James Hong stars as dead Ryan Reynolds in R.I.P.D.

In the recently released trailer for the supernatural action-adventure R.I.P.D., Jeff Bridges and Ryan Reynolds star as two cops dispatched by the otherworldly Rest In Peace Department to protect and serve the living from the unruly undead. Think Men in Black, but swap out aliens with bad souls and evil spirits.

The joke is that the cops are dead, so they take on a different appearance when they dwell among the living. Ryan Reynolds happens to look like an old Chinese guy. And when you need an old Chinese guy for your movie, there should be one man at the top of your list: James Hong. The one and only. Take a look:

Looks silly as hell, but it's fun to see James Hong doing his thing. R.I.P.D. opens in theaters on July 19.
