You need to tell us if it's the same guy - Comment #135 added by jeej at Bad breakups? Currently in a significantly better relationship with her best friend; not out of revenge but because of legitimate feelings. But since the musical comedy's premiere in October, it has also established itself as a breakthrough television show for Asian Americans, thanks to the casting of Filipino-American actor Vincent Rodriguez III as Bloom's character's object of desire.
As Josh Chan, Rodriguez plays the heartthrob whom Harvard-educated Rebecca Bunch, played by Bloom, leaves her high paying New York legal job to follow to California — West Covina to be exact, one of Southern California's prominent Filipino enclaves. Born in San Francisco and raised in Daly City, a Filipino enclave located in Northern California, Rodriguez told NBC News he immediately recognized the character of Josh because it was similar to so many of the people he grew up and went to school with.
Vincent, I'm also a Filipino American born in San Francisco, and when I think of Filipino images on TV, there are some, but not many. After a performance, I met the man who would later be my acting coach who helped me get into my acting conservatory. I think there was confusion from our audiences' end since it was something we didn't put in the writing in the first few episodes. In my mind, as an observer of these things for many years, I don't recall ever seeing a joke about dinuguan [Filipino pork blood stew] made on mainstream TV. It makes me feel pretty great that I get to be a part of this breakthrough in television history. To make changes in the business, it starts at the top — in this case, Rachel Bloom, the executive producer.
There are a lot of characteristics of the Filipino culture and Rachel did a great job acknowledging some of them in the show.


Aline [Brosh McKenna] and Rachel are great executive producers and fully support the authenticity of our characters and their backgrounds. Actress Rachel Bloom, winner of Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series - Musical or Comedy (L) and screenwriter Aline Brosh McKenna, pose in the press room during the 73rd Annual Golden Globe Awards held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel on January 10, 2016 in Beverly Hills, California. Does this represent a generational change in sitcom development, where younger executives are sensitive and will get these stories out?
There is no doubt that diversity is a problem in show business and that this fight has been going on for a long time. It's the same on her part because she dated said best guy friend and was hurt in a similar fashion by the two. What did you think of the absence of Filipinos in TV and movies when you were considering career choices?
It was apparent to me that there were many others who were in support of me becoming an actor and making a name for myself. The fact that it has now been presented to the general public on network television, is huge.
Why did she happen to address the "unconditional love of Filipinos" as a narrative source?
Especially with the help of [Filipino American] Rene Gube, who not only plays Father Brah [in the show], but is also one of our many very talented writers who actually wrote the Thanksgiving episode that presented the network television debut of a Filipino family.
I sometimes catch myself just starring at her in awe of all she does and how professional, funny, and charismatic she is. Times are changing and it's catching on that the roles on TV and film need to reflect its diverse viewers.


Now that we have the basic story out about Filipinos, can we just have more Filipinos play roles that could go to any other ethnicity? I think we will start seeing more nontraditional casting and more ethnically diverse storylines.
My dad is full Filipino, but my mom looks a little mixed and her mom's name is Estelita Coquico. Do you help out with authenticity like how Filipinos like group photos, go to mass, play basketball with their priests?
Rene helps make sure our Filipino references are on point, even down to the appearance of dinuguan when we filmed it in our Thanksgiving episode. Ken," I see television more willing to cast Asians in non-traditional roles, and write more roles specifically for actors of Asian descent. Are many producers giving you as an actor a chance for that sort of role because of "Crazy Ex-Girlfriend"? Josh appreciates Rebecca for all the great things she is, as I appreciate and love Rachel for all she is.
I can't speak for the stage, but for TV and film, I think it's a problem that we are so much closer to solving now, given the current hit shows on television.
A lot of the Filipino stereotypes that were joked about by me and my friends rang very true with my family.
