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

A resident of the UK, expert kickboxer, and former member of the British high diving team, Statham is one of the few remaining straight-up action stars in Hollywood. He first drew attention for his roles in the films of Guy Ritchie (especially Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels), but became a bona fide star with The Transporter and Crank films; he is also a frequent collaborator with Jet Li and has also done voice-overs for Red Faction II and the original Call of Duty.

His perennial character is that of a bald antihero with solid asskicking abilities and a very defined style. 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 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 (the only real subversion of his reputation is with young charge in the second The Transporter and Mei in Safe. He's very practical but caring with Mei [and vice versa] while also implying she is his whole life now and tells the boy in the Transporter 2 jokes and riddles;) but judging from the success and popularity of his cold and mean-spirited typecast, he probably never will.
