John Cho and Debra Messing at the “Searching” Los Angeles Screening

Posted on August 23, 2018

Between Crazy Rich Asians, the adorable To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before on Netflix, Sandra Oh’s award-nominated turn on Killing Eve Henry Golding’s new film with Blake Lively and Anna Kendrick, A Simple Favor, and now this film, there’s definitely an Asian Excellence moment happening in American pop culture right now – or an “Asian August,” if you prefer. Here’s to hoping it becomes more than just a moment (signs are good in that respect), but we’re happy to see John Cho’s a part of it. The man deserves his turn at leading man/hero roles, given all the time he’s put in on some seriously successful films and franchises.

Now let’s get really shallow and talk about Debra’s choices.

John looks fine, although it all feels a bit slap dash. He’s capable of some world-class suave action when he wants to be. This feels like a missed opportunity. A tie, a shave, a different pair of shoes and a lowering of that pants hem by an inch, please.

As for Deb, we give her credit for trying something a little funky and unexpected. The boots are cute. It’s just that the dress doesn’t do much for them and isn’t very photogenic. A good idea that needed a better frock to complete it.
