Celebrity Birthday of the Day – April 26

Jet Li

Jet Li is a Chinese actor/martial artist who hit it big on our side of the world with Lethal Weapon 4. Now, he played the villain in that movie, and got his ass kicked by an aging Mel Gibson and Danny Glover. We all know that could never happen in real life. But at least now Jet Li was someone we could all recognize. His next films, Romeo Must Die, Kiss of the Dragon, The One, and Hero really cemented Li’s status as action star. His first film with Jackie Chan, The Forbidden Kingdom, was built up a lot, but rather underwhelming. And I would rather not mention (but am obliged to mention) his title role in The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor. But all in all, Jet Li is always fun to watch. He is an impressive martial artist and was the best part of last summer’s The Expendables.
