《少年四大名捕》 "The Four" Update III

《少年四大名捕》 Costume Fitting

Date: July 3, 2007

Producer: Lam Chi Wah
Attending Cast: Raymond Lam, Kenneth Ma, Sammul Chan, Kate Tsui, Selena Li, Halina Tam, Cilla Kung Sin Tung, Vivi Li Si Ting, Dominic Lam, Kristal Tin, Savio Tsang, Lau Kong, Law Lok Lam, Gordon Liu, Felix Lok, Suet Nei, Chung Wong, Sin Ho Ying, Joel Chan, Ram Chiang, Tong Chun Ming, and Wu Kei Fung.

Ron Ng will not be present at the costume fitting due to filming in Mainland China. Dominic Lam Ka Wah will play the master of the "Four Constables", Zhuge Shenhou (the role Joe Ma played in "Strike at Heart").

I'm guessing that the four female artistes that will be pairing up with the "Four Constables" will be:
Kate Tsui
Selena Li
Cilla Kung
Vivi Li


Cilla Kung Sin Tung
07/22/86
She appeared as a 'Young Beautiful Cooking Goddess' contestant in "Beautiful Cooking" on the last episode (before the finals) with Isabella Leong, Balia Chan, and Kenix Kwok. She was the one that "over-walked" during the catwalk. She is also one of the briefcase holders in HK's version of "Deal or No Deal".


Vivi Li Si Ting
?/?/87
She participated in 2006's Miss HK Pageant, but never made the top 16 contestants, thereby not even making it to the semi-finals. She later joined TVB's 21st Acting Class and is also presently one of the briefcase holders on "Deal of No Deal".

A Blast from the Past: The Four Heavenly Kings

「The Four Heavenly Kings」 were the new influence during the early '90s in HK's music industry. Andy Lau, Jacky Cheung, Leon Lai, and Aaron Kwok were, no doubt, the most favourite singers. According to seniority in the business, Andy was the first to enter of the four. Andy was enrolled in 1981's TVB 10th Acting Class, but it wasn't until 1985 that he first landed his first music contract. Jacky entered the music industry two years prior to Leon. Jacky was the National Singing Champion in 1984, whereas Leon was the second runner-up of TVB 5th New Talent Singing Awards in 1986. Out of the four, Aaron was the latest to rise. He first gained fame in Taiwan and later returned to HK to plant his footsteps.

Jacky is known for his vociferous singing talents, and Aaron is dubbed as "The Dancing King" for his onstage dancing displays. As for Andy and Leon, they both have the most formidable fan group. That is why, in the past, their fans had encountered conflicts while supporting their idols.

「The Four Heavenly Kings」 made the '90s a 'fiery red' decade in the music industry; however, the four of them actually resisted the title. Not only do the four of them triumph HK's music industry, they also have been making their marks in the movie industry by winning 'Best Actor' awards. With their fame and success, it is very difficult to find any other four (in today's HK entertainment business) to be in comparison. 「The Four Heavenly Kings」 is truly one of a kind.

「The Four Heavenly Kings」 Best Actor Awards
四大天王影帝命

劉德華是四大天王中,最早嘗到影帝滋味。他於2000年憑電影《暗戰》贏得第19屆電影金像獎「最佳男主角」,2004年更分別憑《大隻佬》及《無間道3 終極無間》贏得第23屆香港電影金像獎及第41屆金馬獎「最佳男主角」,圓了他一年內連奪港台兩大電影盛事影帝的心願。

2002年,張學友憑《男人四十》開齋,奪得第4屆印度新德里亞洲電影節「最佳男主角」,揚威海外。黎明亦於同年憑《三更》首度奪得金馬獎「最佳男主角」。

郭富城於2006年急起直追,於05年憑《三岔口》首度於金馬獎稱帝,06再度憑《父子》蟬聯金馬獎影帝。

"Difficult to Bring Up a Matter" - Bosco Wong

有口難言 《大話妹》 主題曲 - 黃宗澤

作曲/編曲: 葉肇中
填詞: 高皓正
監製: 鄧智偉

*(I need your love Fall in love
I need your love I believe your love)

你看我眼神 怕你看到皺紋
聽過我秘聞 那個願意走近
試過去愛人 我卻看似對牛奏琴 愛未發生
我說有愛神 我說愛會降臨
那怕要騙人 最怕沒法相襯
愛快要沸騰 怕你遠去我才騙人 為了一吻

