Good luck, Nick! Plus some shameless self promotion.

Charlene Choi has a little message for everyone:

“Yay, I’m on happy pills!”

Charlene is in a good mood, so we all should be too. The State demands it.

Kevin Ma of the Golden Rock pointed me in the direction of the following YouTube clip. It’s a RTHK (Hong Kong’s resident public broadcasting organization) segment about a young man from the U.K. named Nick, who decided to come to Hong Kong to break into the film industry. His inspiration: INFERNAL AFFAIRS, which he’s seen 30 times. You can watch the embedded segment below. It’s in Cantonese but Nick speaks mostly in English.

SHAMELESS SELF PROMOTION ALERT: Check out both the 2:40 and the 6:34 mark of the embedded RTHK video featuring Nick.

After viewing this segment, my respect for both Nick and RTHK just went up a few notches - all because of their choice of web destinations.

Seriously, I wish Nick the best of luck. The film biz is thankless and difficult, and not for anyone who thinks opportunities and acclaim should be handed to them on a silver platter. He seems humble and hardworking, and if he does make it I’m sure he’ll have earned it.

Good luck, Nick! If you’re reading this, contact me and I’ll buy you a drink someday. I would show you a location from INFERNAL AFFAIRS but I’m sure you’ve found them all.

Asian guys in Hollywood, or everyone gets to be a ninja

Yay, Asian actors are working in Hollywood! It’s so awesome that Snake Eyes wants to shoot someone.

Snake Eyes

Just a week ago, Korean actor Lee Byung-Hun made his Hollywood debut in G..I JOE: THE RISE OF COBRA. In celebration of Lee Byung-Hun - or LBH as we like to call him in these parts - joining an exclusive club including Ken Watanabe, Hiroyuki Sanada, Chow Yun-Fat, Donnie Yen, Jackie Chan, Jet Li, Daniel Henney, Rain and Park Jung-Hoon (You all saw THE TRUTH ABOUT CHARLIE, right?), I’m going to talk about G.I. JOE. Well, Lee Byung-Hun’s part in it anyway.

Jackie Chan supports Lee Byung-Hun:

“This guy makes an awesome ninja!”
