Korean American Actor Cast In ‘Glee’ Role

Korean American actor Keong Sim has been tapped to play the father of ‘Glee’ character Mike Chang, according to Entertainment Weekly.

The Chicago native is set to appear alongside veteran actress Tamlyn Tomita as the parents of the character played by Harry Shum, Jr., EW reported.

The duo will appear in the third episode of the season, which airs Oct. 4.

Last month, Murphy told reporters that he wants to put the spotlight on other members of the cast this season. “I think one of the things that we’re doing for season three is servicing more of the kids,” Murphy said. “I don’t think there’s been enough Amber. I don’t think here’s been enough Jenna or Harry …It’s hard on me because I love all those actors and they’re so talented and I feel an obligation to showcase their talent, and this year I think we’re going to do that a little better.”

Sim, a veteran stage actor, had a small role in “The Last Airbender,” directed by M. Night Shyamalan. Tomita is best known for her role in “The Karate Kid 2” and has numerous TV credits.
