Hello, Bejo

The Raid 2: Berandal

The chap with the scalpel is Bejo (Alex Abbad). “If I had to make a connection, he’s the Solozzo of The Raid,” says Evans. “He’s the guy who steps in and mixes shit up and causes a whole lot of trouble. He’s the catalyst for the all-out war that breaks out in the film.”
