His onscreen brothers, Freddy and Gary, will be played by Forest Wheeler and Ian Chen.
Constance Wu and Randall Park will play Eddie's parents. Based on Eddie Huang's memoir, it is set in the 1990s and revolves around a Chinese family that moves to suburban Orlando. It centers on hip-hop-loving Eddie Huang, raised by an immigrant father (Park) who is obsessed with all things American and an immigrant mother (Wu) who is often bewildered by white culture. Mrs. Huang is no-nonsense pragmatic woman who believes in tough love. Wu, repped by Talentworks and Generate, starred in the Amazon comedy pilot Browsers and will next be seen in Fox Digital's Parallels and feature Electric Slide. Park, repped by Talent Works and Principato Young, recurred as Danny Chung in HBO's Veep and will next be seen in Seth Rogen's The Interview.
The single-camera comedy pilot, written and executive produced by Nahnatchka Khan (Don't Trust the B in Apartment 23), is set in the 1990s and revolves around hip hop-obsessed 12-year-old Eddie Huang and his Chinese family, who move into the culture shock of suburban Orlando.
