Over the years, Steven Yeun has become one of those actors where the second his casting is announced, the film immediately jumps to the top of the most-anticipated release list. It’s clear that Yeun is being selective about his roles, popping up in adventurous and genre-pushing films like “I Origins,” “Okja,” “Mayhem,” “Burning,” “The Humans” and “Sorry to Bother You.” In addition to his live-action performances, Yeun has also lent his voice to animated projects like “Voltron: Legendary Defender,” “Tales of Arcadia,” “Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters,” “Final Space,” “Tuca & Bertie,” and “Invincible.”
No details are yet available regarding which character Yeun will be playing in Bong Joon-Ho’s new film, but rest assured, he will be utilized properly. Bong Joon-Ho is a dream director for actors, as his films always feature meaty roles that serve as an actor’s playground. Yeun was absolutely fantastic as an animal rights activist in “Okja” and there’s no doubt he’ll be equally as wonderful in this new flick.
