Matthew Moy may often be the butt of the joke on the CBS sitcom 2 Broke Girls (Mondays 8/7c), but he's quick to prove he's got mad jokes of his own. On the seriescurrently in its fourth season, Moy delivers witty, raunchy comebacks as Han Lee, the heavily accented and somewhat controversial Korean owner of the Williamsburg Diner and boss of Max Black (Kat Dennings) and Caroline Channing (Beth Behrs). Fans may also recognize the actor from stints on Scrubs, The Middle, the 2011 film No Strings Attached, and as a voice on the Cartoon Network's animated series Steven Universe.  

Moy took time away from running his dive diner to answer our 26 burning questions and hit us with a few jokes of his own (i.e. "What kind of nose do you find at the zoo? Rhiiiiiiinos!")

Advice you have for anybody trying to make it in Hollywood:
Work hard. Be respectful. Be disciplined. Don't let Hollywood or ideas of success change you. Keep on going! Keep on trying. Real character is in the trying.

Bravest thing you have ever done:
My kneecap once popped out in a high school play. I screamed and grabbed my leg, then popped my kneecap back in. We kept going and finished the play. We used to joke and call it varsity theatre.

Caroline Channing or Max Black: Who would you rather be stuck on a deserted island with?
Neither! Neither of them would probably get any work done to be rescued, especially with me ordering them around. Well, maybe I'd choose Max. I feel like she'd have a lighter at least.

Dance move that never gets old:
The I'm-pretending-to-dance-in-my-chair-so-I-don't-have-to dance. I'm great at that.

Embarrassing story you are ready to share with the world:
Not a story, but a fact: I don't eat a few hours before I get onstage. I get too bloated if I eat. I guess it's nerves. I have a sensitive stomach, folks!
