We got wind that TVB is considering a sequel (finally) of our favorite drama, Triumph In The Skies! The sequel has been in talks since forever, they were going to do it soon after the initial release in 2003 - but shit obviously didn’t go right and nothing ever happened.
Obviously, we hope it is going to work out. But we also hope they won’t screw it up (you know what they say about sequels, and especially TVB’s sequels…). So here are our picks of some possible casting choices to reduce the chances of the show failing.
1) ALEX FONG
Just look at him. Now, close your eyes and imagine him in a pilot uniform, controlling a 747, speaking pilot commands in English.
IS THERE ANYTHING LEFT TO SAY!??!? Seriously, you can’t go wrong with Alex Fong.
Moreover, even if Francis Ng is not going to be in the sequel, Alex will be a great
(might be even better) substitution choice for the old mature, handsome, awkwardly romantic man.
2) RUCO CHAN
Like we said, Ruco is a great actor with a diverse range, but rarely given the opportunity to play professional roles. His relative freshness on screen gives plenty of room for surprises.
3) STEPHEN WONG
Stephen Wong has been in many TVB shows for the last few years, but always minor roles (he actually was in Triumph) - would love to see him play prominent role. Besides, he would also look great in a pilot uniform ;)
