    Jim Kelly, 'Enter the Dragon' actor, dies at 67

    12 hrs ago
    Jim Kelly, best known for his work in martial arts movies of the 1970s, has died after a battle with cancer at 67. Kelly's first notable role was in Bruce Lee's 1973 classic, "Enter the Dragon." Though his character was known simply as "Williams," Kelly's 6'2" frame, stellar Afro, and wisecracking demeanor let him transition to starring roles through the '70s, in films like "Black Belt Jones" and "Three the Hard Way." He later became a ranked tennis player. Told "It is defeat that you must learn to prepare for," in "Enter the Dragon," Kelly responds, "When it comes, I won't even notice ... I'll be too busy looking good." Amen. [Source]

    WOW! What a shock. Jim Kelly was my first real crush. Actor, tennis player, martial arts expert, plus cool and good looking to boot. He was very versatile.

    May he rest in peace.

    Oh man, does that take me back. Yeah, I remember that scene and the movie (one of my favorites from back in the day). I'll admit, it looks real lame now (watching better martial-art scenes in movies that came years afterwards besides getting around to actually studying martial-art myself in the '80s). Still, watching it now brings back fond memories of how I thought that sh*t looked so kool when I first saw that movie in my teenage-years. Also the scene where he's boppin' through the airport with the "THREE THE HARD WAY" theme playing in the background had me sometimes fantasizing back then about boppin' down the street rockin' an all black leather-suit with a black turtle-neck and dark pair of shades. LOL
