Born Carlos Ray Norris, Chuck Norris – as his name became – is one of the greatest martial artists / action movie stars there ever was. Best known perhaps for his television program Walker, Texas Ranger, Norris was first an accomplished martial artist and action movie star.
Chuck Norris was most notably introduced to international audiences fighting opposite Lee in Way of the Dragon (1972). Norris would go on to make an action movie career for himself as a leading star with roles in the 1970s with Breaker! Breaker!, Good Guys Wear Black, and A Force of One. However, in the 1980s and 1990s Norris really established himself as action movie elite with big name franchises like Missing in Action, Delta Force and action classics like Lone Wolf McQuade and Invasion USA.
