daniel dae kim cast in deathgames

More post-Lost work for actor Daniel Dae Kim. The guy we know and love as Jin has been cast in the action thriller Deathgames with Samuel L. Jackson and Kellan Lutz: "Lost" star Daniel Dae Kim cast in "Deathgames."

The story 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.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, DDK 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.

Shooting begins next month in Louisiana. I love Daniel, and I'm certainly glad we'll be seeing more of him... but to be honest, this movie does not sound very good. But I'll keep my fingers crossed and hope for the best. More here: 'Lost': What should the actors do next?
