Mickey Rooney as Mr. Ashton Kutcher as a Bollywood producer, Raj, in a commercial , his skin darkened, a brown mustache affixed to his face, speaking in a cheap singsong voice, swaying his body, which is clad in a bright blue silk sherwani, back and forth to imitate the Indian head waggle. I have never quite seen myself on-screen. Having been raised on a mediocre diet of American television and mainstream Hollywood movies, I can count on one hand the actors of Asian descent who made an impression on me growing up. Their performances have stayed with me, like a novel you may never read again but pack with you every time you move.
Top 40 Asian Actors/Actresses Under 40 to Watch for in Hollywood
Asian Actors -catalog- list
In the over interviews I have done, and as editor of AOF, I have learned a lot, not just about the industry, the people, the politics, but also the talent. I have also kept an eye on TV shows and movies with Asian American talent and as a director myself looked at actors that I think are the whole package and have the potential to climb their way to the top. It is from this vantage point that I decided to develop my watch list. The list is not about who is highest ranked on IMDB, who is most well known and who is the busiest, but those who I see making significant moves because of what they are doing. Hence, the list contains big names like Daniel Henney a number of Hollywood projects in the works and Steven Yeun not because of The Walking Dead , but because he is launching his own film initiative to promote roles for Asian actors who I both see has having more growth beyond the sucess they have already, as well as some who people may not know about, but who I know have the talent AND the drive to move up significantly this year. As I watch and see things change, I plan to change my list…monthly. Second , I could add another people to this list very easily, but top 40 under 40 sounds good.
