KOTA KINABALU, 25th October 2011: American actor Jason Scott Lee took time off filming a National Geographic documentary to build with Habitat for Humanity Malaysia.
The actor, who played kungfu legend Bruce Lee, was in the Malaysian state of Sabah on Borneo island to film an eco-travel documentary.
When Lee arrived in Lingubang village in Kota Belud town, he was welcomed by local students who performed a traditional dance.
Together with the film crew, he helped to install window panes and paint the interior walls of a Habitat house.
The Hawaii-based actor told a local newspaper, The Borneo Post, that he had put aside his movie career in favor of more adventurous projects or charity work.
This is the second time that Lee is hosting theMalaysian Journey documentary, after his 2007 stint. The second series of the documentary will focus on attractions such as an elephant sanctuary, national parks and a sun bear conservation center in Sabah. The one-hour documentary is scheduled for broadcast in early 2012.
