Besides acting in his films, Chan has also acted as a director, cinematographer, producer, writer, and stunt coordinator.

However, his difficulty with speaking English and poor promotion of his films in the US kept him from becoming a true Hollywood icon, not until the late '90s rolled along when he made the comedy hits Rush Hour with Chris Tucker, Shanghai Noon and their sequels. In 2008, Chan appeared opposite Jet Li in The Forbidden Kingdom and voiced for the movie Kung Fu Panda.
