One thought on “Asian-Americans in American Cinema

  1. I read this and thought it was pretty good. He mentioned a few actors almost as second thoughts whose other roles I think are a bigger deal. First, George Takei in the Star Trek movies. While he was never the star (I think Nimoy and Shatner were always the real stars), in the latter films he was as integral to the films as the other characters. Add his ambiguous Asian-ness and the actor’s homosexuality, and I would have given him a few more words in this article than he got.

    Something might also be said about the X-Men films, which have featured several Asian actors, including Lady Deathstrike and Psylocke.

    Still, a pretty good piece.
