Earlier this summer, Netflix revealed the main cast for its Avatar: The Last Airbender live-action series.

The Hollywood Reporter has now announced that Daniel Dae Kim has joined the cast and will play the series regular role of Fire Lord Ozai, also known as the “ruthless driven leader of the Fire Nation who demands everyone live up to his impossible standards, especially his teen son, Prince Zuko.” The story follows Ozai’s motivation to conquer the world as he goes on to try to fulfill his destiny of finishing the war started by his ancestors.

Kim joins a recently announced cast that features Gordon Cormier, Kiawentiio, Ian Ousley and Dallas Liu. Amongst Kim’s credits are Hawaii Five-O, Lost and Hellboy. Albert Kim will be the central writer on the show with executive producers Dan Lin, Lindsey Liberatore and Michael Goi working alongside director Roseanne Liang.

Avatar: The Last Airbender is expected to release on Netflix in late 2022.

In other entertainment news, Robert Downey Jr. and Matt Damon have joined the cast of Christopher Nolan’s Oppenheimer film.
