In as serious and unsalacious a manner as possible, please select the Hong Kong actor who you think should be the next to make such a bold career move, and appear in a serious film requiring nudity and explicit sex scenes.

Poll #323: Ang Lee's new film Lust, Caution, starring Tony Leung Chiu-Wai, Tang Wei, and Leehom Wang, has been branded with the dreaded NC-17 . From what we gather from web reports, the film contains adult situations, female nudity, and copious sexual content, but it's the intensity - and maybe the athletic creativity - of the latter that's getting this one the ratings smackdown. How does this affect your desire to see the film?

Poll #314: In the latest development in the ongoing saga of Battle of Red Cliff, the massive war epic to be directed by John Woo, long-attached star Chow Yun-Fat has dropped out, amidst reports that he was demanding and difficult. Chow claims that he never received a complete script, so he dropped out. Meanwhile, Tony Leung Chiu-Wai, who dropped out three weeks ago, has returned to take on Chow Yun-Fat's role. Reportedly, Leung is okay with the change of characters because he read a complete script a while ago. What's your take on this?

Poll #312: Before he committed suicide to prove his point, a 68 year-old father of an obsessed Andy Lau fan stated that he wanted Andy Lau to spend more time with his daughter because she has ardently followed Andy Lau for years. The idea, we think, is that Andy Lau should give more to the people who give so much to him. It's worth mentioning, however, that this girl has been obsessed with Lau for 12 years, and has driven her family to bankruptcy and her father to death in order to satisfy her Andy Lau fandom. Andy Lau has apparently responded by saying that he will not entertain the fantasies of irrational fans, and that parents should be smarter too. Is the family correct? Should Andy Lau be more giving to the most devoted fans? Or is Andy correct?

Poll #311: Tony Leung Chiu-Wai is dropping out of John Woo's Battle of Red Cliff, his epic war movie set during the Three Kingdoms Era. Had Leung remained in the film, he would have played master strategist Zhuge Liang, plus it would have been a re-teaming of the Hard Boiled crew: Woo, Leung, and Chow Yun-Fat. Leung's replacement in Red Cliff is Takeshi Kaneshiro. If not Takeshi, who would make a good replacement for Leung?
