Hellboy IS Replacing Ed Skrein With An Asian American Actor!

no title

Looks like this is one example of whitewashing that's actually getting cleaned up!

Two weeks ago, Brit hunk Ed Skrein gracefully (and very publicly) dropped out of Hellboy after being informed the role he had taken was half Japanese in comics.

Ed's unprecedentedly selfless move had a lot of eyes on the project, so producers were forced to find a more appropriate choice.

And now it looks like they have in LOST vet Daniel Dae Kim.

According to multiple outlets, the Korean-American actor, who recently made headlines for leaving Hawaii Five-0 over not being paid as much as his costars, is in talks to replace Skrein as Major Ben Daimio.

Daniel is a strong corrective choice for the role both in being the correct race (though not nationality) AND because he's a longtime advocate for diversity in TV and film.

If talks go well, he will join Stranger Things star David Harbour and Milla Jovovich in the reboot, expected to hit theaters next year.

What do YOU think of the casting shakeup??

In case you hadn't heard, Deadpool villain Ed Skrein decided to step up and do the right thing.

When he found out the Hellboy role he'd scored was half Japanese in the comic books — and that his playing him, inadvertent or not, would be another example of Hollywood whitewashing — he quickly dropped out of the project with a thoughtful announcement.

Ron Perlman Guillermo Del Toro want Hellboy 3

It's been five years since we saw Ron Perlman protecting humanity from the underworld in Hellboy 2: The Golden Army, but it might only be a few more until he does it again in Hellboy 3.

We thought Guillermo Del Toro was done with the franchise — only because we didn't hear anything about plans for a third — but as it turns out, he's been itching for another!

While chillin' with Perlman at Comic-Con to promote their latest monster movie, Pacific Rim, Del Toro announced, "I can say publicly that now we are together in trying [to do Hellboy 3]."

According to the 62-year-old actor who plays the titular character, they want to finish the story the way Del Toro intended to finish it. The Sons of Anarchy star explained:
