Web series Mortal Kombat: Rebirth gained a new addition to its cast: Tahmoh Penikett. The actor is most notable for his role as Helo on the critically acclaimed series Battlestar Galactica. Penikett will portray police officer Kurtis Stryker, who weilds nightsticks and tasers. Stryker was a leader of the Riot Control Birgade during Outworld’s invasion.

Michael Jai White’s involvement was enough to make the online series badass, but the inclusion of Penikett amplifies it. He was captivating as the headstrong Helo in Battlestar, which will fit perfectly in his role as Kurtis Stryker.
