The Media Action Network for Asian Americans is decrying John Cleese's role in Charlie's Angels 2 as "hurtful," though I suspect their reasons differ from mine.
As Alex's biological father, Cleese is simply preposterous in the role. [Lucy] Liu is clearly a full-blooded Asian and couldn't convincingly be half-white.
One hopes the genetic omniscients at MANAA will soon provide Hollywood with a handy list of "full-blooded" Asian actors and the more convincingly half-white; if nothing else than to see them try to classify Tommy Chong.
