Bio

Reggie Lee is a Filipino-born American actor best known for his role as William Kim on the second season of the television action series Prison Break (2006-2007), and as Tai Huang in two Pirates of the Caribbean films.

He currently stars as Sgt. Wu, an officer in the Portland Police Department, in the supernatural police procedural television series Grimm, since 2011.

He also starred in Life As We Know It with Katherine Heigl, and appeared in Here Comes the Boom with Kevin James and Salma Hayek. Lee can also be seen starring opposite Jason Statham in the Lionsgate action feature Safe.

Since having starred as Lance Nguyen - the snakeskin-wearing, motorcycle-riding, cold-blooded killer - in Universal's high-octane blockbuster The Fast and the Furious in 2001, Lee has also appeared in Masked and Anonymous with Bob Dylan, the Sci-Fi Channel's thriller Frankenfish, Net Games, X.C.U. and the horror film Dimples.

Lee had a memorable role opposite Alison Lohman and Justin Long in Sam Raimi's thriller for Universal Pictures, Drag Me to Hell. He was also seen in Ben Stiller's directorial debut, Tropic Thunder, opposite Ben Stiller, Jack Black and Robert Downey Jr.

On television, Lee portrayed the role of Zhing Zhang in the comedy Luis. He also appeared as Officer Jim Chang on Lifetime's The Division, Dr. Oliver Lee on Judging Amy and Assistant District Attorney Brian Chin on Philly.

He also had regular roles on Persons Unknown and No Ordinary Family.

Additionally, Lee has guest starred on more than 20 television shows, including ER, Ellen Again, Strong Medicine, Mad About You, Walker, Texas Ranger, Diagnosis Murder, Chicago Hope, Beverly Hills 90210, Babylon 5, Party of Five and The Magic Pearl, the first all-Asian animation for TV.

Born in Quezon City, Philippines, Lee is the eldest of three sons and, in addition to English, continues to speak Tagalog and conversational Mandarin and Cantonese. As a child, the family moved to Cleveland, Ohio, where Lee graduated from a Franciscan high school.

The 1990s found him relocating to Los Angeles where he immediately found work in television and theatre. He then hit the road and toured nationally in the musical Heartstrings, and later in Miss Saigon, and was ultimately cast in the original company of the 1994 Tony Award-winning Broadway revival of Rodgers and Hammerstein's Carousel.

In 1997, Lee received a Drama-Logue Critics Award for his performance in F.O.B. at East West Players and continues to be active with the nation's leading Asian American theatre.
