Last One Standing; Hollywood & TVB!

Last One Standing is confirmed to be airing at September 22, taking MR's time slot. The series looks intriguing to me! I'm gonna watch this if I have time :] And Yoyo's character in LOS seems similar to her character in The Ultimate Crime Fighter... The title was previously called 'Walking With The Enemy', but I personally like 'Last One Standing' better. The cast includes Roger Kwok, Kevin Cheng, Yoyo Mung, Kiki Sheung, Elaine Yiu, Evergreen Mak, Fiona Yuen, Macy Chan etc. The series has 22 episodes.

Kevin (Cheung Sing Hei) was accused for killing his stepfather and was sent to prison. The person who witnessed the killing was his cousin, Roger (Tong Lap Yin). After he was released from prison, he tries to find the truth behind the murder. While investigating, he meets Yoyo (Lei Pui Ka) who is a reporter. But Yoyo is actually Roger's girlfriend. So I'm guessing there's a love triangle between them?

Have you ever noticed that some of the TVB stars, also resemble some Hollywood stars? Here are a few TVB celebs which reminded me of the other Hollywood celebs.

Liza Wang - Julie Andrews
They're both highly respected in the entertainment industry and have been in the entertainment industry for a VERY long time! Both can sing.. Liza sings Cantonese Opera and Julie sang LOTS of songs from all kinds of movies (The Sound of Music, Mary Poppins etc).

Roger Kwok - Johnny Depp
Both of them are versatile and can play almost any character given. Who could forget Roger's comedic character in Life Made Simple? And of course Johnny's performance in Pirates of The Caribbean sequels. And from the sales presentation of Roger's new series, Last One Standing.. it LOOKS like he's going to play a serious, cunning man. Johnny's character from Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street, looks a bit similar to Roger's from LOT, but less scary I bet.

Niki Chow - Emma Rossum
Both were recognized for their acting at first, and then concentrated on releasing albums and singing. But of course they did not let go of their 'actress' status. Both are young as well! Not to mention since they released albums, their voices are beautiful :)

Bobby Au Yeung - Jim Carrey/Steve Carell
All 3 of them are well-known for their comedic characters. Jim Carrey stars in Dumb and Dumber, Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events and Bruce Almighty. Steve Carell never fails to impress us, some of his movies are Evan Almighty and Get Smart. Bobby's characters are also mostly hilarious and playful (Your Class or Mine, Armed Reaction sequels, Shine On You) and that's what makes him so popular. But when they have to act serious, they also succeed in doing so.
