Jean-Claude Van Damme. Cool name, Bad-ass, and martial arts film legend from late 80s-early 90s. Since then he hasn’t done much (besides some straight to DVD/Streaming films and various cameos). Van Damme is using that to his advantage for his new show on Amazon Prime.
Jean-Claude Van Damme stars as “Jean-Claude Van Damme”, a global martial arts and film sensation, mirroring his real life. Things change when we discuss his alter-ego when he goes by the name of Johnson. Johnson is a black ops specialist. There’s no better cover as a famous movie star when going undercover right? JCVD has been retired from the film and spy business until he runs into Vanessa (Kat Foster) an old lover at a trendy LA Ramen place. That’s when he decides to go back to the world of Johnson.
Strange? Sure. But this might be what Van Damme needs right about now.
‘Jean-Claude Van Johnson’ Pilot is streaming on Amazon now with the full season to come December 15, 2017.
