"Jackie Chan" Richardson to Toronto FC

So what is up with all the celebrity names going to MLS as of late? First "John Kennedy" to Seattle now it's "Jackie Chan"!

Guyanese international striker Gregory "Jackie Chan" Richardson is set to sign for Toronto FC and become the first Guyanese to play in Major League Soccer (MLS) as he wrapped up his one week training session with the team in Miami, Florida.
Twenty-six-year-old Richardson came to prominence last year during the CONCACAF club Championship with his Trinidad and Tobago Pro-League club Joe Public when he devastated MLS top club New England Revolution scoring four goals in his club win. He also single-handedly ripped apart several other top clubs in the tournament. Several international news agencies linked the striker with moves to New England Revolution and other top MLS clubs including Columbus Crew and San Jose Earthquakes.
