Michael Tse Reveals Female Lead of New Laughing Gor Movie Still Undecided

Appearing as a guest on TVB executive, Fung Mei Gei (馮美基) and Margie Tsang’s (曾華倩) program, May’s Invitation <May姐有請>, Michael Tse (謝天華) revealed that he attended a costume fitting for the new “Laughing Gor” movie, Potential Criminals <潛罪犯> earlier.

Asked whether earlier rumors denoting that Miss Hong Kong 2011 winner, Rebecca Zhu (朱晨麗), will replace Fala Chen (陳法拉) as “Laughing So” and play the female lead in Potential Criminals, Michael revealed that the casting decisions were not finalized yet. Michael hoped that an actress with strong acting skills will be cast in the role, to increase the film quality of the production. Would this disqualify Rebecca Zhu from being cast as “Laughing So”? Michael laughed and said that perhaps Rebecca’s talent may be apparent in her first film, similar to what had occured in Cecilia Cheung’s (張柏芝) case.

    Blehs, so sick of Michael Tse. After that stupid, arrogant comment he made towards Steven Ma, I just can’t seem to like this guy anymore. 🙁

      ^_^ I hate him for being in the first movie (long time ago?). Very bad acting, although the movie was supported to be above Laughing Gor, I believed the movie would have been fine without him. I liked the one who always had cute girls surrounding him – he was the soul of that movie.

        I think Francis Ng was what made that movie worth it. Mostly due to the twist in his character near the end and his consistent solid performance. Anthony Wong is the one who was surrounded by all the pretty girls. I love him, but his silly wardrobes which got worse and worse towards the end, is what made me not able to take his character seriously. It’s one thing to be all emo, but he overdid it. However he still steals scenes whenever he’s on, and him and Francis are my favorites. I hope they can get him to be in this Laughing movie too since Francis is already confirmed <3

      I used to dislike him (won’t use the word “hate”) after he criticised SM for being “immature” but after weeks has passed, my disliking towards Michael has like subdued.. dunno why .. Probably I won’t hold my hatre toward anymore for long hehehe.

      As for the Laughing movie, I don’t think i’ll watch the movie not becuz of Michael..it’s just that I’ve lose appeal with Laughing Gor character. So overused and repetive

      I wonder what he will do after his Laughing Gor died. If TVB is going to make another Laughing sequel/movie, shame on TVB.

      The only series, I found this Tse acted good was Virtues of Harmony. All other series, he acts like “there is no tomorrow”,”life sucks”,”on the top of the world”, make me sick of seeing him. Look at the cooking series with Chilam, same way he acted in EU.

        He waited too long to be famous, so after EU, he is processed by Laughing.

Besides the movie…

        @Larry3: What? why does TVB making a Dr Laughing in a hosting job? I assume it is hosting and not a series. Why don’t use his real name and need to be ‘Dr Laughing’???

    I think they need a bigger name female too- someone with a little more experience and/or able to make the movie seem a little grander.

    I don’t watch that many Hong Kong movies but what are some big female names right now?

    Using rebeccazhu is convenient. She can remind laughing of fala in the movie thereby causing a romance and then she dies and in the next series she shall play a doppleganger just to show the audience how desperately needy tvb is of good scripts. In fact in the followup movie to that both fala and rebecca can star and this really confuses laughing so he really must choose who to be with. A true turning point. I have this laughing saga all mapped out. Tvb should really ask me for some advice. It woolf save them going to the local temple and asking some blind man after tossing a dozen coins and sticks over a bonfire.

    For TVB, it’s just now enough to squeeze out the last drop from an also-ran franchise, they have to put in through a wringing machine as well.

    Michael & this Laughing Gor’s character is totally losing it’s appeal. Dont like his atittude at all. Can TVB stop dumping him on us!!!! He cant act for nuts, always the same old expression!

    Agree with what Rox said earlier. Francis Ng & Anthony Wong are the ones that made the 1st movie works.

    If there are no good actors (not Mcheal Tse) like the first movie then it will be waste of time seeing this Sir Laughing using his same face expression as wel as same kind of actions again. He acts like he is Laughing Gor, not a character but a living being. Let the man die and create a new better one but TVB just cannot do that.

    I am sure that TVB knows if only Micheal is the makn lead if the movie without other famous actors, box office will be bad. Anyway, hope this time the box office is bad so TVB will not make another drama and another movie of. .this sh*t

    I knew that he was undercover in jail in the ending of LOM. What can “Laughing Gor” do except be an undercover over and over again. LOL
    Now “Laughing Gor” is doing “prison break” and goes onto the street to investigate again. If you read another article about the spoiler of the plot, there is really no need to watch this movie at all.
