yes, that's russell wong in an ikea commercial

What the...!? Your eyes do not deceive you. That's none other than Russell Wong as one-half of the Lees, the Asian American couple shopping for a new kitchen in this IKEA commercial. The watermelon guy from The Joy Luck Club. The leading man from the 1990s TV series Vanishing Son (remember that?). He's now kicking it in an IKEA ad. Take a look:

Yeah, that's definitely Russell Wong getting his kitchen on. And can I just say, he's still looking pretty darn good. Between this, and Tamlyn Tomita doing the hot mom thing on Glee, this has been a strange week for still-hot-dammit Asian American acting icons. (Does anyone recognize the woman in the commercial?)
