Wednesday Morning Man: Utkarsh Ambudkar!
Saw the wonderfully charming new movie Brittany Runs a Marathon a few nights ago and absolutely loved it.
One of the reasons is Utkarsh Ambudkar who is a sexy, funny delight in the film.
The 35 year old is known for his work on Pitch Perfect, The Mindy Project, White Famous, Brockmire, and Barbershop: The Next Cut.
This fall, he’ll star on Broadway in Lin Manuel Miranda’s Freestyle Love Supreme and has a role in the upcoming Disney film Mulan. But despite these high-profile performances, Ambudkar, who is South Asian, hasn’t found it easy to avoid casting cliches. In the video below, he explains how he tries.
