Happy birthday to Dean Cain, who will turn 44 on Saturday!
I remember the first time I laid eyes on this warm-skinned, super-duper man on a classic episode of 90210 when he was the gullible, white-toothed, sexy-eyed Wisconsin boy that bought Brenda Walsh’s bad French act one summer in Paris. I couldn’t believe a guy so dumb and wholesome could also be wicked hot and intriguing, but oh, how he was.
Time has treated this hapa well, which makes me very happy. Why oh why did I ever stop stalking this guy?
Name: Ronald Lee Clark
Hails from: LA (via Athens, TX/Choctaw, OK/Denver, CO/Seoul, KOR)
Why He’s A Babe: Ronald and the rest of Shorty’s crew are little people that make a big impact. Shorty’s Rescue of Long Beach, CA deals almost exclusively with protecting the highly misunderstood pit bull, a dog whose loyal and nurturing qualities are too-often overshadowed by the dangerous behavior of the badly mistreated. It’s important but tough and taxing work, and most people don’t have the nards to stay with it. Clark has been a longtime animal advocate, but is a relative rookie as an activist for pits—we like watching him learn and rise to the challenge.
Plus, we dig Clark’s smile lines, warm smile, and perfect tan. But should we investigate that film he did with porn superstars Jenna and Janine (eep!)? Maybe we’ll leave that to the past and stick to watching him save doggies!

Happy bithday to Aaron Yoo, whose shaggy locks we coveted in 21 and Disturbia! You turned 31 yesterday, but sure don’t look a day over 24.
And since I’m making assessments: you also seem like the kind of dude that has a rockin’ record collection, can roll a sweet spliff, always wears a perfectly worn-in tee, and can coax their Hardass Asian Mom to do anything–simply by annoying the shit out of her, then almost suffocating her with an awkward bear hug. Dude, we totally want to party with you. Let us know when and we’ll cruise!
If Kal Penn leaves the White House Office Of Public Liaison to be in the next Harold and Kumar…

Happy birthday to actor Ken Leung, who turns 40 today!
40? Seriously? Somebody card this guy! And may his mysterious gaze and signature smirk continue to woo us from our flat panel boob tubes, for years to come. We’ll never get enough!
Last night, as I watched the Danica McKellar guest spot on The Big Bang Theory, I was reminded of one thing: Kunal Nayyar (who plays Rajesh on the show) is such a babe!!!
Name: Kunal Nayyar
Hails from: Los Angeles
Why He’s A Babe: Well…
Is it wrong that I kinda don’t mind if Kal Penn ever returns to acting?
Cuz he looks DAMN GOOD in that suit, baby. DAMN GOOD.
Your locks are luscious, that skin is smooth, and those arms are buff. In our opinion, you don’t look a day over 22.
So, dear, we wish you nothing but smiles, hot babes, and stiff drinks in the New Year. If you want to share those stiff drinks with two fun ladies, please feel free to call on us.
I am rather obsessed with Christina Hendricks, who plays Mad Men‘s glorious, whip-smart, feline secretary Joan Holloway. Her porcelain skin, bodacious hips, magnificent coif, wardrobe of endless solids, and elegant neck are the stuff of goddesses, or at least of wonderful seductresses and forces of nature. If you watch Mad Men (it should basically be required viewing), you know that it would be impossible to imagine the spitfire embodied by any other woman–because Joan needs to be played be a woman, and Hendricks is most certainly a woman.
Hendricks is an antidote to a plague of Hollywood’s dull-eyed, static, overdressed, bony girl actresses (like the entire cast of the new 90210 that I refuse to investigate)–who parade down Robertson Blvd. as meaningfully as a film premiere red carpet and become US Weekly staples well before they amass multiple credits on their IMDB.
She’s wonderful! And now she’s engaged…
Congratulasians go out to the happy couple!
Jen and I both have our reasons for living, loving, writing DISGRASIAN. I can’t speak for hers, but me, I’ve got reasons aplenty. One in particular has been lurking deep inside of me for over a year or however long we’ve been at this, a dark secret I never thought I’d make public. It’s my tornado of shame, my source of personal disappointment, the bright yellow “D” written across my forehead.
Are you ready for this?
Please don’t hold it against me.
I’m Vietnamese-American, and I don’t speak Vietnamese.
I’ve tried to learn, a number of times. I’ve hoped to pick it up by listening to my parents or visiting Ho Chi Minh City for a week (yes, I shrugged my shoulders as I wrote that). But after spending the first 8 years of my life in corn country where I didn’t hear a syllable that wasn’t English (my parents had pretty much eliminated it from the house vernacular), my ears and tongue and brain became inept in that language Department. I just didn’t come together.
So there you go. I’m kinda DISGRASIAN. And I don’t want to end up on this frickin’ site, ever, even though I’m know that the situation is a bit of a disgrace. To the race. So I pick up my trusty laptop and write alongside Jen, day in, day out, blog or bust. Just to stay off of our site’s seemingly endless saffron pages. Ever with burden and shame.
I would give anything to learn my native tongue to perfection, and make my DISGRASIAN status a thing of the past. So far, I haven’t really figured out how. I pity me.
Oh, and reading today that Charles Jang, the Korean-American leading man of the new film Take Out, picked up fluent Mandarin as a second language for the role in only one year… made me feel just lovely. SALT IN THE WOUND, MUCH?
Thank you so very kindly, all of you kind and generous tipsters, for sending that lovely news my way. Why don’t you call my mom and remind her that her daughter is DISGRASIAN, too? Screw off!
Thanks, Aidel and Jasmine! Now screw off!
Hails from: Mainland China
Why He’s a Babe: Because even when playing a mama’s boy, as he did in Zhang Yimou’s Curse of the Golden Flower, Liu still steams up the screen. And with those sad eyes, pouty lips, and that deep aura of melancholy, he reminds us of a young Tony Leung.
Liu Ye stars next with Meryl Streep and Aidan Quinn in Dark Matter, opening this Friday. The film, directed by Shi-Zheng Chen, is based on a 1991 shooting at the University of Iowa, where a Chinese physics Ph.D. student killed five people after getting passed up for a department prize. Sure to remind us all of Virginia Tech and make many people uncomfortable, we hope you’ll go see it anyway:

You’ve come a long way, baby.
