Last week, Racebending.com was invited to attend the CAPE 2010 Holiday Soirée. The Coalition for Asian Pacifics in Entertainment was founded in 1991 and is the largest Asian American professional entertainment industry organization in Hollywood. CAPE is dedicated to advancing diversity and cross-cultural awareness by educating and promoting Asian Pacific Americans for key artistic and leadership roles in the entertainment industry.
At this year’s soirée, we were lucky enough to be able to cover the red carpet event. We spoke with many performers, including Heroes actor James Kyson Lee, Community actor Ken Jeong, Philip Wang and Wesley Chan of Wong Fu Productions, and Guild actors Sandeep Parikh and Amy Okuda.
Check out our interviews below! We asked actors, actresses, and directors about the future of APAs in media and the dream roles they want to pursue. And for fun, we checked out what they thought of the Racebending movement (if anything!).

Dream Roles and Projects
Have you heard of Racebending?
We were able to speak with many other amazing actors, actresses, and directors, including Adrian Zaw, Aaron Takahashi, Francois Chau, and Koji Steven Sakai. Unfortunately, technical difficulties prevented us from including everyone’s footage in the final cut.
We’re very grateful to CAPE Press Director Ken Choy for extending the invitation for us to cover the event.
