While mingling with real actors at the Venice Film Festival, the junior Chan, Jaycee, took a subtle dig at his pops by touting his own talents:
“I’m starting to carve my own path,” he told The Associated Press. “I’ve made an art-house movie. … My range is greater. I’m not just making action movies. I’m trying many different things.”
I have heard that Jaycee’s latest performance in the Chinese-language film ‘The Sun Also Rises’/ Tai yang zhao chang sheng qi was quite laudable, something smells to me of resentment in his words.
Could it be that Jaycee also thinks his father is a disgraceful, talentless, Uncle Tam hack guilty of playing into demeaning stereotypes? Does he blame his father for perpetuating a stereotype that Asian men are only good for giving us a good laugh–er, raugh–and then a karate chop? Does he maybe, just maybe, have the balls to say so?
Or did Jackie just never hug him?
