He experienced a recent burst popularity which can be linked to two pop-cultural phenomena: First, after the debut of the Chuck Norris lever on ''Late Night With Creator/ConanOBrien'' (which produced a humorous out-of-context clip of ''Walker, Texas Ranger''). Second, after the formulation of the "[[Website/ChuckNorrisFacts Chuck Norris Fact Generator]]" (a spin-off of a similar generator for Creator/VinDiesel), a MemeticMutation wherein facts were given that depicted Norris as [[MemeticBadass an unstoppable force of badassery]], that quickly gained wide popularity. The concept reached AscendedMeme status in a campaign ad for Republican Mike Huckabee. He also [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=54NTH5x803Q appears in a commercial]] for ''WorldOfWarcraft'' as part of a series of celebrity endorsements of the show. To a montage of him delivering a CurbStompBattle to enemies, a narrator proudly proclaims "there are ten million people in the world of Warcraft, because Chuck Norris allows them to live!"

In spite his memetic popularity, Chuck has attracted his share of online criticism (primarily from supporters of LGBT rights) stemming from his vocal opposition to *deep breath* [[LongList secularism, gun control, illegal immigration, vaccinations, gay marriage, Barack Obama's presidency, the U.N., and]] [[EspeciallyZoidberg the Gay Eagle Scouts]] [?], among many other GrumpyOldMan tendencies[[note]]e.g. complaining about a pro-gay rally 'forcing their politics' onto others while he himself does pretty much the same thing[[/note]] that make Creator/AdamBaldwin look like [[Creator/CheechAndChong Cheech Marin]]. Anyway, he is a decent bloke if alarmingly reactionary.

One of his most recent roles was as Booker, a legendary lone-wolf mercenary in ''TheExpendables2'', a role that's memorable for not only having him appear alongside other 80's action stars, but for ''Chuck himself actually cracking a [[Website/ChuckNorrisFacts Chuck Norris joke]]'', officially turning them into an AscendedMeme.
