Die Neuesten Nachrichten: 5th April 2008
1. Cecilia Cheung carries baby to visit Nic Tse in Thailand – Chinese news source, here. (pic left)
Nicholas Tse is in Thailand to shoot “Feng Yun 2” (Wind Cloud 2, not sure what the English title is haha) and had not been expecting this surprise visit. One wonders if Nic Tse himself hadn’t been looking forward to some time alone, away from all that HK-scandal madness and then suddenly, wife and kid come tottering along, together with a whole troupe of paparazzi.
2. Takizawa Hideaki plays a female role in his upcoming “Takizawa Performance City 2008” -[滝沢演舞城 ０８] – Japanese news source- Daily Sports.
The details of his new project was announced officially yesterday. Although it is not his first time taking on a female role (he’d done this before in 2006), this time round will be the first time that he’s using white-makeup and portraying a 流女形 type of girl. Couldn’t find it in 3 dictionaries but from the Kanji (Chinese meaning) it seems like it could mean a “loose” girl? Either that or some free-spirited girl. Anyway, Takky said that the work was hard and he has to be careful when performing.
3. Rain beings international PR Tour for “Speed Racer” on May 8th – English news source : KBS Global World News
I feel like Rain got the bad end of the deal, from the article:
“Hollywood actors are promoting the movie on various talk shows [in the United States] but in Asia, no one is as popular as Rain so we are expecting a great response from his promotions of the film here,” announced a representative of Warner Brothers.
So like, his break into Hollywood ends up bringing him back to Asia, promoting a Western movie in which he plays a minimal role with minimal air time. He’s totally being controlled by western $$ to further their interests, without really doing much for his own. Plus it makes him open to all the ridicule that permeates the Kpop/K-drama audiences heaped upon all-those-people-who-wanna-break-into-Hollywood. Do it the Nino-way! Actually I don’t think Nino even cares about Hollywood… I don’t know. (For the record, I’m talking about Arashi’s Ninomiya Kazunari in Letters from Iwo-Jima – then again chances like these are few and far between.) Off to do my essay! *sian*
