Ken Leung Joins The Cast Of ABC’s Inhumans As Karnak

The Night Shift star Ken Leung will play the role of Karnak in ABC‘s planned adaptation of Marvel‘s Inhumans comics.

Although he is probably most recognizable for his roles as Topher Zia on the NBC medical drama and Miles Straume on the highly-popular sci-fi show Lost, Leung has an extensive film and TV resume that has seen him appear in many projects. He has had guest appearances in programs from Oz and Law and Order to The Sopranos and The Good Wife, while also having bit roles in movies as diverse as Vanilla Sky, X-Men: The Last Stand, Saw V, and most recently, Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

A minister for the show’s leader Black Bolt, the character Leung will play stands out from his fellow Inhumans is that he did not gain his power from the Terrigen Mists that bestowed the others with their abilities. How Karnak developed the power to see the fault in everyone and everything is a mystery for the time being.

Superherohype, the source of this story, had this to share about the series’ production and premiere:

Set to debut this September, a version of the first two episodes of the new ABC series will premiere exclusively in IMAX theatres for a two-week window, prior to the 8-episode network run.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
