CBS Sunday Morning: ‘Actor James Hong: At 92. Still going strong’

If you’ve watched any television or movies in the past 70 years, you’ve probably seen actor James Hong at least once in your life, even if you may not have known who he was. In fact, he may be the most prolific English speaking American actor ever, having been in over 600 TV and movie credits to his name. CBS Sunday Morning did a nice profile on Hong recently:

“Over nearly seven decades, James Hong has racked up more film and TV credits than almost anyone. Even more impressive, the character actor did so while confronting demeaning stereotypes in Hollywood. Turner Classic Movies host Ben Mankiewicz talks with the constantly-working Hong about a career that began with entertaining U.S. troops during the Korean War, and extended to such treasured films as Chinatown and Big Trouble in Little China.”

My first recollection of seeing Hong was in the film Big Trouble in Little China. I remembered him also in Wayne’s World 2:

When you look at Hong’s IMDB page, I’m sure you’ll find something that you’ve seen him in – even if you never realized it!
