History:

James Hong

SOME ACTORS DON'T NEED VERY MUCH INTRODUCTION BECAUSE YOU HAVE SEEN HIM SO MANY TIMES! MR. JAMES HONG is one of those actors. You might not know his name, but you definitely know his face. You should - he has been in so many! Some of this information is located at his website that you can enter HERE.

He has been in productions such as Lo Pan in "Big Trouble in Little China", the voice of Chi Fu in "Mulan", and appeared opposite popular stars like Harrison Ford in "Blade Runner" and Jack James Hong Nicholson in "Chinatown" and "The Two Jakes".

His television credentials include Kung-Fu (both past and present), Hawaii 5-0, Seinfeld, Chicago Hope, and scores of others. The man is VERSATILE!

Born in Minneapolis, and "becoming too Americanized," Hong was sent by his father to Hong Kong for a Chinese elementary education. He returned to the United States shortly before the outbreak of World War II and entered school in Minneapolis at the age of ten without knowing a word of English. He somehow caught up, and in college he studied civil engineering to please his parents. He started at the University of Minnesota and ultimately graduated from the University of Southern California.

His first stint in show business was performing in a nightclub comedy duo with his partner, Don Parker. His flair for comedy led to a spot as a contestant on "You Bet Your Life," where his impersonation of host Groucho Marx earned him a contract at a popular San Francisco club, Forbidden City. After college, he did work at a Los Angeles civil engineering job for a while. He quit the instant he was cast into three feature films, the first with Clark Gable in "Soldier of Fortune" and the third one being the 1955 hit "Love is a Many Splendored Thing" with William Holden and Jennifer Jones.
