Tony Jaa enters the monkhood


Tony Jaa was ordained in a ceremony in Surin on Friday. Like a scene out of one of his movies, he rode atop an elephant to the ceremony, as depicted at the end of Ong-Bak.

Thai Rath has the story and photos.

His monastic name is Kitiposano, according to Urisara_NT, which means "elegant celebrity".

I am uncertain how long he will stay ordained. Thai Buddhist men routinely enter the monkhood at various auspicious times in their lives for short durations.

His mother told Korat Daily she hopes her 34-year-old son, real name Tatchakorn Yeerum (ทัชชกร ยีรัมย์) , formerly Panom Yeerum (พนม ยีรัมย์), finds a nice woman to marry afterward.

Update: Cinematical is in a tizzy over this latest move and Twitch lays a smackdown.

Please, no questions about where to download movies or subtitle files.
