2 Broke Girls Is Looking for a ‘Hot Asian Guy’

http://i.imgur.com/CabfZ.gif2 Broke Girls is looking for a "hot Asian guy" to play a web designer and love interest for Caroline on an upcoming episode, according to a casting notice picked up by the blog Angry Asian Man. It's almost as if the show is doing a little bit of penance for its regressive, racist caricatures! Probably not quite that, though, since Michael Patrick King doesn't seem to think there's anything wrong with blatant and unimaginative ethnic stereotyping. We're sure Han, the show's most egregiously unfunny character, will get "dimensionalized" any day now.

“hot Asian guy”

Are they allowed to have those on US Television?
I figured the only asian men on TV were nerdy asian men (who are always beta to white alpha nerd) or old asian mentor stereotypes.

lost is the exception to every hollywood casting stereotype, by virtue of having a billion characters.

Glee, in the only thing they are doing somewhat right. He's still pretty underdeveloped (like most Glee characters), he's dating the female Asian character simply because she's the Asian female character, and until half way through season two his only characterization was "hot Asian guy who could dance." He is really hot though.

Cho is too good for CBS though

Make him the star of an epic moneymaking trilogy instead

Why aren't you taking the necessary steps to have a John Cho Network up and running this year?

floetcist 19th-Jan-2012 10:36 am (UTC)

The only two black people in NY = Gabrielle Union and Aisha Tyler.

truth. I was going to say "haha" but then I realized, no seriously dude, truth, and it's just not funny.
tuluum 19th-Jan-2012 02:14 pm (UTC)
i couldn't with friends and its fake NYC. always thought it was a living single ripoff anyway.

it's the truth and it's not really something to laugh about sigh. Complete disregard of interracial relationships that do exist today, and what they actually look like :(
spider_orchid 19th-Jan-2012 03:34 pm (UTC)
That's really why I hate Friends. No way in HELL they were in NYC for all those years and there were NO black people.
rainbowtomatoe 19th-Jan-2012 09:05 am (UTC)
wait...we can post things from the a.v club now?
rainbowtomatoe 19th-Jan-2012 09:20 am (UTC)
OP, just an fyi...you might want to change the source so the a.v club doesn't bitch out ontd like last time...

cadaver_andante 19th-Jan-2012 06:09 pm (UTC)
Those who complain about ontd stealing their content obviously don't get what the point of community is
bad_situation 19th-Jan-2012 09:06 am (UTC)
I'm all for having more hot Asian guys on tv shows but this is not how you go about doing it.
rivadavia 19th-Jan-2012 09:08 am (UTC)
or they could get rid of the character based on racist stereotypes
lolita_applebum 19th-Jan-2012 09:14 am (UTC)
The creator's gay. there's no need to do that
hotelmirana 19th-Jan-2012 09:11 am (UTC)
This is like the casting version of "I have a black/asian/latino/~purple~ friend, so I'm not racist".
plugmebaby 19th-Jan-2012 06:36 pm (UTC)
haha exactly

by casting a hot asian guy in order to not be associated with racist stereotypes, theyre saying the stereotype is that asians are fug? wut?
jenosis Thanks internet!19th-Jan-2012 09:11 am (UTC)
I can't help but read "2 'Girls 1 Cup" whenever I see the title "2 Broke Girls."
until_you_leave 19th-Jan-2012 09:13 am (UTC)
"i'm gay so i'm allowed to be racist?" sound logic, bro.
