Daniel Dae Kim to Replace Ed Skrein in 'Hellboy' Reboot Following Whitewashing Controversy

Daniel Dae Kim is in talks to join the upcoming Hellboy reboot in the role of Major Ben Daimio after Ed Skrein dropped out of the project amid a whitewashing controversy.

Skrein decided to leave the film after there was an outcry over a white actor playing an Asian-American character.

In the Hellboy comics, the character is Japanese-American and described as a “rugged military member of the bureau for paranormal research and defense who, due to a supernatural encounter, can turn into a jaguar when angered or in pain,” according to THR.

Daniel recently quit his role on the television series Hawaii Five-0 due to a salary dispute with CBS.

Freddie Highmore's 'The Good Doctor' Character Is Not A Representative of Autism

Freddie Highmore sits on a panel for his new show The Good Doctor at the 2017 Summer Television Critics Association Press Tour held at the Beverly Hilton on Sunday (August 6) in Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 25-year-old actor was joined at the panel by his co-stars Hill Harper, Nicholas Gonzalez, Richard Schiff, and Antonia Thomas, along with executive producers Daniel Dae Kim and David Shore.

While at the panel, David revealed that the show is not a representative of Autism, which the main character is diagnosed with.

“We saw a lot of doctors, we consulted with people, we’ve got people on the spectrum who we’re working with,” he said, via Deadline. “But he is a specific character, he’s not there to represent autism, he’s there to represent Dr. Shaun Murphy.”

FYI: Freddie is wearing an Original Penguin shirt.