#其實誰喜愛唸對白 來歷和身世若公開至算做合格 大概沒相戀的資格
誠實難保會被接納 如若能跟你抱擁不要怕狼來了 就怕未牽手己天黑

Repeat *

見你有理由 騙你也有理由
試轉轉鏡頭 這性格太罕有
愛到結尾 才會答應過你能帶頭 去為你守
愛那有理由 那會計較報酬
試過去挽留 結尾沒法補救
放棄再強求 這個世界有如鬥牛 別再追究

Repeat #

(是與非就由天抉擇 沒說謊為何自咒)

Repeat #***

Gallen Lo Returns to TVB

It was confirmed weeks ago that Gallen Lo will be returning to TVB in August to film 《當狗愛上貓》 "When a Dog Loves a Cat", alongside Myolie Wu, David Lui Fong, and Margie Tsang.

Gallen was originally supposed to film a China handover series with Amy Chan, but was somehow not negotiable, and that opened up a couple of months of free time for Gallen. With all the commotion about ATV trying to pursue most of TVB's top stars, such as Bobby Au Yeung, Gallen, Flora Chan, Kenix Kwok, Maggie Cheung, etc., TVB grabbed onto the chance to steal Gallen and asked him to film the new series in August. Rumours say Gallen still has owes TVB ten episodes; that is the reason why he agreed to film the series.

Personal Note: It has been four years now, but Gallen is finally going to return to his mother station, TVB. However, I can't see it being a great series. Gallen and Myolie don't look like a couple. Maybe it's because their brother-sister relationship in "Golden Faith" was too promising. I would prefer Gallen to pair up with Margie, but Lui Fong and Margie will be husband and wife in the show. Too bad that Flora is pregnant and Maggie is not in the series. Now that I would watch!

Shall We Talk: "Our Friends" - Al Wai

我們的老友記 艾威
alwai02

有一種演員,樣子不太討好,但會令觀眾留意看他做戲,師奶覺得他樣衰但又可愛的,早有已經走紅的許紹雄,今期有開始成名的艾威。

我們對他一無所知,熟口熟面但叫不出名,但他一出場,我們就認得他是渾身是戲的老友記。

情形就如皇后碼頭,幾條石屎柱,三塊大字橫牌,幾排石凳,其貌不揚,其實是我們的老友記,有港人集體回憶的一級文物。

《師奶兵團》助娥姐人氣上升,夫憑妻貴,她的衰老公也發圍了,過去兩星期,艾威做的訪問,數目比過去廿年加起來更多。

或許不習慣做專訪,他一時說不記得何年入行,一時說忘記自己幾多歲,喂,要不別走紅,在傳媒的大光燈底下,就要一切細說從頭,如他所說,像拍高清劇,面毛也要看得一清二楚呀。

藝名來自關海山

艾威原名徐威信,七九年加入無線,一直沿用真名,九十年代初拜關海山為師,才聽蝦叔指示改名艾威。

「他說徐威信不似戲行名字,你知他以前是唱大戲的。」

關海山好戲,但誓不在錄影廠教人做戲,艾威想偷師,常常陪他去九龍城吃火鍋,從中學了不少演戲心得。

「我們很投契,有時收工我等他,有時他等我,一起去宵夜,傾偈傾天光,我想捉住他『索料』嘛。有一日,他說:『斟杯酒,叫聲師傅啦。』就做了他徒弟。」

關海山從不收靚仔為徒,平生只收過兩個學生,一個是艾威,一個是吳孟達,蝦叔認為靚仔不懂得做戲,教也沒用。

「我和他合作最緊密的劇是《情濃大地》(九五年),演父子,他被我激死。」

現實中師徒情深,蝦叔愛喝酒,艾威奉陪到底。

「唔知邊個陪邊個,我都好鍾意飲酒,但我未見過他醉。」師傅0一年中風後行動不便,有一次,艾威和他去吃火鍋,之後大夥兒去尖沙咀唱卡拉OK,蝦叔好像不願回家,嚷籲也要去,艾威非常愛錫老人家,親自抬他落地庫去唱K。

