First Look at Ryan Robbins as Raiden in the MORTAL KOMBAT Web Series

Lord Raiden, thunder god of the Mortal Kombat universe, is also the protector of Earthrealm and will play an important part in director Kevin Tancharoen's upcoming web-based series.

Kevin Tancharoen, who directed and produced the popular, unofficial Mortal Kombat: Rebirth fan short that garnered over 10 million views worldwide, is bringing the same gritty directing style to this live-action digital new media series. Fans will be able to delve deep into the history of the warriors they know and love including "Sub-Zero" and "Scorpion."

Shooting for Mortal Kombat is currently underway in Vancouver, with a cast consisting of Michael Jai White, Jeri Ryan, Ian Anthony Dale, Darren Shahlavi, Ryan Robbins, Matt Mullins, Tahmoh Penikett, Shane Warren Jones, Peter Shinkoda, Tracy Spiridakos and Beatrice King.

I'm taking a gamble on the name, the director only asked the question "Who do you think this is?" But after searching through the cast list the facial structure only matches Robbins:

I get the feeling that Raiden spent some time in an asylum.
