THE MEG

JASON STATHAM (Jonas Taylor) is an international star best known for his hard-hitting action films, recently including the global blockbuster "The Fate of the Furious," the latest film in the "Fast & Furious" franchise, directed by F. Gary Gray. He officially joined the franchise in 2015, playing Deckard Shaw in James Wan's "Furious 7." Statham earned a Critics' Choice Award nomination for his comedic turn in the Paul Feig-directed action comedy "Spy," in which he starred alongside Melissa McCarthy.

Born in Sydenham, England, Statham became a member of the British national diving team as one of their top divers, eventually placing 12th in the world. While training at the famed Crystal Palace National Sports Center in London, he caught the attention of film crews and photographers, who pursued him as a new talent.

Statham was eventually introduced to director Guy Ritchie, who cast him as Bacon in "Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels," marking the actor's feature film debut. He teamed up with Ritchie again on "Snatch," starring opposite Brad Pitt and Benicio Del Toro. In 2002, French film impresario Luc Besson entrusted him with title role of Frank Martin in "The Transporter." He went on to star in F. Gary Gray's blockbuster remake of "The Italian Job"; "Crank" and its sequel, "Crank: High Voltage"; and "Transporter 2" and "Transporter 3."

Statham's additional film credits include starring roles in the highly praised "The Bank Job," for director Roger Donaldson; "Death Race"; Sylvester Stallone's "The Expendables" and its two sequels; "The Mechanic" and its recent sequel, "Mechanic: Resurrection"; "Blitz"; "Killer Elite"; "Safe," for director Boaz Yakin; the title role in "Parker," opposite Jennifer Lopez under the direction of Taylor Hackford; Steven Knight's directorial debut, "Redemption"; "Homefront"; and "Wild Card."
