‘Rush Hour’ TV Show Casts ‘Tekken’ Star Jon Foo

CBS has found one of their two lead actors for the Rush Hour pilot, bringing on Jon Foo to play Detective Lee, the same character played by Jackie Chan in the hit Rush Hour movie trilogy. The show has yet to cast the cocky LAPD detective Carter, originally played by Chris Tucker. Much like the film franchise, the show will follow these two cops, forced to pair up when Lee gets assigned to a case in Los Angeles.

Detective Lee is described by Deadline as, "a dedicated professional and master martial artist, a man of few words who knows how to get the job done." Series creator Bill Lawrence revealed last month that the show will follow a new plot with the same types of characters. He also hinted that he may not hire a martial artist to play Lee, but, now, that is not the case.
