Masayori "Masi" Oka (岡 政偉, Oka Masayori) (born December 27, 1974) is a Japanese-American actor and digital effects artist. He became widely known for his role on NBC's Heroes as Hiro Nakamura.

Biography

Il quitte Tōkyō, sa ville natale, avec sa mère (ses parents ayant divorcé lorsqu'il n'avait qu'un mois) à l'âge de six ans pour rejoindre Los Angeles et la Californie.

En 1997, Masayori obtient son diplôme en informatique et mathématiques avec une spécialité effets spéciaux, à l'Université Brown. Il parle également couramment le japonais, l'anglais et l'allemand tout en s'exprimant très bien en espagnol.

Il a joué récemment dans la série Heroes où il interprète le personnage d'Hiro Nakamura. Il a aussi joué des petits rôles dans des films comme Polly et moi, Max la Menace ou Austin Powers ou encore Balles de feu. Il a travaillé dans le domaine des effets spéciaux dans des films comme La Guerre des mondes, Terminator 3, Hulk, Star Wars : épisode III - La Revanche des Sith ou Pirates des Caraïbes : Le Secret du coffre maudit.
De 2002 à 2004, dans la série Scrubs, il apparaît dans le rôle de Franklyn, le responsable du labo. Les fans de la série Joey l'auront aussi reconnu puisqu'il joue un ami de Michael lors de la saison 2. Il fait notamment une apparition dans Austin Powers dans Goldmember.

Ses passe-temps préférés sont le kendo, les jeux vidéo (il a d'ailleurs avoué avoir passé énormément d'heures à jouer à World of Warcraft), l'écriture et la lecture de comédies romantiques, jouer du piano et chanter. Il est également, comme dans la série Heroes, fan de Comics.

En 2008, la série Scrubs déménage de NBC à ABC. Dans le cadre de la huitième saison de la série, la production souhaitait réunir tous les acteurs ayant contribué à la série pour le final ; mais NBC interdit à Masi Oka de tourner cet épisode car il est sous contrat avec la chaîne.

La même année, il interprète l'un des deux rôles titre (Bruce) dans Get Smart's: Bruce and Lloyd Out of Control (Max la Menace : Bruce et Lloyd se déchaînent), spin-off de Max la Menace (l'histoire des 2 films se passe au même moment), film américain de Gil Junger sorti exclusivement en vidéo (Warner Premiere).

Maxwell "Max" Smart, an analyst for the top secret American intelligence agency, CONTROL, yearns to become a field agent like his idol, Agent 23. Despite top scores in the acceptance tests, Max is denied the promotion because the Chief of CONTROL feels that Max is too valuable as an analyst. Max goes for a walk, looking at Fang, a puppy in the pet store. A woman bumps into him. When CONTROL headquarters is attacked by the terrorist organization KAOS, almost all of CONTROL's agents' identities are exposed, leaving only Agent 99, the woman Max bumped into as a viable field operative, while the others are demoted to desk jobs. Max is therefore promoted to field agent as Agent 86, but the experienced 99 is reluctant to partner with him because of his penchant for clumsiness.
