The most underrated actor in Hollywood by far. He's definitely the real deal and not your average cookie-cutter actor. Been a fan of his since his breakout role in Tyson, which came out in '95. A well-accomplished martial artist as he holds 7 black belts in different forms; I think he could definitely give Bruce Lee, Chuck Norris and other martial artists a run for their money. Hollywood needs to take notice of this man right here.

He's a cool dude but you are WAAAAAAY off when it comes to him being anywhere near the same class in martial arts as Bruce Lee or "other martial artists". He would be the first one to tell you that. I like him in Spawn and "Black Dynamite" but lets not get crazy about him being able to give Bruce Lee, Jet Li or Jackie Chan a "run for their money" in terms of martial arts, because that is just crazy.

What is a WELL ACCOMPLISHED martial artist?

As my Sensei would say: "To be a student of many is to be master of none"!

BTW: Since the late 70's .. it's been fairly Easy for folks to "Purchase" their Black Belts.

Also as my Sensei would say: "Black Belt is Only a beginning"! (Which I can attest to after almost 40 years.)

He trained in Martial Arts but he's far from being a Master.

Good guy though! I heard.

Great actor. I saw the Tyson movie this past weekend. He has also been featured in Nikki Minaj's video although I could care less about her!

Pretty good actor, dynamic, energetic. At the same level as Bruce Lee or Chuck as a pure martial artist? Nah.

As my sensei would say: What do you do with a black belt? Hold up your pants.

He showed great martial arts skills with Jamie Pressly in "The Ring Master".
