to asia and back again

The New York Times has a story on Maggie Q, who seems poised as Hollywood's up-and-coming Asian It-girl of the moment: Stuck in Asia, Dreaming of Hollywood. She's got a slate of high-profile releases this year, including the upcoming Die Hard sequel and the dreadful-looking comedy Balls of Fury. The article mentions that she's part of a trend of Asian American actors who head over to Asia for a crack at stardom—sort of a roundabout way of hopefully making it back to Hollywood. She seems to be one of the few who have been able to make the jump back.
