This week on “The Richard Crouse Show”: You know Randall Park as Eddie Huang’s father, American restaurateur Louis Huang, in “Fresh Off the Boat,” for which he was nominated for the Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Actor in a Comedy Series. He was Danny Chung on “Veep,” Kim Jong-un in the 2014 film “The Interview” and you’ve seen him on “The Office,” in “Trainwreck” plus the superhero movies “Ant-Man and the Wasp” and “Aquaman” among many others. He co-wrote and co-stars with Ali Wong in his latest Netflix movie “Always Be My Maybe.” In the romantic comedy they play childhood friends who have a falling out and don’t speak for 15 years. They reconnect as adults when Sasha runs into Marcus in San Francisco. Although the old sparks are still there, the couple live in different worlds.
“For actors of any colour, it’s a life of struggle,” he says. “Even making a living at this job is like hitting the lottery. Then, put on top of that being an actor of colour and being made aware of the limited kind of choices out there and the limited opportunities. I just knew it would be hard and, most likely, I wouldn’t be able to make a living just by acting. I would always have to have a part time job on top of that.”
