Chow Yun-Fat Wants To Be A Hollywood Leading Man
But despite his impressive resume and good looks, the 51-year-old is adamant his progress in Hollywood is being unfairly hindered by ethnic background.
He says, "Honestly, I prefer (to do) more dramas. In American society ... Asian actors are not accepted as leading men. Maybe we have to wait for a few more years."
Moviemaker Jeff Adachi, who has filmed a documentary on the subject, agrees, adding, "He has experienced a glass ceiling in Hollywood. The tragedy is that there are roles that should be offered to Asian leading men but people are not used to seeing that... so it's something that studios are not willing to invest in."
