USA's 'Falling Water' Adds 'Hawaii Five-0' Actor (Exclusive)
USA Network's Falling Water is adding a Hawaii Five-0 and Strike Back actor to its ranks.
Will Yun Lee has boarded the drama pilot as a series regular, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Falling Water was co-written and co-created by late Homeland Emmy winner Henry Bromell and his Brotherhood and Rubicon cohort Blake Masters. The duo co-wrote the script before Bromell's unexpected death in 2013 following a heart attack. The prolific and beloved writer-producer was 65.
From Universal Cable Productions and executive produced by The Walking Dead's Gale Anne Hurd and her studio-based Valhalla banner, Falling Water is described as a mind-bending thriller, intersecting reality and unconscious thoughts. The drama, which is being exec produced and directed by Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later), tells the story of three unrelated people who slowly realize that they are dreaming separate parts of a single common dream. Each is on a quest for something that can only be found in their subconscious — a missing girlfriend, a son, a way to communicate with a catatonic mother. However, the more they begin to use the dream world as a tool to advance their hidden agendas, they realize that their visions are trying to tell them something and that their very real lives are at stake.
Lee, who recurs on Hawaii as Sang Min and on the final season of Strike Back as Kwon, will portray Taka, an intuitive NYPD detective whose leap of faith insights put him on the trail of an obscure dream-obsessed cult.
He joins a cast that includes American Horror Story alum Lizzie Brochere and David Ajala.
Lee's feature credits include Spy, Wolverine as well as San Andreas. He's repped by APA and Zero Gravity Management.
