Al Leong

AlLeong_2Albert “Al” Leong was born September 30, 1952  in St. Louis, Missouri, and grew up in Los Angeles, California. He made his name as a stuntman and actor. Characterized by his impressive martial arts skills that include Northern Shaolin Kung Fu, Tae Kwon Do, Kali,& Jujutsu, long wavy hair, and a prominent Fu Manchu moustache, he has had a number of small but memorable roles as a henchman in some of the most popular action films as well as his appearance in Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure as Genghis Khan.

al3His credits include Lethal Weapon, Die Hard, Joshua Tree, Big Trouble in Little China, The Scorpion King, and They Live, and a recurring role on the first season of the TV series 24.

In 2003, Leong lampooned himself as well as the Hollywood tradition of actor and director ‘reels’ by starring in screenwriter Dave Callaham’s “Writer’s Reel.” In the five-minute short film, Leong portrayed Callaham going through a typical day in the life of a writer. The ‘reel’ was accepted into a number of short film festivals.

As a stuntman, Leong was involved with the production of numerous films including The Golden Child, Last Action Hero, Roland Emmerich’s Godzilla, Tim Burton’s Planet of the Apes, and Daredevil. He also has made appearances on several television shows such as Knight Rider, The A-Team, Renegade, The Greatest American Hero, Magnum, P.I., The Twilight Zone, T. J. Hooker, MacGyver, That ’70s Show, and HBO’s Deadwood. He directed the low-budget film Daddy Tell Me A Story.