去年蝦叔病逝,艾威有份扶靈,他說:「我幫他搞喪禮,幾搞_呀,我們帶了啤酒入靈堂,請嘉賓一齊飲,大家陪蝦叔飲最後一杯。」

關海山給他的遺訓只有三個字:「唔好做!」不是劈炮唔撈,而是不要造作,演戲要自然,發乎內心感情。

夠高被藝訓班取錄

當初還叫做徐威信時,他不曉得何謂演戲,入娛樂圈只因貪得意好玩。

他自小住旺角,樓下是荷李活戲院(現址為荷李活商業中心),落樓下看完李小龍,回家就玩自己打自己,或者用報紙摺枝茅,穿條泳褲扮泰山。

他中學讀民生書院,是學校話劇社社長。讀完中六,他同時報了浸會傳理系和無線訓練班,結果浸會了無音訊,無線在三千人中取錄了他。那年是第六屆,全班三十人,同學有湯鎮業、黃造時、李成昌(細契的賤男友)。

看艾威的少年舊相,也不算靚仔,他說自己被取錄是因為夠高。「我五呎十一,在街上很多人說:『原來你真人咁高,睇電視唔似喎。』當然啦,因為我時常站在主角後面。」

艾威懂得挖苦自己,即是性格樂觀,他苦苦思索,才想起入行後捱過什麼辛酸:在訓練班頭半年沒收入,他和羅慧娟的哥哥羅偉平是同學,兩個人想賺外快,去應徵賣雪糕,還要學搓雪糕,手也凍僵了。這種辛酸的確是小兒科。

畢業後簽約,他未夠十八歲,要母親代他簽名。他時常說不記得自己幾歲,其實有數得計,七九至八0年十八歲,今年四十五歲左右吧。

《大時代》的犧牲品

不明白為何大男人對年齡守口如瓶,他說,是因為受過教訓。

「《大時代》選角原本有我,演陶大宇的角色(丁蟹次子),原本順序鄭浩南做大仔、我第二、大宇第三、郭政鴻第四。當我知道有個這個角色,正!落重本買了 幾件花恤衫、去了一間很貴的髮型屋剪頭髮,怎知返到公司拍造型照,韋家輝才對我說:『對不起,角色換了。』因為鄭浩南辭演,換上邵仲衡,我和他年紀差不 多,所以把我換走。我即時由十八樓跌下來,自從那次,我從來不公開年紀。」

他沾沾自喜,畢業後第一部電視劇《四海一家》,演陳立品的孫仔,十八歲演十三歲少年。

問他現在最年輕可以演多大的角色,他說:「鬼佬看我很後生,前年在多倫多連賭場也不准我入,問我拿身份證來看,我非常樂意給他查。」

不知他講笑還是講真,總之,他喜歡和年輕人做老友。鍾嘉欣是他的契女,她要演蒲精,請艾威陪她去蘭桂坊做考察。

「她未去過蘭桂坊,講出來沒有人信;我未去過,就有人信。」實情是艾威廿多年前已蒲disco,喜歡自創猜枚玩法。陳山聰是他的時裝顧問,這天拍照的兩件衣服,來自銅鑼灣名店街,是陳山聰介紹他去買的。

而他頸上的蜜蠟鏈,是自己設計自己穿的,都幾貪靚。

做酒廊歌手月入過萬

艾威以前常出入夜店,拍劇之餘,做過兼職酒廊歌手。他在訓練班認識教唱歌的秦燕老師,透過她介紹去油尖旺的酒廊唱歌,初初替場,漸漸做了長駐。

「那時我住粉嶺,晚晚唱兩set,半夜三四點才回家,時間太趕所以推劇,算是不聽話,高層說我常常推booking,差點搞到要炒魷魚,要多謝蕭笙叔,他拍心口擔保我做夠騷,才有得續約,否則我現在就不會跟你做訪問了。」

那時他在無線月薪四千,在外面唱歌卻月入過萬,難怪他不認真做戲,他還經常到新加坡、台灣、大陸登台,飲歌是西城秀樹的《Laura》,唱得很激。

艾威在電影《彩雲曲》也演過酒廊歌手,他的歌藝行不行?他說:「我問秦燕老師,如果我參加新秀有沒有機會,她說一定入到三甲。我那時訓練班出來,和TVB簽了約,同馮美基講,她說不可以,要解約才可以參加,所以打消了念頭。」

