    Are Asians the only people that you are looking for? I'm Hispanic. Do you have a place for me? Or, is the company discriminating Hispanic people?

    • Martin

      No one is discriminating against you, MORON. They are looking for Business types, FBI & Military types, as far as I know those include ALL races since ALL races are involved in all of the aforementioned "types". They are also specifically looking for Asians for a specific scene that is set in HONG KONG, pretty sure the vast majority of people in Hong Kong are of Asian-descent NOT hispanic.

    I'm Asian but I'm not from Hong Kong, I'm from India. But I know there are a lot of Indians down in Hong Kong since I've been there before. Would I be able to be in the requirements? They did not specify

    Rehan Khan, I encourage you to audition regardless. Anyone can fit the "business" category and these are just general types, you may not necessarily fit into any one category but at the same time you may be perfect/what they're looking for. You won't get cast if you don't know go at all, go and give them your best, sometimes if you bring it, they'll make room for you!
