Ken Leung cast as Karnak, the royal strategist for Marvel's Inhumans

Casting announcements for Marvel's INHUMANS television series are coming in hot and heavy now as today it's been announced that LOST and THE NIGHT SHIFT actor Ken Leung has been cast in the role of Karnak, the royal family's most trusted strategist and philosopher. The news comes nipping at the heels of it being confirmed that Anson Mount will lead the series as the silent king, Black Bolt, GAME OF THRONES actor Iwan Rheon has been cast as the villainous Maximus, and Serinda Swan is prepping for her role as the Inhuman queen Medusa

In commenting about the casting decision, executive producer Jeph Loeb stated, "Ken brings both a wisdom and a power to the role that no one else could match. His Karnak will be awesome." Additionally, INHUMANS showrunner Scott Buck offered some encouraging remarks about Leung joining the team by saying, "Ken Leung has a great natural intelligence that reads clearly and will add depth and complexity to the very complicated character of Karnak." 

Marvel's INHUMANS will debut in 1,000 IMAX theaters during Labor Day weekend this year, and will then come to ABC in the fall.

Extra Tidbit: If you're looking for a cool comic book run featuring Karnak, I highly recommend checking out Warren Ellis' 2015 series from Marvel Comics.
