Roger Kwok to Portray a Scumbag Lawyer in “Arrogant Man of Justice”
New TVB legal drama, Arrogant Man of Justice <法網囂雄>, will begin production this November. Produced by Tiger Cubs <飛虎> producer, Lam Chi Wah (林志華), the new legal drama will star Roger Kwok (郭晉安), Johnson Li (李思捷), Raymond Cho (曹永廉), Sharon Chan (陳敏之), Selena Li(李詩韻), and Joyce Tang (滕麗名).
Roger Kwok will star as the titular character – an arrogant lawyer with a cool attitude. Although this will be Roger’s first time to portray a lawyer, Roger said he is prepared for the challenge, explaining that he has received enough script-reading training for the filming of costume comedy, Queens of Hearts and Diamonds <東西宮略>.
Roger revealed that he was initially afraid to get assigned in portraying lawyer characters due to their long-winding, court dialogue. However, Roger has found some confidence after filming Queens of Hearts and Diamonds last year.
The actor confidently said, “Luckily, I have good memory. Everything is digital nowadays, so even I do mess up on a line, the editors can easily fix that. I got a lot of practice from Queens of Heart and Diamonds, so if I could handle the ancient dialogue, I should not have much of a problem this time around.”
Roger spilled on some information regarding his character in the drama. He expressed that he plans to use a lighthearted style to portray his role, and described his role to be “melancholic, urban, and cool.” His role has a very peculiar style of talking, in which there will be a short delay after he speaks. He explained, “After my character finishes a phrase, he will think for a while before saying the second. He’s a bit antisocial and keeps distance from the people around him. He’s a scumbag and can get people feeling very ashamed.”
Roger also hopes that the filming of Arrogant Man of Justice will be on schedule, because he plans to spend time with his family for Christmas.
