Chuck Norris is an American martial artist, actor, film producer and screenwriter, who gained recognition for appearing in a number of action films, including ‘Way of the Dragon’ (1972), in which he starred alongside Bruce Lee. This was his second film appearance after an uncredited role in ‘The Wrecking Crew’ (1968).
He bagged a lead role in his fourth film, ‘Breaker! Breaker!’ (1977), and went on to offer a host of successful films such as ‘Good Guys Wear Black’ (1978), ‘The Octagon’ (1980), ‘An Eye for an Eye’ (1981), and ‘Lone Wolf McQuade’ (1983). While his first ‘Rambo’-inspired POW rescue film ‘Missing in Action’ (1984) received overwhelmingly negative reviews for being a rip off, it was a commercial success and started his long collaboration with ‘The Cannon Group’ which produced many similar movies including ‘Code of Silence’ (1985), ‘The Delta Force’ (1986), and ‘Firewalker’ (1986). Most of his later films were failures, including ‘Sidekicks’ (1992), ‘Hellbound’ (1994), ‘Top Dog’ (1995) and ‘Bells of Innocence’ (2003). Following an 8-year hiatus, he returned with the 25th top grossing film of 2012, ‘The Expendables’.
He achieved success on television with the CBS action series ‘Walker, Texas Ranger’ (1993-2001) and its spin-offs.
