With Len Wiseman's remake of Total Recall gearing up to start production early next month, casting news has been arriving in bunches. Yesterday alone it was confirmed that Jessica Biel and Kate Beckinsale have joined the film as the two principal female characters while Bill Nighy will be playing Quatto, the resistance leader. But just like in the Paul Verhoven film, however, somebody has to mess with Douglas Quaid's (Colin Farrell) brain and convince him that he's a spy, right? Enter today's news.

According to EW, John Cho has officially joined the cast of Total Recall. Taking over the part played by Ray Baker in the 1990 film, the actor will play McClane, a "smooth-talking rep" who works for the company that implants memories (the article doesn't mention if the company is still called Rekall). No longer set on Mars, the new film will be set in the future where the world has been divided into two nationstates: Euromerica and New Shanghai. Also in the cast is Bryan Cranston, who will play an villainous dictator named Cohaagen.

I actually really like this casting. It's a small role, but Cho can really turn on the charm when he wants to and have a touch of slimeball (I keep thinking about the episode of How I Met Your Mother in which he guest starred as a smiling-yet-evil corporate executive). I guess he needs something to do while he waits to play Mr. Sulu again.
