This week on the PodKast we have Writer/Actor/Director/All Around Asian Guy Justin Chon!
We talk about his journey up the acting ladder into writing and directing, his philosophy on goal setting, and what fuels him to keep pushing forward as an Asian-American man in Hollywood. Stay tuned for the all the laughs, bouts of nostalgia and the heroic journey from Extra to Actor.
