The Taiwanese American, UC Berkeley grad from Houston talks a bit on how the character of Christopher "C-Dub" Wang evolved from a character in a series of online shorts to the protagonist of a feature length comedy that seems to be picking up a lot of buzz. Could "Ping Pong Playa" be the next great indie hit? Like "Blair Witch Project" without the nausea, "Juno" without the teen pregnancy, or "Napoleon Dynamite" with a point?
Good luck to Tsai, Yu, and the rest of the "Playa" team. Here's hoping that great ticket sales this weekend lead to a wider release.
