Hollywood #2: Now you see me 2
« on: January 17, 2015, 09:15:52 pm »
Use this thread for news etc..

Thoughts on Jay's participation anyone ?

Anyway this is NOT a good sign..a picture of the cast



Hopefully because Jay is too busy and not too minor of a role to be featured there..

Jay was only in the UK for like what? 10 days of filming? Seems like he might just have a minor role. :(

Kuso, that's obviously not the entire cast... Otherwise where's Morgan Freeman and Daniel Radcliffe?

Daniel Radcliffe is right there next to Michael Caine. I also found it weird that he's not in the pic but I would guess it's because he's very busy with his wedding and his role isn't super big.

Well he was announced next to caplan and radcliffe so i would guess hes role should be big enough to be featured in a picture like that. Thats a set picture not just a snap of the cast after their filming.

Good news is that jay hadnt finished filming and hes staying in uk to film with hannah as his interpreter lol.

Kuso: Thanks for starting this thread!

Jay and Hannah are still on their honeymoon and I'm sure he was given space and time to do so by the understanding director., Jon Chu.
As such, it is not surprising that he was not in that photo.
I wouldn't read too much into that.

He's at the No 9 spot in the cast billing on IMDB.
He has also previously said his role is a supporting one and not one of the mains.

Jay is back at work!

Mark Ruffalo posted this on Facebook and Instagram!

"Jay Chou teaching me tricks and how to act on Now You See Me Second Act."

Hmm...the man just won a Screen Actors Guild award.
He's probably the one teaching Jay how to act...lol!
Gotta love Mark Ruffalo!

With Keith Barry, an Irish mentalist, hypnotist and magician, who had worked with the cast on NYSM.

Phone interview with Jay from London!




"Jay may write a new song or use one of his for the movie.
More importantly, he is relishing the chance to experience the movie-making process again and to learn more about magic and directing.
He plays a supporting role as the owner of a shop selling magic props. He is, however not very customer-friendly. Hopefully, the audience will enjoy his performance."

Thanks for the link..

He says his role is very short, I think it is just one scene..of him in the magic shop and doing a few tricks and then done with the movie.

Interesting how he still says he wants to learn directing process even though he says he's done with directing ?

If he gets to use his old song, I think Twilight Chapter Seven or Enchanting Melody would be fitting. I prefer Twilight. Hopefully they use it when Jay appears in the movie.

He'd probably use Mr Magic. Those other 2 songs have nothing to do with magic.

He already dismissed Mr Magic in the interview because it was too humourous/happy, while the movie has a pretty serious tone. Remember in The Era concert he had clowns dancing around while singing that song.

Enchanting Melody has themes of illusion in it. Twilight evokes mysterious feelings and based on detectives, which could sort of be loosely categorised into magic.

I don't think he will really get to write a new song for it, it's not common for Hollywood to do that (I think). Hopefully John Chu is Jay's fan and will try to put a Jay song in it. I don't have high hopes though.

1. This was taken recently I think = Great, how you know?
2. don't know where Jay is = Jay is still filming, so he spotted in LA --> more information check Jay Chou Diaoness FB. It is JanL's page.
3. he should be there = Why? He is too busy. He should remember the script and talk fluently, not taking photo and wasting time. I think he should in the movie, not in the photo. 
4. Even Keith Barry who's only an advisor is there = Who cares? Stop compare Jay with an advisor, Jay already take a photo with the director.  :wave:
