"Kim — who was awarded the festival’s 'Influential Asian American Artist' award — told that audience that he was currently in the midst of discussing what race the love interest of his 'Hawaii Five-O' character Detective Chin Ho Kelly should be — a conversation that was more difficult that he had initially thought.

"Ask anyone in the street to name five American black actors and they can do it; but ask them to name five British counterparts and they will be stuck. That is not because the talent does not exist, but because we just don’t get that exposure here."

"Badreya recalls when he first arrived in Hollywood in 1986. "I couldn't work. I was too handsome," he laughs. "So I put on some weight and grew a beard, and suddenly I was working every day and playing the angry Arab.""

Thx Jason. "He and other Asian Americans assailed the casting of Welsh actor Jonathan Pryce as the Eurasian engineer in the U.S. premiere of Miss Saigon. The role should have gone to an Asian or Asian American, they charged."
