Oy, it’s Jason Statham’s birthday, innit Tommy? I defy you to find anyone cooler. Before getting into acting, Statham was a member of Britain’s National Diving Squad for twelve years and modeled for FCUK. He was introduced to the world as an actor in 1998’s Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels – a role he won because he had prior experience selling black market goods!
Statham followed up Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels with another Guy Ritchie caper comedy Snatch, and since then, Statham has made dozens of popular films, including The Italian Job, Collateral, The Transporter, Transporter 2, Transporter 3, Revolver, The Pink Panther, Crank, Crank: High Voltage, The Expendables, The Expendables 2, The Bank Job, and Death Race. Don’t mess wiff da Stafe, mate! Jason Statham turns 45 today.
