In which I approve of Mandvi as Zhao...

... at least in this interview.

I think he has perfectly captured the mind of the character, ha ha!




DAN: Back to The Last Airbender. With Jackson Rathbone in the film, you are now officially one degree removed from the Twilight phenomenon — to say nothing of the fact that Airbender is opening just two days after Eclipse, putting the two films in competition for the July 4th weekend. So who wins in a smackdown between Commander Zhao and Edward Cullen?

AASIF: Edward Cullen is the main guy? Robert Pattinson?

DAN: He’s the main guy, yeah.

AASIF: Dude, come on. Zhao would just kill that guy. Pattinson would be like, “Oooh, I’m a vampire. I’m gonna come at you and suck your blood!” And Zhao would be like, “You’re now burned to a smithereen. I just threw fire at you and now you’re just a big mass of crumbly soot.” (laughs) There’s no contest! You can’t fight a firebender! I mean, the only way that Robert Pattinson could win is to flirt with him to the point where Zhao was like, “He’s so cute, I don’t wanna kill him. I kinda want to snuggle with him.”

DAN: (laughs) “For the good of the Fire Nation I must snuggle with this vampire.”

AASIF: Then that way, he’d survive. Because otherwise, Zhao would just burn him from the inside out. And then roast ‘im!

That's it. I know I'm gonna get dragged to go see Eclipse when it comes out by my Twihard friends (not that I mind any time to stare at Jamie Campbell Bower) - I've got a red t-shirt with nothing on it. I am getting my speedball paints and making myself a "TEAM ZHAO" shirt.

It requires me getting over my epic lazyness. My lazyness is pretty epic. However, I will totally post it if I actually make it. Hm, I do have this weekend free and need things to do to avoid cleaning...

Hahaha, I just bought the fire nation shirt at not topic today. I might have to wear it when my bff drags me to Eclipse as well. *she is also required to provide me beverage of an adult nature as I refuse to see those movies in an unaffected state*

I'd say something clever, but I'm too busy laughing at the icon.

I PUNCHED HER TO DEATH, JON.

Wow,Aasif has given me a reason to actually support the movie. I would love to see a Twilight movie go down in flames.

Ha! Okay, some of my interest in the movie has been renewed. Well done, Aasif. I fully support Zhao firebending Edward Cullen into a tiny pile of ashes. :D