他記得,那是張衛健得冠軍的一屆,後來,馮美基介紹他到唱片公司試音,鄧萃雯(艾威稱她為「大頭雯」)也有去,但兩人都沒機會出碟。

「因為沒有簽我們,那間唱片公司也執了。」他笑。

有一年,他到多倫多登台,同行還有張國榮。「我們一齊打麻將,又去尼亞加拉大瀑布玩。他送了副太陽鏡給我,我話幾正喎,他說:『鍾意就羅去囉。』」

後來張國榮大紅大紫,事隔多年,艾威有一次在國內遇到哥哥,問他:「你記不記得我?」對方竟帶點怪責口吻反問:「你點解咁問?」

艾威自問只是電視台一個不起眼的演員,張國榮的意思是:「你是不是想多了?你以為我是天王巨星,唔識你了?」他受寵若驚。

○二二二結婚

艾威常半真半假地說,忘記這樣忘記那樣,他之前做了幾個訪問,很多往事都不記得告訴記者,來到這個訪問,才慢慢記起,對之前幾個記者不公平云云。

「我們習慣性忘記東西,例如拍一場戲NG,一定要忘記第一take,才可以演好第二take,我們腦袋多了個洗帶功能。」

他十多年前和陳穎芝拍過拖,這件事他沒有忘記了。「她在無線演出過,我們那時認識的,拍了拖兩年左右啦。」

陳穎芝九二年拍了部《哎o也女朋友》,有性感演出,男主角是陶大宇。那時艾威已和她分了手。

「為什麼分手?我記得,但你寫性格不合算啦。」

他現在也有妻子,以前的戀情已不好意思一一細說。他的太太是圈外人,在製衣公司做管理階層,他們在0二年二月二日結婚,意頭好又易記,婚姻如意,暫時未有小孩,假如明年兩人工作不太忙,就會製造小生命。

收入主要靠投資

艾威廿七年沒離開過無線,只曾轉合約,因技術問題中間斷了七天。無線人工不高,他的收入來源主要靠投資。

訪問這天,他開兩座位平治而來,他說,現家住清水灣村屋,另外還有一部車。

「我的經濟狀況OK啦,上天對我不差,給我少少投資天分。投資牽涉賭博,我說出來好像鼓吹賭風,不想鼓勵別人炒股炒樓,費事了。好像蝦叔,他可能在拍戲 上的收入不高,但上天讓他在另一方面投資得到不少收入,他投資在馬會。當你擺心機演戲,做好自己工作,上天會轉個彎給你另一些報酬。」

他說,這廿多年來雖然不紅,但收入不差。初入行有唱歌幫補,沒唱歌之後,集中火力拍劇,爆騷爆得幾犀利;近十年鑽研投資,成了一個可以揀工作的籌碼,現在簽了關禮傑的經理人,希望有機會北上發展。

「生活一直很平穩,未試過要借貴利。」他說。

到目前為止,他最滿意的演出是《同撈同煲》扮石堅,戲分最滿意的是《情濃大地》,觀眾反應最滿意《師奶兵團》。

最為觀眾津津樂道的是,他演民初警察三六九的《大鬧廣昌隆》。「有一場戲,我被周海媚上身,跌落地暈了,一隻手打自己,然後用小芙蓉的情緒演,流了一滴不屬於自己的眼淚,很好玩。」

別人稱呼他綠葉,他不同意。「演員不應分綠葉還是牡丹,演員只分兩種,行運還是唔行運,有了《師奶兵團》,我和商天娥就是行運的演員。將我標籤為綠葉演員,做不到牡丹喎,就不公平了。如果一齣劇要個肥頭耷耳的演員做男主角,我就做牡丹,靚仔做綠葉囉。」

陰陽

alwai03alwai04

關於艾威這個名字,仍有一點故事。關海山當年要他改藝名,有一堆名字給他揀。

「我揀了艾威,因為我喜歡平衡,陰陽調和。艾字西化,威字中國化;艾字筆劃少,威字筆劃多;艾字柔,威字剛,我鍾意文武雙全中西合璧、crossover、mix and match。」

道理很好聽,但名字學上不知算不算好名,起碼他沒有因此而走紅,也沒有因此而黑過墨斗,也算另一種陰陽調和。正如他在開版照片中,背景是「Queen's Pier」,結尾就要「皇后碼頭」,也是中西合璧。

不過還是他夠幽默感,還是喜歡別人叫他威威。

「我到老,九十幾歲仍叫威威呀。」

Brief Summary:
Stage Name: Al Wai
Full Name: Tsui Wai Sun
He was only accepted into TVB's Acting Class because of his height (5'11"). He was a pupil of Kwan Hoi San. Kwan never accepted handsome actors as pupils because he believed handsome actors could not act no matter how much training they got. Kwan's only two pupils were Al Wai and Ng Mang Tat.

