- Constance Wu (Fresh Off the Boat) talked about how when she booked FOTB, she wasn’t aware of how significant her role was even though she hear how it has been 20 years since a show with a predominantly Asian-American cast aired on tv. She was more focused on paying her rent but has since changed her perspective and focus her self-interest to Asian American interest. She compares getting roles for Asian-American actors to training for the Olympics where the actor only gets a leading role one or twice in a lifetime.
- Daniel Dae Kim (Hawaii Five-O/The King and I) talks about how it is hard to make a living as an actor and it puts actors of color in a very difficult position. He started his own production company, 3AD because he was tired of waiting for Hollywood to create roles for Asian-Americans.
- BD Wong (Gotham) said that it is stereotypical to think Asian Americans do not speak up when they are getting to people’s face about it.
- The article lists many movies that have whitewash Asian characters in movies such as Aloha, Death Note, The Martian, Absolute Fabulous, Doctor Strange, Ghost in the Shell and more.

The article points out how Emma Stone and the director of Doctor Strange have acknowledged their racist moves.
- The article mention Chris Rock’s gross Asian joke at the Oscar and the letter written to the academy.

- Asian-Americans make up 5.4% of the US population but only more than half of film, tv, and streaming properties feature zero named or speaking Asian characters. In 2014, 1.4% of lead characters are Asian.
- The article talks about how the audiences and internet has help people be aware of this issue. They include the #StaringJohnCho’s meme going around. The creator of the hashtag talk about how it started out as a joke but realize that having an Asian-American actor starring in a lead role wasn’t so crazy after all. Aziz Ansari points out how Hollywood is being shamed into diversity and moving at a snail’s pace. He points out that the movie posters only feature white people.

For those who don't know, a cinestory is a comic that adapts a show or movie using screencaps instead of original art (for example, this is the cinestory for Zootopia). However it's been hinted that if the Gargoyles cinestory does well enough Disney might bring back the original comic book series that series creator Greg Weisman was doing.
The Gargoyles cinestory will be released in July, though you can preorder it on Amazon now.
Meghan Trainor thanks the Sun's Dan Wootton for hooking her up with the tasty yet unhealthy KFC spread.
Meghan tweeted @ KFC's official UK twitter account signaling that it was a promotional tweet meant to advertise the fast food brand to her 2 million followers.
The singer is in the UK doing some promotion for her latest album and not a moment too soon. Trainor's Thank You had a massive drop in its second week from its already lukewarm opening, dropping from #5 down to #22 on the UK's album chart! Seems like music consumers across the globe are saying No to Meghan's latest musical effort.
so kfc, popeye's, or church's chicken, ontd?

Canadian singer-songwriter Ruth B visited NYC's Strand Bookstore to discuss some of her favorite books. Her Peter Pan-inspired song "Lost Boy" originally started out as a 6-second Vine of her singing a line she came up with, but after her Vine blew up, she decided to turn the line she wrote into a full song. Talking about the books she read while growing up, Ruth says that the Harry Potter series is her all-time favorite, and J.K. Rowling is the one person she wishes she could meet. Her music video for "Lost Boy" came out earlier this month and has already racked up 4 million views. Her song is currently #30 on the Hot 100.

Normani: Scary/Posh Spice
Lauren: Scary/Posh Spice
Dinah: Sporty Spice
Camila: Baby Spice
"Every member continues to give their own distinctive flavor into the tangy cocktail as they did before; with Camila's cuteness resonant in the sugary hooks, Lauren's iciness, Dinah's majestical falsetto, Ally's maturity, and Normani's sensuality giving off a different, refreshing flavor into every song put out."

known Johnny Depp for years and through several relationships. He's the sweetest, kindest, gentlest man that I've ever known. Just saying.— Paul Bettany (@Paul_Bettany) May 28, 2016
Paul Bettany decided to step into the ring on twitter and defend friend Johnny Depp, despite the photographic evidence and restraining order granted to Amber Heard. Needless to say, the reaction has been... strong.
@Kylodameron well that might be true, but I probably have MORE insight than say... Uh... You... Or all the other piranhas on the internet.— Paul Bettany (@Paul_Bettany) May 28, 2016

