Funny. Jonas Blaine does James Bond. (There's another action hero with JB for his initials.) The first part of this week's episode of The Unit is supposed to take place in Macau--they have a shot of one of the Casinos. (Did Lisboa start another casino? I see Po King in Chinese in the opening shot, and then something else in English, Golden Lotus. Never mind, I checked it again and you can indeed see a shot of the Lisboa building right behind the sign. Of course, the rest of the episode was probably filmed somewhere else... California?)

Edit. There may be one or two native Cantonese-speaker among the minor characters. Bridget Sullivan's Cantonese is really bad--there's no way she could pass as a native. Or as a Portuguese expat speaking Cantonese.