Al Wai was originally cast in "The Greed of Man" to play Michael Tao's character (Adam Cheng's second son). Originally, Mark Cheng Ho Nam was to play the oldest son, Al Wai the second son, Michael Tao the third son, and Derek Kwok the youngest son. However, on the day of costume fitting, the producer, Wai Ka Fai, told him the characters had been changed. Mark Cheng turned the series down and the character later went to Siu Chung Hang. Al Wai's age is similar to Siu's, so Al was kicked out of the show. Siu Chung Hang, Michael Tao, Ng Kai Ming (Lawrence Ng's older brother), and Derek Kwok were cast for the roles of Adam Cheng's sons.

Little did you know, Al Wai is a great singer. He originally wanted to try out for 1984's TVB's 3rd New Talent Singing Awards, but since he was signed under an acting contract, he would have to terminate his acting contract in order to participate. Dicky Cheung was the winner in 1984. Former TVB executive Fung Mei Kei told Al Wai to go and try out for the music company that signed Dicky. Al Wai revealed that Sheren Tang also went and tried out. Unfortunately, both of them did not have the chance to release albums. He laughed and said, "Obviously, that company closed down because they didn't sign the both of us".

Information not included in this interview:

He graduated from 1979 TVB's 8th Acting Class.
Classmates included Ken Tong, Liu Kai Chi, Chan Man Yee, Chan On Ying, Lee Sing Cheung, Ging Doi Yam, Chow Sau Lan, etc.

Shall We Talk: "Rather Sleep Later" - Julian Cheung

c02c03c04

別怪文章題目太口語化,這是借用張繼聰的歌名,說的是將為人父的心聲。張智霖比張繼聰早半年做了父親,也不願意太早睡,訪問前一晚,清晨四時才上殭,但他不是忙於半夜餵奶換尿片,而是捱通宵睇波。

張智霖是悠閒派父親,他不用湊BB,只需負責玩BB;偶爾放任一下,半夜不睡看足球,也是一盡做父親的責任。此話怎說?他想保持心境年輕,待兒子長大了,也不會變成「老」竇,可以帶他去睇波踢波,而不是排隊撲名校。

「太有紀律很悶蛋,我不可以這樣。」

他想別人怎樣對自己,也就怎樣對自己的兒子,自由放任,如果可以的話,寧願晏d[目訓] ,這是張智霖的做父親宗旨。

我的魔童

張智霖快要三十六歲了,介乎青年和中年之間,提醒自己不要太早老化,對他來說很重要。

說到底,他還有點大不透,兒子張慕童,名字是他改的,改名過程並無引經據典,而是一時靈感觸發的玩笑。

「先有Morton這個英文名,魔童呀。有一次見他換尿片,尿片邊有條帶顯示有沒有小便,他一換完,一會兒又屙,幫他再換一條,一換完又屙,見他笑o下 笑o下,我說‥『嘩,他是魔童,不如叫做Morton。』都幾好,和他開個玩笑,中文名是諧音,就係咁簡單,我改的。」

他希望兒子有幽默感,其實做父親的也要有,改名不用動輒「國、家、富、強」,叫孩子太沉重。

他不望子成龍,只寄予一個良好盼望,名字改好後,用張慕童之名捐了一筆錢給奧比斯,讓他一「出名」便做善事。

「希望他將來懂得服務人。」

袁詠儀懷孕期間,張智霖戒了煙,這天訪問,他又再吸了,記者陪他到室外抽煙,他邊走邊說‥「戒煙是一個療程,這個療程已經完結了,我拍戲有好多不滿時,食枝煙就不會和別人吵架。」

我的抑鬱

政府宣傳說「唔好輸俾枝煙」,他不是認輸,而是讓自己多一點率真。

「我盡量去學做一個好男人,不要說好男人那麼嚴重,一個男人囉,我不知,男人有的壞習慣,從不同角度看,也有它的可愛,sometimes,你話任性地 通宵睇場波,點知今日有訪問做,多少有點不對。但如果那麼disciplined又好悶蛋,唔得,我不可以這樣,會變成很沒童真。」

