The Dragonball Z movie, which was already an artsy, high-brow affair by virtue of its educated fan base, just bumped itself up a notch with the casting of former Real World San Diego cast member Jamie Chung.
Jamie, who has since been busy making web-mercials for Passion.com (after the jump), will play Chi Chi. I’m so stoked about this news that I put an extra spoiler on my car and drove around blasting my favorite techno record – the decals make it go faster!
Chi Chi is lifelong love interest of Dragonball hero Goku (Justin Chatwin), and has grown up with him. She has studied martial arts and has always suspected that Goku possesses talents that are unusual and extraordinary. After Goku embarks on his journey to redeem his grandfather’s death, Chi Chi meets up with Goku and his crew at a tournament of champions where their mutual attraction finally heats up during a training session.

The most important thing about playing a martial arts expert is being able to look Asian, and Jamie definitely has that going for her. She may just become the most famous former Real World castmember ever. Eat your heart out, Puck! Move over, stupid hair guy!
