It has been revealed that Ken Leung is set to join the cast of Lost for the show's upcoming fourth season, presumably beginning with the February 2008 season premiere. Pop culture fans may recognise Leung as Kid Omega from last year's wonderfully solid X-Men: The Last Stand or as mentally unstable Carter Chong on an episode of The Sopranos.
The report from TV Guide suggests the actor - who apparently "turned heads" in his role on the HBO series - will play the role of "a brilliant mathematician who is capable of great insights and has a tremendous knowledge across various scientific fields."
It's not much but, heck, in this long Lost drought any news will do, right? There's definitely something intense about Leung that could mean some interesting storylines.
Meanwhile, did anyone know this guy's 37 years old? Man, those Asians have good genes.
