Revenge of the Green Dragons star Justin Chon has signed with APA, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned. Executive produced by Martin Scorsese and based on a true story, the crime drama premiered at Toronto last month and is toplined by Chon as a Chinese immigrant who gets caught up in New York City Chinatown’s gang wars.
Twilight fans will recognize Chon for portraying Eric Yorkie, one of Bella’s best (human) friends, a role he played in four of the franchise’s films. In last year’s 21 & Over (from Hangover creators Jon Lucas and Scott Moore), he starred opposite Miles Teller and Pitch Perfect’s Skylar Astin as Jeff Chang, the pre-med student whose birthday milestone inspires a night of blackout debauchery.
This summer, Chon shot the 1980s-set teen comedy Seoul Searching, an indie co-production among the U.S., Korea and China. He recently wrote and directed his first feature, the comedy Man-Up!, in which he stars opposite his Revenge co-star Kevin Wu.
Chon also is repped by East West Artists, JR Talent Group and McKuin Frankel.
