Why Edward Homm From Rabbit Hole Looks So Familiar

On Paramount+'s new series "Rabbit Hole," Rob Yang plays Edward Homm, a U.S. Treasury agent whose investigation into Arda Analytics for child labor violations kicks off the firsts season's intense plot line. John Weir (Kiefer Sutherland) is a corporate spy tasked by Arda Analytics with framing Homm for taking orders from their rival, The Baromar Group. John is charged with killing the agent as well. 

After the spy is framed for his murder, as well as the death of old friend Miles Valence (Jason Butler Harner), it's revealed he saved Homm's life. Homm then works with John to uncover the truth about Arda and how far the conspiracy to destroy Weir and the American government actually goes.

Yang has now racked up 68 screen credits since 2006 thanks to hit HBO series, Dick Wolf crime procedurals, thrillers, and more. Here's why the performer may look familiar to the viewing public.

He's another espionage target on The Americans

The actor quickly gathered screen credits because he didn't stop working, whether this meant 11 episodes as a background doctor on "One Life To Live" or a small recurring part on shows like "Bored to Death."

His first truly notable television role was on multiple episodes of "The Americans" Season 4 as Don Seong, one of the directors of a medical research group. Thanks to his access to life-threatening pathogens, the Korean immigrant is targeted by Elizabeth (Keri Russell) and William Crandall (Dylan Baker).

Elizabeth, playing "Patty," first befriends Young-Hee (Ruthie Ann Miles), Don's wife, then drugs Don and tells him they slept together. After a ruse involving a fake pregnancy and "Patty" committing suicide, Philip (Matthew Rhys), disguises as "John" and demands Don pay her supposed funeral expenses. When Don leaves to get them money, Gabriel (Frank Langella) and another agent get the codes.

This naturally destroys the guilt-ridden director and his marriage. When Elizabeth later returns to their house, she discovers no one is living there anymore.

Yang plays Lawrence Yee on Succession

Rob Yang started to land more featured roles in film and on television in the mid to late 2010s, including "New Girl" and "The Kitchen." Arguably, however, the actor's most famous role to date is his character on "Succession," the Vaulter CEO Lawrence Yee.

In the first episode of the HBO series, Lawrence is locked in negotiations with Kendall Roy (Jeremy Strong) to sell his media company, Vaulter, to Waystar Royco. Lawrence visibly despises the swaggering son and almost laughs when he calls him "bro." The owner does agree to the acquisition, but only after Kendall offers him a ridiculous deal.

Nevertheless, Kendall has the last laugh on Lawrence when he shuts his unprofitable venture down in Season 2. Lawrence is left standing there, horrified, after being told why. Yang appears on 20 episodes and is credited regular cast member, but his desperate yet contemptuous energy still leaves a strong impression.

The actor is Logan Kim on The Resident

As played by Rob Yang, Logan Kim appears on 13 episodes of "The Resident." Kim is introduced early in Season 3, and thanks to antagonist Barrett Cain (Morris Chestnut), is the new Vice President of Chastain's recent parent company, Red Rock Medical.

Where Cain does want to save the lives of his patients, Kim's approach to the hospital is cold-hearted and focused almost entirely on finance. He and Cain get Conrad Hawkins (Matt Czuchry) fired for whistleblowing, restart elective surgeries during the pandemic, and consider shutting down the OBGYN clinic to save costs.

Kim does have his good moments, such as securing personal protective equipment (PPE) for the staff using his connections in South Korea while risking his job to do so. Nevertheless, early in Season 4, Red Rock has a hearing about Kit Voss' (Jane Leeves) exposure to the virus and Kim's use of funds for PPE. 

Conrad is brutally honest with the board about both the businessman's morally dubious behavior, as well as how he helped ensure the staff's protection. Kim is fired, and he warns Conrad that things will get worse at Chastain before exiting the series for good.

Yang is a regular on American Rust

"American Rust" stars Jeff Daniels as a small town sheriff, Del Harris, investigating a body found in an abandoned steel mill. The prime suspect is former football star Billy Poe (Alex Neustaedter), the son of the woman he loves, Grace (Maura Tierney). Rob Yang plays the sheriff's deputy Steve Park, who appears on Season 1 and the upcoming second season.

Steve is a dedicated cop determined to figure out the central murder of fellow police officer Pete Novick (Jim True-Frost). Despite his friendly small-talk, the "by the book" officer doesn't connect easily with Del or other people. The character also has to deal with racist comments from Pete in the premiere episode.

Yang is more of a supporting player on the show, but he still tries to be ready when working with a pro like Daniels. 

"The Jeff Daniels test is basically be prepared," Yang said to CBS News. "When you show up, be prepared. If you are not, go home. There is really no excuse, and it is really fair enough."

He's a captive tech bro in The Menu

Last year, Rob Yang worked with another "Succession" production member, director Miles Mylod, on the delicious dark-comedy "The Menu." Part of an ensemble cast, Yang is Bryce, one of the wealthy and "lucky" guests at the exclusive restaurant Hawthorn. The tech owner and his business partners, Soren (Arturo Castro) and Dave (Mark St. Cyr), aren't aware that the chef, Julian Slowik (Ralph Fiennes), has no intention of letting them leave.

Like several of the other characters, Bryce is entitled, with the actor telling Red Carpet Revelations he's the type of man who assumes he's better than anyone else. Ultimately, like almost all the other guests, Bryce pays for his privilege by being turned into a s'more and set on fire in the ending of "The Menu."

Despite his character's snobbery, Yang found the experience of making the film refreshing and equalizing. The entire cast had to stand nearby or sit together at tables for the entire shoot, regardless of who they were and their role in the movie. 

"It felt like doing a play," Yang said. "It really did."
