He now is living in Krypton's lowest caste after his family was stripped of its rank." (Deadline.com)
MAN IN THE HIGH CASTLE, THE (Amazon) - Veteran character actor Tzi Ma will recur on the new season as General Onoda, "an intelligent, nuanced and excellent soldier from a working-class background.

He has a history with Trade Minister Tagomi and is depending on his support and connections." (Deadline.com)
RANCH, THE (Netflix) - Wilmer Valderrama will reunite with his "That '70s Show" co-stars Ashton Kutcher and Danny Masterson in a three-episode arc as Umberto, "a former ranch hand at the Iron River Ranch.

He recently decided to leave a job at a Montana ranch and move back to Garrison, where he toils at the My Little Pony Ranch." (EW.com)
