Indian Actors Snatching "White" Roles

All hail the red, white and brown.

Aziz Ansari in EVERYTHING

He said it himself, the last four roles he's played were : Randy, Chet, Eugene and Tom. Maybe its the very ghetto-licious lifestyle he leads or his inability to keep calm ever. We Indians are typically a peaceful people.

Sunkrish Bala as Guy Meredith Sleeps with (Grey's Anatomy)

Sure, its a little obscure, but it was the funniest thing in the world to watch this guy come into the hospital and say his name was Steve Murphy. Still makes me giggle.

Kal Penn when he's on TV

When Kal Penn is in movies, his "Desi" roots are impossible to hide. However, there's something about the smalls screens that bring out his whiteness. His roles on How I Met Your Mother, House, and the recently crappy series We Are Men, he's played the pastiest of characters.

Avan Jogia as Beck Oliver (Victorious)

I don't see what the fuss is, but tweens everywhere are in love with this guy. Maybe its the goatee. But he's got the whole brown-disguised-as-white, brooding thing down.