Just about every tv show has those characters that were supposed to be one-offs or only last a couple of episodes as reoccurring characters. Here is a look at some characters that managed to make it from part-time to full-time and how they changed their respective shows.
Played By: Emily Bett Rickards
-Felicity was supposed to just be an IT girl that helped Oliver/The Hood on 1 or 2 missions. Emily Bett Rickards impressed the studio and audience so much that they kept her around the entire season and promoted her to full time at the beginning of their 2nd season.
-Bringing in Felicity full time changed the series for the better or the worse depending on who you ask. She went from a part time character to a character that rivaled the main character not only in screen time but also in popularity and would end up to take over the main role of love interest.
Spike 'Buffy The Vampire Slayer'
Played By: James Marsters
-Spike aka William the Bloody appeared in BTVS Season 2 as the big bad who wanted to kill The Slayer. Spike was supposed to meet his demise in the middle of the season in order to allow his girlfriend, Drusilla take up the mantle of big bad alongside Angelus. Due to James Marsters badass portrayal of the character and reception with the audience, Spike survived the season and became a regular in Season 4.
-Spike would go from big bad to full time Scooby member and would eventually become Buffys new love interest for the shows last 2 seasons. Not even death could keep the character away as he jumped ship after BTVS ended and became a series regular on the sister show, Angel for its final season.
Santana Lopez & Brittany S. Pierce 'Glee'
Played By: Naya Rivera and Heather Morris
- Santana Lopez and Brittany S. Pierce (also known as Brittana) started out as simple lackeys and backup dancers to Quinn Fabray. Half way through the first season they became fan favorites breaking out from under Quinn's shadow. By season 2 both were promoted to series regulars.
-Due to their popularity both as individuals and together, they would go on to get several solo/team up performances along with becoming a power couple on the show, culminating in their wedding during the shows final season.
Blaine Warbler 'Glee'
Played By: Darren Criss
- Blaine Anderson was introduced in Glee's 2nd season as a mentor and possible love interest to Kurt Hummel. He was quickly promoted to a series regular at the beginning of the shows 3rd season.
-Blaine was a stand out character to teenage girls around the world very quickly with his rendition of Katy Perrys 'Teenage Dream', a song that would go on to be one of the shows best selling singles. He quickly overshadowed the shows original muse, Kurt Hummel. The two would go on to become the shows most popular couple.
Sophia Petrillo 'Golden Girls'
Played By: Estelle Getty
-Sophia went from a guest character in the pilot of Golden Girls to a series regular by the second episode.
-Sophia was the wise cracking mother that was never afraid to call it like she saw it which helped make her a popular character. She would go on to out last all the shows characters by appearing in various spin offs such as The Golden Palace and Empty Nest.
Harmony Kendall 'Angel'
Played By: Mercedes McNab
-Harmony is a character that truly stood the test of time. She started out on Buffy The Vampire Slayer as a reoccurring character throughout the shows 7 seasons before becoming a series regular on the spin off, Angel, in it's 5th and final season.
-Harmony went from being Cordelia Chase's lackey to Spikes girlfriend to Angels assistant. She was a dumb blonde both in her human life as well as her vampire life but was always happy go lucky which endeared her to the audience. She didn't make any big splashes though.
Played By: David Boreanaz
- Buffys steamy vampire beau, Angel was not originally meant to last past S1 but his chemistry with SMG and general charisma made the crew/fans fall in love with him. He was officially upped to a regular in S2.
-Angel would go on to be such a popular character that he went on to get his own successful spin off that lasted for 5 seasons. He went from playing love interest to Buffy to playing the main big bad in season 2 to breaking Buffys heart in S3.

Amber Heard's claims of serial domestic abuse at the hands of Johnny Depp are horrifying. Here they are in her words https://t.co/hBf8z8T5vY— Marlow Stern (@MarlowNYC) May 28, 2016
“I endured excessive emotional, verbal and physical abuse from Johnny, which has included angry, hostile, humiliating and threatening assaults to me whenever I questioned his authority or disagreed with him,” Heard stated in her request filed May 27 in Los Angeles Superior Court.
“He has a short fuse,” she said. “He is often paranoid and his temper is exceptionally scary for me as it has proven many times to be physically dangerous and/or life-threatening to me. Johnny relationship [sic] with reality oscillates, depending on his interaction with alcohol and drugs. As Johnny’s paranoia, delusions and aggression increased throughout our relationship so has my awareness of his continued substance abuse. Because of this, I am extremely afraid of Johnny and for my safety.”
“Many times over the past few years,” Pennington (a neighbor) added in her statement, “Amber has confided and complained to me about Johnny’s abusing her, both physically and verbally.”
