  • Wat an idiot. Keanu just got dark hair & barely any Asian in him. He's probably 10% or less Asian so he doesn't even count.

    • TOP 10 ASIAN AMERICAN ACTORS/ACTRESSES
      By Mitch Maiers
      AMCULT 214.002
    • Introduction
      This is the a list of the top 10 Asian American actors/actresses in the United States
      Even though there are not many Asian American actors/actresses in American movies, there are still a few that have been very successful
      This presentation will highlight those Asian Americans who have shined in Hollywood
    • Methods
      The list was compiled by researching over 200 Asian American actors/actresses listed on Wikipedia
      Each actor was researched to find out which movies they had been in
      Then each movie was found to see the total gross sales of the movie
      Finally each actor received a total sum of gross sales by adding up the total gross sales for each movie they acted in and the top ten were ranked
      If an actor or actress never played a major role in any of their movies they were not counted on the list
      Actors, such as Bruce Lee were not included because there is not data on the sales of their movies since their movies were made before movies reported their sales

      All of the gross sales information for all of the actors and exactly what the gross of each movie was can be found at http://www.the-numbers.com/people/
      The information on the actors biographies can be found by typing in the actor’s name in Wikipedia. We found where each actor was born on Wikipedia.
    • Conclusion
      There are hundreds of Asian American actors and actresses, this study analyzed over 200 of them
      The ten people listed above are just a short list and are definitely not the only successful Asian American actors and actresses
      It was hard to make the top ten, I challenge you to research other successful Asian American actors and actresses
