Action star Donnie Yen placed his deadly hands and feet in cement at Hollywood's TCL Chinese Theatre Wednesday, voicing hope that his career would inspire fellow Asians to take up acting.Overshadowed over the years by Jackie Chan and other sought-after kung fu stars, Yen has been gradually breaking into Hollywood since appearing in Guillermo del Toro's "Blade II" in 2002 .Born in the southern Chinese province of Guangdong, Yen came to Hong Kong – where he lives now – at the age of 2 and later moved to the United States, growing up in Boston's Chinatown.Much of the star's inspiration comes from his mother, Bow Sim-Mark, a world-famous wushu and tai chi master, at whose internationally-known Chinese Wushu Research Institute the young Yen learned kung fu.
