Glee Scoop: Mike Chang's Parents Revealed!

Mike Chang’s parental unit has been located.

Glee is making good on its promise to introduce the disapproving folks who produced the vocally-challenged New Directions member in Season 3, and has tapped actress Tamlyn Tomita and actor Keong Sim to fill the aforementioned roles. EW.com first reported the news.

Sim most recently appeared on the big screen in M.Night Shyamalan‘s The Last Airbender, while Tomita — best known for the classic The Joy Luck Club — played a coroner on NBC’s short-lived Law & Order: LA.

The pair is set to appear in the Oct. 4 episode. Glee’s new season launches Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 8/7c on Fox.

Comments are monitored, so don’t go off topic, don’t frakkin’ curse and don’t bore us with how much your coworker’s sister-in-law makes per hour. Talk smart about TV!

    Yay! More Asians on TV!

  2. xav says:

    Wow. His parents are HOT. I heartily approve.

  3. Karen says:

    Good looking parents… Is it just me, or do Asians look way younger than they’re supposed to?

  4. Gabriela says:

    Hey Dim Sun mom!!

  5. Soso says:

    They should have take Emily Kuroda aka Mrs Kim on Gilmore Girls !

    • Lauren says:

      Mrs Kim would be his grandmother…… and she would be an AWESOME grandmother. Couldn’t you just see her going off on Tina for the way she dresses? Priceless.

  6. ErixN says:

    These are good choices, but I was hoping they would have brought on BD Wong.

  7. Carrie says:

    Glad to see Tamlyn on something new. She’ll always be Kim on Eureka to me. And she had an early role on Quantum Leap actually playing a character named Tamlyn. She was a psychic who fell in love with Sam and she was supposed to be murdered.

  8. fiona says:

    this is one good looking family if I have anything to say. I actually though his mom would be more of the Super Asian Immigrant older look to her but I approve either way =)

  9. Samantha says:

    Man that is a hot family!!!

  10. My says:

    Nice choices, but I was hoping we’d see Rachel’s dads first.

  11. Wendy says:

    I’ve loved Tamlyn Tomita ever since ‘The Karate Kid Part II’, and the lesser know, but hugely powerful, ‘Come See the Paradise’ with Dennis Quaid. She’s an amazing actress, and it wonderful to see her get a role in such a high profile show!

  12. chase says:

    Wow that’s is one hot lookin family. Can’t wait to see more Mike!

  13. jamie says:

    are we ever going to meet Tina’s 2 dads? so curious..

  14. Lily says:

    Mike Chang is Chinese. However, his mother is played by a Japanese woman and his father is played by Korean man. Clearly, all Asians look alike. Feh!

  15. Chris says:

    Why does everyone have to do that? Whenever a minority character is played by someone who isn’t exactly the same nationality that the character is…people get all crazy. They picked the best actor for the job. Let’s state a fact…if you didn’t know what nationality Tamlyn was…would you even question it?

  16. Lily says:

    Oh dear, Mike’s father looks so great. Will Tina secretly have a crush on him ?

  17. Shaddy says:

    Hi Just to point out, Tina doesn’t have 2 dad’s that Rachel, though it would be great to see Rachel and Tina’s parents, from the comments I remember Tina’s parents are strict.

    Go parents! I’m still hoping to see Anne Hathaway as Kurt’s aunt, the rumours have just made us all excited about the possibility.

    daaaang Mike’s dad is HOT.
