Tony Leung Chiu Wai

Do you look like Tony Leung?  Ha, you only wish.  Well, in case you do, a recent casting call for a commercial is looking for someone who can be a younger Leung.  A notice posted on L.A. Casting seeks someone with the suave young Tony Leung look — just not sure which one, as there are two: Tony Leung Ka Fai and Tony Leung Chiu Wai.  Check out L.A. casting for details — there may be a commercial in your future.  They’re looking for actors taller than 5’10”, though heights found for each actual Tony top out at 5-7.5”.

Well, at least we’re not dealing with the Honda commercial casting notice that states

“WE’RE LOOKING FOR PEOPLE THAT PROJECT A UNIQUE PERSONALITY, CHARACTERS MORE THAN GOOD-LOOKING INDIVIDUALS. PEOPLE WITH UNIQUE FEATURES OR STYLE THAT CAN CONVEY EMOTION. THEY SHOULD NOT HAVE A DISTINCT ETHNIC LOOK (NON-CAUCASIAN, NON-HISPANIC, NON-ASIAN, NON-AFRICAN). WE NEED PEOPLE THAT COULD BE FROM ANY COUNTRY.”

Interestingly, a later call came in for background Chinese Dragon parade performers from another agency for a Honda commercial.  Hmm.
