Yay! Shousan Suru to Hiro!

Sure calling the Japanese character Hiro (Masi Oka) on NBC's "Heroes" was a bit on the tongue-in-cheek side but kudos to the publicity team that has Masi on the all the talk shows, magazine covers and has become the breakout star of the show overshadowing his Caucasian co-stars. I applaud positive Asian characters, especially a Japanese character. On top of that, showing the American public a less-stereotypical depiction of the Japanese. Also big ups to James Kyson Lee who plays Hiro's buddy Ando Masahashi for also shining next to such an eccentric character.
