I like Asian dudes. I know what I like when it comes to dudes in general, perhaps because I'm more straight and narrow than I'd care to admit. Either that or it has something to do with the town I grew up in having some pervasive personalities in the Asian women department that rendered me incapable of understanding why they would have or could have been hot at some point. Actresses are easier, I suppose. Recently there have been some exceptional breakouts in movies from Asian actresses, so let's look at that this week, mmm'kay?
I suppose I have to admit that there have been occasional moments in my life where I've stumbled onto Disney programming. I've never sunk as low as to watch anything with Miley in it, but I have caught the very Valley Girl vibe that Brenda Song has rocked on a number of their shows & movies. She gets some big props for making the Facebook movie, THE SOCIAL NETWORK, more interesting, as well as some from my personal opinion stash for being a chick who has some substantial ink and not just a scrawny line of scribbles on her inner bicep like so many hipsters have been doing recently. She does take a few steps back for dating Miley's brother, however.
When I featured the SCOTT PILGRIM girls earlier this year, everyone bitched that I didn't include Ellen Wong as one of their hotties. In my defense, I wrote that column before I'd seen Wong play the deeply lovable character Knives. I understand now what the fuss was about. The question turns into whether or not this chick is still your chosen Sex Bob-omb when paired against other Asian babes.
I've used Jamie Chung before, 'tis true. But the babe is worth reusing. Hot in the vomitrocious DRAGONBALL EVOLUTION, Jamie is going to get a chance next year, under the tutelage of Zack Snyder, when she takes on the role of Amber in SUCKER PUNCH. Not to mention that she's the piece that the ever-cool Joseph Gordon-Levitt will be pursuing in the 2012 action flick PREMIUM RUSH. The man with the (alleged) yellow fever might know better than us all.
Who's your favorite breakout Asian Hottie?
