His chinese name is Jin Cheng Wu. His father is a Japanese and his mother is Chinese with Taiwanese nationality so he enjoys dual citizenship. He can speak 5 languages: Mandarin, Japanese, Taiwanese, Cantonese and English.

I first saw him in a Jet Li movie, Dr. Wai and Scripture with No Words and recently in the WARLORDS, another Jet Li movie.

He is forever being rumoured to be gay but it does not stop the girls to fantasize about him.

You can catch him in his upcoming movies:

  • Onimusha (2009) as Samanosuke Akechi
  • Waiting (2009) as Kong Lin
  • K-20: The Fiend With Twenty Faces (2009)
  • The Battle of Red Cliff (2008) as Zhuge Liang
  • Sweet Rain (2008) as Jing Yip – The Death God

    You can’t believe anyone will do that, right? Every person in the moviemaking business dreams of being invited to that prestigious event. An invitation means either you are a presentor, performer or a nominee. So, who is this lunatic who rejects the chance to bring home an Oscar?

    Director Peter Chan.

    He’s the director of the latest Jet Li starrer, The Warlords, along with CantoPop King Andy Lau and Takeshi Kaneshiro. It is an epic film about the Qing Dynasty. Huge cast, amazing battle scenes, detailed costumes and a great storyline.

    Why the rejection? Simple reason that he wanted the film to be more known to the public when its released to the US by fall of next year thereby making it more popular and eligible for individual category nominations in the Academy Awards next year instead of rushing it for this year and be nominated only for the Best Foreign Film.

    He said he does not want to rob his cast of the chance of getting recognized by the Academy. A great risk and unselfish move by the director and just in case he didnt get notice next year, he will always have the satisfaction in knowing that the Academy already recognized his efforts.

    The $40 million movie is expected to break box office records in Asia and and make a significant mark on the U.S market as well. I don’t doubt that at all, JET LI never fails to deliver. I can’t wait to see it.
