Huang Xiaoming And Chen Kun Likely To Cast In Transformers 4

Huang-Xiaoming-Chen-Kun-Transformers-4-China

Previously, we told you about Transformers 4 Filming at Sham Shui Po. On that article a name of a new Chinese actor was mentioned. That was Huang Xiaoming.

Today, Asian Pop News is reporting a second name along with Huang Xiaoming; that is award winning Chinese actor and singer Chen Kun.

We do not know if they will indeed get a chance to be in the the next installment of the Transformers Live Action Movie Series, but the chances are a bit high judging by the celebrity status of the Chinese actors mentioned above.

Another name dropped is Tong Dawei.

    This sounds a lot like Rain's casting in SPEED RACER and/or Tadanobu Asano's casting in BATTLESHIP. Hope it's a big break for these guys.

    You mean the Russians?
    "Das vidanya. That means goodbye!"

    Cause that was quite good, if rather stereotypical...

    Maybe these fellows will get major roles? It's likely seeing how China's very eager to work with many movie studios nowadays.

    Given Bay's track record, I doubt any Chinese actor will be given any major roles in the film that aren't stereotypical and/or stupid (looking at you, Ken Jeong). I'm hoping Hasbro is leaning on him to open up some roles for more minority faces (given the huge and largely untapped potential of a movie-going and toy-buying fan base in China, Asia, and abroad) but I'm not overly optimistic of those chances. But this particular actor seems to be of the pretty-boy variety, so that's a good sign, I think?

    I think they're making two version of Transformers 4. A US version and a Chinese Version. I heard they did something similar with Iron Man 3. Like there are select scenes you will only see in the Chinese release of the movie.
