Talent agency Buchwald has signed actors Edward Zo and Wesley Wong, The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively learned.

Zo will appear in the upcoming indie heist comedy The Brits Are Coming, starring Uma Thurman, Stephen Fry and Sofia Vergara, and his previous credits include Switched at Birth and Speechless. He is best known for his aggressive social media presence; his YouTube channel has amassed more than 11.1 million views and his Instagram account has 500,000 followers. Zo’s 2015 vlog calling out the whitewashing in Netflix’s Death Note went viral during that casting controversy.

Wong is the son of Hong Kong power couple Melvin Wong and Angie Chiu. Born in Hong Kong, the actor received a bachelor’s degree in business administration from USC and a master’s in performing arts from Beijing Film Academy. After appearing in a handful of films across greater China, including 2017 Taiwanese romance Falling in Love, in which he played the male lead, Wong will make his American film debut in Universal’s Pacific Rim Uprising, a U.S.-China co-production. He also is set to star in Wanda’s Qi: Spacetime Warriors, due out in 2019.
