Hollywood screenwriter acts in Athena

Er… I can’t be the only one who finds this news random. The production company of upcoming spy drama Athena: Goddess of War has announced that a famous Hollywood screenwriter will be acting in the drama: It’s Douglas Day Stewart of 1980s hits The Blue Lagoon and An Officer and a Gentleman.

In the drama, Stewart plays the head of Athena, which, like IRIS in the original series IRIS, is a secret underground organization. He’s therefore the “key to the secret” in a number of cases; he’s also the fierce, poker-faced boss who gives baddie Cha Seung-won his orders, which explains the stills pictured here.

So how’d Stewart get involved in the first place? According to a rep from Taewon Entertainment, Athena’s production company, he caught their eye at auditions held in Hawaii, which is one of the drama’s numerous foreign shoot locales. Apparently they liked him right away and cast him without knowing of his credits as a writer, which they discovered after bringing him onboard.

The stills with co-star Su Ae were filmed in Hawaii as well, and the production plans to head to New Zealand next; they’ll travel at the end of November.

Athena will air following Giant beginning in December.

Not going to lie, in the second picture he looks pretty badass.

I wonder what's going on and why he decided to act and in a KDrama no less...

Still, It's so nice to see that parts of hollywood are aware of a life and culture outside of themselves.

So. Random.

hahaha

random... so random... especially the movies he wrote... i suppose we should be expecting some English from Cha Seungwon then.

you know what would be equally random, but awesome? if they got a Korean actor/actress to cameo in Hawaii Five-0! they're always over there anyway - it makes perfect sense
:D

I hope CSW's English is not horrendous, I don't want to ruin my sexy, sexy image of him. Now, if he spoke English decently, well then I might just keel over from the amount of hotness and charisma he oozes multiplied the fact that he is speaking it in a language I can understand. Ow OW!

uhhhh - is Stewart's career on the decline so he decided to act in a kdrama just for the heck of it? or is he a secret Cha Seung Won worshipper?

either way - he seems to have a big part, since we never got to see the head of IRIS - only heard his voice, if i recall correctly...

Hehe he kind of look like Dustin Hoffman but taller. He could also pass for a mafia crime boss on the 2nd picture which I like.

CSW seemed to have lost weight. He looks leaner than his usual self. I hope he's fully recovered. Can't help noticing that even with Soo Ae's high-heeled shoes, CSW still towers over her. =)

I can't remember its name, but Tony Curtis had a large role in a Kdrama not too many years ago. This one was also set in Hawai'i

Yes-He was a plantation owner in Hawai'i in that drama. I can't remember too much about it (some of these dramas all blend together after a while), but his role was very prominent in it-it was not just a cameo. I seem to remember the female lead was his maid,or something like that. Anyway, I can't find any mention of it in his film and TV credits in Wikipedia.

Heh-Google is my friend. Man,how time flies! this drama was in '94-'95. I was sure I watched it just a few years ago. it was called 'Ingan ui ddang' ('Land of the people'), and it was set in Mexico-it was about a group of Koreans who immigrated to Mexico in 1903. He was the cruel overseer on the plantation where they were enslaved.
