Mike Norris, the first-born son of Chuck Norris, hired a bodyguard after allegedly being poisoned while promoting his new movie Amerigeddon. At a screening for Amerigeddon in Columbus, Ohio, recently, Norris, 53, claims that someone in a gray suit rubbed poison on the back of his neck, causing him to become violently ill on his drive back to Dayton. Mike Norris won't say for sure that the stranger's actions were nefarious, just "strange and scary" enough for him to hire a bodyguard approved by his martial artist father, Chuck Norris.
After having acted in over two dozen films, Mike Norris is still more well-known as the son of Chuck Norris, a martial arts champion and actor who rose to fame in the 1972 martial arts action film Way of the Dragon as Bruce Lee's nemesis. Chuck Norris, 76, made his acting debut in 1963 when first-born son Mike Norris was only 6-years-old. Mike followed in his father's acting footsteps at the young age of 16 as a pizza skateboarder in the Chuck Norris martial arts film A Force One. He's also appeared in 26 other large- and small-screen movies before he decided to become a film director.
