RED 5 STUDIOS BRINGS FIREFALL HEROES TO LIFE
Lee ÂHawkÂ Reherman of American Gladiators to Play ÂTyphonÂ
Laguna Hills, CA Â January 6, 2012 Â Red 5 StudiosÂ announces it has cast Lee ÂHawkÂ Reherman to take on the role of FirefallÂs hardened war hero, ÂTyphonÂ, at future events. Red 5 is unveiling Lee, and Crystal Graziano Â recently chosen to play ÂMourningstarÂ Â in their newly completed ÂbattleframesÂ with a new trailer at: http://bitly.com/ffcosplay2. Both battleframes were hand-crafted by award-winning Hollywood FX artist, Steve Wang, and his team.
Most well-known as ÂHawkÂ on American Gladiators, Lee Reherman also hosted five seasons of "Arena" on G4 and has played multiple wacky characters on the Disney Channel. His vibrant personality, athleticism, and remarkable likeness to Typhon, made him the perfect fit to play the Firefall character. Red 5 plans to bring Lee, as Typhon, to at least six conventions during 2012, as well as feature him in a yet unannounced project aimed at bringing FirefallÂs rich sci-fi universe to life.

TheyÂll be wearing some of the most realistic costumes ever constructed, made possible by the unique talents of Steve Wang.
