Personal Quote:

I think audiences like to see their favorite actor handle himself physically on screen, however he does it. He can wrestle, or box, or he can know karate. That is attractive to the types of people who enjoy these (martial arts) movies. Plus, as an actor, it's a blast being able to do it. See more »

Trivia:

Best known by the public for his role as Terry Silver, the main villain of John G. Avildsen's sequel The Karate Kid Part III (1989). See more »

Trademark:

Towering slender yet dark stature See more »
