Kenneth Choi On The Last Man on Earth

The Will Forte series The Last Man on Earth is featuring a Gay Asian Character played by Kenneth Choi (Lewis). From Entertainment Weekly

For example, Lewis is gay. Tandy first acts bewildered when he finds out, which made me worry he was going to turn out to be some intolerant prick on top of everything else. But alas: He’s just really, really excited — and apparently keeping tally of what groups are represented in their ragtag gang. “I was pumped when you were just Asian. But a gay Asian?” he responds. “Hey, that checks off two boxes for us!”

By this time, they’ve decided on San Francisco as their final destination, and Tandy is thrilled they’re going there now that he knows Lewis’ sexual orientation — as he says, the city is “famously homosexual.” It makes a lot of sense a few moments later, when Tandy mentions to Carol he now has his “first gay friend.”

According to his imdb biography

Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago, Kenneth Choi dreamed of becoming an actor. Against his family’s wishes, Choi left college to pursue that dream. He literally ran away from home, cutting all ties with his family for 5 years to train and study before moving to Los Angeles. His dream became a reality as he landed guest appearances in 6 television series during his first year including “The West Wing” and “Roswell”.

Glad he took that chance as it definitely has paid off for him.
