At 91, he may well be Hollywood’s hardest working performer with more than 600 acting and voice-over credits over a seven-decade career.

James Hong is finally getting a star on Hollywood’s Walk of Fame.

He started out playing Asian characters on old TV shows like “Peter Gunn.”

Hong’s movie resume includes films like “Flower Drum Song,” “Blade Runner” and “Wayne’s World 2.”

On TV he’s been in everything from “Friends” to “Hawaii Five-O.”

Another Asian actor, Daniel Dae Kim, launched a go-fund me campaign August 5th to raise the $50-thousand required to secure Hong a star. It raised $55,000 in three days.
