Daniel Dae Kim

Two weeks ago, British actor, Ed Skrein, made headlines after voluntarily leaving the upcoming Hellboy reboot due to public outcry regarding his casting. Skrein had been cast to play the Asian character, Major Ben Daimio, which caused controversy as many regarded the casting choice as yet another case of Hollywood ‘whitewashing’ of Asian characters in foreign adaptations.

Now, reports have come in that Asian-American actor, Daniel Dae Kim, is in talks to replace Ed Skrein in the role of Daimio.

Kim is most notable for his roles in the TV series Lost and Hawaii Five-0.
