will yun lee signs on to two films

Speaking of Asian American actors... According to The Hollywood Reporter, Will Yun Lee has signed to star in the indie films Oka! Amerikee and Hollywood Untitled: Will Yun Lee signs for two films.

Oka! Amerikee is based on the true story of Louis Sarno, an American ethno-musicologist who lived among the Bayaka Pygmies in Central Africa for 25 years recording their music. Lee will play Yi, a Chinese businessman, alongside Kris Marshall and Isaach de Bankole.

Hollywood Untitled, written and directed by Mun Chee Yong, will star Lee as a young man struggling with the aftereffects of waking up from a coma caused by a car accident. I really liked Mun Chee Yong's previous short film, 9:30, so I'm looking forward to seeing his feature directorial debut.
