Tony Jaa, for those who don’t know, is a Thai martial artist, actor, action choreographer, director, monk, and world-renowned stuntman. He is best known for his involvement in the Ong Bak films and in James Wan’s Furious 7.
He has the acting chops and clearly the rigorous martial arts experience to
give a veteran assassin like John Wick a run for his money. It would also be great to see some diverse casting in the main villain department for a change, and Jaa would even be able to help out in overall stunt work for the next film (not that the John Wick team needs any help there).
Jaa began training in the art of Muay Thai when he was only 10 years old, and has been doing stunt work professionally ever since. It would be great to see Wick square off with someone as equally talented in Gun Fu as himself, and Jaa definitely seems to have the discipline for the job.
