This athletically built, dark-haired U.S. actor/screenwriter/director of European parentage may never be mentioned by old-school film critics in the same breath as, say, Richard Burton or Alec Guinness; however, movie fans worldwide have been flocking to see Stallone's films for over 30 years, making "Sly" one of Hollywood's biggest-ever box office draws... “ Would have been top dog but the fact that he did so many *beep* movies after gaining star status and his best movie was of the sport genre he is at number 2 I am nt saying I dont like him he is one of my favorite actors ”  

When Jean-Claude Van Damme became an international film star, there was some debate as to his kick-boxing accomplishments.

Van Damme brushed off the "challenge" as a publicity stunt...“ Apart from Bruce Lee the best martial artist in hollywood but what gives him such a high rating is the fact that he mixed up guns stunts and martial arts really well ” 

Born in Germany to parents living on a US military base, New Jersey raised US actor and musician well known for his film appearances as wise cracking or hard edged characters, often in spectacular action films.

Sigourney Weaver was born Susan Alexandra Weaver in Leroy Hospital in New York City. Her father, TV producer Sylvester L. Weaver Jr., originally wanted to name her Flavia, because of his passion for Roman history (he had already named her elder brother Trajan).

Apprenticed to the China Drama Academy (or "opera school") by his parents at the age of 6, Jackie Chan was rigorously trained in music, dance, and traditional martial arts. A visiting filmmaker offered Chan his first (tiny) role as a stunt player. Chan took the part, and soon left the Opera to pursue the world of film...“ One of the most entertaining actors of all time ”

The best action hero of the 20th century so far and my favorite anti hero ”

He got the audition for his debut role as Bacon in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels through French Connection...“ The ultimate badass with his awesome accent martial art proficiency unabashed shaved head and kick ass demeanor he has the potebtial to be the next Arnie/Sly/Bruce/Van Damme ”
