2 broke girls has found its "hot asian guy"

So... Remember that "hot Asian guy" that 2 Broke Girls was looking to cast for an upcoming episode? They've apparently found their man.

According to his website, Tim Chiou will guest star on the CBS sitcom as Edwin, the handsome web designer and potential love interest to Caroline, one of the titular broke girls (the one that's not Kat Dennings).

To refresh your memory, here's the casting call:
2 BROKE GIRLS, Episode #118, "And the Full Disclosure"
1/2 hour multi-camera
CBS / Bonanza Productions

[EDWIN] 22-32. A hot Asian guy, he is the web designer for the girls' cupcake site. Clearly, he and Caroline have a thing for each other, and after hours at the restaurant, things quickly heat up between the two... GUEST STAR/CO STAR
And here's the post from Tim's website:
Stay tuned viewers: Tim will be appearing in an episode of CBS' freshman comedy "2 Broke Girls" as EDWIN – handsome, Asian webmaster and potential love interest to the perky Caroline Channing (Beth Behrs). Edwin is the designer for the titular girls' website for their cupcake business, but "after hours… things quickly heat up."
The episode is scheduled to air on February 27.

As I've said before, bringing on a cool, handsome Asian guy seems like a fairly obvious attempt to counter-balance the ridiculous Han character that plagues the show. In that case, Tim, you've got your work cut out for you. Go forth and be the cool Asian!
