Daniel Radcliffe and Lizzie Caplan are set to star in the film "Now You See Me 2." There are several other name performers on board for this production. Now we find out that Taiwanese born Jay Chou is going to be a part of the film as well. A nice gig for this relatively young performer who fans know best for his work in 2011's "The Green Hornet."

"Now You See Me 2" is set for a 2016 release and is said to be an action/comedy/thriller. Jessie Eisenberg and Morgan Freeman were a part of the first "Now You See Me" when it was released in 2013. The film did fairly well at the box office and essentially lead us on to a sequel.

Chou is getting a nice break in America with this role. He has been in the busienss in a number of capacities for a few years now. He ahd his first acting role in a 2003 short film bfore landing a major role in a 2005 Asian flick titled "Initial D - Drift Racer."

Chou was recently seen in 2013's "The Rooftop" alongside Eric Tsang.
