Sung Kang Interview
CS: One of the coolest things to me about your role in this franchise is that it’s not just your fourth “Fast & Furious” film, it’s your fifth time playing Han. We’ve also known his fate since “Tokyo Drift.” How does it feel to finally have him meet his fate?
Sung Kang: Yeah, I’m grateful that I was able to play him as I became a little older and give him a proper sendoff. When I did “Tokyo Drift,” a lot of the philosophy that Han lived by I have actually gone through in my own life. As I got older, I realized that I really believe in those philosophies, like the importance of family. I’m happy that I get to wrap it up this way. It’s a pretty cool farewell for a character.
CS: You’ve also worked with Justin Lin on every one of those five films. How has your working relationship with him developed throughout the franchise?
Kang: It’s a privilege to have a relationship that has lasted long enough that we’ve developed a shorthand. We’ll both come to set and there’s not much to discuss. We can just start rolling film. The process is a lot quicker and easier. We’re able to be much more fluid. He can just give me a nod and I know that it’s gonna be good.
CS: One of the interesting aspects about the “Fast & Furious” franchise is that the characters seem to mature a bit. They’re not just action heroes.
Kang: Absolutely. It’s really a privilege to get to do that. Whenever you want maturity, you need to develop a mature relationship behind the camera, too. Being able to grow together with all the actors has been really cool.
CS: How are your driving skills now compared to at the start of the series?
Kang: I’ve actually started to drive slower. I never want to see a news headline that reads, “The Chinese Guy from ‘Fast & Furious’ Pulled Over for a Speeding Ticket”. (laughs) I can already see it, so every time I start going crazy, I pull it back.
CS: What’s the next step for you career-wise?
Kang: I actually just shot a TV pilot, so I’m really looking forward to getting it to TV. TV has become so good. It’s been a while now that really good TV is on cable, but now even the networks are really taking some chances. I recently finished a pilot with the writer of the “Fast & Furious” movies, Chris Morgan. It’s for Fox and it’s called “Gang Related.” We find out tomorrow if we get picked up or not. [Editor’s note: “Gang Related” has since been picked up for the network’s 2013-2014 season] I’ve been really looking forward to the next chapter of my life. I can hold down at home for a few years, hopefully, and start a family. I’ve been such a transient. As I get older, there’s less glamour involved with being on location.
CS: What’s your role in “Gang Related”?
Kang: It’s about a gang task force that is headed by Terry O’Quinn from “LOST.” He’s our captain and we’re trying to take down the big cartels that sell crystal meth. He pretty much creates this task force from cops that are instructed to not only go after the bad guys but after their families. Then there’s the lead, Ramon Rodriguez. Remember the Matt Damon in “The Departed”? He was adopted into the family by Jack Nicholson. It has that story element to it. It’s such a great cast. We have a mini-Gisele, actually! An actress named Inbar [Lavi]. She’s a little shorter and with bigger boobs, but just like Gisele.
