Actor Mike Moh had two months to train and rehearse for his big backlot brawl scene as Bruce Lee in director Quentin Tarantino’s “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood,” but he’s been preparing for this role a lot longer.

He has been getting ready ever since he first watched a VHS tape of Lee’s 1973 martial arts opus, “Enter the Dragon,” when he was 8 years old.

“I lived in a small town called Woodbury, Minnesota, where 1 percent or less of the population were minorities, so I definitely felt a sense of otherness,” Moh, 35, a Korean American, told NBC News. “And at that point in my life, I probably wished that I wasn’t different and was trying to figure out how I fit in.”

Here was this warrior, unabashedly embracing his Chinese heritage to impress the ladies and beat his enemies — literally and figuratively.
