There’s netizen whom left comment that the requirement to be 007 is too high: “To be 007, one must be elegant, height of more than 1.85 meters, easy going, humorous, clever, cool headed, all the advantages of a man. It’s hard to find a Chinese actor. There are several actors still lookable, but forget about 007! Wanting to choose, Chow Yun Fat still that bit of charisma.” Other netizens agreed by saying: “In Chinese showbiz, no matter it’s outlook or potential, Chow Yun Fat is the closest to 007.
