Jason Statham is a {{Badass}}. Using his accent when saying his name is mandatory.

A resident of the UK and expert kickboxer, Statham is one of the few remaining straight-up action stars in Hollywood. He first drew attention for his roles in the films of GuyRitchie (especially ''LockStockAndTwoSmokingBarrels''), but became a bona fide star with ''TheTransporter'' and ''Film/{{Crank}}'' films; he is also a frequent collaborator with Jet Li and has also done voice-overs for ''[[RedFaction Red Faction II]]'' and the original ''CallOfDuty''.

A good rule of thumb when considering Jason Statham movies for viewing: if the film in question cannot be alternatively titled ''Jason Statham Drives A Car And Kills People ([[PerpetualFrowner While Scowling A Lot]])'', it most likely isn't that good.

Holds the honor of being the only major Hollywood Action star to NEVER have played a kind, soft-hearted and/or sensitive character (though his interaction with his young charge in the second ''TheTransporter'' film somewhat subverts this); judging from the success and popularity of his cold and mean-spirited typecast, he probably never will.
