John Woo's Leading Men

Any John Woo fan can tell you that the actors in his films are just as important as the gunfire and explosions going on. John Woo shares a special bond with his leading man and this director-actor chemistry can clearly be seen on-screen.So it's no surprise that Woo enjoys re-casting his leading man in several different films, most notably his favorite leading man; Chow Yun-Fat. Woo also injects a lot of his own feelings and emotions into his characters and sometimes if you see for example, Chow Yun Fat in a John Woo film, you actually see John Woo's alter ego. Here are some background information and selected filmography on some of Woo's leading men. I will continue to add more from time to time.
