Source: The Daily ChilliIt turns out that Hong Kong comedy titan Stephen Chow takes more than just the director’s chair for his latest flick Journey To The West.A bigger surprise awaits those who are anticipating his latest directorial work during Chinese New Year: he's in the movie."Actually I do take on an important role in the film, but of course I am in disguise. Those who are interested can try to look for me in the film," he teased at a recent press conference in Hong Kong.Apart from his cameo appearance, the 50-year-old also revealed another secret weapon ("an atomic bomb in comedy," he said), in the form of Taiwanese pop star Show Luo. The popular singer-actor-host played "the fairest character in the film", according to Stephen, as the latter heaped praises on Show for his brilliant comedic timing."He came up with a lot of his own things in the film. I had to teach others on the set, but when it comes to Show, he is a fast learner and has great comedic talent," he said.The comedy, also starring Taiwanese actress Shu Qi, is hailed as one of the most anticipated Lunar New Year flicks of 2013 as it marks Stephen's return to the film scene after a three-year absence.
