Hong Kong's favorite son Jackie Chan became the latest entertainer to receive one of Hollywood's most prestigious honors as he was the 2,205th person to receive a Star on The Hollywood Walk Of Fame. The biggest star of Asian cinema, Jackie Chan dominated the box office for 20 years in his native home, mixing his brand of action and comedy before taking America by storm with Newline Cinema's RUMBLE IN THE BRONX. Since then the work-a-holic Chan has never looked back juggling his movie schedule between America and Hong Kong. Jackie has since released a string of hits including the RUSH HOUR films as well as SHANGHAI NOON, THE TUXEDO and the upcoming SHANGHAI KNIGHTS. He is currently working on the films HIGHBINDERS and the remake AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 DAYS. 

In addition to this honor Jackie Chan has also been recognized by MTV with a Lifetime Achievement Award in 1995 and later in following years two additional MTV Movie Awards. In 1999 the Actor of the Year Award was bestowed upon him at the Hollywood Film Festival as well as two Best Actor Awards at the Golden Horse Film Festival. Hong Kong has also honored him with three Film Awards and in 2002 the stunt community presented to him the Taurus Honorary Award at the 2002 World Stunt Awards.

In 1988 Jackie established his own charitable foundation to help impoverished children, the disabled and the elderly under the moniker The Jackie Chan Charitable Foundation. The foundation also offers grants in the form of scholarships to students in performing arts and science.
