Edwin Luke

I just found this board today, so this subject has probably been discussed before, but here goes: why does Keye Luke's brother Edwin, appear in THE JADE MASK? In searching for info about him, it seems he only made this one film. He didn't strike me as much of an actor either. Was he chosen as a fill-in bridge between Victor Sen Young and Benson Fong? If so, why a non-actor?

Re: Edwin Luke

He doesn't strike a lot of us as an actor!!

I'm not sure anyone knows why they hired Edwin but, in my humble opinion, they may have brought him in as a novelty since he was Keye's brother.

It may also be because none of the other actors who on-screen off-springs (sorry, I couldn't resist!) were available.
