Jackie Chan's son Jaycee makes surprise appearance in dad's new film

Fans who watched Jackie Chan's latest action film, Railroad Tigers, were suprised to find that the movie also includes a major role for his son, Jaycee Chan.

Jackie's son's role was not revealed before the December 23rd premiere, reports China Daily via AsiaOne.

Jaycee has kept a low profile since getting arrested for drug possession on April 18, 2014 being sentenced to six months in jail last January.

When asked about his son's role, Jackie said that the cast selection was made by director Ding Sheng.

While stars like Wang Kai and Huang Zitao made appearances at the Beijing preview for the movie, Jaycee did not attend.
