Roger Kwok Embraces Evil Role in “The Good and the Bad”

Roger Kwok (郭晉安) has proudly declared that his character in upcoming thriller The Good and the Bad <忠奸人> can be considered an “upgrade”, and sees it as his most evil portrayal yet.

Although mostly known for his righteous and happy-go-lucky roles, Roger has always wanted to play the bad guy. Due to the popularity of the character Ah Wong in TVB’s Square Pegs <戇夫成龍>, many thought Roger would be forever typecast and unlikely to be convincing in any other capacity.

Roger has definitely proved them wrong. His memorable performance in 2008’s Last One Standing <與敵同行> defied any preconceptions and showcased his ability to transform into the perfect villain. His realistic portrayal even caused viewers to scold him on the streets. Even though fans are happy to see Roger as an antagonist, TVB was hesitant to deviate from its proven formula and continued to restrict him to lighthearted dramas and comedies.

Luckily, he is finally given a chance this year to challenge another evil role. As a maimed lawyer in The Good and the Bad, Roger must communicate his character’s thoughts and secrets while bound to a wheelchair. To ensure an accurate portrayal, Roger had taken up wheelchair lessons to study proper maneuvers.

On November 13, Roger and co-star Kristal Tin (田蕊妮) were on set to film one of the final scenes for the series. In the scene, Roger was being hunted by hired guns. An anxious Kristal chased after him, only to find him slumped in his wheelchair, his shirt drenched in blood.

To keep the ending a mystery, the production crew was careful not to reveal Roger’s fate in front of curious public eyes. Although there is yet a firm release date, The Good and the Bad was recently shown as a part of TVB’s 2014 Sales Presentation and is likely to air sometime next year.

    He was so awesome in Last One Standing! I really didn’t like him that much until I saw that series. If he says he is more evil in this series, I can’t wait to watch it.

    He is definitely a movie quality actor when he does serious stuff, I wish TVB would let him out to “play” more often. His talent seems so wasted on comedic stuff, even though he is good at it.

    I really wish they would do a LOS sequel, but I’m afraid they would mess it up. But seriously so many possibilities with that ending.

    FINALLY! Roger in another ‘serious’ role, which means a ‘must-watch’ for me. I agree that TVB has been wasting his talent all these years by restricting him to mostly comedic roles because even though he’s good at those roles, where he TRULY excels are in those serious roles that require alot of meticulous and inner emotion acting. Though I enjoy most of his series (mostly because I love Roger overall, lol), I feel that TVB has been doing a poor job with his career direction in recent years (which isn’t surprising, since that’s the way TVB operates) and has been wasting his time with petty, forgettable roles. In comparisons, his roles in the pre-Ah Wong days were alot more memorable in my opinion (with a few exceptions of course)….

      You said exactly everything I wanted to say. I agree that Roger is fine as a comedic actor, but after Square Pegs all his other roles were a waste of his true talents. I enjoy his serious roles much more than his comedy roles.
