Tony Jaa Is The Man!

I know we love all Asian men and I wanted to bring your attention to this wonderful, talented Thai actor, Tony Jaa. You might remember his body, err face, in the action flick Ong Bak, which came out in 2003. This 35-year-old started out as a stunt man in movies like Mortal Kombat: Annihilation before starring in Ong Bak. He’s been trained in Taekwondo, Aikido, Ju-Jitsu, Muay Thai and Muay Boran, an ancient form of Muay Thai. As great as this man is, I was only able to find out a few bits of non-movie related information. He was born in Northeastern Thailand to elephant herders and that on May 28, 2010 he became a Buddhist monk. If you are interested in seeing more of him, here is a list of his movies that I was able to find on Netflix:

Ong Bak (2003)
The Bodyguard (2004)
The Protector (2005)
The Bodyguard 2 (2007)
Ong Bak 2 (2008)
Ong Bak 3 (2010)
He is currently filming The Protector 2 in Thailand.

  1. I absolutely love Tony Jaa and am a huge fan! I have all his films (some harder to get than others b/c they’re Thai). He’s completely HoT and a great stunt man!!!

    • I agree BiFan! I only have the Ong Bak series but I’m glad that Netflix and other movie streaming companies are starting to realize how great Asian films are so that I can see his other work.

  2. The Ong Bak series really changes from movie to movie, becoming more spiritual and psychological. I really enjoyed them though.

    I had no idea Tony was so much older than he looks. His features have matured a lot since the beginning of his career.

    A sight I will NEVER forget his him in a loincloth, leaping from elephant to elephant. Definitely something to see!
