Episode 092 - Actor Special: Jean-Claude Van Damme

This week we hit you with a roundhouse kick to the head with the ‘Muscles from Brussels’ himself Jean-Claude Van Damme, another iconic action star of the late 80s early 90s. Van Damme’s movies brought action to another level as he split his way out of trouble and then kicked the person in the head for the trouble they caused, movies such as Universal Soldier, Time Cop, Wrong Bet and of course the grossly underrated Street fighter were but a few of the standouts that graced our screens and he still is up there kicking high and even coming to us with a reality TV show based around his life, so in the entertainment world Van Damme is still a king!

This week we are tackling the Terminator himself Arnold Schwarzenegger. So many great movies have been brought to the forefront by the huge Austrian, action movies that have defined a time and a genre with the likes of Total Recall, Conan: The Barbarian, Predator, True Lies and of course the Terminator Series.
