Jean-Claude Van Damme puts movie on hold for dogNovember 4th, 2008 - 6:28 pm ICT by ANI
New York, Nov 4 (ANI): Belgian martial artist and actor Jean-Claude Van Damme has cancelled promotional appearances for his new flick JCVD to take care of a puppy.
Van Damme, who earned himself the nickname Muscles From Brussels, had recently adopted seven dogs from Bangkok, and one of them is said to be in a coma.
Van Damme will stay in Thailand to see this dog through this very trying time, the New York Post quoted a source as saying.
JCVD is a fictional biopic about an action star who struggles with financial problems and a custody battle.
Van Damme will be playing as himself in the movie.
More detail could not be obtained about his role, as his manager did not return calls and e-mails. (ANI)
