Hard NOC Life


Sep 13, 2019

One year after Crazy Rich Asians was released to the world, Keith and Dominic look back at the film's legacy on this week's Hard NOC Life.

Before that, though, they recap the latest casting news around the latest Mortal Kombat adaptation -- which features a majority Asian cast of actors not associated with Crazy Rich Asians. Then they go into the post-Crazy Rich careers of the film's alumni and break down the salary disparity between the film's co-screenwriters on the proposed sequels. Then they end once again on a brief history of G.I. Joe and the casting of Henry Golding as Snake Eyes before diving into what an Asian Snake Eyes means and Larry Hama's history with the character.

What’s #NerdPoppin this week (47:30): Dominic is looking forward to HBO's Watchmen series, while Keith is reading Trick Mirror, the recently published collection of essays by The New Yorker's Jia Tolentino.
