    Wait, so he trained Chuck Norris? Ok... If Chuck Norris can do a number of push-ups that amount to all of them, imagine what Van Damme can do. :|

    Some new info here, and BTW; Heat Vision is the channel name, not the other film he left, as I, presume we all thought... ahem. If u wanna see a good film with him as the boss at the end, watch 'Universal Soldier 4!' He's hardly in it but it reminded me of 'Three days of the condor' - another great film that people sleep on!

    I'm pretty sure Predator would't have been the same hit if JC vD would have played the predator instead of the fabulous monster they've created and that brought so much mystique and credibility to it. I've seen a short clip of how it would've looked with J. C in the costume and it looked quite pathetic i must say! So for this time i'm glad JC didn't took the part!

    I have a different look at why he left predator. Everything he said is true. But they didn't want a safer outfit. The original predator customer looked stupid AF. They actually stopped production to create a new character. Remember JCVD, as he said, was thought of nothing more than a gloridlfied stuntman.
    Kevin Peter Hall became the man under the new suit and he was HUGE!

    Van Damme is really a nice guy (and I like him a lot). I think that was good for him and for Predator movie...he's 1.77m tall and the predator actor ( Bryan Prince) was taller. That worked great, since Arnold is 1.88m. Bryan was 2.07m

    He's such a fuggin liar that he's beyond pathetic. He didn't leave on his own. Van Damme was removed from the film. When compared to Schwarzenegger...Weathers...and Ventura (actors known for their bodybuilding) it was obvious a more physically imposing man was needed to make the creature appear threatening. was reported that Van Damme constantly complained about the monster suit being too hot and caused him to pass out. He allegedly had also repeatedly voiced reservations about only appearing on camera in the suit. Additionally, the original design for the Predator was felt to be too cumbersome and difficult to manage in the jungle and even with a more imposing actor did not provoke enough fear. JCVD was promptly replaced by Kevin Peter Hall. Do the research folks. Don't always believe what you see on YT. Moreso when the star is being publically interviewed. It's a pride thing cause he can't publicly admit he was fired. JCVD is in no way...shape...or form intimidating. He is 5'10" . Whereas Hall was 7'2". He's def an excellent bullshitter though.
