Love Finds Ali Wong And Randall Park In 'Always Be My Maybe'

Ali Wong stars in the new romantic comedy

Ali Wong stars in the new romantic comedy"Always Be My Maybe" which will be released on Netflix Friday. Wong also co-wrote the film in which her character has several love interests including Keanu Reeves character and Daniel Dae Kim's charac

Because later, someone will show you what you missed, and you will say, "I should have listened to that NPR critic".

In addition to "Always Be My Maybe", Buteau hosts "Late Night Whenever With Michelle Buteau", and will be seen in Netflix's coming series "Tales From the City" and BET's "First Wives Club". It's also noteworthy that Park is 45 and Wong is 37, making them significantly older than rom-com leads often are.

"There are so many things", she says about the script.

The film was written and produced by Wong, Park - longtime friends - and Michael Golamco.

"Always Be My Maybe" follows the story of celebrity chef Sasha Tran (Wong) as she goes back to San Francisco from Los Angeles to open a new restaurant.

But Always Be My Maybe is a better movie in terms of its writing and performances. But he has a new and unusual girlfriend (a very amusing Vivian Bang), and she's dating a fancypants rich guy played by the always welcome Daniel Dae Kim.

This is one. Straight-up, down-the-middle, glorious romantic comedy for people who really and truly love and miss that kind of movie - and the fact that both leads are Asian American isn't the only way in which it's fresh faced.

"When we started this project, and even when we brought this to Netflix, it was before 'Crazy Rich Asians, '" said Randall with a smile.

The Brit was knocked down four times before his seventh-round stoppage at the hands of the Mexican at Madison Square Gardens. Andy Ruiz Jr . just pulled off one of the greatest upsets in boxing history with his 7th round TKO of Anthony Joshua .

"I have letters that we sent to each other building it up, like, 'This is gonna be so special, and it's gonna be great, '" he says. "It was clumsy. I remember afterward thinking, It was supposed to be so much more than that".

Still, the two, and even Daniel Dae Kim, are happy that numerous characters in the movie are Asian American and played by Asian American.

The filmproves that Asian American actors can be not only the leading stars in a romantic comedy, but also the secondary characters - who, besides Reeves, all happen to be people of color, none of whom are type-casted. This is the closest film I've ever been a part of that's been anything akin to my own experience.

And if his point isn't clear enough, he added: "If there's any misconception I'd like to change, it's that Asians are not always foreigners". She is lost in the world of fancy food, dubbing her cuisine "transdenominational" when discussing its potential mass appeal. He calls her out on her catchphrase - "elevating Asian food" -deeming it an effortto Westernize Asian dishes rather than celebrate them in their authentic form. When Bulletin Entertainment asked whose idea was it to cast the "John Wick" star, Ali, Randall, and Natch merely said that to get him, "that was the dream, right?"

Natch said: "I don't think anybody knew what his schedule was or what the likelihood was".

Without saying too much about his role, let's say that Reeves here is riffing on what you might call the Keanu Reeves Cultural Ideal - this notion that he's a fighter and a poet and a paragon of decency who probably meditates in the shower.

"And then we got word back that he wanted to meet on it".

Park turns Marcus into more than just a slacker-with-a-heart-of-gold, and instead portrays him as a wounded soul who represses his best ideas out of a fear that bad things will happen and he'll end up failing.
