You may know Korean American actor Tim Jo as the sweet, innocent alien teenager Reggie Jackson on the ABC sitcom The Neighbors, but what happens when you switch out his character’s signature polo shirts and khakis… and dress him up like a Korean pop star?
In the meantime, some Audrey Behind-the-Scenes Extras: Tim Jo’s self-described “incredible” story of how he got to Los Angeles.
We’re pretty outspoken about our love for Baby Lily, played by twin baby actresses Jaden and Ella Hiller on the hit sitcom, Modern Family.
So while we are going to miss them now that EW has revealed the show has cast the 4-year-old daughter of Korean American comedienne and longtime Audrey favorite, Amy Anderson, we are super excited by this casting news!
Aubrey Anderson-Emmons will now take over for the role of Lily, the adopted Vietnamese daughter of Mitchell (Jesse Tyler Ferguson) and Cameron (Eric Stonestreet).
Showrunner Steve Levitan lauded the child actress, calling her a “natural.”
“She really enjoys the process,” Levitan said, “And she looks just like Jaden and Ella! When we had her do a scene, she sounded natural — not like a cutesy kid actor.”
Sounds like Aubrey’s going to have an amazing time on Modern Family!
Check out KoreAm Journal’s 2009 feature story on Amy and other single KA ladies.
What do you think about the new Lily?
Ok, not really.
But we know someone who is!
As I’ve mentioned before, Wong Fu’s impromptu short at the ISA concert last weekend had me in pieces. And judging from the nonstop laughter in the house from the beginning of the short to the very end, it was obvious the video was a grand favorite of the evening. Well, today, the video is finally unleashed on Youtube!
After watching it for two four more times, we noticed a guest appearance by a very special friend of ours… KoreAm Journal!
We won’t spoil the clip for you by telling you where it is but can you spot KoreAm‘s guest spot?
Ted’s Best (Man) Friend just shows that Wong Fu Productions is getting better and better with age. Sharp, witty dialogue, a spot-on Office-mockumentary style, and chemistry so good, they can give the Friends cast a run for their money, it’s no wonder they draw fans of all ages (as this writer has learned first-hand).
Wong Fu also happens to be on the cover and inside the pages of KoreAm Journal this month! You can purchase your own copy here:
