He's already been on record with the Asian media as saying so.

Just reading Jackie's dialogue, I can picture him talking, and its pretty funny. I love how he stops to ask Quint his age, and then laughs.

But more than anything I'm trying to get over the fact Woolworth's still exists. Haven't seen one in twenty years. Oh, and I had to look up "pikey."

No way that will fly here. Unless it's comedy with real comedians.

as every Asian martial artist in cinema.This poor bastard (Lee) had to go through so much shit in America to promote his projects only to get turned down and have David Carradine use his TV series concept which we all know turned out to be Kung Fu.<p>Then after the success of Big Boss in China, now all of the sudden Hollywood acknowledged him..typical.<p>Lee paved the way for martial artists in cinema like Kirby did for creator owned comic artists.That aside I'll wait till I hea any positive reviews before diving in to see this.

You interviewed Jackie Friggen Chan...
April 18, 2008, 7:53 a.m. CST
maybe a HK version of the crossing guard. <P> just a slow buildup, no punches, or silliness.<P> of coarse the crazy government would probably say that it undermines the law, and therefore is illegal.

Instead of, "I was in Singapore and he was in Taiwan" He said, "I want Singapore, I want Taiwan" referring to the conflict about distribution rights. But great interview Quint. Good Job. I love all the SOUND-O-TEXT!

I would love to interview Jackie one day. Youa re a very lucky man to land this. <p>Excellent interview. It really shows the "everyman" Jackie truly is and I appreciate him more now than ever.
April 18, 2008, 8:56 a.m. CST
by the way
HEY, HARRY! DID YOU GET MY EMAIL ABOUT STARTING A PETITION TO SAVE JONZE'S "Where the Wild Things Are"....instead of waiting over a year for the studio's version.
April 18, 2008, 9:13 a.m. CST
Thats impossible. Everyone loves Jackie.
April 18, 2008, 9:17 a.m. CST
I met Jackie at a book signing once and he's one of the nicest celebs ever. He took the time to talk to everyone on the line and the book was pretty fascinating too (I Am Jackie Chan). Bruce and Brandon are still my faves, but Jackie's up there.
April 18, 2008, 9:28 a.m. CST
the fight between Jet Li and the old student where Jet starts doing Jeet Kune Do and boxing was just fucking awesome.
April 18, 2008, 9:29 a.m. CST
with Jackie in the Neil Patrick Harris role. That would fucking rule.
April 18, 2008, 9:41 a.m. CST
Wow what a turkey. Its a sham Li and Chan didn't team up in their prime. This seems like too little too late. But the fan in me has to see this almost historical cinematic event. Its kinda like Freddy Vs. Jason. You just have to see something you've been thinking about for years.
April 18, 2008, 11:15 a.m. CST
He Has a Love / Hate relationship with the Rush Hour films. Hahahaha. He is a BIG believer in fast action, as I have seen him talk of his earlier films as being slow before too. I look forward to him pulling in a serious drama or two in the coming years, foreign or domestic. Bring it on. Shinjuku? I'll check it out.
April 18, 2008, 11:23 a.m. CST
his rampant infidelity, the recent woes of Edison Chen(if he's still alive after what happened) and when will we see another on-screen pairing of Chan and Wilson in SHANGHAI DAWN. For the record: My story is about me and how I protected a close-minded and superstitious monk on a pilgrimage to India to secure scriptures that would eventually bring Buddhism to Chinese folks. I fought alone and alongside my brothers-in-arms Chu BaChieh and Sha Monk, and killed many a demon resulting in much blood and gore, but my story was NEVER about animal styles. Get it straight next time Quint!!!!
April 18, 2008, 11:27 a.m. CST
to ninja kick any tibetans that appear on the scene.
April 18, 2008, 11:27 a.m. CST
no doubt about it. His book, I Am Jackie Chan (BSB mentions it) is incredible! His life as a student in the Chinese opera school is crazy!<p>I love every Jackie movie, no matter the cheeze factor, because he's so darn honest and friendly. <p>I hope he will return for one last "true" Jackie action film to end all Jackie action films after he does his dramatic stuff.
April 18, 2008, 11:35 a.m. CST
...but if you look closely in the dungeon scene in Enter the Dragon, you'll see Bruce get Chan (with a Fu Manchu mustache) in an arm lock while holding the back of him hair, then snapping him while the camera zooms in on Bruce. Great stuff. BTW_ does Jackie Chan seem to go back and forth on whether or not he enjoys making American films? I keep hearing him flip flop...
April 18, 2008, 12:29 p.m. CST
to see that Jackie despises the Rush Hour movies, the Shanghai movies and this movie. It's actually nice to see he doesn't get why people like them because it means he's just there for the paycheck and i can respect that. All his American movies suck ass because of the lack of real stunts and fights. Even tamer HK movies like Mr Nice Guy put the American dross to shame.

Even many western people can't understand what Chris Tucker is sayin' most of the time...

I love how at age 54, he still welcomes and desires change as an actor.

A decapitation kick would have been awesome.

Sure..there was some in The Matrix, but I didn't do shit for the genre.

Jackie did father a child and threw money at the mistress for an abortion. The mistress is a small known TV actress and presenter. Well after that incident the actress has "retired" from the HK entertainment circle and a daughter was born. The thing is people need to know that Jackie has a Western persona and then a Hong Kong persona. Fact of the matter is Jackie Chan makes Tony Soprano look like Pee Wee Herman. I'm used to the bad ass mafia Jackie and not this stupid monkey he pretends to be. He should quit Hollycrud as he is a disgrace in front of a western camera.

Are you fucking daft? How old are you - 18? If you were an adult in the pre-Matrix era, you would know that it changed a lot.
April 19, 2008, 4:45 a.m. CST
Jackie has made some dubious movies but most of his Hong Kong work is top notch.
April 19, 2008, 1:11 p.m. CST
Chan had a baby girl out of wedlock, he and his TWINS EFFECT 2 co-stars(Jackie's son included)banged both Gillian and Charlene of THE TWINS, Chan is "very high up" in the HK crime syndicate, Edison Chen is marked for death(or dead already) for banging and taking risque or hardcore pics of many HK actresses(including Maggie Q, Cecilia Cheng, etc..), Chan was in 2 Bruce Lee films FIST OF FURY and ENTER THE DRAGON. A young, bucket-hatted Jackie can be seen during the beginning of Robert Clouse' 1978 abortion GAME OF DEATH after the spotlight falls from the ceiling. Jackie is scum in my wives eyes and I used to be a huge Chan fan. Stephen Chow, on the other hand, is a class act. Jet Li as well.
April 19, 2008, 3:05 p.m. CST
Its good to know that tabloid news will always have a customer in you. Although I do agree, Stephen Chow is a much better person.
