I remember watching the STREET FIGHTER movie as a kid and thinking,"Why in the hell is a Belgian actor playing an American hero?" Then the answer would come shortly after when he started kicking some major ass. Sadly, the magic of that film has worn off with age, but Jean-Claude Van Damme is just as cool as ever. Now we can expect him to pop up in the highly anticipated sequel, KUNG FU PANDA: THE KABOOM OF DOOM.

Also joining the cast are Victor Garber and Michelle Yeoh, all of which will play new masters. The cast is already incredibly star studded, so it's cool to see that they are adding all of these action vets to make the movie have the right sentiment. We certainly can't forget the recent announcement that Gary Oldman had joined the cast.

I really like the idea of JCVD in the KUNG FU PANDA franchise because I feel confident they will run with that, and do some really creative stuff to make the character fit him. The first KUNG FU PANDA was a surprisingly enjoyable film, and I'm certainly excited for the sequel.
