Lewis Tan is Kung Jin in New Webseries Photo

New character Kung Jin will make the leap from video game to live-action series when actor/model Lewis Tan debuts in Mortal Kombat X. The actor confirmed his role via Instagram, sharing a new photo in costume as the thief turned Shaolin Monk. It confirms popular speculation about his role sparked by previous photos.

Mortal Kombat Online recently confirmed the completion of what will be the third webseries, once released. Tan calls the project "Mortal Kombat X". An official release date is still unknown.

A reported casting call revealed unconfirmed details of the role, describing the character in terms relevant to the games incarnation. Kung Jin is a cousin of legendary fallen hero Kung Lao, who turns to a life of thievery, before a pivotal encounter with Raiden restores him to the hero's path.

A filming call sheet from the series confirms the presence of other new characters from Mortal Kombat X [full story], appearing opposite returning star Casper Van Dien as Johnny Cage. Van Dien -- who joined the web cast in Mortal Kombat: Legacy II -- recently shared photos with original big screen Johnny Cage Linden Ashby [full story].

August coincides with the twentieth anniversary of Mortal Kombat's first foray into live-action adaptation. Mortal Kombat: The Movie debuted in theatres in 1995. Directed by British up-and-comer Paul W. Anderson, the film went on to achieve massive success, and remains an exception to gaming's difficulties in Hollywood. The timing may not be a coincidence.

is this for the movie that's being made or the web series? If it's the movie i was hoping for some mkx characters to be in the mix. It'd be hype as hell to see Kotal Kahn performing some open heart surgery on the big screen.

Curious about the series, hope we see it soon...

Also, how about they model Kung Jin to look a bit more like this in the next game.

He looks gay enough to play Kung Jin

Damn, son. You gentlemen lucked out.

Having defeated her opponents, CaTigeReptile was granted full access to the sorcerer's cookbooks. There, she succeeded in discovering the sequence of ingredients necessary to satisfy her hunger with delicious results. Have a nice day.

The in-game Kung Jin looks too anime. I hope Lewis Tan can make the character likeable enough that Jin will take after his (Tan's) appearance. This did happen with Kano and also introduced a primary power couple to the series (Kitana x Liu Kang, arguably Sonya x Johnny)

Seems legit. Facial hair reminds me of Kai, whose noble thief(wise street badass story he inherited.
