      Highest Rated: 78% Dealing with Dad (2022)

      Birthday: Not Available

      Birthplace: China

      Dana Lee's most memorable roles are those of villains. This trend began early in his career with his portrayal of the sadistic Vietnamese Captain Kinh in "Rambo: First Blood Part II." In this film, Rambo (Sylvester Stallone) returns to Vietnam to rescue American POWs, but Kinh and his men stand in the way (only for so long, of course). Lee appeared in another popular franchise as the general in "Lethal Weapon 4." It was a small role, with Lee capitalizing on his venerable gray-haired presence to convey the image of a powerful man not to be trifled with. Lee played a similar role, but with comic effect, as Cheung in the drug-addled action/comedy "Pineapple Express." In this hilarious buddy comedy, Lee's character is the head of an Asian syndicate engaged in a bloody (but rather incompetent) drug war with the film's main antagonist, Ted Jones (with Gary Cole wonderfully hamming up the role). In the lesser known (and underrated) police thriller "Dark Blue," Lee's character Henry Kim, the owner of a corner grocery, at first appears to be a sympathetic villain, but eventually this too turns out to be another criminal role.
