Steven Yeun Explains Why We Really Need More Asians on TV
OKJA’s Steven Yeun joined Armie Hammer and Jermaine Fowler, his castmates for the upcoming film SORRY TO BOTHER YOU, to participate in Wired’s Autocomplete series where the three reacted to the most-searched questions about them on Google.
And what the exercise made clear (with the most searched questions for Yeun including ones like ″Is Steven Yeun in the Jake from State Farm commercial?” and “Was Steven Yeun in Raiders of the Lost Ark?”) is that the internet thinks he plays every Asian character on TV.
“This is why we need more Asian people on the fuckin’ screen, man,” Yeun explains. “Everybody thinks I play all the Asian people on television. They think I play all of them.”
