DEAD R I N G E R
When an assignment goes awry and James Bond is left fighting for his life, M has no choice but to place him on the inactive duty roster. Frustrated by his lack of progress in rehabilitation, Bond is given a chance to return to the field when an MI6 agent is found murdered in Hong Kong. Unconvinced that Bond is ready for active duty, M instead authorises him to work as a case officer. Forced to adjust to his new circumstances, Bond begins a chase that will lead him from the perilous slopes of the Himalayas to the mean streets of cartel-controlled Mexico in pursuit of a dangerous villain with the power to destroy the lives of millions.

Okay, I'm a little stuck on who I'd have playing the role of James Pheng. I'm after a Chinese actor over the age of forty; closer to forty-five is better. Any suggestions?