他暫時決定只生一個,無意再追,家中獨子會寂寞,所以他要身兼孩子的玩伴,不能沒童真。

「我不會做一個似爸爸的形象出來,我想跟他做交心的朋友,好過『敦』起個款,我和爸爸也是這樣,小時候他常帶我去踢波,我覺得好開心,我也會這樣做。」

差點忘了告訴大家,相約在張智霖家,一起看這場歐聯四強次回合,AC米蘭對曼聯的,正是老友郭富城,也是甚會保持童真的一個大男人。

他說,在家中他不用湊仔,因為請了陪月幫忙照顧孩子。「別人陪月陪一個月,我們陪了半年(兒子去年十一月出生),這個人我們不可以沒有,而且很需要。」

其實,Chi Lam和靚靚都不是捱苦捱大。袁詠儀對報紙說,餵人奶期間,辛苦得幾乎有抑鬱症,不知是否言過其實,張智霖心有不忿說‥「她怎會抑鬱?我抑鬱她也未抑鬱, 有時她不讓我出街,你明不明白?班朋友在外面打波,你想像他們很開心,自己卻坐在家裏陪太太兒子,很抑鬱的。」

我的太太

真的是童心未泯,他這樣稱讚自己的湊仔技巧‥「我識幫BB沖涼,很多人不懂,因為我小時候有養狗養貓的經驗,照顧這樣細小的動物我好叻,其實BB即是動物嘛。」

儘管洗澡換片瑣碎,他也盡量抽時間享受。「現在這個階段最寶貴,由咁細變成咁大,由無牙變成有牙,一年內變化很大,天翻地覆,看得幾多就看幾多吧,生命很奧妙。」

三年前跟他做訪問,他說人生是一幅砌圖,只欠生孩子這一塊,暗示結婚那一塊其實已砌上。當時他和袁詠儀已秘密在外地註冊,直至孩子出生後,才承認兩人早有名份。

「生孩子是在我們計劃之內,現在好像完成了一個mission,OK!搞掂!不是意外,一切都在掌握之中,我很幸運。為什麼計劃在去年生?我和阿靚同 年,我三十五歲了,她也是,男人七十歲還可以,好像何鴻燊,但女人不同,要在一個最好的時間做媽媽,遲些可能不夠好,有危險,我不可以那麼自私,只考慮自 己,我要為她籲想,做一個負責任的男人。」

談到袁詠儀,他終於說了點比較成熟的說話,到底男人要負雙重責任,講孩子經還可以扮大細路,談夫婦之道就要正經一點了。

我的靚車

「這幾年很多願望也實現了,有自己喜歡的工作,想有個baby,就有個baby,好像得到了很多,沒有什麼特別想做了。我對人生的要求很簡單,有些人要 賺幾多幾多錢,買一層怎樣怎樣的樓,但我這麼多年一直努力工作,基本上滿足到,但這不是終極的人生目標,不是說錢沒有用,但太多沒用,太多只是幫這個社會 保管住。」

外人替他數算,他生孩子時買了一部二百二十萬全球限量五十部的平治越野車,當時還嚷籲身邊有郭富城和沈嘉偉兩個車癡,是誤交損友,令他受不住引誘買貴車。在窮人眼中,這些說話或許是炫耀,富人沒資格說錢沒用,但他並非思想麻木,時常反省物質的意義。

「我發覺我不是很喜歡買車,車是消耗品,沒意思,我想買一架很便宜的車,開到_為止就算。第一香港車速有限制,買一架超級跑車沒有用,我擁有過好_,覺 得不外如是。我未擁有過靚車時好恨,要擁有過才敢講,我在那裏得不到快感。如果我未曾擁有過,說『得不到快感』,別人會問:『你擁有過咩?』我買過擁有 過,覺得不外如是,這句說話有ground,我看一部好電影的快感更大。」

我的電影

張智霖四年前簽王家衛的澤東,同門有梁朝偉、張震,都是影展紅地毯常客,只有他主力拍內地劇和港產片,他不覺得備受冷落,反而對電影愈來愈有熱誠。

「你要天下雨,也要有下雨的條件,如果自己未夠好,別人硬捧你上去,就沒意思,你一定要萬事俱備,才可以說一句只欠東風,假如你是堆砌出來的偶像,實在是弱不禁風的。

「是不是希望拍得獎戲?得獎不可以當成一個目標,演員都很被動,只可以要求自身做些什麼,你有沒有進步呢?對這個行業是不是仍然有熱情呢?求人不如求己,自己進步了,別人自然找你,別人不找你,是因為你不夠好。」

