Nah, not necessarily. Maurissa Tancharoen is Asian and one of the showrunners here, so I imagine she might have had a bit to do with casting Ming-Na. For anyone familiar with Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog Tancharoen actually had a funny song on its musical commentary track called "Nobody's Asian in the Movies" lamenting that very fact.
