Peter Navy Tuiasosopo (born December 22, 1963 in San Pedro, California) is an American-Samoan actor perhaps best known for his roles as E. Honda in Universal Pictures Street Fighter and Manumana in the Paramount Pictures film Necessary Roughness.

Acting[edit]

Tuiasosopo is perhaps best known for playing the role of E. Honda in the live action movie Street Fighter along with Jean-Claude Van Damme and Raúl Juliá.

Tuiasosopo's first motion picture film role was Manumana "the Slender", the committed and respectful center on the fictional reconstructed Texas State "Fighting Armadillos" football team in the 1991 film Necessary Roughness. Tuiasosopo took a leave of absence from McDonnell Douglas in Long Beach, California for the film. Shortly afterwards, he co-starred in his first television series with original television Batman Adam West as the strong-armed detective Al Hamoki for the Fox network called Danger Theatre. Tuiasosopo had another film role as Willie Dumaine in 12 Rounds along with WWE wrestler John Cena. He also had a part in the NCIS season 10 episode "Hereafter" as Charles Kang / Chucky Bang.
