That Guy Actor of the Week: Al Leong

You guys are definitely familiar with this guy.   He’s an Asian American actor and stuntman that has picked up a cult fan following based around his numerous appearances in high voltage action flicks from the mid-1980s onwards.

Al Leong nearly always turns up as a bad guy with his lean muscled physique, incredible agility, amazing martial arts skill’s wispy black hair and Fu-Manchu style mustache.

I’m surprised he only has 59 titles to his name but you can be sure he made each one count.  A clip of Leong after the jump….


Here you see him taking on Brandon Lee in Rapid Fire.
