Born in Derbyshire England on July 26, 1967, Jason Statham always had an interest in athleticism. He had a strong interest in martial arts, excelled at diving and also played soccer for some time. As Jason started modeling for the brand French Connection, it was at this time that Guy Ritchie spotted him and got him his first role in the movie Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998). Since, his movies have accumulated over $1.5 billion in ticket sales!
Another one of Statham's best known works is in the 2003 film, The Italian Job. If you're looking for a witty, action-packed, and at times, romantic movie, this is the one for you. Jason starts alongside Charlize Theron, Mark Wahlberg, Mos Def and Edward Norton in this as they attempt to make one of the largest heists in history.
