Randall Park discusses his involvement with Marvel’s WandaVision.

Randall Park is opening up about reprising his role as Jimmy Woo in WandaVision. During a newly released BUILD Series interview, the Marvel star recounted how he came to be involved with the Disney Plus limited series. Apparently, it only took one meeting with Marvel Studios to set things in motion:

"“I had a meeting over at Marvel, just a kind of general thing to talk about where I was at and where they’re at I was like, ‘Yeah, I would love to bring Jimmy Woo back if there was ever the opportunity.’ And then like a week later they were like, ‘Hey, come back, we want to talk to you about this show.’ And I was like, ‘Great.'”"

WandaVision is primed to be one of the trippier projects to come out of the Marvel Cinematic Universe and will pay tribute to various sitcoms. Even Vision actor Paul Bettany could only refer to the show as “bonkers.” Park also believes it to be an “an out-there show” and is excited to be involved. At the time of the BUILD interview, the actor was headed to Atlanta to do a table read with some of his castmates:

"“I’m going to Atlanta tomorrow to do a table read with some of the cast. I can’t say too much, but it is an amazing show and it’s very different.”"

Park’s Jimmy Woo debuted in 2018’s Ant-Man and the Wasp as an FBI agent tasked with handling Scott Lang’s parole. A competent and friendly agent, Woo was ultimately unable to catch Lang in the act of violating his parole. Given the brevity of his role, it was somewhat surprising when Park was announced to be returning for WandaVision.

Woo’s inclusion is just one of the many questions that still surround the project. The recent teaser depicts Wanda Maximoff and Vision in a series of scenes inspired by different eras of television. It’s unclear if Woo will pop up during these sequences or the scenes that appear to be set in the present. Set photos have revealed that the SWORD organization will have a presence on the show, so there’s a chance that this is what draws the government agent into the story.
