Video: Special: A look at Brit hunk Jason Statham.

If you've seen Jason's other movies, then you can probably already guess the outcome of this one. It's most likely not going to end well for the drug dude. Jason is undoubtedly one of the biggest action stars of the decade, making virtually nothing but over the top kick ass films. Before he started acting, Statham was an Olympic diver. In fact, he even finished 12th in the 1992 World Championships. After that he became a model and a salesman. He broke through on the big screen in 1998 with Guy Ritchie's classic 'Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels'. After that came 'Snatch' from the same director. These two movies are by far Statham's best films. After those he made some crappy ones before popping up in 2002's 'Transporter'. For this one he did nearly all of his own stunts, including car chases, scuba diving and of course the fight sequences. Well trained in martial arts and also a pro kick boxer, Jason had little trouble with such scenes. So when you see him busting someone's balls, remember he could easily do it for real too.
