Asian actors who have made my list

1. Rob Schneider, for those of you who don't know, he's part Asian. Enough said.

2. Jet Li, Jet Li, how could you? Not only are you going to be the villain in the Mummy 3, you're now in some horrible movie with that white guy from The Transporter. You quit doing movies like Fearless for this?

3. Jackie Chan, Rush Hour. Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. Fool me three times...

What? Jet Li is gonna be in the Mummy 3? Noooooooo, I don't want to watch that movie.

I've been wondering if you've seen since you left Taiwan... I'm kind of surprised they're getting away with that ad campaign.

Also, is Mako off the hook since he died?

Bleh - Last time I trust the preview button to show that my link syntax is correct.

Awww. I like the Rush Hour movies. Even though they're horribly stereotypical and probably setting us all back by decades and decades. But we always knew my taste was suspect. =p

Vox, yes it's true, Jet Li took the lead villain role for The Mummy 3, at least this is what Angry Asian Man tells me.

Jeff, I had not seen the Hot Pockets Dojo, unfortunately I guess I'm not that surprised that they're getting away with that ad campaign. Have you seen those trailers for Balls of Fury, I think pseudo Orientalism is back in fashion again.

Mako's off the hook. If he's dead he can't embarrass me further. Although perhaps I should have added Gedde Watanabe to the list.

Mag, well, I guess Rush Hour 1 was ok, but 3 just seems like pushing it, ya know?

What about Chow Yun Fat? Surely appearing as he did in Pirates 3 qualifies him for this list. Or as I said to my boss, "I came out of that movie and all I could say was 'CHOW YUN FAT WHYYYYYYYYYY' like Nancy Kerrigan!"

I'm still mad at Chow Yun Fat for leaving the John Woo movie. They replaced him with Takeshi Kaneshiro, who's much hotter than Chow Yun Fat, but still, it's not the same.


But yes, he makes the list. I don't know why I forgot.
