First movie I ever worked on was called "The One Warrior" which you can find around as "The Dragon Warrior" which he was in and I highly recommend it as a so-bad-it's-good watch. He was the big fish for that low budget movie. A lot of us were in a little bit of awe because many of us grew up with Power Rangers. My buddy, in particular, was super thrilled about him because he was a huge Power Rangers fan growing up and JDF was also a devout Christian and my buddy was strongly religious as well, so he viewed him as a good role model. JDF was a very nice person, but at the wrap party he totally hooked up with someone in front of everybody and it greatly disappointed my friend. Was definitely a "never meet your heroes" situation.
He was nice, otherwise, just couldn't keep it in his pants I guess. He did say the most surreal feeling about his fame was when he stepped on an action figure of himself in the middle of the night that his kid played with.
He had also transitioned into an MMA career over a decade ago. I'm sure personal struggles were the culprit, but I wonder if he was suffering from any concussions he may have received in his MMA career.
