more movies should replace one of their actors with Daniel Dae Kim, regardless of the character's race.
There's been rumors but it is now confirmed. From the article:
"Kim has officially signed on to star in Hellboy: Rise of the Blood Queen. He announced the news today saying, “I’m excited to confirm that I’ve officially joined the cast of Hellboy. We start shooting today and I’ll be playing Ben Daimio, alongside our very talented cast, headed by David Harbour, and director, Neil Marshall.”
I'm almost certain I saw this guy in a restaurant in Bristol last night. A quick Google showed that there's a unit for Hellboy shooting for a week around here and this news puts the two things together.
Didn't he recently leave Hawaii Five-0 due to pay gaps between him and his white co stars? Good on him for landing a role in a big budget film. I remember him being great in Lost and it's nice to see this news.
It was very cool of Skrein to do what he did here. He didn't have to. Could have said fuck it, nobody is taking my paycheck. I hope Mr Kim sends him a muffin basket or something.
Nice. He should have been cast in the first place. He looks great for it.
