About the Cast
Will Yun Lee (Marcus)
WILL YUN LEE (Marcus) was born in Arlington, Virginia, to parents recently emigrated from Korea. He was raised by both immediate and extended family and moved often, exposed to life on the tough Bronx streets and idyllic Hawaiian beaches. By his teens he was living in the San Francisco area with his father, a Korean Tae Kwon Do Grandmaster. Lee also became an accomplished martial artist and won an athletic scholarship to the University of California at Berkeley.
While in school, Lee worked at the East Bay Asian Youth Centre teaching high-risk teens from ghetto neighborhoods not unlike those he had known as a child in the Bronx. It was there that his ongoing commitment to young people began, a commitment that continues to play an important role in his life.
It was also at this time that he became seriously interested in acting, and after landing a role in Nash Bridges (1997), he moved to Los Angeles to pursue his career. Guest star roles in series such as "Profiler" (1998) and "Brimstone" (1998) led to a role in the TV movie "The Disciples" (2000) for UPN, and soon after to "What's Cooking" (2000) and TNT's "Witchblade" (2000).
In 2002 he was named by People Magazine as one of their "50 Most Beautiful People" which quickly lead to high profile roles in "Die Another Day" (2002), "Torque" (2004) and "Elektra" (2005). He has also acted on FX Network's television series "Thief" (2006), ABC Family's "Fallen" (2007) and was one of the main characters of NBC's science fiction television drama "Bionic Woman" (2007).
In November 2007, he was again recognized by People Magazine, this time as one of the members of their list of the "15 Sexiest Men Alive". Most recently he appears in the recurring role of Sang Min in the hit CBS series "Hawaii Five-O" (2010-2012).
Miguel Ferrer (Eli)
MIGUEL FERRER (Eli) was born in Santa Monica, the oldest of five children of Puerto Rico born Academy-winner Jose Ferrer and American singer Rosemary Clooney. Ferrer played the drums on Keith Moon's "Two Sides of the Moon".
Ferrer began his career in the early 1980s making guest appearances on episodic television. He had a major role in the 1987 action movie "RoboCop" as the aspiring, cocaine-snorting corporate executive Bob Morton. Since then, Ferrer has been cast in many major movies. Ferrer's notable screen roles include a sinister biker in "Valentino Returns" (1988), an engineer in "DeepStar Six" (1989), Commander Arvid Harbinger in the comedy "Hot Shots! Part Deux" (1993) and Eduardo Ruiz in "Traffic" (2000).
In the early 1990s, Ferrer appeared on three primetime TV series simultaneously: as D.A. Todd Spurrier in "Shannon's Deal" (1989--1991), as Cajun cop Beau Jack Bowman in "Broken Badges" (1990--1991), and as cynical, wittily abrasive FBI forensics specialist Albert Rosenfeld in "Twin Peaks" (1990--91). He played another medical examiner on the small screen, Dr Garret Macy, in the television crime/drama series "Crossing Jordan" (2001--07).
Ferrer performed as the voice of the Heretic leader in the video game "Halo 2", as well as the protagonist, Jack, in the video game "BioShock". In 1999, at the 41st Grammy Awards, he was nominated for "Best Spoken Word Album for Children" in Disney's "The Lion King II", "Simba's Pride Read-Along". In 2003, Ferrer made his New York stage debut in the off-Broadway production of "The Exonerated".
On television, Ferrer played Jonas Bledsoe on NBC's update of the "Bionic Woman" series (2007) and starred in the NBC series, "Kings" (2009) as a military commander of Gath. He currently portrays NCIS Assistant Director Owen Granger in the TV series "NCIS: Los Angeles" (2012).
