Strombo's Not the Only CBC'er With an Amazing Jackie Chan Story

While spending a few days (and Shanghai Knights?) in Toronto last week, Jackie Chan made time for CBC News, CBC's Q, CBC Radio's Metro Morning.

(The action-movie legend has been known to keep powering through his own stunts, despite breaking his ankles, hips, ribs, neck, you name it. The pain of doing back-to-back media appearances is, clearly, nothing.)

But of all Chan's interviews, the one that stands out is a segment he filmed for George Stroumboulopoulos Tonight.

In it, Chan tells his "Best Story Ever," the day he met another film legend, Bruce Lee, on the set of Enter the Dragon.

Don't remember Chan in that kung-fu classic? He's in there, getting smashed upside the head by Lee himself. (Chan played the uncredited part, "Thug in Prison.")

And Chan's experience filming with the legend gave him the story of a lifetime.

Hear him tell it below:
