Needing more Naveen

Naveen Andrews is getting lots of attention for playing Sayid on Lost. I like seeing a show in which two Asian male actors are getting leading romantic roles and being played more or less positively (yes, I'm one of those people who likes Daniel Dae Kim's Jin). But, beyond the fact that DDK and Naveen Andrews are battling it out on the Sexy-o-meter, it's nice to see that they both also have good heads on their shoulders about Hollywood. DDK has repeatedly addressed the APIA community about his character on Lost, and check out Andrews' latest interview with the Honolulu Advertiser. In it, Andrews talks about the sexism and racism of Hollywood, as well as the difficulties of being an actor of colour. We definitely need more actors like Naveen.
