Bruce Le (real name Huang Jian Long, a.k.a. Wong Kin Lung) is a martial artist and actor who is known for the martial arts films he made in the 1970s and '80s. Most of these were cheaply produced and were made to capitalize on the martial arts phenomenon started by Bruce Lee, whose death in 1973 left a large box office void (hence the name change to "Bruce Le").

Bruce Le was a contract player for the Shaw Brothers, where he appeared in the fondly remembered science fiction opus Infra-Man. He did not spend much time with the Shaws, however, and quickly went on to making Bruce Lee inspired "tribute" films ("Bruceploitation").
