THE RAID & FAST & FURIOUS 6 Martial Artist Joins The Cast Of STAR TREK BEYOND

It seems like Justin Lin's recruiting plenty of talented fighters to join the cast of his eagerly anticipated sci-fi sequel, Star Trek Beyond. The Raid star Joe Taslim is the latest actor to be beamed aboard. Read on for more details about his role...


The cast of Star Trek Beyond just got a little bigger. The Hollywood Reporter have revealed that Indonesian actor and martial arts specialist Joe Taslim has been beamed aboard to join the cast of Justin Lin's sequel. Details on his role are currently sketchy, but THR are claiming that it is "a key part" opposite Idris Elba, who plays the movie's villain. Taslim is the third addition to the film's talented ensemble cast, joining Elba and Kingsman's Sofia Boutella on the project.

Taslim made his breakthrough with his role as a police officer in Gareth Evans' popular cult action hit, The Raid. However, he may be more recognizable to moviegoers for his small part as one of Luke Evans' supporting villains in 2013's Fast & Furious 6 (which was also directed by Lin). Whoever he is playing, chances are it'll be a very physical role - and he's sure to give Kirk and his crew a tough time! What are your thoughts on this casting? Sound off in the comments below!

Star Trek Beyond currently has a July 8, 2016 release date - just in time to celebrate the popular franchise's 50th Anniversary.
