As of this writing, I fell asleep the night prior – before seeing this week’s Lost (something that will be rectified with extreme prejudice upon my return home). So I don’t know what happened last night with Jin. But I do know what’s happening with Daniel Dae Kim: he’s just been cast in Deathgames, alongside Sam Jackson and Kellan Lutz. The film centers on a young man (Lutz) who is kidnapped by a
sadistic mastermind (Jackson) and forced into a modern gladiator arena,
where men fight to the death for the entertainment of the online
masses. Kim is playing a fellow prisoner, an artist who happens
to be a master of kendo (samurai-style sword fighting), a skill that
comes in handy when he competes for his life and his wife’s.
I’ve liked Kim, going back to his days on Angel as sleazy Wolrfram and Hart lawyer, Gavin Park. He’s recently had a small part in the upcoming The Adjustment Bureau and headed right back to Hawaii for a role in the Hawaii Five-O pilot.
