The answer depends less on who he is and more on who you are.

Are you a child, or do you take one to movies sometimes? If so, you know actor Brian Tee as the iconic villain Shredder in the 2016 blockbuster "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows."

Are you a car movie fan? Then he's the also-villainous Drift King from 2006's "The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift," another big-budget smash.

The fact is, you could be just about anybody and know Tee. He's had roles in a pile of the biggest movies in recent years.

The parts haven't all been villainous, though he does tend in that direction. Some of his other big roles were the head of park security in 2015's "Jurassic World" and the corrupt Japanese Justice Minister Noburo in 2013's "The Wolverine."

You could know him even without being an action fan. He's done comedic roles in 2002's "Austin Powers in Goldmember" and 2005's "Fun with Dick and Jane," and even did a bit of a tearjerking turn in 2002's "We Were Soldiers."

You could, of course, also know him from "Chicago Fire" or "Chicago P.D." Tee's "Chicago Med" character has shown up on crossover episodes with those two sister shows.
