For nearly two years, I’ve been writing about the campaign to get actor James Hong a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Well, it happened today.
Hong, 93, received his star following a campaign that was started by actor Daniel Dae Kim (Hawaii Five-0), who helped raise the $55,000 necessary for the star.
Remember, Hong, who has appeared in more than 600 TV and film roles, studied civil engineering at USC. Hong worked for L.A. County as a road engineer for seven years before becoming a full-time actor.
Among the other Trojans who have a star are Jerry Buss, Ward Bond, Tom Selleck, John Wayne and of course, professor Frank Baxter.https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js
