In August 2011, he began filming Parker for director Taylor Hackford; the film was released in January 2013. Statham played Parker, the criminal antihero previously played by Mel Gibson in 1999’s Payback and by Lee Marvin in 1967’s Point Blank (though their characters were given different surnames). A. O. Scott of The New York Times said of the actor in the film: “[Statham], who seems to be made entirely of muscle and scar tissue, is comfortable with his limitations as an actor. His Parker, in any case, is more of an axiom than a fully rounded human being.” A 2012 BBC News report estimated that his ten-year film career to date (2002 to 2012) yielded over one billion dollars in the box office, making him one of the industry’s most bankable stars. He was signed on to reprise his role as Lee Christmas in The Expendables 2 in 2012.In 2003, Statham appeared in three British television commercials for the Kit Kat chocolate bar. Described as a “break philosopher”, he philosophised about salmon swimming upstream, a Mexican fisherman, and the relative speeds and ages of animals, before ending with a reminder that “taking a break” (alluding to the Kit Kat slogan) is an important part of life.
Statham enjoys wakeboarding, jet skiing, wind surfing, and rock climbing. While filming on location in Varna for The Expendables 3, he drove a truck off the road into the Black Sea due to malfunctioning brakes.

Statham was asked to re-join the Fast & Furious franchise once more in 2016. The ensuing film, The Fate of the Furious, was released in April 2017 to commercial success. While the film overall received mixed reviews, Statham was praised for his comedic timing and onscreen chemistry with contemporaries. The film went on to be the third highest-grossing film of 2017 and the 12th highest-grossing film of all time.An article by Times Higher Education reported that Manchester University Press commissioned an academic study analysing the impact Statham has had on the British and American film industries from his debut in 1998 to 2018. According to the article, professors Steven Gerrard and Robert Shail are looking to show “the changing face of British cinematic masculinity” into “one that embraces cinema across a wide range of projects, but one that also uses cross-textual media in his output”.
Spy 2 was confirmed on 15 February 2018. But later in 2018, Feig explained that although a sequel to Spy could still happen, “there hasn’t been any interest from the studio” in the project.
The commercial success of these films led Statham to star as Frank Martin in the Transporter trilogy (2002–2008). After starring in a variety of heist and action-thriller films such as The Italian Job (2003), Crank (2006), War (2007), The Bank Job (2008), The Mechanic (2011), Spy (2015), and Mechanic: Resurrection (2016), he established himself as a Hollywood leading man. However, he has also starred in commercially and critically unsuccessful films such as Revolver (2005), Chaos (2005), In the Name of the King (2007), 13 (2010), Blitz (2011), Killer Elite (2011), Hummingbird (2013), and Wild Card (2015). He regained commercial success as a part of the ensemble action series The Expendables (2010–2014) and the Fast & Furious franchise. In the latter, he has played Deckard Shaw in Fast & Furious 6 (2013), Furious 7 (2015), The Fate of the Furious (2017), F9 (2021), Fast X (2023), and the spin-off Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019).

Their daughter was born on 2 February 2022. They reside in Beverly Hills, California.Statham’s acting has been criticised for lacking depth and variety, but he has also been praised for leading the resurgence of action films during the 2000s and 2010s. According to a BBC News report, his film career from 2002 to 2017 generated an estimated $1.5 billion (£1.1 billion) in ticket sales, making him one of the film industry’s most bankable stars.In a 2013 interview with Vanity Fair, he advocated for stunt performers to be given their own Academy Award category: “All of the stunt men—these are the unsung heroes. They really are. Nobody is giving them any credibility. They’re risking their necks. And then you’ve got poncy actors pretending like they’re doing [the stunts].”
What clothes does Jason wear?
Jason wears a dark green work shirt with 2 buttoned flap pockets, weathered tan color work pants, black work boots, yellow leather gloves and a 1940s U.S. Marines utility belt. Typically used to carry a machete, throwing darts, firearm reloads, survival knife and other equipment.
