Taiwanese-Canadian actor Mark Chao rejected at least 30 movie scripts over the past year, he said.

"My manager's starting to get upset with me. He's like, 'Hey, why don't you make some money?'" he told Life! with a laugh at a sit-down interview.

"I'm very picky. Maybe the script was for a role that I'd done before, or it was one that I could sort of see where it was going, so there would be no surprise element.

"I want to be responsible to my fans. I want them to say, 'Oh, Mark's in a movie. Do we know what it's about? No, but it's going to be good, because he's in it'."
