Perhaps best known for her breakout role in Downsizing, Chau is set to play a key role on Watchmen. Not much is known about her character, aside from the fact she will be Vietnamese and called Lady T. Hong Chau joins a stacked cast including Regina King, Jeremy Irons, Don Johnson, and Louis Gossett Jr. to name a few.
Her casting announcement only increases my anticipation for the show. I first saw Chau in Amazon’s Homecoming where she has a small, but increasingly pivotal role as the season concludes . She was also excellent in the stand-alone episode of Forever with Jason Mitchell and hilarious on the latest season of Bojack Horseman as Pickles.
