Ga Ga: Scene Stealers Aaron Yoo and Jessalyn Wanlim Take the Lead in The Good Guy at TriBeCa Film Festival

The screening of the romantic dramedy The Good Guy at the TriBeCa Film Festival naturally had Blindie all giddy with Gilmore Girls star Alexis Bledel and Friday Night Lights‘ Scott Porter in lead roles.

But we left the theater impressed by Aaron Yoo and Jessalyn Wanlim, who, as best friends of both lead characters, made us crack up.

Wanlim, who played Bledel’s bestie and coworker Jordan, deadpanned during a hilarious waxing scene on why their other girlfriend didn’t tag along for a team waxing: “Because she didn’t want to get her vagina ripped off!”

While Yoo, who’s a familiar face from Disturbia with Shia LaBeouf and Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist, goes against type with slick-back douchey Wall Street boy hair and tailored suits.

As Steve-O, the up for anything financial party boy, he takes back tequila shots, unsuccessfully hits on blondes (“Since it looks like I’m not f–king her…Good luck!”) and calling his darts team “Blasian” because he’s teamed with a black Brit.

We’re looking forward to seeing more from these two actors in the future.

White Rapper Asher Roth Slams Black Rappers For Not Giving Back To Africa

asher_roth

Rapper Asher Roth may have debuted on the music scene with the slacker anthem ” I Love College” heralding “getting wasted,” and smoking weed but he’s now taking aim at black rappers for not sharing their millions with the “Motherland.”

Roth attempts to address the great divide between the have and the have-nots in his latest single “Sour Patch Kids” and his remix of Lil Wayne’s “A Milli,” “A Millie Remix.”

“When I dropped that … (I thought) ‘You guys are always going off about how much money you have. Do you realize what’s going on in this world right now?’ All these black rappers — African rappers — talking about how much money they have. ‘Do you realize what’s going on in Africa right now?'” Roth says.

“It’s just like, ‘You guys are disgusting. Talking about billions and billions of dollars you have. And spending it frivolously, when you know, the Motherland is suffering beyond belief right now.'”

Roth recently apologized for a tweet he posted on his Twitter exclaiming he was “hanging out with nappy headed hoes.” The 23-year-old blond rapper claims he was “making fun of don imus,”referring to the radio disc jockey who was fired after making the same derogatory comments.
