I Know Everything - Chapter 508
Chapter 508: It went smoothly.
After putting down his phone, Chen Huan couldn’t help but laugh and shake his head.
That celebrity Chi Bin really had quite the character.
He could do anything but shave his head.
In other words, he would come perform if they made it a bit longer than a buzz cut.
But it was the actor that should adapt to the role and the role that should adapt to the actor.
If there was a handsome guy with nice hair in a prison filled with bald guys, ‘Prison Break’ would definitely crash immediately.
It was impossible to let it be longer.
How could they expect the viewers to buy it when they didn’t even follow the most basic common sense?
So Chen Huan just put this candidate aside and stopped considering him for the role.
Chen Huan saw many eccentric celebrities but most of it was off screen.
When in role, even a quirky star would devote themselves to the role.
Schwarzenegger was willing to tie himself to a helicopter for a scene, Little Leo almost threw himself to death for his Oscar with ‘The Revenant’ and Jacky Chan almost paralyzed himself when he fell from the mountain, who the hell was Chi Bin to tell him what to do? Was he any bigger than them?
Chen Huan would definitely not consider those people whose quirk affected the role.
Fortunately, his second candidate Li Yingzhi didn’t bring as many problems.
In the afternoon after getting the general character setting and plot, Li Yingzhi called Chen Huan himself to thank Chen Huan for giving him this opportunity. He would try his best to join the film crew as soon as possible to experience the ambience of prison and prepare for shooting.
Look, this was a real actor!
This was how an actor should act!
No matter what kind of superstar it was, they could only remain as an idol-like actor for their lifetime if they didn’t have the mentality to give it their all for their acting career.
Oh, this was wrong.
Not for a lifetime.
At 30 years old, celebrities like that would be practically cast away and they would basically only play supporting roles such as some domineering young master.
It was like Uncle Liu.
An actor in his 40s still playing a pretty boy role was like an insult to the actor.
But he wasn’t a real actor and was happy to be able to make money.
But Mimi couldn’t bear with it anymore and the two divorced afterwards.
After Ling Yingzhi, Yan Yu got the role script and especially made a trip to Lin’an.
Chen Huan invited him to supper in a skewer shop near the school.
Skewers were something every man liked and as long as they had time, money and no illness, then skewers were definitely a pleasure of life.
Yan Yu was a hearty person that came from the northeast.
As soon as he went in, he ordered a bunch of meat, kidney and belly skewers as in northeast tradition.
The essential order was the beers.
But Chen Huan drank a normal beverage.
The two started to drink and talk.
“Teacher Lu, I looked at the role and found it interesting.” Yan Yu said, “But isn’t his criminal record overboard? Wouldn’t it make people feel that he’s a villain and affect his standing in the story?”
Yan Yu didn’t do a major drama but he had a lot of experience as an actor.
He also liked to talk about his role with the writers and directors.
Of course, this was after he became famous since he didn’t dare to speak up when he played the generic villains.
However, the discussion made people feel that Yan Yu didn’t talk for the sake of his own role but was genuine and a better suggestion for the script.
With his suggestion, there were more brilliant scenes in the story.
Thus, Yan Yu gained the title of ‘Amateur Director’.
He came and was certain to play the role of the brother Chen Sheng but there was something he must discuss about the story.
In ‘Prison Break’, Xin Changkong was just the executor while Teacher Chu was the true soul behind it.
Unfortunately, no one could contact Chu Liuxiang except Zhu Mei and Lu Xiaofeng.
That was why he figured that he would talk to Teacher Lu and Teacher Lu would pass on his words to Teacher Chu.
“How could it be possible for the people to misjudge him without his past misdeeds?” Chen Huan said, “I believe this is a setting for the scenes in the prison to happen.”
“Then, should his personality be an easily irritable man or a restrained volcano that is about to erupt?” Yan Yu asked, “I looked at the setting of the plot and it seems that the little brother shines more so I think he can also show some unique traits. Such as tenacity to never give up no matter how irritating and bad the situation was.”
Chen Huan laughed.
Yan Yu wanted more scenes for himself.
In the story, the younger brother Mo Ke was indeed the one with the focus.
With Yan Yu’s personality, he didn’t want to lag behind the other party even if it was a dual protagonist script.
Not to mention he already knew that the actor for the role of Mo Ke was Li Yingzhi.
Ling Yingzhi was very handsome and had good acting skill but whether he could overwhelm Yan Yu in acting, Yan Yu was obviously not convinced by that.
He felt it was an opportunity instead.
An opportunity to go against the current.
So he came to see whether he could get the support of Chu Liuxiang.
But Chen Huan wasn’t angered by it.
It was obviously the same for Chu Liuxiang.
Yan Yu’s requirements were completely different from Chi Bin.
Yan Yu was thinking about his own role characteristic and making the character shine more.
While Chi Bin wanted to change the basic setting of the role, which was unacceptable.
“I never thought deeply about the details.” Chen Huan hummed for a bit and said, “As long as you develop chemistry and give a good performance, I don’t think Teacher Chu will be bothered by it. He’s just giving an overall setting of the role and you don’t have to follow by the book for every detail. Wouldn’t it be fine if you just played your role well?”
“Ha, I was waiting for those words!” Yan Yu was overjoyed, “Here, Teacher Lu, let me toast you again!”
With that, he gulped down a glass of beer.
He had room to play as long as Chen Huan didn’t object on behalf of Chu Liuxiang.
A good TV series was hard to find.
It was hard for him, who looked so fierce and mean, to find a good TV series and it was even rarer to find a role who wasn’t a villain.
He would have to apologize to the heaven for giving him this chance if he didn’t seize this opportunity and played the role of Chen Sheng well.
After all, he was 37 years old but was still moving around the small screen scene.
He was an actor that longed for the big screen so he must shine with this role!
