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.
