Moh, a martial artist himself, appeared as Triton in the 2017 Marvel series “Inhumans.” His other credits include “Empire,” “Street Fighter: Resurrection” and “Kamen Rider: Dragon Knight.”

He was confirmed to be part of the movie’s cast last month, but his role was not specified, The Wrap reported.

Moh is a Bruce Lee fan himself, paying the legend tribute in YouTube videos and a tweet commemorating his 45th death anniversary last month.

“It’s been 45 years since this man passed. Bruce Lee has inspired me in so many ways,” Moh wrote. “Martial arts, acting, his philosophies on life. But look at the loving way he looked at his children. I know the exact feeling he felt.”

“RIP Bruce. Walk on.”

Moh’s role in “Hollywood” touches on Lee’s connection to Sharon Tate, who was murdered along with her friends by members of the infamous Manson Family.

Speculations that Lee killed Tate and her friends could be an angle explored in the upcoming movie, according to Cinema Blend.

“Hollywood” also stars Margot Robbie, who plays Tate, as well as Brad Pitt and Leonardo DiCaprio, who will play her fictional neighbors.

The movie opens on July 26, 2019.
