Biography

Passionné d'arts martiaux depuis son enfance, il a commencé à étudier le wushu (art traditionnel en Chine) à l'âge de quatorze ans. À dix-huit ans, il remporte le championnat mondial de cette discipline en Chine, et va alors rentrer dans le milieu du cinéma. Après un petit rôle dans Mortal Kombat : Destruction finale, il sera choisi en 1999 pour interpréter le personnage de Dark Maul dans Star Wars, épisode I : La Menace fantôme, de George Lucas. L'immense succès du personnage l'a rendu célèbre dans le milieu des fans de la saga Star Wars.

Après avoir joué la doublure du cavalier sans tête dans Sleepy Hollow (1999) de Tim Burton et le Crapaud dans X-Men de Bryan Singer en 2000 (où il fait d'ailleurs un clin d'œil à Dark Maul avec une barre de fer), Ray Park participa en 2006 au téléfilm What We Do Is Secret, dans lequel il a pour la première fois un vrai rôle d'acteur, et au long-métrage parodique Fanboys, produit par Kevin Spacey, dans lequel il fait une apparition clin-d'œil à son personnage fétiche, Dark Maul, en interprétant un garde de la villa Skywalker qui se bat avec deux bâtons télescopiques.

En 2008, il interpréta le rôle de Chuck Norris dans La Légende de Bruce Lee (épisodes 35-36).

En 2009, il rejoint le casting de la série Heroes (Saison 4) dans le rôle d'Edgar, un personnage armé de couteaux pouvant bouger à une vitesse élevée. Il interprète aussi le rôle de Snake Eyes dans le film G.I. Joe.

En 2010, il est au casting du film sorti directement en DVD The King of Fighters, l'adaptation du jeu vidéo éponyme, aux côtés de Maggie Q.

En 2011, il obtient un rôle dans la série Nikita, où il retrouve Maggie Q.

En octobre 2016, lors du Super Megafest Comic-Con du Massachusetts, il est arrêté pour avoir agressé une femme.

Dix ans après, Tallahassee, Columbus, Wichita et Little Rock font toujours équipe et luttent ensemble pour survivre face aux zombies, qui avec le temps ont évolué : parmi les zombies simples sont apparus les « Homer », en surpoids et simples d'esprit, les « Hawking », capables de stratégie, les « ninjas », rapides et silencieux, mais surtout les « T-800 », plus féroces et résistants aux balles. Le groupe trouve un temps refuge dans la Maison-Blanche. Mais des tensions apparaissent dans le groupe : Columbus et Wichita vivent leur petite vie de couple jusqu'à ce que Columbus demande la main de Wichita, et Tallahassee « couve » Little Rock comme un père, alors que cette dernière, devenue jeune adulte, a des envies d'ailleurs et d'être avec des gens de son âge. Une nuit, Wichita et Little Rock décident de partir à bord de la voiture blindée et surarmée de Tallahassee.

L'univers de Star Wars tourne autour des tentatives de séparation d'un groupe favorable à un empire de la République galactique. Pour ce faire, les séparatistes entraînent des dirigeants de la République dans des affaires ingérables grâce aux manigances du Chancelier Suprême Palpatine, qui dit servir la démocratie tout en étant favorable à un empire. Pour maintenir la paix en place, les Jedi combattent les ennemis de la République, mais ceux-ci doivent faire face aux Seigneurs Sith (dont Palpatine est membre, sous le nom de Dark Sidious), tous sont sensibles à la Force, une capacité d'origine physiologique qui permet à leurs détenteurs d'acquérir certains pouvoirs surnaturels.

In the near future, weapons master James McCullen (Christopher Eccleston) has created a nanotech-based weapon - nanomites designed to devour metal and other materials, capable of destroying anything from tanks to cities. The nanobots can only be stopped by activating the kill switch. His company M.A.R.S. (Military Armaments Research Syndicate) sells four warheads to NATO, and NATO troops led by American soldiers Duke (Channing Tatum) and Ripcord (Marlon Wayans) are tasked with delivering the warheads. Their convoy is ambushed by the Baroness (Sienna Miller), whom Duke recognizes to be his ex-fiancee Ana Lewis. Duke and Ripcord are rescued by Scarlett (Rachel Nichols), Snake Eyes (Ray Park), Breaker (Saïd Taghmaoui) and Heavy Duty (Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje). They take the warheads to The Pit, G.I. Joe's command center in Egypt, and upon arriving rendezvous with the head of the G.I. Joe Team, General Hawk (Dennis Quaid). Hawk takes command of the warheads and excuses Duke and Ripcord, only to be convinced to let them join his group, after Duke reveals that he knows the Baroness.

At a museum in Boston, Rugal Bernstein steals three relics: The Kagura Mirror, the Yagami Necklace and the Kusanagi Sword. He uses them to disappear into a dimensional portal to awaken the mythical entity known as the Orochi, which would grant him limitless powers. However, the sword is revealed to be a fake - thus, Rugal's quest is delayed. Mai Shiranui is told by an injured Chizuru Kagura that the whereabouts of the real sword are with Saisyu Kusanagi, who is housed at a mental institution. She is also warned that she alone must defeat Rugal and her boyfriend Iori Yagami should not be involved. At the institution, Mai meets a catatonic Saisyu and his son Kyo, but Iori's presence suddenly breaks Saisyu's catatonic state, and the elder Kusanagi threatens to kill Iori before losing consciousness and dying.

In 1799, New York City police constable Ichabod Crane (Johnny Depp) is facing imprisonment for going against traditional methods and favoring forensic investigation techniques, such as autopsies, considered unorthodox and unimportant at the time. Ichabod submits to deployment with his bag of tools to the Westchester County hamlet of Sleepy Hollow, New York, which has been plagued by a series of brutal slayings in which the victims have been found decapitated: Peter Van Garrett (Martin Landau), a wealthy farmer and landowner; his son Dirk; and the widow Emily Winship. Arriving in Sleepy Hollow, Crane is informed by the town's elders that the killer is not of flesh and blood, but rather an undead headless Hessian mercenary from the American Revolutionary War who rides at night on a massive black steed in search of his missing head.

The evil emperor Shao Kahn, along with his generals, Motaro, Sheeva, Rain, and Ermac, opens a portal from Outworld to Earthrealm and has reclaimed his queen Sindel, who is Kitana's long-dead mother. Earthrealm is therefore in danger of being absorbed into Outworld within six days, a fate which Liu Kang and the others must fight to prevent. Kahn fights and quickly kills Johnny Cage during the confrontation by snapping his neck, and the remaining Earthrealm warriors must regroup and think of an idea to defeat Shao Kahn. An emotionally guilt-ridden Sonya Blade enlists the help of her old partner, Jax, while Kitana and Liu Kang search for a Native American shaman named Nightwolf, who seemingly knows the key to defeating Kahn. On the way, they run afoul of the cyborg Smoke. Kitana and Liu Kang dispatch him with the aid of Sub-Zero, but Scorpion suddenly appears, attacks Sub-Zero, and kidnaps Kitana.
