Daniel Dae Kim has a villainous new gig!
He’s joined Netflix’s live action adaptation of Avatar: The Last Airbender and will play Fire Lord Ozai, the father of Prince Zuko and Princess Azula.
The streaming service made the announcement on Twitter describing his character as “the ruthlessly-driven leader of the Fire Nation!”
Daniel also confirmed the news on his Insta sharing a gif of the animated Fire Lord with the caption, “it’s gettin’ hot in here…”

Daniel has been involved in the Last Airbender franchise a number of times already including in 2006, when he voiced General Fong in the animated series by Nickelodeon and the video game that came out a year later.
He’s already had a busy year co-starring in National Geographic’s The Hot Zone: Anthrax which is due out later this month.
No word on when we’ll get to see him as the Fire Lord just yet.
