Since when? Maybe in some of his newer high quality Walker episodes where he's too old...always did all the fights himself otherwise.

Once Chuck got famous he couldn't get insurance to cover stunts. Additionally, production companies couldn't get completion bonds to cover the expense if Chuck got hurt so they would try to film as many action shots at the end of filming in case there was an accident and Chuck got taken out.

 

It took a lot of odd camera angles to get the action so it would look like Chuck. They even went as far as having a mask made for the stunt guy so he would look more like Chuck but it was kinda cheesy.

 

The stuntman finally had cosmetic surgery so he looked enough like Chuck even in fairly tight shots.

 

BTW Chuck's stunt double is his son Mike Norris. Can you imagine having surgery to look more like your Dad. I guess everyone needs a job.

The current state of digital manipulation in film is making it very easy to keep the "actors" face involved in shots.

 

Jet Li in "The One" worked against his sparing partner. They simply painted Jet's face onto the other body.

 

Denzel Washinton just wrapped the move "Deja Vu" http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0453467/ in New Orleans. A couple of buddies were working the movie and said that Denzel only got to do a couple of very easy stunts. The rest were performed by professional stuntmen and the images would be manipulated later.

All of the surfing and skydiving sequences for the movie Point Break were filmed after all other photography had wrapped. They shot everything they could at low risk then finally in high-risk situations so they would have enough film to complete the movie in the event of an accident.

 

While filming Letters From A Killer in New Orleans, Patrick Swazye was doing a simple horse riding stunt. As he approached an Oak tree, the horse went left and he went right. He didn't let go of the reigns so the motion swung his legs right into the trunk of the tree. A broken femur stopped production for six months.
