Anziz Ansari has little of the superhuman confidence of his "Parks and Recreation" character Tom Haverford; most of his nights out, he says in his new comedy special, end up in the dorm rooms of Indian guys who invite him over to play videogames.
At first glance, you wouldn't think actors Jesse Eisenberg and Aziz Ansari would have much, if anything, to do with surfing, snowboarding, skateboarding, or any other sport involving a board. Truth is, they don't.
The thing about Aziz Ansari's character, Chet, is that being Indian is not even a minor part of Chet's character. In fact, the role of Chet could've been played by an actor of any race -- and that's what I find exciting.