王家衛簽他,是因為欣賞他在《極度重犯》中的表現,剛入澤東,王大導要他看史提夫麥昆一九六五年的《龍蛇爭霸》做功課。

「過去幾年,他說我做戲好,不用給功課我做了。」他自詡近年看電影數量極多,有資格寫影評。

袁詠儀懷孕時,兩夫婦都沒放產假,太太去了泰國拍《門徒》,他則在香港拍羅志良導演的《綁架》,故事說他和劉若英的兒子被綁,離婚夫婦一起面對衝擊,因而又走在一起。

「拍這部戲時,太太剛生BB,會有共鳴,但就算沒有BB,我都會拍得好。現實中令我想,如果這個故事發生在自己身上,咁就大件事。最後我給自己一個結論,不會輪到我,我只是普通巿民,不是富豪富商,我仍很安全。」

他在戲中性格火爆,是粗人一個,他為了配合宣傳,留了兩天鬚根來拍照。雖然睡眠不足眼袋略大,但仍不脫唱《現代愛情故事》時期的青靚白淨。

我的世界

劉青雲未到他這把年紀時,演父親已有說服力,張智霖還要點時間去熬。香港演藝界多kidult,郭富城也要過了四十歲,才夠說服力演《父子》。老友當了影帝,張智霖並不羨慕,也不心急。

「男演員到了四十歲最好,味道才出來,經歷未夠,觀眾不信你可以做到戲中的角色。他拍《父子》,我們有brainstorm,傾o下怎演得好。我們是服務性行業,希望大家滿意服務質素啦。」

他說,做了父親原則上一切沒變,也不會減少北上拍戲。「我未是時候減產,趁現在狀態幾好要做多些,將來四、五十歲可能會累,我驚到時想做也沒得做。演員性質本身就是要你奔波,接到一部好戲,要你去非洲,難道你不去?」

他自覺唯一的改變是注重環保,用完電芯要想想怎樣丟棄,以前沒理那麼多,現在有了孩子,就想留個美好世界給他。袁詠儀到甘肅缺水地區,以自己和兒子名義捐錢建水窖,就是這個意思。

「希望到我不在這個世界時,我的下一代和再下一代,不會在這個環境受苦。」

張智霖說,他的朋友圈子愈來愈小。以前做歌手時,和草蜢玩到癲;拍《天地男兒》時,和伍詠薇未埋位前不斷講笑,埋了位又忍不住狂笑,NG十幾次。

「以前很多活動,唔知點解唱片行業日日有慶功,現在自己一來沒有唱歌,二來巿道不及以前蓬勃,人也疏離了。以前年輕,不顧一切地玩,現在不會像以前那麼盡興了。」

說的也是,草蜢之中三分二做了父親,人人都要為口奔波,有時間也要回家陪妻兒,哪有時間癲。

「成日話聯絡,最後都沒有聯絡,大家各有各忙。」

拍完《綁架》,他請了劉若英到家中吃飯,這種情況少之又少,只因對方和袁靚靚熟。和他最深交的,數來數去都是仍單身的郭富城。

「看書也是這樣說,男人過了三十歲,生活圈子收窄,以前食客三千,現在知己幾人。」

Personal Note: Chi Lam will soon be turning 36 in August, and he still looks like a little boy. During Anita's pregnancy, Chi Lam stopped smoking, but he was smoking during this interview. He explained, "Quitting smoking is like a treatment course and this treatment is already over. If there are things that I don't agree with when I'm filming a movie, smoking will take away the quarrelling with other people".

《少年四大名捕》 "The Four" Update I

Raymond Lam said in an interview earlier that he will be pairing up with Kate Tsui in July to film a series, thereby confirming that she will be in 《少年四大名捕》 "The Four Great Constables" and will be his partner.

There have also been rumours roaming around saying that Selena will be paired up with Ron. Also, some sources say that Shirley Yeung will be paired up with Kenneth, while Natalie Tong will be paired up with Sammul.

I'm pretty confident that this is the cast for the series. So much for TVB using female newbies for this series if all of this is true. Miss Lok is such a big liar!