Statham’s life in the media began when he was spotted by the agency Sports Promotions specialising in sports modelling while he was training at London’s Crystal Palace National Sports Centre. He was also signed by Tommy Hilfiger, Griffin, and Levi’s for various modelling contracts during their 1996 spring/summer collections. In 1997, he became a model for the clothing brand French Connection. A spokesperson for the high street clothing chain said, “We chose Jason because we wanted our model to look like a normal guy. His look is just right for now: very masculine and not too male-modelly.” However, he was still forced to follow in his father’s footsteps as a street seller to make ends meet, stating that he sold “fake perfume and jewellery on street corners”. He made small appearances in a few music videos, including “Comin’ On” by The Shamen in 1993, “Run to the Sun” by Erasure in 1994, and “Dream a Little Dream of Me” by The Beautiful South in 1995.In 2015 he starred in the action comedy Spy alongside Melissa McCarthy, Jude Law, and Rose Byrne. The film, a commercial success, was particularly praised for showcasing Statham’s comedic side in contrast to his more serious roles. According to an article by Empire magazine, a Spy 2 was development in late 2015, with more screen time dedicated for Statham’s character, Rick Ford. He was nominated for the Critic’s Choice Award for Best Actor in a Comedy for his role in Spy. An article by Adam Gabbatt in The Guardian noted that Statham’s character contributions to his industry and film niche are “tough [and] uncompromising”. Some critics note his presence as a “defining feature” that signals to movie-goers the content of a film. The same exposé commented, “You know what you’re getting with a Jason Statham film. He will beat people up. He will crash cars. He will do an unconvincing American accent.” Statham’s impact on the action-thriller genre has been seen by Gabbatt as a replacement of the same undertaken by Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, and Jean-Claude Van Damme during their runs as headliners throughout the 1980s and 1990s. Statham himself cites Stallone, Bruce Lee, Paul Newman, Steve McQueen, and Clint Eastwood as his inspirations. While working as a model for French Connection, he was introduced to fledgling British director Guy Ritchie who was developing a film project and needed to fill the role of a street-wise con artist. After learning about Statham’s past as a black market salesman, Ritchie cast him to play the role of “Bacon” in his 1998 crime comedy thriller Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. The movie was well received by both critics and audiences, and helped put Statham in the public eye. For his role in the film he was paid UK £5,000. Statham’s second collaboration with Ritchie came in the 2000 film Snatch, playing the role of “Turkish”. Cast alongside popular actors Brad Pitt, Dennis Farina, and Benicio del Toro, the movie earned more than $80 million in box-office revenue. For his role in Snatch, he was paid UK £15,000, 3 times the amount of his first film. Statham was able to break into Hollywood and appeared in two movies in 2001: the science fiction action horror film Ghosts of Mars and the science fiction martial arts action film The One.In 2019, Statham reprised his role as Deckard Shaw again in Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw, a spin-off of the Fast & Furious franchise focusing on his and Dwayne Johnson’s characters. The film grossed $758 million worldwide, becoming the tenth highest-grossing film of 2019, and received generally positive reviews from critics, with praise for Statham’s performance. In the comic book series Ultimate Spider-Man, that series’ version of the villain Vulture was rendered by artist Mark Bagley to resemble actor Statham, as per writer Brian Michael Bendis’ instructions. Statham was offered more film roles, and in 2002 he was cast as the lead role of driver Frank Martin in the action movie The Transporter, written by Luc Besson. He has studied Wing Chun, karate, and kickboxing. The film spawned two sequels, Transporter 2 (2005) and Transporter 3 (2008). He also played supporting roles in Mean Machine (2002), The Italian Job (2003), and Cellular (2004) in which he played the lead villain.Jason Statham was born on 26 July 1967 in Shirebrook, Derbyshire, the son of dancer Eileen (née Yates) and street seller Barry Statham. His father also worked odd jobs as a house painter, coal miner, and singer in the Canary Islands. Statham