Frptwenty: When he grew up he was devastated to learn that the job had already been given to the Great Wall. That’s why he’s an actor now.

ExtraPlus: That Jet Li’s name? Albert Einstein.
apolyonz: As an adult he lamented the forced nationalism of the movie industry, talking about how he didn’t like the fact that all the bad guys in the films he watched growing up were Japanese. Today he would probably prefer to defend everybody. Nice chap.
kom1er: TIL some straight bullshit

BertMacGyver: Looking through his wiki I was reminded of his debut film, The Shaolin Temple. It’s on YouTube so i sat through the first 10 minutes to remind myself of the classic line “Ah, looks like you’re the famous Mighty Leg Chang. But soon you will be BROKEN LEG CHANG!”. My mate first showed me the film when we were teenagers and he died last year so this brought back some happy memories of us that i had forgotten. So thank you.
