Corbin Bleu excelled at jumping and even performed some of his own stunts such as the donkey kick and pushups, however he did use a stunt double for parts of the leaping such as back flips and solo jumping.
Bleu was born on January 4th, 1979 in Fort Worth, Texas. He started doing comedy at age 14 after being inspired by comedians such as Chris Rock and Dave Chappelle. In 1999, Bleu released his first album called "Silly Songs" which included songs that were originally sung as voicemails that fans would leave him with their phone numbers. The album became a success and sold over one million copies. In 2001, Bleu released his second album called "Roll With It".
In 2004, Corbin Bleu launched his own radio show called "The Corbin Bleu Show" which aired weekly on Thursday nights on about 100 stations across the United States. In addition to performing on the show, Bleu also interviewed musicians such as Jimmy Buffett, Ray Charles, and Jerry Garcia. In 2007, Bleu released his third album called "I'm Back". In March 2009, it was announced that Corbin Bleu had signed with J Records. His first single "Back Then (We Used To Know)", was released on June 23rd, 2010.

MacGyver was known for completing some crazy feats in every episode, but instead of employing a stunt double, Anderson did virtually all of his stunts himself! That, of course, came at a cost. "I'm not going to leap from buildings again," Anderson previously told The Los Angeles Times. "I've got scars to prove it."
In addition to leaping from high places, other dangerous activities that required real courage include: diving into icy waters to save people, using his knowledge of explosives to disarm bombs, and driving dangerous vehicles such as motorcycles and cars.
Anderson has said that he enjoys being able to relate to his audience through his character MacGyver because he can "understand what they're going through - no matter how weird or improbable the situation might seem."
He also admits that making himself vulnerable by sharing these stories has its risks, but says that he's never been seriously injured while performing actions as a part of his show.
MacGyver's use of magic is also portrayed as real. In one episode, he transforms water into wine during a desert mission where everyone else around him is dying of dehydration. He does this by taking a glass of water and saying a prayer over it.
Anderson has stated that he believes in magic because it can't be proven otherwise.
Javier Bardem Did His Own Stunts Despite the fact that Craig utilized a body double, particularly for the scene in which he catches a train with a last-minute jump, Bardem did all of the sprinting and falling himself.
Bardem said: "It's not easy to run after a bus when it's going 40 miles an hour."
Craig also did some of his own stunts in the movie. He was responsible for most of the action scenes in which he fights multiple opponents at once. In one such scene, he throws one opponent across the room and then jumps over another while they are still moving.
The actor says this type of stunt is not difficult if you have done much action photography before. He adds that it's about getting out of your mind and into the zone. The more you think about what you are doing, the harder it will be to do it correctly.
Stuntmen usually use special bodies armor when doing these types of scenes because they are often very dangerous if not done right. There have been cases where actors have lost their lives during these types of scenes (especially when they involve heavy weapons).
With movies becoming more realistic, actors need to start doing their own stunts too if they want to appear as real people fighting crime or traveling through time.
