Ke Huy Quan on Returning to Acting [Replay]
_Producer's note: When we prepped Jordan's new intro to this amazing interview from April of '22, I had jotted something down like, "who could have dreamed back then that he'd go on to win all the awards." Jordan rightly called this out, because (as she says here) she, and other critics, DID dream that. What I'd meant was: it seemed like one of those performances and films that you hope will be both lauded AND awarded, but you aren't holding your breath for the latter. How thrilling to be wrong sometimes._
Watch Ke Huy Quan accept his Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.
As a kid, he was Short Round in _Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom_ and Data in _The Goonies. _But as he got older, Ke Huy Quan began to feel that there wasn't really a place for him in front of the camera. After decades of telling himself he didn't miss acting, _Crazy Rich Asians _made a splash, and Ke began to think that maybe it was time to get back to acting. Ke opens up about all of that, and landing in the perfect threefold role of Waymond, Alpha Waymond, and CEO Waymond in _Everything Everywhere All At Once_.
And then, Jordan has one quick thing about_ Bend it Like Beckham_'s 20th anniversary.
