    it has opened doors for her yay... just hope its not all for "stereotyped asian parts"... all this outcries for the unfair representation of African-Americans in Hollywood over the last year... it's Asians and all other miscellaneous ethnicities that are truly the ones losing out. Whenever has an Asian man been cast as a dramatic or romantic lead and not just a kungfu lead. Whenever has an Asian woman been cast as that doesn't involve her being something exotic or with a troubled past that needs rescuing and then wrapping her legs around a white guy.
