Berry Gordy' s The Last Dragon was a karate flick featuring Taimak, Vanity and Julius J Carry III as the villian Shonuff. It is hands down one of my top ten most favoritest movies ever. I have seen it at least a million times. When I was a kid watching it, I use to wish I WAS Bruce Leroy.
The first time I visited New York I found Taimak on the network website Myspace and we made arrangments to shoot together. Then my camera got stolen and that shoot never happened. After my permenant move to NY, I contacted him again and we set up a meeting at his martial arts gym in manhattan. I almost died....I was meeting BRUCE LEROY. lol
Taimak journeyed to the Bronx where I was staying and we shot. We did two more sessions and one was with sexy video vixen Rita G, who is best know for her appearance on Howard Stern and Kanye West's Flashing Lights video.
Taimak is a really cool dude and at 40-something looks absolutely amazing. He has done martial arts choreography for movies and pop stars like, Madonna. Currently he is a fitness expert and has developed a wellness program for young people and is bringing it to communities all over the states. He's still acting. Sony Pictures has taken on producing a remake of the Last Dragon featuring Samuel L Jackson as "Shonuff". Taimak will also appear in the movie as well. Check out his website to be updated with the projects he's working on and purchase his fitness DVD at http://www.dynasty8.com/. He really does have that "glow"
