Ke Huy Quan is back with a vengeance. The actor once made a big splash in films like The Goonies and Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom but was unable to truly land a role for many years. Now, the actor returned to theaters with a stunning performance in Everything Everywhere all at Once, which just recently won him a Golden Globe for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture.
That’s not all he has planned, as the actor is also set to kick off his first franchise role as part of Loki‘s second season. Details are still being kept a secret on who exactly he might be playing, but in an interview with Josh Horowitz‘s Happy Sad Confused podcast, the actor revealed a rather interesting detail.
In the interview, the actor revealed that he didn’t actually audition for the role. Rather, Kevin Feige watched Everything Everywhere All at Once and personally asked him if he was interested in joining the Marvel Cinematic Universe. There was a lot of fanfare when he was announced as part of the cast during D23 and it’s even more exciting to find out that Feige personally wanted him on board.
Here’s hoping that the actor has many more roles just waiting for him after his recent success, and we’ll also get a tease on who exactly he is playing once the first full trailer for Loki‘s second season releases. He’s a talented actor and it would be great to see a lot more of him in the future, in more future MCU titles, and any other project he’ll join.
