Last week, I was looking at the my DVR’s electronic programming guide and wondering why the hell Time’s former Man-of-the-Year David Ho was going to be on the new Tonight Show with Conan O’Brien. Then I saw Steven Ho listed as one of the guests and realized that Dr. Ho’s first name was David, not Steven.
To be honest, before Steven Ho’s appearance on The Tonight Show, I had never heard of him. The stunt coordinator to the stars, he has trained actors including Brad Pitt, Leonardo DiCaprio, James Franco and Tobey McGuire and was once Jet Li’s stunt double. Conan and Steven go through a long sequence of coordinating a series of stunts for a prolonged fight scene, which turns out to be pretty funny; when you see Steven standing next to Conan, Steven looks short, until you realize that Conan is a freakishly tall 6’4″.
