'Wolverine' Sequel Casts Two Villains
Actors Will Yun Lee, recently seen on "Hawaii Five-O," and "Grimm's" Brian Tee are new additions to Marvel Comics film.
The Wolverine, Fox’s sequel to X-Men Origins: Wolverine, is casting its villains.
Will Yun Lee, recently seen on the CBS drama Hawaii Five-O, and Brian Tee, who has appeared recently on shows such as Grimm and Burn Notice, are joining Hugh Jackman in the Japan-set movie based on the Marvel Comics hero.
James Mangold is directing the movie, which is scheduled to begin production next month in Australia.
The story borrows heavily from the Chris Claremont-Frank Miller Wolverine comic book miniseries that premiered in the 1980s.
Tee is playing Noburo Mori, a corrupt minister of justice who is about to marry the daughter of a yakuza crime lord (the daughter is Wolverine’s love interest).
Lee will play Harada, more commonly known as The Silver Samurai. He possesses an electrified suit of samurai armor and is the illegitimate son of the crime lord.
Yun Lee, repped by APA and Industry Entertainment, recently wrapped voicing action the video game Sleeping Dogs and will be seen in the Total Recall remake. He also plays a villain in MGM’s Red Dawn remake.
Tee was part of the ensemble cast of the Starz drama Crash and has a string of TV appearances. He is repped by DiSante Frank & Co.
