Good article and interview with John Cho down at AsianPopcorn:

Korean-American actor John Cho, 35, has become a household name in the United States, especially for playing parts that don’t have to be played by an Asian. Yet, there remains a challenging upward climb for Asian Americans in Hollywood, according to the star.

“First it’s difficult being an artist, and it’s difficult being an actor, period, and it’s difficult being an Asian American actor. When I started acting… the community was largely Chinese American or Japanese American, so even then I felt like a minority in the minority,” he told reporters during a private interview at a Busan hotel, Tuesday.
