Randall Park Joining The Cast Of Ant-Man And The Wasp
Marvel's Ant-Man and The Wasp is slowly starting to come into focus, and now the film has added yet another talented actor to the mix.
The newest addition is Fresh Off The Boat actor Randall Park, who also lights up the screen on HBO's popular series Veep (via Tracking Board). As for the role he's playing, it is rumored to be SHIELD agent and Agents of Atlas member Jimmy Woo, but that hasn't been confirmed by Marvel. He joins a cast that includes Paul Rudd and Evangeline Lilly, who are reprising their roles from the original film.
Also returning is director Peyton Reed, who guaranteed previously that the sequel will deliver some things fans aren't expecting.
"We've actually been holed up in the room writing the movie — myself, Paul Rudd, Adam McKay, Andrew Barrer and Gab Ferrari," Reed told us. "So we're formulating the whole structure of the movie. And I can't really tell you too much yet, except there are going to be things in this movie that you've never seen in any movie before. It's going to be nuts!"
In Ant-Man, forced out of his own company by former protégé Darren Cross, Dr. Hank Pym (Michael Douglas) recruits the talents of Scott Lang (Paul Rudd), a master thief just released from prison. Lang becomes Ant-Man, trained by Pym and armed with a suit that allows him to shrink in size, possess superhuman strength and control an army of ants. The miniature hero must use his new skills to prevent Cross, also known as Yellowjacket, from perfecting the same technology and using it as a weapon for evil.
Ant-Man was directed by Peyton Reed, with a screenplay by Edgar Wright & Joe Cornish and Adam McKay & Paul Rudd, and stars Rudd, Evangeline Lilly, Corey Stoll, Bobby Cannavale, Michael Peña, Tip "T.I." Harris, Anthony Mackie, Wood Harris, Judy Greer, David Dastmalchian, and Michael Douglas.
Ant-Man and the Wasp is again directed by Peyton Reed, with Andrew Barrer and Gabriel Farrari providing the screenplay and Adam McKay and Paul Rudd providing the story. The film stars Paul Rudd (Scott Lang/Ant-Man), Evangeline Lilly (Hope van Dyne/The Wasp), Michael Pena (Luis), Michael Douglas (Hank Pym), T.I. (Dave), Hannah John-Kamen, and David Dastmalchian (Kurt).
