his filmography

If you look at George Cheung's filmography, he's done TONS of roles as gangsters, imperial soldiers, Communist soldiers, yakuza, etc. in that he would be wielding a gun, but for single episodes of TV shows (many of which are NOT available on DVD). Again a well known character actor whose IMFDB actor page will NEVER fully represent just how many guns he's handled in his career. MoviePropMaster2008 01:45, 14 June 2009 (UTC)

Coincidentally, I was just watching an episode of The A-Team yesterday, where he played a Vietnamese officer. I thought he looked familiar...he was playing basically the same role he played in Rambo II. -MT2008 02:32, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
Well he has played Imperial Japanese officers as well, so I figure Nambu? Well I can't say until I've seen the episode. BTW, Also he's played either a Chinese, Korean or Japanese ambassador multiple times. They LOVE casting him as an ambassador..... hahahaha. MoviePropMaster2008 04:31, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
Yep...while working on my ongoing Seven Days project, he played the Chinese ambassador in the two-part episode where the crazy General tries to start a war between China and the U.S. (the one that had the good images of the XM177 look-a-likes). Just noticed that from looking at IMDB, too... -MT2008 05:09, 14 June 2009 (UTC)
He also played one of the Triad gangsters in Rush Hour 3 in a blink-and-you-miss-it cameo.
Didn't he play a good guy (the driver, I think) in the beginning of Rush Hour 1? --Funkychinaman 15:05, 7 May 2010 (UTC)

His character in First Blood Part II

Just to clarify, Cheung's character in Rambo: First Blood Part II is named Tay. This is how he is identified in both the credits and on IMDb. "Vihn" is another Vietnamese officer played by someone named William Ghent. I insist this because Cheung's character being named Vihn is a really persistent misconception and (although I may be misremembering) I changed this once before but someone changed it back. - Kooshmeister
