Photos from talk with James Hong

AAJA member Al Young interviewed legendary Hollywood actor James Hong at the 2011 Boston Asian American Film Festival feature “Spotlight” event Friday night (11/11/11) at MIT in Cambridge.

Hong, perhaps the most recognizable Asian American character in the world, talked about his remarkable acting career that has spanned nearly 60 years and includes more than 500 feature film and television roles. After the event, Hong, in Boston shooting the movie “R.I.P.D,” starring Jeff Bridges, Kevin Bacon, and Ryan Reynolds, chatted and signed autographs for the attendees. The next night, Hong and Young joined the BAAFF’s “wrap dinner” at the Jade Garden Restaurant in Boston’s Chinatown, which included the film festival’s committee members and filmmakers.
