Another day, another little 'R.I.P.D' casting! The new Robert Schwentke helmed adaption of the popular comic book series of 'ghost' detectives won't hit screens until next June but we've already been teased almost every week with a brand new cast member. Today the Hollywood Reporter is claiming that actor James Hong will be joining and is set to play the Ryan Reynold's avatar. The avatar's are like the possessed human forms that other humans see. Yesterday we bought you news that hot model Marisa Miller would be playing Jeff Bridges avatar. Hong has been around almost as long as film itself appearing in endless strings of movies and TV shows. He'll forever be etched in mind however as Lo Pan in John Carpenter's awesome 'Big Trouble in Little China'. Kevin Bacon ('Super'), Stephanie Szostak and Mary-Louise Parker ('Weeds', 'Red') all co-star.
"Welcome to the Rest In Peace Department -- the devoted, yet dead, officers of divine law enforcement "patrolling the deadbeat...reporting to one boss." Yep -- THAT boss. Nick Cruz was murdered by an unknown assailent, at the height of his personal and professional life. Now he's traded a hundred years of service to the R.I.P.D. in exchange for a shot at finding who killed him. Unfortunately his search will take him to Hell and back -- literally!"
'R.I.P.D.' is unleashed on cinema-goers everywhere from 28 June 2013.
