Actor / Martial Artist

The only Chinese movie star both universally recognizable and bankable, Chan started out with small martial-arts parts in Bruce Lee movies then broke big in 1978’s “Drunken Master, which helped define the Hong Kong film industry’s golden era. Hollywood took notice of the 1995 “Rumble in the Bronx,” and before long Chan had moved onto the “Rush Hour” and “Karate Kid” franchises. An energetic businessman, he invests in cinemas, food and gyms, and he has greenlighting power through his Sparkle Roll and Talent International companies. A far more complete filmmaker than is widely appreciated — co-directing and producing as well — he was given an honorary Oscar in 2017. Action notwithstanding, Chan has been moving into drama, in such roles as 2017’s “The Foreigner.”
