As fans watch the new Quantum Leap, it's time to get to know the cast of NBC's latest time-travel series. So, who is Raymond Lee, who plays Dr. Ben Song, and why does he look so familiar? Well, it's likely because Lee's been in a wide range of high-profile, film, TV, and stage projects since his career began. Here are the highlights of Lee's career before Quantum Leap.
His life took him across the country at a young age.
Lee was born in New York City but has spent a majority of his life in Los Angeles, even attending California State University, Long Beach, where he sharpened his acting skills. He currently lives in L.A.
His theater credits are impressive.
Per his NBC bio, his theater credits include world-premiere productions of Vietgone at Manhattan Theatre Club. (He was given the Theatre World Award for Outstanding Off-Broadway Debut for this production.) He also performed in Office Hour, opposite Sandra Oh, and Cambodian Rock Band at the South Coast Repertory.
He's also been in some top-tier film and TV projects.
Most recently, Lee was a series regular in the AMC comedy series Kevin Can Go F**k Himself, where he played Sam.
You might also recognize him from his role in Top Gun: Maverick as Lieutenant Logan 'Yale' Lee.
His relationship with Quantum Leap goes way back.
"I remember distinctly in sixth grade, it was my best friend's favorite show, and I thought he was such an adult watching something like Quantum Leap," Lee told EW about how he discovered the original Quantum Leap. "By watching with my friend, I became a fan."
