Reggie Lee ("The Fast & The FuriousÂ?) joins an all-star cast as villain pirate Tai Huang. Lee will star opposite Johnny Depp, Keira Knightley, Orlando Bloom and Chow Yun Fat in the third installment of the popular Disney film.

Reggie Lee (“The Fast and The Furious”) has landed a supporting lead in the third installment of Disney’s “Pirates of the Caribbean” directed by Gore Verbinski and produced by Jerry Bruckheimer. Lee stars opposite Johnny Depp, Orlando Bloom, Keira Knightley, and Chow Yun Fat as a villainous Pirate named Tai Huang. Lee filmed some initial scenes with Depp in April while both sequels were filming concurrently on St. Vincent in the Caribbean. He resumes filming in late August in Los Angeles and the Bahamas through 2006. “Pirates of the Caribbean 3” is due in theatres in 2007.

Lee’s character is involved in several of the film’s stunt sequences for which he will undergo ‘pirate training’ in preparation. He looks forward to the physical demands of the role, which will be no problem for the avid athlete.

Reggie Lee is represented by David Shapira and Associates and managed by Ricki Maslar for RGM Entertainment. Lee recently wrapped filming the lead in the horror film “Dimples” (written by Dusty DePree and Ron Johnson and directed by DePree) due in theaters in Fall 2006.

Since his breakout role in the blockbuster “The Fast and the Furious,” Reggie Lee has appeared in several films including “Masked and Anonymous,” “Frankenfish,” and the upcoming feature “X.C.U. (Extreme Close-Up.)” He had recurring roles on television as Dr. Oliver Lee on CBS’ “Judging Amy” and rookie cop Jim Chang on Lifetime’s “The Division,” starred in the Fox series “Luis” with Luis Guzman, and has guest-starred on over twenty-five television shows including “ER,” “Strong Medicine,” “Mad About You,” “Ellen Again,” “Babylon 5,” “Walker Texas Ranger,” “Beverly Hills 90210,” “Party of Five” and provided the voice for a lead character in ABC’s “The Magic Pearl’ (the first all-Asian animation for television).
