Dude, he doesn't look the slightest bit Asian, especially in those Ep21 flashbacks.
You know what would be cool? Getting George Takei to play the guy sitting next to Gendo in that pic, Jonathan Frakes as Gendo, and having some kind of weird Star Trek in-joke... that would be hella funny.

Ol' David is kind of the crazy, charismatic, fun-loving kind (the evil incarnation from "Future Tense" nonwithstanding -- that was just Puck frelling with Goliath's brain, anyhow) who enjoys creating temporal paradoxes, flying around in battle armor, and having karate matches with his half-fey wife, whereas Gendou is the dark, brooding, self-loathing sort with a weakness for green-eyed women and Mickey Mouse gloves who wouldn't think twice about turning everyone on Earth into Tang.
And Riker is the no-nonsense macho heroic type with a weakness for telepathic women who can play his instrument... er... you know what I mean. The point is, he's a versatile actor and one badass bad guy.
And for the record, Gendo DID have an objection to everyone on Earth turning into Tang. He wanted only himself and Unit 01 to turn into Tang, remember? "Death creates Nothing" and whatnot?
