Martial Arts action star Chuck Norris turns 70 today and he's showing barely any sign of aging. Sure those red tresses are a little grayer, but the Walker: Texas Ranger star still looks like he's got it in him to deliver a crippling roundhouse kick to some bad guys' faces.

Chuck has enjoyed a resurgance in popularity over the last couple of years despite his retirement from film. That's thanks in part to the popularity (and hilarity) of Chuck Norris Facts, a website that pays homage to the action star with a series of absurdly badass facts about Chuck.
