Fil-Am martial artist Ernie Reyes Jr. to host kung fu movies


SAN FRANCISCO—Actor and martial artist Ernie Reyes Jr. will host Myx TV’s throwback Asian movie showcase, “Movie So Good.” Now in its third season, the show offers comedy, action and combat from the kung fu genre’s most beloved titles. “Movie So Good” airs on Sundays at 9/8c.

Reyes is a Fil-Am action choreographer, stunt performer and filmmaker. He has shared the silver screen with Hollywood greats like Arnold Schwarzenegger, Harrison Ford and Jackie Chan, with starring roles in “Surf Ninjas,” the second “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles,” “Rush Hour 2,” “The Rundown,” “Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of Crystal Skull” and more.

Blockbuster films like “Avatar” and “Alice in Wonderland” have immortalized his motion capture stunts and fight scene choreography. As a legendary fighter, Reyes has a professional fight record of 3-0 in Strikeforce, one of the world’s largest mixed martial arts organizations.

Coached by his father, Ernie Reyes Sr., Ernie Reyes Jr. became the youngest child in the history of martial arts to be rated in the adult professional forms division. At age six he joined his father’s internationally famous “West Coast Demo Team,” hailed as No. 1 in the world.

“Ernie Reyes, Jr. is a barrier-breaking martial artist action star and we are proud to welcome him as the host of our audience’s favorite movie series, ‘Movie So Good,’” said Joy Bovatsek, head of Myx TV programming. “Having him onboard is an exciting step forward for the series, which makes the season bigger and bolder than ever before.”

    He started with Gil Gerard in the early 1980s TV Series “Sidekick” when he was just a kid. I’m surprised that wasn’t mentioned anywhere in the article.
