    Well, I guess still being in school would'nt have helped.

    They are going to be hard pressed to find any asian people in that area. I went to Lehigh and it's dominated by whites and hispanics in that area. The students at Moravian and Lehigh are also mostly white. I am gonna hound my asian friends to go do this and berate them if they don't.

    My non-Asian white ass will lie, cheat, and steal its way onto the set. It's 20 minutes from my house!

    Kind of weird to film a Chinese city in the middle of PA... but I guess they want to do as much shooting while they can in PA.

    I live in PA. :)  Too bad I'm not Asian. :(  Not worth driving to the other end of the state for that.

    Why Bethlehem? It's not exactly an Asian type city, and it's not exactly a hotbed for Asians either. It's a shame since I live so close.

    On the other hand,,,,

    Hey, Reading PA is having it's WW2 weekend on June 6-8 (early June) and it has a Chinese Pagoda on Mt. Penn.

    Nahhhhh I couldn't be THAT lucky, I'm like right across the valley from the Pagoda, if they were filming there I'd be able to spy.

    Oh and I'm going out of town that weekend.

    I'll make some inquiries at city hall though if there has been any filming permits issues lately.
