I Just voiced the character of the Puppet Master in the English version of China’s The Guardian Brother’s directed by Gary Wang. It is narrated by Meryl Streep and also stars Edward Norton, Mel Brooks, Nicole Kidman and Bella Thorne, among others. Plot: There’s a crisis in the Chinese Spirit World — humans don’t believe in gods anymore! A Door God, facing unemployment, ventures into the human world to prove his worth, leading to unexpected encounters and transformations for humans and spirits alike. It was a great privilege an honor to have a hand in sharing this wonderful Chinese story with international audiences. Should be out this summer, or, by Christmas 2017.
Summer’s going to be busy. I’ll be working on a theater production with the very cool Italian company Motus at La Mama Umbria in Italy.
It was such a great experience working with Sophia Coppola. She’s was genuinely caring in her direction of the actors. When one is directing a film, TV or commercial, there are a tons of technical demands – camera, sound, lighting – that need her focused and intense attention. But, she certainly took the time to hang with us. You can tell she was an actor. Thank you for being awesome Sophia!
It was a lot of fun working on SNAKEHEAD the Movie!
This was a passion project based on a true story. It’s not often one gets to work on a real story, one told from the heart. So proud to have been a part of this special film written and directed by Evan Jackson Leong.
