Probably pretty tough - the director said he used only a few experienced actors (they probably didn't want their name tarnished :P )

Another one:

Wang Gang. Here are some pictures I found of him on the net. Note the funky ear lobes:

Is this him from the cast (15 or so years earlier)? Look like the same ear lobes.

If looking in the dianying's database it seems to be the right Wang Gang on the internets images (dunno how bulletproof this speculation is though), they list three Wang Gang's but only the one starring in Men Behind the Sun is credited as actor in TV-series.

Interesting, because he appears in Laboratory of the Devil (Men Behind the Sun 2). Here is his ID shot:

This wasn't very easy, when comes to labaratory I have only seen his name being mention in the cast at DVDshopping-places but not noticed it in the various databases I looked in. I link these two more images of "wang gang's" from CnMDb if they could be useful to this investigation:

I've gotta think these are the same people. The very distinct earlobes and the additional fact that he uses glasses in his roles really makes me believe this is indeed him. Anyone else want to give their opinion?

I think the reason his looks different is that he gained some weight between the 90s and now (I believe these new pics are from his TV series)

Tagged Mei Zhaohua, Hao Linjie, Tian Jiefu and (some time ago, I think) Liu Xuhui.
