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 series, currently 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!
Favorite album of all time:
Back in Black by AC/DC. I can listen to it over and over and still be pumped!
GIF that accurately describes how you feel today:
Han Lee line you had the most fun saying:
It's in an upcoming episode in Season 4 where I'm bleeding... Stay tuned!
If you could have dinner with three people (dead or alive) who would they be?
My grandfather, Bruce Lee, and Jack Lemmon.
Joke — tell us one, please:
What kind of nose do you find at the zoo? Rhiiiiiiinos.
Kids show you would still watch now (maybe):
So Weird on the Disney Channel. Was bummed when it ended!
Last concert you went to:
Bruno Mars at the Hollywood Bowl. The best.
Meme you're currently digging:
Nineties music video you still love:
"Scream" by Michael and Janet Jackson. I remember how cool that video was when it came out, and how all their black clothes were sick. The intensity was off the charts, and they were in space!
One regret you have in life:
I never went to Chinese school when I was young and was really resistant to learning Chinese. I wish I knew Chinese now.
Phrase that needs to stop existing:
"Maybe you should be more like (so and so)." Comparisons are awful. Focus on your own lives, people!
Question(s) you would ask a historic figure:
Did you know [the inventor] Nikola Tesla had a photographic memory? I'd ask him to find a way to recreate his photographic abilities in my brain today. I'm sure with his ingenuity and today's science, he could do it.
Revelations you have had about your 2 Broke Girls cast members:
Garrett [Morris] doesn't drink in real life. I don't think he likes the taste.
Send us a selfie and tell us the story behind it:
Not really a selfie, but this was last Halloween. I loved this makeup. I thought it was really badass.
TV show (old or new) you would love to cameo on:
Oh, I love The 100 on The CW right now. Very bright, talented cast, and a great story! I'd love to work with them. I also miss my extended family on The Middle. Such wonderful people.
Up-and-coming band you hope blows up soon:
Lissie. Look her up. Such a rocker.
Vine video you get a kick out of:
All videos by King Bach. He's insanely talented and funny. But that backflip though...
Williamsburg Diner changes you would make:
Add a claw game machine with an iPhone as a prize... No customer could resist (insert evil laughter).
Instead of asking for your favorite "X-word," we will ask for your shameless plug here:
Watch 2 Broke Girls on CBS and Steven Universe on Cartoon Network!
YouTube video you are currently showing all your friends:
My friends probably don't like me for the number of cat videos I show them.
If you didn't know Zimbio was an entertainment site, what would you think "a Zimbio" was?
A disease where people suffer from being too bendy.
