Nichole Bloom is a Model Minority

Nichole Bloom

Production was recently completed on Model Minority, an indie film written, directed, and produced by long-time ER actress Lily Mariye.

The film’s leading role is played by Nichole Bloom, whom readers of this blog will recognize as Nichole O’Connor, the cute girl with the goofy laugh from that State Farm commercial with Bob Barker. This dramatic starring role is quite a departure from her character in that ad.

Model Minority, a film based on true events (names and places have been changed), tells the story of Kayla Tanaka, a 16-year-old girl who is half-Japanese, half-white, and all-American. She and her sister, 14-year-old Amberlyn, live with their parents Ken (Japanese-American) and Angie (white) in a low-income section of Los Angeles. Kayla aspires to be an artist, but she puts her future in doubt when she becomes involved with a drug dealer.

The film, which also stars Courtney Mun, Chris Tashima, and Jessica Tuck, is scheduled for release in July 2012.

Dia Frampton on The Voice

Dia Frampton on The Voice

Dia Frampton, lead singer of the band Meg & Dia, will be appearing as a contestant on tonight’s episode of The Voice, airing at 9pm (8pm Central) on NBC.

The show is a singing competition that features four musician coaches: Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton. Currently the show is in the “blind audition” phase: Contestants perform while the coaches have their backs turned. If a coach likes what they hear, they push a button and their chair turns around so they can see the contestant. The contestant then gets to choose their coach from amongst the ones that turned around, and they’ll work with that coach for the rest of the competition.

If you haven’t seen the show yet, you should definitely check it out. Only one episode has aired as of yet, but it looks pretty sweet so far, and the presence of Dia Frampton on the show can only make it more awesome.

NBC released a preview of Dia’s blind audition that you can view on NBC.com. Also, check out the links I’ve posted below to learn more about Dia, her sister Meg, and their band Meg & Dia.
