If the Amazon crop of pilots seemed especially strong this past summer, they tend to agree with you. Not only does our rebooted version of The Tick now have a series order, but so too will Jean-Claude Van Damme’s Jean-Claude Van Johnson live to fight another day, while Kathryn Hahn will continue to express her love of Dick. There is nothing funny about that, stop snickering.

This is What Jean-Claude Van Damme Looked Like in 'Predator'

'Predator' is not only one of Arnold Schwarzenegger's best movies, it's one of the best sci-fi/action movies of all time, putting the musclebound action hero up against an unstoppable alien hunter. The design of the Predator is so iconic and the overall film's reputation so strong that many people don't realize that this was originally a very different movie. So different that Jean-Claude Van Damme was originally supposed to play the alien bad guy!

Mr. Van Damme, known for his incredible physicality, but has topped it all. He's gone and pulled off "the most epic of splits." This you absolutely need to see to believe.

Released in 1988, 'Bloodsport' gave Jean-Claude Van Damme one of his first starring roles and introduced the world to his insane action skills.
