James Hong

Highest Rated: 100% American Masters (2008)
Lowest Rated: 0% Hot to Trot (1988)
Birthday: Feb 22, 1929
Birthplace: Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA
Although born in America, was educated partly in Hong Kong, where his father was from. Before becoming an actor, gained a degree in civil engineering and worked as a road engineer in Los Angeles for seven years, using his holidays and sick days for auditions and acting. Enrolled in the United States Army during the Korean War, but quickly gained such a reputation for entertaining troops that, before he was deployed, he was asked to stay behind and oversee the army camp's live shows. As well as acting, has tried his hand at directing, producing and writing. Has an extensive filmography as an actor, with well over 500 films to his name. Starred in two totally unrelated films entitled China Girl; one in 1974 and one in 1987. Although not necessarily a household name, is a favourite amongst film enthusiasts, with roles in many cult classics including Mulan, Blade Runner, Big Trouble in Little China, Wayne's World and Kung Fu Panda.
