NINJA ASSASSIN

RICK YUNE (Takeshi) is continually expanding his career with an array of critically acclaimed projects and box office successes. Last year, Yune starred in "The Fifth Commandment,” a film he also wrote and produced. Also starring Dania Ramirez and Bokeem Woodbine, the feature chronicled an assassin, played by Yune, who refuses to carry out an assignment on a target.

Yune also starred in Rob Cohen's hit action film "The Fast and the Furious” as Johnny Tran, and in the James Bond film "Die Another Day” as the diamond-scarred villain, Zao. Yune's acting debut in Scott Hicks' "Snow Falling on Cedars,” with Ethan Hawke, received critical acclaim. Yune's other credits include television appearances on "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” "Alias,” and "Boston Legal,” among others.

A Washington, D.C., native, Yune's foray into acting came after a highly successful career outside of Hollywood. A graduate of University of Pennsylvania's prestigious The Wharton School and a former Wall Street trader, Yune made the career transition into entertainment at the height of his Wall Street success, focusing instead on his passion for acting and the entertainment industry. Beginning with a pioneering modeling career with Versace and Ralph Lauren's Polo Sport—becoming the first Asian- American model for either design house—he easily transitioned to acting. He has since received accolades from both film critics and fans, including a Best Villain Kid's Choice Award for "The Fast and the Furious,” and has also been deemed a Sexiest Man Alive by People Magazine in its annual special issue.
