In addition to 5-0, Dacascos’ TV credits include roles on Chicago P.D. and General Hospital. (And let’s not forget his iconic turn as Iron Chef: America‘s Chairman.)

    Happy to see Mark Dacascos’ new role on Agents of SHIELD and I think he’s going to fit in well now that his villainous role as Wo Fat on Hawaii Five-O is done.

    Digging the casting choice… But I also see him heading for a heel turn sooner or later.

    And yes, I used a wrestling term. Yay.
