Asian American growing up in San Francisco thing, that's a Sasha thing. Right. But there's also this detail about, do you slice food with scissors or do you chop it with a knife. Which is a cultural thing in terms of how people present. Food chop food. Right. It's funny because those things when we wrote them at they didn't mean that much to me, your carry that much weight. But now, we're hearing people like I love the part. The part where the take off their shoes when they go in the house and carry the shoes, and they put the shoes back on, when I go to the backyard. We're like, okay. Okay. Those were things that we were like, okay. We got to have a scene where they're cutting. It wasn't bad. But it was like, we had a scene, where the mom is cooking. And how, how does the mom cook? Well, my mom cooked like this. Okay. That makes sense. You know, that's how I think that's how those kind of authentic moments made their way into the movie, but in some cases, and certainly in Hollywood history, those moments are often incredibly hard to preserve that there is such a bias to take any story that might be authentic to a certain group of people and make it white. I mean all the way around the story that everybody that third default mechanism. That's why it's so important people focus way too. When the question comes about like diversity focus way too much on the talent on camera, you know. And it's like I think people really have to be paying attention, more caring more about the people behind the camera because when you have people from diverse perspectives behind the camera, it's like it's not this battle, then it's like, what more can you add to the scene to make it feel more real and it's? Not this like, well, they should be wearing shoes in the house. Or, you know, I want her to be eating a hamburger, something like that to me more mainstream. I mean it's just it's just easy. That would have been so
