[[HeAlsoDid A lesser-known aspect of his career]] (at least in America) is that he is also a [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tgBcQA9A3zA professional singer]], having recorded many albums and often performing the {{Theme Song}}s for his movies (ex. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=29nd5P_KqKg Who Am I?]] and [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d6IYt2qMj1A I'll Make a Man Out of You]] in Disney's ''Disney/{{Mulan}}''). This is a little less surprising when you know that he originally trained for UsefulNotes/PekingOpera, which features acrobatic fight scenes. He also has his own AnimatedAdaptation, ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures.''

* ''Film/PoliceStory'' features some jaw-dropping amazing stunts (with no CGI!) and is sometimes called 'Glass Story', due to the ridiculous number of sugar glass panels that break in the final 20 minutes of so of the movie. It's also important to mention that it has ''three'' sequels and a spinoff, and two InNameOnly reboots. Also, Chan considers it his best action film. The sequels to this film are:

* CelebrityToons: ''WesternAnimation/JackieChanAdventures''. Jackie himself only worked on it as a producer, but the show itself is considered to be quite strong on it's own merits.

Jackie Chan (成龙), born Chan Kong-Sang (陈港生) on April 7, 1954, is, quite simply, Made of Awesome. He has hit the big time since being "discovered" by Hollywood in the mid-90s and films such as ''Film/RushHour'', ''Film/ShanghaiNoon'', ''Film/TheTuxedo'' and ''The Medallion'' have made him an American household name.

* ''Fist Of Fury'' and ''Film/EnterTheDragon'': Yes, Creator/BruceLee's last movie was also one of Jackie's first... as one of the [[{{Mook}} goons]] in the cave. [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7hu6NoRR7pg (Bruce snaps his neck.)]] Even earlier, in ''Fist of Fury'', Jackie was a stuntman, most notably standing in for the BigBad [[DisneyVillainDeath when he falls to his death]]. He recalled that Bruce Lee was a harsh taskmaster but very appreciative of hard work and could be quite apologetic if he accidentally hurt someone, including Chan.[[note]]Chan admits that he hadn't been hurt seriously, but played it up because it meant Bruce paid more attention to him.[[/note]] After said incident, rumors state he was promised to be in all of Bruce Lee's movies. Jackie Chan speaks about it [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U8CtOqJy6xM here.]]

*** ''Police Story 2'' (notable not just for the destruction of an actual building for the finale, but the outtakes showing ''something like forty cameras all lined up'' to ensure there was at least one good take.)

* IHaveManyNames: Besides the two names listed above, he has another lesser known stage Yuan Lou (元楼) [[note]]This name is given to him while he was part of the Seven Little Fortunes. Indeed, each of the Little Fortunes took a stage name with the surname "Yuan". In case you're wondering, Sammo Hung's was Yuan Long (元龙)[[/note]]. In addition, after finding out that his father had changed the family surname to "Chen" from "Fang", he took on another name: Fang Shi-long (房仕龙).
