"Yellow" Actor on KUCI

Irvine -- Subversity, a KUCI public affairs program, continues its focus on independent films with an interview Tuesday evening (June 9) with Jason Tobin, who plays "Yo-Yo" in Chris Chan Lee's "Yellow", currently playing across from UCI's main campus at Edwards University. Interviewing Tobin on Subversity will be Daniel C. Tsang, host of the interview program, which airs Tuesdays from 5-6 p.m. on KUCI, 88.9 FM in Orange County.

Tobin, a Eurasian from Hong Kong, plays a hilarious character with yellow hair in "Yellow," which follows eight Asian American teens during an eventful high school graduation night.

Tobin has appeared in "Beverly Hills Ninja", "The Wayans Bros." and in "Nash Bridges" where he played a rookie cop. He recently finished the new game "Road Rash 3D" for Sony Playstation where he proves that motorcycles and acting do mix! Jason just completed a short for the James Redford Institute to promote driver safety for teenagers.

This summer Tobin will be using all his years of martial arts training in the upcoming "Kung Fu Kitchen"; then he will be taking on the role of "Mark Cho" in the indie "Until Yesterday Is Done". Also Tobin can be seen in commercials and print ads for "Surge", "Levi's 501", and "Puma" not only acting but running, jumping, and rolling down a hill in a barrel.

In recent weeks, Subversity has interviewed Yellow's director, Chris Chan Lee, and another actor in the film, John Cho, who also appeared in "Shopping for Fangs."
