So, who is that hot Asian guy in X-Men? That my friends, is Daniel Henney. Why do I feel as if this is groundbreaking news as I am shoving a double chocolate chip muffin in my mouth!?!

Uh hello? Just look at him.

I first saw Daniel Henney in a Bean Pole advertisement with Gwyneth Paltrow, and I am glad he was able to snag a part in X-Men. It is quite refreshing to have a new Korean American Actor (well hapa) whom was able to hit the mainstream circuit (other than John Cho). And, why do they always typecast Asians to be super nerdy or heinously bad? *Cough* Henney was cast as the quintessential “Bad Asian” guy in X-Men.

In the mean time, while we work on breaking typecasting borders, let’s gawk.

Daniel Phillip Henney (born November 28, 1979, Korean: 다니엘 헤니) is an American expatriate actor in South Korea.

His father is British and his mother is a Korean-American adoptee. Henney debuted as a model in several Korean and foreign ads. He most famously co-starred in the Korean hit drama, My Name is Kim Sam Soon. A recent article in the L.A. Times on Henney reflects the western film industry’s interest in him, and landed his first role in a Western film as David North (Agent Zero) in the film X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
