After making his vivacious and commanding comeback to the entertainment arena, Academy Award-winner Ke Huy Quan has proven he is here to stay.
He recently returned to acting full time in 2022, starring alongside Michelle Yeoh, Jamie Lee Curtis, and Stephanie Hsu as the supporting role in A24’s critically-acclaimed and award winning cultural phenomenon EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE. Directed and written by Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan, the film centers on an aging Chinese immigrant (Michelle Yeoh) who is swept up in an insane adventure, where she alone can save what’s important to her by connecting with the lives she could have led in other universes. Quan plays Yeoh’s distanced, yet undeniably good-hearted husband, “Waymond”. EVERYTHING EVERYWHERE ALL AT ONCE made history as A24’s highest grossing film of all time, crossing $100 million at the global box office. Quan has made an astounding impact on the awards landscape on behalf of his performance. This performance has garnered Ke an Academy Award, Golden Globe Award, Critics Choice Film Award, Screen Actors Guild Award, Independent Spirit Award, Hollywood Critics Association Award and the Gotham Award for Outstanding Supporting Performance. The film was the most decorated film at the 95th Oscars, with a staggering eleven nominations and seven wins, including Best Picture.
On the feature front, Quan will next be seen in the Russo Brothers’ THE ELECTRIC STATE for Netflix, based on the popular graphic novel of the same name and starring alongside Chris Pratt, Stanley Tucci, Billy Bob Thornton, and Giancarlo Esposito, among others. The film follows an orphaned teenager, played by Millie Bobby Brown, as she traverses the American West with a sweet but mysterious robot and an eccentric drifter in search of her younger brother.
