Jack Kao (Chinese: 高捷; pinyin: Gāo Jié, born 23 April 1958) is Taiwanese actor. He is one of Taiwan's biggest stars and has been called the Taiwanese Al Pacino.
He began his career in the late 1980s films of Hou Hsiao-hsien. Kao credits his success to the many real-life gangsters he knew when he was young. He appeared in City of Sadness, a film about the Tawain's White Terror, which received the 1989 Golden Lion award the Venice Film Festival. Another of his films about that same period, 2009's Prince of Tears, was also included in the festival. His 2001 film Millennium Mambo was recently featured in the Film Society of Lincoln Center's 2016 retrospective "Going Steadi: 40 Years of Steadicam".
