In 2008, Zhang also won the Best Actor Award at the 29th Hundred Flowers Awards and the Best Leading Actor Award at the Golden Horse Film Awards. The following year, Zhang won the Outstanding Actor Award at the Huabiao Awards.
Zhang also has supporting roles in various acclaimed films, such as Cao Baoping's crime drama The Equation of Love and Death; the espionage thriller The Message; and the action film Bodyguards and Assassins. Zhang also played Zhang Liang in the historical film White Vengeance.
In 2014, Zhang starred in Tsui Hark's wuxia film The Taking of Tiger Mountain. Playing a undercover PLA soldier, he won the Golden Rooster Awards for Best Actor.
