Jackie Chan Is Dying To Star In A Musical Like ‘Mamma Mia’

Jackie Chan is ready to karate-chop his way into a different type of acting… musicals.

The 63-year-old actor, best known for his butt-kicking roles, sat down with Stephen Colbert on “The Late Show” and revealed he’s classically trained in music, fighting and running while holding a cup full of tea without spilling it.

Chan told Colbert he’s sick of being type-cast as policemen in every film offer, “Can I have something different like ‘Mamma Mia’? Or ‘La La Land’?”

Chan added, “I’m an actor who can fight, not a fighter who can act.”
