What’s Audrey Man actor Justin Chon up to these days? Making more movies, running a business, traveling the world, or playing Wii drinking games? Check all of the above. Audrey recently had a chance to sit down with the busy Twilight star in Los Angeles between his jet-setting schedule.
Fresh from the Pusan International Film Festival and on his way to Paris (!) for a signing, Justin, I imagined, must be a tired man. But in fact, he was ever so energetic during our interview.
First, he’s got The Twilight Saga: New Moon premiering November 20, and he just wrapped up filming the third installment, Eclipse. After three years of playing Eric Yorkie, however, this guy’s ready to take on more, including putting his business degree from the University of Southern California to good use. That means running The Attic with his two friends. Based in Buena Park, Calif., The Attic is an urban boutique selling contemporary footwear and apparel.
“It’s some booboo-ass shiet,” Chon says of the merchandise with a playful (and heart-melting) smile. “Nah, I’m just kidding, I just like using that word.”
What a joker. I guess it doesn’t matter how he describes it; he looks good in the 3sixteen V-neck and Nudies Jeans (both from the store) that he’s sportin’.
Justin’s also been busy helping out his fellow USC buddy Jarrett Conaway, a film major. Recently, Justin starred in Turbo, Conaway’s thesis. The short film with a tight budget that doesn’t look like it (laser lights and cool special effects!) stars Justin as a virtual gladiator, training to win a 4-D game competition.
Geez, is he one of those boys who can’t live without video games (ugh)?
“I actually don’t own a single game console,” Chon admits. “The closest thing to playing video games is when I visited Korea last week and went to a Wii-bahng. It’s like a small karaoke room, but you can play Wii games instead of singing. They even serve alcohol, so my friends and I competed for drinks.”
Sigh. Looks like Chon is living the life.
We can’t wait to see him in action on the big screen. Look for The Twilight Saga: New Moon in theatres Nov. 20.
