  1. Please, try and get Benny “The Jet” Urquidez, Phillip Rhee, and Simon Rhee to do an interview for your book. I think they would be wonderful additions. You have an outstanding list so far! Looking forward to the release!

    • Hey man, unfortunately I don’t have those guys on this occasion but it would be great to interview them in the future. There is a pretty big list already as you said and, to be honest, there are still many others I’d like to have in there. I’m thinking maybe a second volume down the road! 🙂

  2. I read your last interview with Robin Shou and really enjoyed it.

    I found out about his frustrations with Hollywood but it was sad that had a lead role in any movie after Mortal Kombat. I think he is a great martial artist and much better looking then say Jackie Chan. I wish he had done more movies.

    Fortunately, he had a supporting role in Death Race which lead to his character getting a larger roles in the prequels.
