Bruce Le (real name Huang Jian Long, a.k.a. Wong Kin Lung) (born June 5, 1950, Burma) is a martial artist and actor known for his martial arts film of the 1970s and '80s. Most of these were inexpensively 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 science fiction opus Infra-Man. He is better known, however, for his Bruce Lee inspired "tribute" films, also known as "Bruceploitation".
