When Bruce moved back to the States he didn’t jump into acting right away. He had some personal growing to do—teaching Kung Fu, getting married, baby making and creating his own martial arts style, called Jeet Kune Do. But it wasn’t long before Bruce caught the acting bug again, co-starring in The Green Hornet as Kato, a badass Mister Belvedere who wasn’t the one to fu*k with!
But after a year of being hot, playing Kato, The Green Hornet was cancelled. The years that followed were filled with small roles, Bruce all the while determined to make it, like Daenerys Targaryen working hard to get her hands on that damn throne. He even had to deal with that shady queen, David Carradine snatching the lead role on the hit series Kung Fu. The show’s producers said they went with David because Bruce had a heavy accent. Guess they never heard of Ricky Ricardo or Donald Duck!
