Star Wars Actor Confirms MKX Webseries Role

If you weren't distracted by holiday cheer in December, you may have noticed actor Ray Park confirming a role in this year's Mortal Kombat webseries!

The Scottish born martial arts actor has played starring parts in X-Men, G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra and The King of Fighters, but is best remembered for his portrayal of dual lightsaber wielding Sith Lord Darth Maul in Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace.

According to tweets to fans, he donned the hat and twin pistols of sensational Mortal Kombat X newcomer Erron Black for this year's live-action webseries!

Live-Action Webseries Scheduled for Release Early 2016

It was first announced late in 2014, and confirmed completed this past August. Now, according to director Garrett Warren, the third Mortal Kombat live-action webseries finally has a release schedule for early 2016!

Speaking to a fan on Twitter, Garrett said, "It is scheduled to be released early next year." Adding in reply to another fan, "I have been told that it will be released early next year."

Given the bumpy ride to completion the third series has appeared to have, it's understandable that this isn't the most convincing of confirmations. Two previous series, directed by Kevin Tancharoen, were noted for their low budget, and fast shooting to release schedule.

An early 2016 release positions the series -- rumoured to be called Mortal Kombat: Generations -- somewhere opposite downloadable content extras released as Kombat Pack 2. The pack introduces Bo' Rai Cho to the Mortal Kombat X playable roster: a character believed to have a prominent role in episodes starring Lewis Tan as Kung Jin [read more].
