Was re-watching Legend of Korra (judge all you want, it’s fantastic), and HOLY CRAP HENRY ROLLINS IS ZAHEER.

After that little surprise I decided to go on IMDB and see what other surprises might be in there. Here’s what I found:

J.K. Simmons (known for playing J Jonah Jameson in Spider-Man) played Tenzin

Mindy Sterling (Frau Farbissina in the Austin Powers trilogy) played Lin Beifong

Anne Heche played Suyin Beifong

Zelda Williams (Robin Williams’ daughter) played Kuvira

Daniel Dae Kim (Jin Kwon in Lost / Chin Ho in Hawaii 5-0) played Hiroshi Sato

Bruce Davison (Senator Kelly in X-Men, along with over 200 other roles) played Lord Zuko


Eva Marie Saint (the female lead in Hitchcock’s North By Northwest!!! Talk about a legend!) played Katara

And the last surprise, Serena Williams had a cameo as a sage. Neat!
