Back from the Jungle with Ninja Dixon and Christoph Klüppel

Die-hard cult-film blogger Ninja Dixon has just posted a five-part series of interviews with Christoph Klüppel, a musclebound German bodybuilder and actor who appeared in just over a half dozen Thai action films in the late 1980s and early '90s.

He worked with director "Philip" Chalong Pakdivijit on a number of movies, including The Lost Idol and In Gold We Trust, as well as Mission Hunter and Mission Hunter II with Chokchai Maliwan and Panna Rittikrai, and a young actor he can't quite remember – Tony Jaa. He also worked with such Thai action heroes as Sorapong Chatree and Krung Srivalai as well as slumming Hollywood stars like Jan-Michael Vincent, Erik Estrada and Sam Jones.

Just go read the interviews and be taken back to a bygone era of Thai action cinema:
