Takeda Guest Stars in new AMC Series

TV/Film actor Scott Takeda just booked a guest starring role on a new AMC series called “Halt and Catch Fire.” The series is produced by AMC Studios and follows the personal computing boom in the early 1980’s through the eyes of a visionary, an engineer, and a prodigy. The lives of this mismatched trio are challenged personally and professionally as their innovations confront the corporate giants of the time.

The 10-episode series is created by Chris Cantwell and Chris Rogers and executive produced by showrunner Jonathan Lisco (‘Southland’) and Grand Via Productions’ Mark Johnson (‘Breaking Bad’ & ‘Rain Man’) and Melissa Bernstein (‘Breaking Bad’ & ‘Rectify’).

The show premiers June 1. Takeda guest stars in the fifth episode as Hirohiko Taketa.
