Jesus. It’s going to be hard to wait three more days. But I must…
ABC has officially picked up the new sitcom "Selfie," a modernized version of "My Fair Lady."
The social-media centric comedy will see Karen Gillan as Eliza Dooley, who’s more concerned with getting likes than actually being liked. After suffering a very public and humiliating breakup, she becomes the subject of a viral video and suddenly has more social media followers than she ever imagined, but for all the wrong reasons. She enlists the help of a marketing expert at her company to help repair her tarnished image. John Cho plays the successful and arrogant Henry, who decides to re-market Eliza as a challenge. [x]
An Asian male in a romantic lead…about fucking time! This is one TV show I might actually consider watching.
AN ENDLESS LIST OF FLAWLESS → JOHN CHO"Yes, I do feel a responsibility, and always have, and it’s been an odd burden for me. Even when I started and no one gave a shit, I was trying to avoid doing roles and it’s no accident that I’ve never done something with a chop suey accent. It’s no accident that I’ve never played those parts. I strongly believe there are a lot of Asian American actors who think that that’s the price to pay before you get to wherever you’re going. And I take real issue with that. Because you have to maintain integrity from the start, and on a personal level, you have to not do something that’s going to make you sick to your stomach."
