Maulik Pancholy of 30 Rock, one of the cutest actors on TV (or so the ladies tell me), talks about his cultural heritage in this funny video. “When I was an undergrad at Northwestern, there was definitely a part of my cultural identity that I shied away from, that I was very distanced from – and that was the Indian part of me,” he says.
Pancholy also talks about Hollywood’s portrayal of diversity. “There’s a lot more people of color in the industry now,” he says. “There’s certainly a lot more South Asians. I see that at every audition I’m at. I’m like, ‘Go home! Stop stealing my parts!’”
