Karl Yune To Play 'Maseo Yamashiro' In Season Three Of ARROW

Real Steel and Speed Racer star Karl Yune is the latest addition to the cast of season three of Arrow, and he will be playing 'Maseo Yamashiro' in what is described as a major recurring role. What is his connection to Oliver Queen and Katana? Read on for details...

According to TVLine, Karl Yune (Memoirs of a Geisha) has landed the role of Maseo Yamashiro in the highly anticipated third season of The CW's Arrow

The site reveals that he will be introduced in the series through Oliver Queen's flashbacks as the vigilante's handler. However, over time, their relationship will evolve to the point when Maseo becomes a friend and mentor to Ollie, helping him to become the current day hero he is in Starling City.

In the comic books, Maseo is the husband of Tatsu Yamashiro, better known as Katana (who it was revealed yesterday will be played by Sin City actress Devon Aoki). Like his wife, he's also a skilled martial artist. 

It will be interesting to see how they handle the flashbacks with a new cast of characters and a very different setting, but with the island now fully explored, it should help keep fans interested in learning more about The Arrow's five years away from Starling City.
