Tokyo Vice - Rachel Keller Replacing Odessa Young


Rachel Keller (Dirty John) has been cast in a lead role opposite Ansel Elgort and Ken Watanabe in HBO Max’s upcoming drama series Tokyo Vice from executive produce Michael Mann, who is directing the pilot episode.

Keller will play Samantha. The role has been recast after Odessa Young, who originally was tapped for the part, pulled out due to scheduling conflicts. Such cast changes have become a regular occurrence as the coronavirus pandemic-related Hollywood shutdown has wrecked havoc on film and TV production schedules.

Tokyo Vice had just begun filming its first episode in Tokyo at the beginning of the year when the escalating coronavirus outbreak shut down production. The series now plans to restart shooting in late November.

Created and written by J.T. Rogers based on Jake Adelstein’s nonfiction book, Tokyo Vice is a firsthand account of a young American journalist (Elgort) working the Tokyo Metropolitan Police beat.
