Korea Times:

The Interview” actor Randall Park says he’s glad the film was finally released and he’s ready to move on to his next role — a suburban dad in an ABC sitcom.

Park, who played North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un in the movie at the center of the Sony hacking incident, was asked at a Television Critics Association meeting Wednesday if he feared any personal fallout.

I was never worried for my safety or getting hacked during that process,” he said.

What was unsettling, a smiling Park added, was to watch a TV newscast “and they’re talking about Kim Jong-un and showing my face.”

He said he’s excited about his role in ABC’s “Fresh Off the Boat,” adapted from the memoir by food personality Eddie Huang.

The comedy, about an immigrant Taiwanese family adjusting to life in Florida, debuts Feb. 10.
