Wasted Opportunity - Yu Rong-Guang

Yu Rong-Guang started out strong co-starring in Iron Monkey, possibly the best wire-fu movie ever.  The same year he was the villain against Michelle Yeoh in Project S, but aside from his excellent role as the baddie in Jet Li's My Father is a Hero, he was criminally underused.  Pretty soon he was playing dads in period pieces, but at least he seems to be finding steady work in non-fighting roles.  I seem to remember from reports at the time that audiences didn't care for his red Chinese origins or Mandarin accent.
