5. HE’S IN KUNG FU HUSTLE!

Kung Fu Hustle

There are a lot of bizarre film roles in this world but it’s hard not to pay attention to a guy that has ‘Crocodile Gang Boss’ on his CV. Feng took the part in Stephen Chow’s comedy Kung Fu Hustle as a favour to his director friend on the promise that it be returned in kind. Feng’s on screen turn in one of the country’s most popular film exports highlights another side to his persona. As well as directing and acting, Feng pens scripts and produces films in his spare time. If that, or his gun-toting talents in Kung Fu Hustle fail to sway you, you can’t deny that having Stephen Chow indebted to you is pretty impressive.

The BFI’s A Century Of Chinese Cinema starts in June.
