The Belgian action hero actor Jean-Claude Van Damme returned to the screen Friday as the bungling star of a new Amazon comedy series. The actor, whose career went into a tailspin after "Timecop" made him a worldwide star in 1994, plays a comic version of himself in the new streaming series, "Jean-Claude Van Johnson".
