I had actually heard about this sometime ago but I waited until it was official and today it is. Action and martial arts superstar Mark Dacascos has officially joined the season 3 cast of the Bruce Lee inspired period martial arts action-drama Warrior.
Starring Andrew Koji (Snake-Eyes: GI Joe Origins, Bullet Train) the first two seasons ran on Cinemax before the pay service nixed its original programming. Fans were worried that the series would get canceled but HBOMAX swooped in to Dave the day and serve up at least one more season of the hit series.
Dacascos will be a series regular along with actress Chelsea Muirhead (Slo Pitch) and they join the regular cast which includes Koji as well as Oivia Cheng as Ah Toy, Jason Tobin as Young Jun, Dianne Doan as Mai Ling, Kieran Bew as Bill O’Hara, Dean Jagger as Dylan Leary, Tom Weston-Jones as Richard Henry Lee, Hoon Lee as Wang Chao, Joe Taslim as Li Yong, Langley Kirkwood as Walter Buckley, Perry Yung as Father Jun, Chen Tang as Hong, Miranda Raison as Nellie Davenport and Dustin Nguyen as Zing.
According to Deadline, Dacascos will portray Kong Pak, the former leader of a newly absorbed, Long Zii-affiliated tong and Li Yong’s old friend and mentor. Muirhead will play Yan Mi, the unassuming but shrewd daughter of a local print shop maker based in Chinatown.
Warrior Season 3 is currently in production in South Africa. You can watch the first two seasons on HBOMAX now.
