I was at Hollywood Videos and saw some movies from HK called Ace goes places. They had Ace goes places 1 to 4. and now when i go to imdb.com and look up jackie chan, in his bios there is no ace goes places. Could it be that it's under a different name???

Jackie Chan was never in Aces Go Places. You're probably thinking of Sam Hui. I guess he kinda looked like Jackie. But it's not the same person. This guy is a singer.

That's hilarious - first time I've heard anyone mistaken Sam Hui with Jackie Chan. Now that I think about it, I suppose there is some similarity, the haircuts are the same. Sam is actually quite a martial artist, he did study under Bruce Lee and was groomed to be the next Bruce. But I guess that singing is a lot less strenous. Sam did almost died from frostbite filming The Legend of Wisely.

Actually

It's a quite common mistake. Many not in the know often confused the two in their early to mid 80's films. Doesn't help that one was an accomplished singer trying to become an aspiring martial artist, while the other was an accomplished martial artist trying to become an aspiring singer.
