Tarantino’s ‘Once Upon A Time In Hollywood’ casts Mike Moh as Bruce Lee. Fucking Bruce Lee? Amazing
Bruce fucking Lee is going to be in Tarantino’s Once Upon A Time In Hollywood? I don’t know what the fuck is going on, but I love it. Also, I didn’t know Lee was involved with the tragic story that Tarantino’s movie is based on. But, here I am. Getting learned and being fucking stoked.
Quentin Tarantino has found his Bruce Lee for “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” TheWrap has learned. Mike Moh, who has repeatedly paid tribute to Lee online, will play the kung-fu master in Tarantino’s film set in the era of the Manson murders.
Moh was named as a member of the cast last month, but his role was not officially released. Individuals with knowledge of the project told to TheWrap this week that Moh will play Lee. That’s fitting, because Moh has honored Lee in YouTube videos (see below) and a tweet last month on the 45th anniversary of Lee’s death.
“It’s been 45 years since this man passed,” tweeted Moh, who is best known for playing Triton on Marvel’s “The Inhumans.” “#brucelee has inspired me in so many ways… Martial arts, acting, his philosophies on life. But look at the loving way he looked at his children. I know the exact feeling he felt RIP Bruce. Walk on”
The question of who would play Lee has interested his fans since news broke that Lee would appear in the film — though his appearance is likely to be brief.
For a brief time after the murders of his pregnant wife, Sharon Tate, and some of their closest friends, director Roman Polanski very wrongly believed that Bruce Lee may have killed them.
