Michael Jai White may play tough guys in movies like Spawn, The Dark Knight, and Black Dynamite, but that's mostly because he's actually a badass in real life. He holds black belts in everything from Tae Kwon Do to Kobudo to Goju Ryu, and martial arts and their disciplines are a philosophy and a way of life for him.
 
Which is one reason that he's back playing Jackson "Jax" Briggs again for director Kevin Tancharoen, this time in the Mortal Kombat: Legacy series. He first played the character opposite Jeri Ryan's Sonya Blade in Mortal Kombat: Rebirth, bringing flesh and blood to the video game character. Now he's back and badder than ever. Check out our full interview with Michael Jai White below, and be sure to see what star Jeri Ryan had to say about the series as well.
