The nuclear titan is finally showing signs of radioactivity from the depths, with the scripting finished and the production date rolling up very soon, casting is now called into play.



Joining the cast of Legendary Picture's Godzilla is Aaron Shang! Assigned to be a character known as Carl Takahashi within the movie.

A bit of a background detail upon the actor himself:


Date of Birth
5 August 1996, USA

Beginning in the early 2000's, Aaron has appeared in numerous Chinese, American, and British film and TV productions; he is also a descendant of China's most prominent family in entertainment and media. Though best known for his co-starring role in the award-winning Chinese historical drama show "Three Kingdoms", Shang has also appeared in numerous international feature films as supporting or minor characters, while also contributing to several productions as a musician.

Aaron is the youngest descendant of the prominent Shang family in Chinese media, and is the only member of his generation yet to publicly announce a career in entertainment.

Avid supporter of international humanitarian efforts. In 2010, Aaron traveled to Southeast Asia with his family to establish education for children in several rural villages.

Films and Shows:
Three Kingdoms as Sima Yan
Good Luck Charlie as Willy Zhang
Detective Dee and the Mystery of the Phantom Flame as shaizi
Entourage as Willie Lee
Gary Unmarried
Curse of the Golden Flower

Nominations:
Best Supporting Actor for Three Kingdoms in 2010 along side Hao Chen
Award: Hundred Flowers Award


While he's been seen within these medias, it appears that finding any pictures of the actor are surprisingly slim. Then again since he hasn't publicly announced himself and his career, then its probably intentional for whatever reason the actor has decide it upon.

With him being cast into GODZILLA(2014), and given his roles being mostly of Supporting Characters from his past workings. Its best to conclude that Aaron Shang will not be the top lead character, or among the top leading characters until stated or announced otherwise by Legendary Picture's themselves. While we may not know his role, he'll most likely be assigned a supporting character role within the film to help flesh out the main character(s). (Whoever he or she, or they may be).

Well that's all for now, the beast is still moving through the watery void, and radiation levels are steadily building. As 2012 comes to close, continue to keep a look out for this monstrous movie. We might get a few more interesting details before the reign of 2013 begins.

Don't know who this actor is, but hopefully it start's in Japan an then moves to the U.S.

Maybe Godzilla travels to feed on a nuclear reactor, much like he did in ''Godzilla 1985'' would be cool to see his spines light up blue as he feeds.

Glad casting has started though, but isn't he a little young? Didn't Drew age up the characters? Maybe he doesn't have a main role i dunno.

@nailbiter111, its been right so far about the Godzilla film in general, don't see why someone would purposely want to ill inform others upon a Godzilla film. I'm aware that it can be edited by mostly anyone, but none the less its still a decent credible source despite that.

i have found it to be less than credible more often than not, but think what you like.

Alright then, same with you.

Didn't imdb say Maria Hill was skrull princess?

That guy's IMDB info is a little odd. It says he's the youngest descendant of the prominent Shang family in Chinese media, and is the only member of his generation yet to publicly announce a career in entertainment, but it doesn't name any of these other people. Who is the Shang family?

If he's a member of a prominent Chinese entertainment family, why does he have random credits for random American shows like Gary Unmarried and Good Luck Charlie?

He was credited for playing the piano in The Lizzie McGuire Movie at about 6 years old?

And Elizabeth Banks is his godmother? Okay.

Also, he's 6'1? He's Chinese, 16 years old and he's 6'1? Not impossible, but a little suspect.

Is this a real person? It feels like somebody created a profile and threw together some vague credits that can't be proven or disproved. You can't even Google this guy.

@tazmaniak

In reading you comment I understood your point, but considering the context of all this, all the things you listed would actually make sense together.

Not saying that its true, just saying it's not so left field as it might first seem.
