I really feel quite passionate about asian actors being taken seriously. The only roles that asians are really being given and martial arts roles, steryotyped roles or roles that were MADE for an asian. I'm glad that black actors are beginnning to be taken serioiusly and that hollywood is beginning to let go of old racial boundries, but we need to see that happen to asian actors! you will notice that asian american actors that dont look asian (keanu reeves, dean cain) seem to be having it abit easier coz people dont even know that they have asian blood in them. Theres alot of asian talent out there and i think its time to let them shine

Before Chuck Norris, Steven Segal, Van Dam, Sonny Chiba, Jackie Chan, and even Jet Li, there was the The only ONE "Bruce Lee."
He will always be the "Man."
What can I say, after almost 30 years after his death, we are still talking about him.

Bruce Lee is the Greatest, and Marc Dacoscos is the most under appreciated

Jackie Chan, Jet Li and Chow Yun-Fat have become big stars in Hollywood and are getting even bigger higher profile projects all the time.

I would like to see Jason Scott Lee and Russell Wong do more films. It seems like they will only make a film appearance once every 2 or 3 years. Its almost as if something is holding them back. I also think John Cho of American Pie 1,2 and TV's Off Centre has good potential. Also, what about Mark Dacoscos? He's already a pretty big star in Asia and Europe, but he has yet to get that breakout role to propell him to the next level of stardom. Hopefull being cast as Jet Li's adversary in the upcoming Joel Silver produced hip hop/action/martial arts flick "Cradle 2 The Grave" will help him accomplish that.

Anyone know which magazine reported that Bruce Lee was a drug addict? A friend of mine told me he read that in some men's magazine and it pissed me off. Why have certain people been trying to discredit Bruce Lee lately? Is it due to the resurgence in his popularity?

I've heard conspiracy theories that British Intelligence agents in Hong Kong, at the behest of the CIA, were behind the scandal-ridden death of Bruce Lee because he provided a positive image of an Asian Man at the height of the Vietnam War. The last thing the West wanted was an Asian action hero on movie screens around the world.

Sheesh, folks here are STILL dumping on Keeanu? I don't care what he considers himself. I want to give props to the Japanese knock-out: Sakura Sena.
