Michelle Krusiec

"What makes Alice Wu's debut so pleasurable is its easy rhythms, its sly juxtapositions, and its relaxed but funny performances. A generous straight man, Krusiec gives the film emotional heft...."---Slate

Sundance 2010
Tuesday, January 26, 2010

The premiere of Homewrecker at Sundance 2010 was great. I was
reunited with the cast and crew. Directing brothers Todd and Brad
Barnes were present and well received. They are a complete mixture of
talented, intelligent and nice. What a rarity. Really. (In fact I
was at the Queer Brunch and someone else mentioned the same exact
description of them.) So the great news is that you can download
Homewrecker on Youtube as part of Sundance's Select Five of Sundance
partnership with youtube. For a flat fee you can download the film
and watch it for the duration of the festival. So check it out. I
was able to party with the cast after the premiere at the Yarrow
theater and if you check out Wireimage, you'll get some nice pics of
the cast, crew and yours truly. I'd like to thank Bob Moon for
providing me with great jewelry for Sundance. Bob gave me the perfect
set of earrings and necklace. Sundance fashion is something that
stays casual but chic yet practical for winter so thanks Bob - your
set worked great.

Chase Community Giving on Facebook
Friday, January 15, 2010

Hi Everyone,

If you are on Facebook, there is a competition happening among non-profit organizations in a contest called CHASE COMMUNITY GIVING ON FACEBOOK.
Organizations all over the country are vying for prize money in hopes of acquiring monetary funds to help run their charities. I'm asking you to support CPAF (Center for the Pacific American Family). In the first round of the competition, they finished in the top 100 out of half a million eligible groups! Please continue to vote for them Jan. 15-22nd (Vote now!) so that they can continue to compete for greatly needed funds to service the Los Angeles County in areas of domestic violence, sexual abuse, assault within the API community. Any and all proceeds earned will be used by CPAF to reach beyond the API community to unify all 24-hour call centers in LA County. The badly needed funding will be used to create a sustainable joint hotline for 20 domestic violence shelters and 6 rape crisis centers. Additionally, CPAF will extend the hotline services to include online chat to make services more accessible to victims.

It will only take several seconds to vote but you may be helping to change a person's life.

To VOTE RIGHT NOW: Please go to

Center for the Pacific Asian Family

Watch the Videos on CPAF’s YouTube Channel:

From a heartfelt place, THANK YOU.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

A few quick updates....

CSI Miami episode airs on Jan. 18th on CBS.  Watch it as you will get to see one of the young stars of Twilight 3 play my...gulp...son.

I'll be doing a bit of traveling to New York City to see the Windup Bird Chronicle which has been getting some lovely coverage in the New York Times (January 3, 2010 Arts and Culture) and others http://twi-ny.com/blog/2010/01/05/under-the-radar/ If you're wondering who the person is in those photos -- uh, that's me!!!  I actually would like to cut my hair short like that...any thoughts?  The reason why I'm a big fan of this project is because I was involved with earlier workshops but due to scheduling wasn't able to perform in this one, so I'm a bit disappointed; however, I'm happy to support my dear friend and director Stephen Earnhart.  Next on the radar, I will be attending the premiere of Homewrecker at Sundance (TRAILER) and am looking to reunite with the Barnes' brothers who directed and produced this feature. I got a call from Dina Morishita of Dina and Welly Yang (check out that combo --Broadway singers and entertaining powerhouse) who said I need to do this film for a friend of hers because I JUST HAD TO. Well, she was right, several days later I was in Brooklyn shooting one really challenging climactic scene opposite one really cool actor Anslem Richardson (just after having taken a red-eye from LA to NYC). Todd and Brad -- you guys are super talented and I'm looking forward to seeing your careers unfold. I also have to add that it's such a sweet cherry on top when you get to work with nice, genuine people.  Later this year, March I believe, the season finale episode of Nip Tuck in which I get to play out my fantasies as a Japanese porn star come into fruition. Just kidding...not really...yes, I'm really playing a porn star. I'm moving up in the world Mom and Dad. "Look at me, NO HANDS!" Actually, I had a blast and even though I've thought about not mentioning it -- it's Nip/Tuck and if you guys have been following my career -- I was reunited with Ryan Murphy who is the genius creator of Nip/Tuck as well as...POPULAR in which I recurred as EXQUISITE WOO. Youtube that one, suckas! Exquisite Woo was THE singly best named character I have ever played. And merrily we stroll along from Japanese porn star to stepmother into the world of ABC Family with Secrets of an American Teenager which premieres their new season. I worked with Molly Ringwald and had to really take a moment to absorb that since I had watched Molly growing up as a kid and it was surreal to see her there with her freckles and offbeat voice. And of course, we mustn't forget my fellow people of Asia. In April comes a nice little premiere of a film called Zoom Hunting in which the trailer would make it seem like there's a lot of naked women in it....  Well, I'll leave you with that thought. For my Taiwanese fans, I'm hoping to attend the premiere and say hello to my favorite hairstylist while in Taipei and eat beef noodle soup and hot pot.

Love and delight for 2010
