Shanghai Morning Post reports the teenager will play Liu Shan, the last emperor of the Shu kingdom, in the film adaptation of the classic Chinese novel, "Romance of the Three Kingdoms".

The film is a joint production from China and South Korea. Xiaopang said it will star a number of high-profile Hong Kong actors, like Andy Lau, Sammo Hung and Maggie Q. Andy Lau will play General Zhao Yun, one of the greatest warriors of the three kingdoms era.

The young man said he would consider staying in showbiz if his first foray on the big screen is successful.

The production company said they invited Xiaopang to play the role because they think he's a really interesting guy and the movie needs a comic character for light relief.
