Canada is getting its own version of the popular cooking competition series “Iron Chef.”

TALENT COMPENSATION: $1000 per episode with the option to negotiate.

MALE - ASIAN - 30-55 years of age. (Please note in submission if talent is Japanese, Chinese, Korean, etc.) The Chairman is the iconic role in the Iron Chef canon that through his charisma and theatricality, introduces the competing chefs and the episode's secret ingredient. The Chairman is bold, theatrical, powerful and perhaps a bit sexy. He is well rounded and is just as comfortable performing martial arts as he is holding court in kitchen stadium. The Chairman is also funny, so a background in comedy is a bonus, but not necessary. Background in improv, stage combat and live theatre are a bonus. Please indicate in your notes.
