Jason Statham Career Milestones
Jason Statham exploded onto the big screen with his debut performance in Guy Ritchie’s Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. He went on to collaborate with Ritchie on his follow-up Snatch, starring opposite Brad Pitt and Benicio Del Toro.
Now one of the biggest and most bankable names of the action world, Jason appeared in sci-fi film Ghosts of Mars and Jet Li’s The One before he was cast by Luc Besson as Frank Martin in The Transporter. In 2003 he starred as Handsome Rob in the summer blockbuster The Italian Job, followed by the adrenaline-compromised action hero Chev Chelios in Crank. Statham returned as Frank Martin in Transporter II and Transporter III and re-teamed with Jet Li in War.
More recently, he has starred in The Bank Job directed by Roger Donaldson, Death Race for Universal and reprised the role of Chev Chelios in Crank: High Voltage. He went on to make 13 and joined an all-action cast in The Expendables directed by Sylvester Stallone. He recently starred in The Mechanic, cop killer thriller Blitz and voiced the character of Tybalt in Gnomeo & Juliet.
