    So many people think these two men are related, but on the dragon dvd, linda lee caldwell makes it clear that the are not related. Why do people think they are related, becausse of their last name? Or am I misinformed, and if so could you tell how they are related? :confused:

    They aren't related. That they both are named Lee is a coincidence. Brandon Lee was offered the part of his dad in Dragon, but turned it down for some reason, and J.S. Lee got the part instead. Brandon later died in a filming accident on the set, so no Dragon 2 or Crow 2 :(

    Too bad :(

    Brandon had the capability to match his father's charisma.....

    Brandon was a really nice actor and he seemed to me to be a man of principles too, hence why he didn't want to take up the role of his father in Dragon.

    Well, I learned on a Bruce Lee documentary(Death By Misadventure), while Brandon was being interviewed...he said he didn't want to play as his dad in 'Dragon' because well...while Brandon was thinking on how to word it out, he had this unsure look on his face, then he says..."I didn't want to play the role as my father because...well...kissing your own mom, I mean that's..."

    You get it, right? Then after that, he said something about he might have took the role as his father if it came at a later time. Watch the documentary and you'll learn more.

    In any case, my english teacher in high school(after seeing 'Kiss of the Dragon'), she thought Jet Li was related to Bruce Lee.

    jet li and bruce lee are related too! i think people are just ignorant on alot of topics. most non-kung fuers will probably tell you brucee lee died of heavy drug use like all 60's rock stars.

    he didn't????
    I liked Brandon Lee because he was a good actor.
    I liked Bruce Lee because he was a good martial artist.
    Brandon wasn't as good as his dad in martial arts (but he didn't live as long).
    But Bruce lee was a crap actor compared to his son.
