It's too bad Chuck Norris died so young.
Imagine if that had happened to Bruce Lee? We'd never have gotten to see Lee's Oscar winning and career changing performance as the North Vietnamese protagonist in Oliver Stone's Apocalypse Now. The look in his eyes when he called in the airstrike on Saigon as the American troops made their last stand still haunts me.
And Brandon Lee's role as Neo in The Matrix, well, that was just awesome!
The elder Lee had an interesting career. Played Sulu in Star Trek
. Cain in Kung Fu
. Then starred in Apocalypse Now
, Then is almost unrecognizable as Miyagi in The Karate Kid
opposite his son Brandon. Then comes back to TV to star as Captain Sulu again in The Next Generation,
