(The Latest Available Bio)

JASON STATHAM is an international star best known for his hard-hitting action thrillers. Most recently he was seen besides James Franco and Kate Bosworth in Homefront, and in screenwriter Steven Knight's (Dirty Pretty Things, Eastern Promises) directorial debut Redemption. Other films slated for 2014 release include HEAT and Fast and the Furious 7.

Born in Sydenham, England, Statham was one of the top divers on the British national team, eventually placing 12th in the world. When he trained at the famed Crystal Palace National Sport Center in London, film crews and photographers pursued him as new talent and he eventually met the executive producer of an upcoming film. Statham then met with the director, Guy Ritchie, and that's how he made his film debut as Bacon in Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels (1998).

Statham went on to work with Ritchie again in Snatch (2000), starring opposite Brad Pitt and Benicio Del Toro. He was then cast by French film impresario Luc Besson in the title role of Frank Martin in The Transporter (2002); starred as Handsome Rob in the blockbuster remake of The Italian Job (2003); and kept moviegoers' hearts racing as Chev Chelios, the adrenaline-compromised action hero who powered Crank (2006).

Statham returned as Frank Martin in Transporter 2 (2006) and Transporter 3 (2008) before starring in Roger Donaldson's The Bank Job (2008), the critically acclaimed true story of the 1971 Baker Street bank robbery. He also top lined the action remake Death Race (2008), starring opposite Ian McShane.

Next Statham reprised the role of Chev Chelios in Crank 2: High Voltage (2009) and teamed up with some of the world's biggest action stars in Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables (2010). Statham followed up with a remake of The Mechanic (2011), which originally starred Charles Bronson as professional hit man Arthur Bishop.

Statham's other film credits include Killer Elite (2011) based on a true story written by Ralph Fiennes and starring Robert Deniro and Clive Owen, Safe (2012), directed by Boaz Yakin and produced by Lawrence Bender, and the action packed sequel Expendables 2 (2012). He then went on to star opposite Jennifer Lopez in the thriller Parker (2013).
