Ruy Iskandar to Reportedly Play Lieutenant Jee in Netflix's 'Avatar: The Last Airbender' Live-Action Adaptation

Paul Sun-Hyung Lee, the actor that will be bringing Uncle Iroh to life, shared a photo after a "tough work week" alongside Dallas Liu, who will be playing the role of Prince Zuko, along with Ruy Iskandar, who will apparently be bringing to life the Fire Nation lieutenant known as Jee:

Netflix has yet to reveal when exactly we can expect their take on the world of element bending to arrive on its streaming service.
