Movie star Nicolas Cage has taken aim at Hollywood's top executives in a new TV interview, accusing them of ignoring Asian talent.

The Con Air star sat down with Chinese state broadcaster CCTV to talk about his new movie Outcast, which is a joint U.S. and China production, and he used his airtime to praise the continent's top film stars, calling on Tinseltown's studio bosses to use them more in mainstream films.

Gong Li Wants To Make More Hollywood Films

April 9th, 2007 8:52am EDT
Gong Li
Gong Li is focusing on developing her career in Hollywood, after complaining directors in her native China take too long to make a movie. Li was advised by director ex-lover Zhang Ziyou to stick to Chinese movies, but the stunning actress prefers the fast-paced Western film industry.

She says, "There are more opportunities for me in the West. Every few days, someone will send me a script or talk to me about a new movie. The new Chinese directors work more slowly than Western directors. It takes them longer to set up their movies."

Gong Li Chastised For Wearing Fur

Gong Li
Chinese actress Gong Li has been heavily criticized for her choice of fashion while lobbying for environmental protection - because she was wearing fur.

And now politicians and citizens of China alike are calling for her removal from the national body.

Plaintiff Zhou Xin says, "I want to warn Gong Li that if you are going to be a spokesperson for a cause, then you have to take on th...

China Bans 'Brokeback Mountain,' Okays 'Memoirs of a Geisha'

January 27th, 2006 12:52pm EST
Jake Gyllenhaal stars in Brokeback Mountain
Gay cowboy romance Brokeback Mountain has been banned in mainland China after outraging censors there. The film shocked China's broadcast regulator the State Administration of Radio, Film & Television, as the nation still considers homosexuality a taboo subject. Director Ang Lee last week hailed Asia for having a more open-minded stance on sexuality - so the ban will be a blow to the Taiwanese film maker.

Meanwhile, sexual content in Memoirs of a Geisha, which stars Chinese stars Gong Li and Ziyi Zhang, also caused a stir. But distributor Columbia TriStar insists the movie will eventu...

'Memoirs of a Geisha' Director Defends Casting Choices

December 9th, 2005 10:43am EST
Memoirs of a Geisha
Memoirs of a Geisha director Rob Marshall has defended his decision to cast Chinese actors in place of Japanese ones - insisting they were employed for their talent, not where they come from. The American film-maker spoke out after being chastised by Chinese critics for appointing Chinese actresses Ziyi Zhang and Gong Li to play major roles in the adaptation of Arthur Golden's popular novel.

The critics insist Marshall's choice is insensitive because of the atrocities committed by the Japanese during their 1930s Chinese occupation. Marshall says, "When you saw Zorba the Greek, and yo...
