It’s hard to hear the voice of the Muscles from Brussels himself, Jean-Claude Van Damme, and not imagine the action super star uppercutting the air. As it turns out, that’s probably what he’s actually doing.
In this exclusive behind the scenes featurette from the upcoming Blu-ray and DVD release of “Kung Fu Panda 2,” you get a peak at what it was like for Van Damme while he recorded his voice track for the film.
Van Damme plays Master Croc, a reptilian martial arts expert, who uses his tail as one of his primary weapons. The actor expressed some concern about the character since crocodiles have such short limbs. How could the animated character portray the full range of Van Damme’s ferocious moves?
The clip is raw Van Damme, and that is always worth a look. He takes some time to explain how he came to be one of the first martial arts super stars and how his status as the world’s first person to perform splits between two chairs inspired Master Croc’s moves.
Be sure to check out the entire clip above.
“Kung Fu Panda 2” hits Blu-ray and DVD on December 13.
