Lucy Liu didn’t hesitate to take Kung Fu Panda role

Lucy Liu

Lucy Liu jumped at the chance to star in Chinese-themed movie Kung Fu Panda – because both of her parents are from Taiwan.

The actress was born and raised in New York, but has always been proud of her Asian heritage – and was eager to explore it by lending her vocal talents to the animated film.

She says, “It didn’t take me long at all to decide I wanted to do this.”

And the former Ally McBeal star insists she is pleased Hollywood is gradually increasing the diversity of roles available to ethnic actors.

She adds: “I think there are more filmmakers out there who are doing more colour blind casting. I’m hoping it will continue to expand. But it is a long process.”

Cashmere Mafia being canned – and Lucy Liu joining Dirty Sexy Money?


This is the best news I’ve heard all day!

Lucy Liu will be back on ABC next season no matter what.

Liu is in negotiations to join the cast of the network’s freshman drama “Dirty Sexy Money,” which has been renewed for a second season. She most recently starred in another ABC freshman drama, “Cashmere Mafia.”

The casting on “Sexy,” where she would be a regular, is formally in second position to “Mafia,” whose chances for renewal are not very good following a low-rated midseason run.

On the ABC Studios-produced show — a primetime soap revolving around the wealthy Darling clan and their spoiled offspring — Liu would join Peter Krause, Donald Sutherland, William Baldwin, Natalie Zea, Glenn Fitzgerald, Blair Underwood, Seth Gabel, Zoe McLellan and Jill Clayburgh. Samaire Armstrong, who was a regular during the first season, won’t continue on the show full time.

Liu would play an attorney. It’s not clear whether her character will be associated with Krause’s Nick George, the Darlings’ family lawyer.

Liu has been a fixture on ABC in the past year. In addition to “Mafia,” she also did an arc on the network’s “Ugly Betty.”

Lucy Liu is just weird

Lucy Liu

Lucy Liu has a strange plan for her body after she dies – she wants to be frozen so she can wake-up in a wardrobe.

The Charlie’s Angels star wants to be cryogenically frozen when she passes away, and hopes to defrost herself in the closet of legendary U.S. socialite Nan Kempner. The 39-year-old beauty is so taken with the late fashion guru’s style, she would love to get the chance to try on some of her couture gowns – even if it means being reborn for the honor.

She says, “When I die, I wish to be cryogenically frozen in Nan Kempner’s closet. And when I wake up I can choose from her incredible collection. That would be wonderful.”
