I am looking for a live action movie or drama (does not matter) with a smart main protagonist. He must be male. I want them to have situations where they must show their intelligence. It does not have to be based on a manga!!
I REALLY prefer them to be Asian, but if you know of any really good ones in another language then I will try it out.

You could always check out Hustle (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Hustle)

There's also Leverage (http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/Leverage).

I was going to write up summaries for these, but it's much easier and more effective to just read what's written at the top of those pages.

A couple quick notes: The first episodes of both series' (in my opinion) weren't that great, so I'd recommending checking out episode 2 before making a decision. Hustle has it's own twisted sense of humor, which shows up a bit in episode 1, but a lot at the end of ep 2. As for Leverage, some of the scenes are really awkward, although I think that's more the screenwriters fault than the actors, since the lines themselves were the awkward part. That really only applies for ep 1 though. Anyways, this turned out to be longer than I expected, sorry.

Oh, one last thing. The series have similar concepts, but that's it. The two are very different, so if you dislike one, you might still like the other.
