EMMY NOMINATED MASI OKA: A HERO IN JAPAN TOO
We covered the Emmy nominations at 5 AM at the TV Academy with our film crew for Super Drama TV in Japan. They were particularly delighted when Japanese actor Masi Oka was nominated for Heroes. Later that day we were all having lunch at Marino’s in Larchmont Village, and who walked into the restaurant but THREE Heroes! Masi Oka, who plays Hiro, Jack Coleman, who plays Mr Bennet, and Zachary Quinto, who plays Sylar. It was nice to see that the three actors are good friends. The Japanese film crew waited patiently for Masi to finish eating because they hoped to get an on-camera comment from him about his nomination. Before Masi could even say “Thanks, I’m happy to be nominated” he insisted on calling his publicist for PERMISSION to speak – which he didn’t get. Masi was nice but why do actors let themselves be bossed around like that? His fans in Japan would have loved to see him.
