Brian Tee Also Joins The Wolverine

Today has been a big day of casting for 20th Century Fox’s The Wolverine, directed by James Mangold, and it doesn’t end there as The Hollywood Reporter has added Brian Tee of the television show “Grimm” to the mix, playing Noburo Mori, a corrupt minister of justice who is slated to marry Mariko Yashida, the daughter of a Yakuza crime lord who falls for Logan when he comes to Japan.

Although the movie is said to be based on the 1982 limited series by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller, Noburo Mori is not a primary character of the story so this may be a smaller role.