《少年四大名捕》 "The Four"

Confirmed Cast:

Raymond Lam as 無情 Wu Qing (Mo Ching) - Emotionless
Kenneth Ma as 鐵手 Tie Shou (Tit Sau) - Iron Hand
Sammul Chan as 追命 Zhou Ming (Jui Ming) - Life Snatcher/Chasing Life
Ron Ng as 冷血 Leng Xue (Lang Huet) - Cold Blooded
Selena Li

Swordplay novels by Wen Ruian (溫瑞安), author of Strike at Heart, may be less popular than those by Jin Yong (金庸), but they are just as dynamic.

Plot:

Four of China's young and extremely skilled assassins/detectives are apprentices of Zhuge Shenhou - The Little Flower, who is the head bodyguard and advisor for the Emperor. Each possessing a special martial arts skill, the Emperor appoints them with the power to arrest and execute any corrupt officials or lawless criminals within the Chinese Empire. An ancient version crossover between "Detective Investigation Files" and "CSI". Very much anticipated!

Characters:

無情 Wu Qing (Mo Ching) - The Emotionless cripple is a wise master of concealed weapons and devices. He is the most intelligent of the four and appears to be the most ruthless; however, his innermost feelings are not heartless, as he is the easiest to be touched.

鐵手 Tie Shou (Tit Sau) - The Iron Hand is an honest character who possesses incredible internal palm strength that allows him to stop the sharpest blades with his bare hands. He is modest, kindhearted, and faithful to the one he loves.

追命 Zhou Ming (Jui Ming) - The Life Snatcher/Chasing Life is the playful alcoholic who is highly skilled in light-foot, granting him bold legwork and kicks.

冷血 Leng Xue (Lang Huet) - The Cold Blooded is a quiet character who was raised by wolves and can convert his pain into strength, thereby enabling him to to defeat opponents much stronger than himself. He also has the most outstanding swordsmanship.


Selena Li confirmed herself in her BBS forum and left the following messages to her fans:

Selena

Personal Note: TVB will be doing a young version of "The Four Great Constables". The series must be produced by Tommy Leung because all of his favourites are in it. TVB also said they were going to use female newbies for this series. That was a lie because Selena is now confirmed. They also said earlier that they were going to put Selena in more modern series because she filmed too many ancient series. That was also a lie! Ha ha ha.... I'm guessing that female newbies will probably either be from Miss HK or from the acting classes. My money is betting on Miss HK because TVB loves to promote its Miss HKs.

Edison Chen 《Let Me Re-introduce Myself》

Edison Chen first started to experiment in Cantonese hip hop in his last two albums, 《Please Steal This Album》 and 《Hazy: The 144 Hour Project》. After spending three years to prepare this new release, Edison has shown more improvement in his style of music. With ten brand new tracks, this new album is full of Edison's thoughts, and it completely exposes different sides of him.

His first single, "Remember Me?" 「記得我嗎」 (track 1), is written by Edison and Han Jin and arranged by DJ Tommy. To give the song more hip hop elements, the song uses Chinese instruments as an opening. That even makes it easier to listen to. The MV of "Impossible" 「不可能」 (track 10) was directed by youngen Chinese international director Vernie. In order to capture natural beauty of nature, the crew flew out to Africa to shoot the video.

Like many other hip hop artistes, most of the lyrics in the new album are used to promote himself and his fashion company, CLOT. From 2000's "EEG Edison" to today's youngest CEO in HK's entertainment industry, Edison has grown up to be an icon.

《Let Me Re-introduce Myself》 (HK Deluxe Edition) 《讓我再次介紹我自己》 (香港豪華版)

Track List:
01. 記得我嗎 Remember Me?
02. 拳頭 Fist
03. Act Like U Know
04. 精神分裂 Schizophrenia
05. 淚 Tears
06. 是我 It's Me
07. 凌晨1:37 1:37 AM
08. My Baby
09. 又一年 Another Year
10. 不可能 Impossible

My rating: 7/10
I personally liked the songs in this album better than his previous Cantonese album 《Hazy: The 144 Hour Project》. Firstly, Mandarin hip hop lyrics flow a lot better than Cantonese. Secondly, the lyrics are better because not every song is written by Edison. Lastly, the compositions are, like I said before, easier to listen to. One major flaw is that Edison needs to work on his Mandarin pronunciation.
