Jackie Chan sets two Guinness world records

"Most Stunts Performed by a Living Actor" and "Most Credits in One Movie"

We're one week away from the overseas release of Chinese Zodiac, Jackie Chan's 101st movie, and Chan has set two new world records in the process. Guinness World Records officially awarded Chan "Most Stunts Performed by a Living Actor" and "Most Credits in One Movie."

Chan said the following about the Guinness awards on Weibo (looks like it was run through Google translate):

I was awarded two Guinness Book of World Records, one of which is "Most Stunts Performed By A Living Actor." I felt I particularly deserved it today. As I look back to the past, so many times to do my utmost, I think it was very worthwhile, because they are records of the past. I can be very proud with them for posterity, saying with the audience that "This is Jackie Chan, Jackie Chan! This is forever!!"

Chan has 15 credits in Chinese Zodiac: writer, directer, actor, producer, executive producer, cinematographer, art director, unit production manager, catering coordinator, stunt coordinator, gaffer, composer, singer of the theme song, props, and stuntman. (It's like Bugs Bunny playing baseball, plus catering.)

If I'm not mistaken, Chan holds another Guinness World Record: Most Takes for a Single Scene. The movie was Dragon Lord (1982), and a shuttlecock sports sequence required around 2,900 takes to get right. I've included the scene after the cut.
