    That is not what Hogun the Grim looks like! He needs his moustache, his hemelt, and his costume as it appears in the comics. This guy looked like a Samurai, in dress and hair style. He was also way too slight of build, and too short. I think Karl Urban is the right one to cast as Hogun, but if you want to stay with an Asian, then get Chow Yun Fat. He is much more imposing than this little dude.
