    That small guy is Brad Allen. That's why I think in terms of physical attributes, he's the best lead in for Jackie's protege.

    Bradley Allen is my hero. He is simply amazing.

    New Police Story. Great action. Good fights. Charlene Choi is my new girlfriend.

    Jackie's fighting may not be up to snuff, but that guy is in insane shape for someone in their early 50's. When he did a documentary-ish thing about his stunt style (it was a filmaker documentary, not a fighting one), he confessed that he worked out almost every day.

    Even if his fighting ability isn't that great, I'm sure he could still beat up on most of us out of sheer physical ability.

    At the very least, in terms of breakfalls, I think he'll outperform most of us.
    I mean this guy breakfalls on t3h str33t, skycrapers, choppers, and anywhere else he think he can breakfalls. :)

    That's one of his bodyguards and former Muay Thai champion Ken Lo.

    More on him here. He's also in some of my favorite Hong Kong gangster movies, the Young and Dangerous series.

    Stephen Chow operates kinda differently from Jackie Chan, as you can see from his latest movies. Chan is Buster Keaton funny, while Chow is... is crazy nuts funny.

    Jackie Chan can direct really really exciting and cool fighting scenes though, something I wish he'll still be doing.
    I don't think the man can do it anymore (too old for those craps associated with stuntwork), but if he will actually direct classic Jackie Chan movies with young actors, that would be awesome.
    Tony Jaa is an excellent physical actor, although his stuff is less funny and more violent than Jacky's.

    Another guy with really really cool kicks is the last guy who fought with Jacky in Drunken Master 2.


    And for all the posts reminding that Jackie doesn't do "real" kung fu, yes we know, we get it. However, he does "real" really crazy stunt-working, something that most physical actors or martial/stunt artists will not risk their life for.
    And that's why he got his respect and dues. The guy's nuts.
    The guy he fights in the end of Drunken Master 2 is was actually his body guard in real life.
