Just recently, I posted about Devon Aoki being cast in a recurring role in the upcoming season of Arrow. Well, her character has a husband named Maseo Yamashiro, and he will be played by Karl Yune.
Like Devon, Karl has been kind of out of the limelight the past few years, but this new role could revive his career. (I’m hoping!)
TVLine has learned that Karl Yune has landed the major recurring role of Maseo Yamashiro, who will be introduced in flashbacks as Oliver’s handler. Over time, he also will evolve into a teacher and a friend who helps Oliver step ever closer to becoming the superhero he is today.
Maseo is the husband of Tatsu Yamashiro aka DC Comics superheroine “Katana” (to be played by Sin City‘s Devon Aoki), and is a skilled martial artist in his own right.
Karl most recent movie role was in the Rock’em Sock’em type movie Real Steel. But his best role was probably in 2005’s period piece based on a book of the same name, Memoirs of a Geisha.
