On the May 10, 2016 segment of “Conan” Belgian actor, martial artist, screenwriter, film producer, and director Jean-Claude Van Damme joined Conan O’Brien on his show. Van Damme is best known for his roles in martial arts action films such as “Bloodsport” and “Street Fighter.”
O’Brien found one of Van Damme’s performances particularly memorable: his role as Kurt in the 1989 cult classic film, “Kickboxer.”
After some chitchat, O’Brien jumps into talking about his favorite scene in “Kickboxer” where Van Damme’s character is asked to dance and ends up in sort of dance-fight scene that audiences would always remember. After cutting to the original scene from the movie, Van Damme tells O’Brien that there will be a “Kickboxer 2” movie, to which O’Brien responds, “I’ll be first in line!”
It doesn’t take much to convince Van Damme to get up and perform what he can remember of his iconic dance scene, and from the looks of it, he hasn’t missed a step since 1989!
