I think Eason Chan is one of the most underrated actors working in Hong Kong. Perhaps the lack of recognition comes from the fact that he doesn’t look like your traditional leading man and has a very understated acting style.
There’s an ease to him when he’s onscreen, making him instantly likable even if his character is a douchebag (Dream Home). I recently saw him in Patrick Kong’s better than average made for China fluff Mr. and Mrs. Single and he was great in it, even though his voice was dubbed over and he was constantly wearing these goofy Lacoste sweaters.
My personal favourite film of Eason’s is Love Battlefield. Like its main character, the film is funny, unpredictable and surprisingly moving.
Now, about the hair…
