21

This weekend there's a movie coming out based on Bringing Down the House, the book about the MIT blackjack team. The protagonist is an Asian cat named Kevin. Young Asian actors... well, they could go with John Cho of Harold and Kumar fame, or maybe Parry Shen from Better Luck Tomorrow, or...

Jim Sturgess. What the shit, Hollywood? This is your Asian MIT undergrad? Did you run out of Asian actors after you filled all of the comic relief, nerd, and exotic-and-cute-but-shy chick roles?

Was David Carradine not available?

"There was this guy, he looked Asian... and he was speaking another language, I'm pretty sure it was... Asian."

Yeah. That's some bullshit, yo.

Still, it's nice to see math all sexed up on the big screen.

Bringing Down the House is an absolutely fantastic book.

however, i have a feeling this movie is going to suck and that bothers me because Kevin Spacey is one of my favorite actors.

i noticed that when i saw the preview. point against movie 1.

then i thought about the preview. i cannot tell if it will be a good movie or not, but i'm leaning towards not.
