Ron stars opposite Hill Harper (CSI:NY), Chen Pei Pei (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon) and Eugenia Yuan (Mail Order Bride) in the upcoming film"The Shanghai Hotel" directed by Jerry Allen Davis shot in Brooklyn, New York. The story centers around current issues of human trafficking and forced prostitution.Ron had a recurring character arc as Medical Examiner Dr. Evan Zao in "CSI: NY" for Jerry Bruckheimer. Ron completed the indie-feature "Baby" a raw and brutal depiction of street-life in the 1980s and 90s. Ron stars as Tommy, the legendary gang-leader that becomes a streetwise mentor to the adolescent Baby. Ron also recently appeared in Doug Ellin & Mark Wahlberg's "Entourage" for HBO as the hip charismatic director Chaing who comes to the US from HK to direct his first American endeavor.In soon to be released Coalition Films "50 Pills" Ron is "The Seoul Man", a dangerous yet comical NYC druglord. "50 Pills" premiered 4/26 at the Tribecca Film Festival. Ron stars with Lou Taylor Pucci (Thumbsuckers, Empire Falls), Kristen Bell (Veronica Mars, Spartan), John Hensley (Nip Tuck), Michael Pena (Crash, World Trade Center 9/11) and many more of Hollywood's top young rising stars.Ron also portrayed a crazed carjacker in the series thriller "Sleeper Cell" for Showtime and in David E. Kelly's "Boston Legal" Ron played a tattoo artist who brands his victims with his own personal symbols. In Wolfgang Petersen's "The Agency", Ron memorably took on dual roles as a Muslim cleric and an undercover Marine double agent. Past guest roles include the critically acclaimed series "Robbery Homicide Division" (RHD/LA) for Michael Mann. Ron starred as the main villain Vinh, an underground arms dealer. In Robert Mark Kamen / WB's "Black Sash" Ron was the prodigal son Jing Li. In addition, Warner Bros / Joel Silver's feature "Cradle 2 the Grave" Ron starred with DMX and Jet Li playing the sleazy smart mouthed brains behind a ring of terrorists. He gained 30 lbs for the role.The key to Ron's success is his chameleon-like ability to connect with the variety of roles he's played. Whether he's taking on the part of a computer hacker, a religious fanatic, urban gangster or a gypsy in love, he brings to screen the core and essence of the character. He can play an inner-city dealer with the same commitment and conviction that he lends to a white-collar businessman. In Warner Brother's "The Art of War" (Morgan Creek), not only did Ron play the covert operative Ming, he was also the writer/ producer/ performer of the title cut on the film's score. Ron is uniquely positioned as a multi-faceted artist with a sensibility that transcends traditional cultural and racial barriers.A product of New York, Ron has studied with Tony Howarth, Roy London, Stella Adler, Uta Hagen (Herbert Berghof Studios), John Lehne (Actor's Studio). Ron was the only non-black actor to ever play Walter in "Raisin in the Sun" (In the Park) all the while bartending under-age at the famous Mr. Chow in New York. His first film was "Street Crimes" (HBO) playing the troubled youth Jimmy opposite Dennis Farina. His next pivotal role came when William Friedkin cast him as a young pony-tailed tech in "Jade" (Paramount). Ron has since played an array of characters on film showing great range and versatility.
