Jackie Chan’s most serious injury, a skull fracture on the set of the 1986 action-comedy "Armour of God" that nearly killed him, came after a little drinking and stunting.
Jackie Chan was sick and tired of trying to cross over into American movies. The martial arts wonder and ex-Bruce Lee stuntman was a superstar in his native China, but his attempts at going Hollywood in films like Big Brawl (1980), The Cannonball Run (1981), and The Protector (1985) barely registered with stateside audiences. “Nobody knew who this little Chinese guy was that spoke no English,” Chan told Yahoo Entertainment during a recent Role Recall interview (watch clip above).

George Miller was a working ER doctor when he set off on making his first movie, the independently financed Mad Max. The actioner became of the most profitable films of all time, launched Mel Gibson’s career, and lead to three sequels, including last year’s box-office hit Mad Max: Fury Road, which earned Miller his first Best Director Oscar nomination. In between his work on the original Mad Max trilogy (which also included 1981’s Road Warrior and 1983’s Beyond Thunderdome) and Fury Road, Miller helmed a couple adult dramas (1987’s Witches of Eastwick and 1992’s Lorenzo’s Oil) and a few projects that couldn’t be further from the bloodbaths of apocalyptic Max-land: the family flicks Babe: Pig in the City (1998), Happy Feet (2006), and Happy Feet 2 (2011). Highlights: Related: Director’s Reel: Spike Lee on the Prescience of ‘Do the Right Thing,’ the 'Mockery’ of Denzel’s 'Malcolm X’ Oscar Loss, and More Mad Max (1979) Miller is the first to admit that he didn’t have a tight grip on what filmmaking entailed when he shot his debut.
In her latest film, Trumbo, Lane plays Cleo, full-time mom and recreational juggler who also happens to be the very faithful wife to Bryan Cranston’s blacklisted screenwriter Dalton Trumbo. Her Outsiders co-star Tom Cruise, who performed all that slick bottle-twirling in Cocktail.) And in our latest edition of Role Recall (above), Lane shared colorful stories from her impressive body of work, including the times she got in trouble for rehearsing on Stains and badly hurt her neck during a love scene on Unfaithful.

Killers come and killers go, but there’s never been a horror movie villain like Freddy Krueger, and there’s never been a horror movie star like Robert Englund.
The 79-year-old known for his All-American good looks, everyman appeal, and smart, authoritative characters has been a constant force in American film from the ‘70s (The Sting, All the President’s Men) to the '80s (The Natural, Out of Africa) up through the '90s (Sneakers, Indecent Proposal) and beyond, even as he’s gotten choosier with roles and devotes much of his time overseeing the world’s preeminent showcase for independent cinema, the Sundance Film Festival. In our latest episode of Role Recall, which you can watch above, Redford reminisces about five of his most memorable parts, including how traded places with Butch Cassidy co-star Paul Newman, hid a skiing injury on the set of The Sting, and risked infuriating fans of the novel The Natural for the sake of a happy ending. It’s hard to imagine, given how similar their screen legacies feel now, but Paul Newman was a much bigger star than Redford when the pair teamed up for this Oscar-winning Western, having starred in classics like Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, The Hustler, and Cool Hand Luke.

In 2005, Hilary Swank became only the fourth actress ever — and first in more than a half-century — to win Academy Awards on her first two nominations (the first three were Luise Rainer, Helen Hayes, and Vivien Leigh). Not only that, but she won for two lead roles (Boys Don’t Cry and Million Dollar Baby), and over a span of only five years. It was a dramatic accomplishment for the Nebraska native, who famously said while accepting her second Oscar, “I’m just a girl from a trailer park who had a dream.” Swank, 40, is once again in awards contention for the Tommy Lee Jones-directed period drama The Homesman, which, like Boys Don’t Cry, brings her back to her home state (at least in setting). She plays a pioneer who helps transport three troubled women across dangerous and desolate terrain from Nebraska to Iowa, with the help of Jones’s expectedly grizzled claim jumper.
