Jackie Chan’s Son Wants His Own Identity

 Jackie Chan’s son doesn’t want to be an action star like his father.

While “Rush Hour 3” was another box-office hit for Chan this summer, his 24-year-old son, Jaycee, was mixing with the arty crowd at the Venice Film Festival.

With a major role in “The Sun Also Rises,” a Chinese-language movie that competed for the top Golden Lion prize in Venice, Chan was considered for acting honors alongside the likes of Adrien Brody and Michael Caine.

Neither Chan nor the film won any prizes, but his appearance highlighted his desire to chart a course distinct from his father’s.

“I’m starting to carve my own path,” he told The Associated Press. “I’ve made an art-house movie. … My range is greater. I’m not just making action movies. I’m trying many different things.”

Chan has been in one film that resembles the work of his father: “Invisible Target,” a frantic flurry of fight scenes and daredevil stunts in which he played a rookie police officer.

In a recent blog entry on his Web site, Jackie Chan described his joy when Jaycee surprised him with a birthday cake on his private jet.

The 53-year-old actor said he doesn’t see Jaycee very often, and the two didn’t talk much on the plane after the birthday surprise.

“I know we care about each other,” he wrote. “It just isn’t always necessary to be expressed with words. So Jaycee and I just sat side by side reading newspapers and it was very comfortable.”
