A letter from Tim Chiou guest starring on 2 Broke Girls

After the whole 2 Broke Girls alleged racism debacle, the producers of the show had a casting call for a "Hot Asian Guy" to star as a web designer where he and Caroline will have a thing for each other. Things are definitely going to heat up. Looks like Alpha Asian Gentleman Tim Chiou will be staring as Edwin cajoling Caroline even after hours at work. NICE.

I thought this was blog worthy so I decided to give him a shout out and ask him about the selection process and what this means for Asian-Americans. 

Hi MaSir,

Thanks for the shout out! Its been good to get a lot of buzz from the casting. I wish I could say something interesting about the selection process, but it was pretty straightforward. Just like any other audition I've had. To me, it was just your average day of work.

I know there has been some controversy surrounding 2 Broke Girls, and a lot has been made of what the existence of my role means, but at this time I am going to abstain from commenting on it. I think time will shed some more light as to what it all really means. But I will say that I went in there to do a job, and I just tried my best to do that job well. And I had a great time doing it. There are some very talented people working on that show, and I feel blessed to able to have the experience of working with them.

Again, thanks for the email. Hopefully, you'll watch the episode when it airs, and that people will ask for more Edwin! 


Hey, I'm all for it as long as he's not doing kung-fu, being nerdy or fobby. Keep Edwin on the show and make him a total player or a sweetheart who ends up getting engaged to Caroline. Just don't make him a stereotypical Asian male!
