If real life best friends for over twenty years Zhao Wei and Huang Xiaoming won’t ever marry each other, then at least they’ll always have matching side-by-side hand prints encased in concrete forever. Zhao Wei has been married for 5 years while Huang Xiaoming recently got hitched to now wifey Angelababy, which makes their upcoming first acting project together seem even more like a special treat. Along with C-actor Tong Dawei, the two filmed a road trip movie last year called Hollywood Adventures which will be premiering in the big screens in China at the end of June.
The movie was executed produced by Taiwanese-American director Justin Lin, who is no longer even a rising star in Hollywood as he’s long cemented his box office creds with the hit Fast and Furious sequels. Justin flew to Hollywood to join Zhao Wei and Huang Xiaoming for the TCL Chinese Theaters 88th anniversary celebration and hand print ceremony. For those Trekkies in my readership, Justin flew in from Canada where he’s currently directing the rebooted Star Trek 3, taking over for J.J. Abrams. It’s always worth noting when Asian or Asian-American entertainers get recognized at a Hollywood level so congrats to these three talented stars.
