I'm sure we've all witnessed the growth of this object, which became quite pronounced starting with Wake of Death and has been featured in every film he has made since then. In the trailer for his next hit film Til Death ( here ) you can see it quite clearly. How do they plan to work around this for the next Rush Hour?

That's one of those things I've asked myself as well - wtf is that? Is it just the weird, deformed shape of his skull?

That would actually be pretty awesome.

The sooner he accepts that he is no longer a headliner (which he should have realized YEARS ago), the sooner he might actually get a role or two in an actual movie. Even still, his roles would be pretty limited.

Yup, the movie is shooting in Paris right now. He's most likely going to be the main bad-guy. As cancerous as I found Rush Hour 2 to be, this gives me some hope that the sequel might end up being accidentally entertaining at least.

I rofled at the thread heading, his bump is so conspicuous I cant believe I hadnt asked the same question before.

Anyway its handy coz everytime he has to play his twin-brother/himself from the past/future then they just use makeup to hide it on one of the characters and if I wasnt at work on dialup right now I'd stuff this thread good with JCVD dancing gifs.

wtf doesn't he just get it removed, or drained, or whatever? It's kinda gross.

Looks like a steatoma (also known as a sebaceous or keratinous cyst), which is usually filled with either fluid (serosanguinous fluid) or tissue (comprised of mostly keratin and some calcium deposits). In either case, complete removal of the cystic mass (including the cyst wall) is required, or the cyst will frequently recur.

Perhaps Van Damme was worried (My pretty face!) about scarring as a result of the surgical procedure to drain and/or remove the cystic mass?

He could easily have it lanced and drained...wouldn't leave a scar at all. Might fill up every few months or may once a year, but preferable to being a mutant unicorn.

It does indeed look like a sebaceous cyst. My dad had one of those for a few years ago and had it taken out. He didn't have any scarring as a result as far as I know.

A sebaceous cyst that lasted 20 years? I don't know dude... Once you pop one of those (they pop by themselves from the pressure of puss build up usually), you are left with a big cavity. I don't think it's a cyst. Probably hardened scar tissue from trauma.

I believe they can last for decades, the only time they really pop themselves is if they get infected and there's a sudden buildup of puss (apart from the karatin). They are usually pretty stable although they can slowly grow over time. They do however sort of "ferment" while inside the cyst sac, so if a decades old cyst is drained, the smell will be ungodly (my mom was a nurse and told me that the cleaners couldn't remove it from the hospital room with javex for days, i had a small one on my eyebrow that she drained a couple of years ago, it was a 2/10 on the vandamme scale)

I just wanna give props to Van Damme for not going down the plastic surgery route and looking like an inexpressive muppet. I think he looks more whethered then he does old, and in his recent films its been an asset and not a detriment.

He's also finally learned to act BTW. Yeah, seriously, he can convincingly convey emotion nowadays, whoda thunk it?

3) He should play bad guys.

I've heard this 'he's learned to act' thing a lot, I want to see Til Death just to see if it's true.

And yeah, I'm glad he hasn't gone the plastic surgery route, but getting that shit drained is not plastic surgery, really. I bet the pus is super super smelly, too.

Not always the case. I just had a giant cist removed from my back, and it was not liquid at all. It basically looked like a ball of fat when they showed it to me. They cant all be lanced. I had to get 4 stiches and there a very aparent scar, there not much else they can do. I imagin this is the case for Damme as well. Not everyone can get away with a facial scar like Joaquin Phoenix.:lol

I watched the movie where Van Damme is an American agent fighting to protect the US embassy in 'Maldovia' from an uprising. It was pretty decent, but the special effects were horrible. Van Damme's best acting in recent years was Desert Heat (1999). Now that's an awesome film.
