03.05.11 [Nate] Rain Is Mentioned By Robert McKey, The Kingpin of Hollywood’s Storytelling Genre

Reportedly, ‘Robert Mckey’, the kingpin of Hollywood’s storytelling genre, recently saw Ninja Assassin in which Rain stars. How did he evaluate Rain’s acting in the movie?

“Rain’s acting was dynamite, and so charismatic. It was like that when I first saw ‘Brad Pitt’ in movie ‘Thelma and Louise’. Actors with charisma always stand out however they are in the corner.

If Rain decides to buckle down and go to Hollywood, he has to be stuck in the culture of each of the counties while leaving his native land for LA or London. He has to experience different worlds from where he’s been.

It can be difficult for him to work at the same time both at home and overseas, but he can succeed if he tries 100%. Can he make something of himself? I don’t see why not.

‘Tony Leung Chiu Wai’ (梁朝偉) and ‘Jakie Chan’ (成龍) have also been onto something big, haven’t they?”

    Wow! He sure knows who stands out…. I’m glad Rain is being recognized in Hollywood. I’m so happy for Bi. It’s all thanks to his passion in everything he does, his diligent habit, his hardwork….and his all

    I am not sure who this guy is but he must be someone important. That was an awsome and so true compliment about Rain’s acting. Rain is over flowing with charisma. I truely hope he makes it big in Hollywood. We need to see diversity in movies from talented people like Rain.

    Wait a second..this is all very well and of course Rain can do whatever he sets to do, but do we want Rain to waste his precious time for Holliwood or to make movies like ..I’m a Cyborg, but thats okay and other masterpeces. Sorry, Mr. Mc Key or Mickey or whovere this guy is, but who is to say that Holliwood deserves Rain? Franfly the last movies I want to see our amazing Rain is in American ones….and I am european.

    @silvia…hunh, hunh….i hear what you’re saying. i often asked myself that “does Hollywood deserve Rain”

    why because Rain not only beings a great orignal actor but he brings the whole of Asia to Hollywood’s door. yes, they have had Jackie Chan, Jet Li and others, but it’s a new generation coming to the front now and Rain has captured the majority of them. i don’t know who this guy is either, but it says he a writer. the best he can offer is a script and who he would like to play his characters. but if he doesn’t direct, finance, market or any of those things that need to be done to get the film to the audiances his words don’t mean much. now had this been M. Scadewski (co-writer of NA)i’d pay attention. why because MS has and is known by everybody in Hollywood and has sold script after script, has even written a reference book on how to write scripts (used by aspired writers),worked with A. Jolie, B. Pitt and big names out there. he also has produced tv and movies. lastly, i just want to comment that why should Rain have to turn his back on his homeland just for a Hollywood film???? if that’s what he needs to do than i hope he doesn’t come here. Hollywood can ruin a person in 24 hours.and i must add, their values are extremely low. actually i think Rain should continue doing what he’s doing and let Hollywood come to him (and they will eventually). then he can pick and choose his own scripts and not be manipulated into taking a script.

    Personally, I don’t think Rain has to or will forsake his homeland for Hollywood. He can perform on both sides of the ocean. Jackie Chan and Jet Li do it all the time. Airplanes go back and forth to anywhere land. Having said that, I think Rain is HIGHLY motivated, driven and ambitious and from where I sit, I feel his ambitions have outgrown the Asian market. Could he make himself content in his homeland? I’m sure he can, but does he want to? He has won just about every award Asia has to offer and done just about everything there is to do in entertainment in Asia and he’s still only 29/30 years old. The U.S. market is the “beast” that most performers (ex: singers, actors, dancers, musicians, etc.) want to “tame” on some level.

    Bi wants to break down doors over here and yes in order to break down doors Somebody has to be the first to do certain things. This means he may have to (in the short run) do films that some would say are beneath his talents. However, Bi is a “long run” visionary and he may be willing to make some sacrifices so that Hollywood begins to recognize his countrymen in a more favorable light, certainly in a more sexual/romantic light.

    If Hollywood knows like I Know, they need to have someone monitoring these U.S. blogs and see just HOW MUCH women of ALL RACES have the HOTS for Bi and other Asian performers alike. Hollywood is about M-O-N-E-Y baby and just as soon as the first Asian romantic lead in a film makes movie magic and in turn, Millions, Oh you better know Hollywood will take notice. But SOMEONE has to be the first one to do it. Why not Bi?

    One more comment, Hollywood will come to you if you first prove/show that you are bankable. I think Hollywood execs have seen that from Rain in the Asian market, but I’m sure they want him to show what he can do in the U.S. market. If he can pull in more money than Ninja Assassin, Then he may be able to pick and choose his scripts at that point, but I don’t know if that’s the case now. I’m sure he’s getting scripts, even he has said that….but picking anything he wants?……

    Also, every big name A-list movie megastar has early filmwork under their belt that makes them “cringe” whenever interviewers show them old movie clips of themselves, But EVERY A-lister had to start somewhere and Bi isn’t any different in that regard.

    YES, I want him to come here. He deserves the opportunity to prove what he can do and to shut up any “nay sayers” (if there be any). Also, doors that open up to you, don’t necessarily stay open. There’s an old saying “Strike while the iron is hot”…..is fitting in this case. You have to be willing/ready to act when opportunity presents itself.

    One last MINOR point, Bi is also a man that has alluded to wanting a family and to someday marry. I get the feeling he would like that to be sooner rather than later and probably not while he’s in the military. However, as we are all well aware, it is hard as “heck” for him to date in Asia and publicly…..Forget it! However, in the U.S. he would be free to do that if he chose to without anyone really caring, since he is not well known….YET, to the broader mainstream. No, I don’t think dating will be his primary focus, but certainly another incentive (albeit a smaller one) to “change locations.”
