CBS Hit Sitcom '2 Broke Girls' star Matthew Moy
'Adorable Han Lee'
Interview with Kim Cyr KCM-LIVE.COM
Matthew Moy is often the butt of the jokes on the CBS sitcom '2 BrokeGirls' (Mondays 8/7c), but he's quick to prove he's got hilarious jokes of his very own. On the series, currently in its six season, Moy delivers witty, obscene comebacks as Han Lee, the delightful and charming 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 a few questions with me showing us all why we love his geniality and quick wit.
During my interview with Matthew, we had some technical issues so you will only hear the first 3 minutes. Here are some of the questions you missed.
Kim: Caroline Channing or Max Black: Who would you rather be stuck on a deserted island with?
Matthew: Oh no, 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.
Kim: What is the funniest experience you have had with a fan?
Matthew: I meet a lot of fans at the grocery store, especially Costco. I like a good deal folks!
Kim: What is your favourite memory on the show so far?
Matthew: Oh boy, well let me see. I know, the best memory so far when Kat Dennings grabs my butt.
Kim: If you have music playing in your trailer, what would it be?
Matthew: Back in Black by AC/DC. I can listen to it over and over and still be pumped up! I love it!
Kim: Do you have stage fright before you go on?
Matthew: This isn't 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! Not good to be around...ha!
Kim: Give me your best gangster impression as Han Lee!
One answer I wish I could play back for you as it just isn't the same unless you hear it. Maybe we will get to ask Matthew in another interview because it was hilarious!
Kim: The creator of this sitcom did such an amazing job with the characters in this show...how is it working with the cast?
Matthew: Many layers of success for the show. 1) Our cast is amazing and we have GREAT chemistry. Chemistry is not to be taken lightly. It can make or break a team. 2) FANTASTIC writers and the jokes they write. 3) Michael Patrick King. He KNOWS success. He already lived it when he did SEX AND THE CITY. Every day I watch his work ethic, and it is like no other. He sets the excellence bar very high. I’ve learned a lot!
Kim: If you had the chance to share the stage or have a role in a film with anyone dead or alive, who would that be?
Matthew: Bruce Lee or Jack Lemmon
Kim: Where can we and the fans keep up with you online to stay up-to-date on all your projects?
Matthew: On Instagram and Twitter @TheMoyWonder
