He was the karate teacher of father-son actors Steve McQueen and Chad McQueen. The elder McQueen encouraged Norris to pursue a career in movies and television; allegedly, he told Chuck: "If you can't do anything else, there's always acting."

Chuck Norris and Clu Gulager in Der Bulldozer (1979)

His father Ray was killed in a car accident, shortly after cancer surgery. Part of Ray's throat and chin were removed; a tube was inserted in his trachea to help him breathe. Ray was thrown out of his car in the wreck, and the tube came out. Ray suffocated on the ground because no one at the accident site was aware of the tube.

His voice and drama coach was Jonathan Harris, of Lost in Space (1965) fame. Harris "taught him how to speak," by putting his fingers in Norris's mouth, and stretching the mouth wide open. Chuck names Jonathan as the only man in the world who could get away with doing that to him... which Harris was always proud of.

Chuck Norris, Camila Griggs, and Mary Louise Weller in Kalte Wut (1982)

It is commonly believed that he was offered the role of "Sensei Jon Kreese" in the original The Karate Kid (1984). He reportedly turned it down, claiming he did not want his name connected with such a brutal and vicious character. This is, in fact, an urban legend; Norris himself has disputed it. While appearing on the February 9, 2006 episode of the radio show hosted by Adam Carolla, Norris stated that he was never offered the role at all.

Reader's Digest once noted a story of how Norris, true to his characters, prefers to find a non-violent way to solve a situation. Norris was in a bar once when a customer walked in and said to him, "You're in my seat. Move." Norris complied, and as the customer sat down, he recognized Norris. He then said, "Chuck, you could've kicked my butt if you wanted to. Instead of moving, why didn't you just attack me?" Norris' response: "What would that have accomplished?" Norris later said the experience resulted in him getting a new admirer and a new friend.

As a child, his idol and favorite actor was John Wayne. Indeed, their on screen personas bear much in common. Both achieved their highest level of fame playing no nonsense good guys who were incorruptible and did whatever it took to make sure that justice was served and that the bad guys got what they deserved.

Chuck Norris in Octagon (1980)

A website known as "Chuck Norris Facts" has been created as a parody of his career, containing hundreds of absurdly creative statements about his intellect, strength, virility and image, such as 'Chuck Norris once shot down a German fighter plane by pointing at it and yelling "Bang!".' Chuck is not offended by the website, in fact, has said he feels honored to have a website named after him and says he laughs when he reads the facts. He even used one fact in The Expendables 2 (2012): 'Chuck Norris was once bitten by a cobra. After five days of agonizing pain, the cobra finally died.'.