moved to Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, where he initially chose not to follow his father’s career working the local market stalls, instead practising martial arts. He grew up with football player Vinnie Jones, alongside whom he would later act. Jones introduced him to football, and Statham went on to play for the local grammar school (1978–1983), which he had attended since age 11, a passion that he shared with diving. He practised daily in perfecting his diving techniques, and was a member of Britain’s National Swimming Squad for 12 years. He competed for England at the 1990 Commonwealth Games in the 10 metre, 3 metre, and 1 metre competitions. He said in a 2003 interview with IGN that his time with the national squad was “a great experience” and one that “teaches you discipline, focus, and certainly keeps you out of trouble”.Jason Statham (/ˈsteɪθəm/; born 26 July 1967) is an English actor. He is known for portraying characters in various action-thriller films who are typically tough, hardboiled, gritty, or violent.In 2013, Statham had a cameo appearance at the end of Fast & Furious 6 as the brother of the film’s antagonist Owen Shaw (Luke Evans). He reprised the character, this time as the main antagonist, in Furious 7, which was released in April 2015. He also starred opposite James Franco in the thriller Homefront, written by Sylvester Stallone, and headlined the British thriller Hummingbird. The latter film was praised by critics for pushing Statham’s acting abilities to new heights. His “attempt to develop his ‘brand’ by trying more adventurous parts” noted by The Guardian’s Mark Kermode, “[broadened] his dramatic palette”. Statham made a cameo in the 2014 music video Summer of Calvin Harris as one of the car racers. In 2014, he returned as Lee Christmas in The Expendables 3. Although critically panned, the film would go on to gross $215 million against a $90 million budget.
Statham played the lead, former Naval captain Jonas Taylor, in the 2018 action-horror film The Meg, which was released on 10 August. In order to prepare for scenes wherein he swims in shark-infested waters, Statham swam with bull sharks in Fiji. The film would go on to gross $527.8 million worldwide, becoming the highest-grossing U.S.-Chinese co-production of all time.
In 2009, Statham started to develop a new movie written by David Peoples and Janet Peoples. Statham stated “We’ve got a movie we’re trying to do, written by David Peoples and Janet Peoples, in the vein of an old film, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre. It’s not a remake or anything, but it’s a little bit like that, about relationships and how greed contaminates the relationships these three people have. The working title is The Grabbers.” He reprised his role as Chev Chelios in the 2009 sequel Crank: High Voltage.In 2005, Statham was once again cast by Ritchie to star in his new project, Revolver, which was a critical and box office failure. He played a dramatic role in the independent film London in 2006. That same year he played the lead role in the action film Crank. Statham was asked to promote Crank during the 2006 San Diego Comic-Con Convention. In 2008, Statham starred in the British crime thriller The Bank Job and Death Race, a remake of Death Race 2000 (1975). American film critic Armond White hailed Statham’s ascension as an action film star. On the occasion of Death Race, White championed Statham’s “best track record of any contemporary movie star.” Later in 2008, White praised Statham’s Transport
er 3 as a great example of kinetic pop art. Chris Hewitt of Empire Magazine, noted the film as “a dour, drab affair”, but credited the film with “establishing Statham as a new action hero, as at ease with gruff one-liners as he was with Jackie Chan-esque high-kicking”.
In his first film of 2011, Statham starred in the remake of the 1972 Charles Bronson film The Mechanic as Arthur Bishop. A theatrical trailer depicting Statham’s character “shooting a man’s head off” was banned from circulation by the Advertising Standards Authority for showing excessive violence. His role in The Mechanic was positively reviewed by the critics both in the United States and the United Kingdom. The Guardian praised his performance as possessing a “now-customary efficiency” in attaining “an entertaining hitman thriller”. The New York Times noted Statham as “sleek as a bullet”; and the film “a more powerful recharge” of the original. UK newspaper, The Daily Telegraph hailed Statham as “England’s best export to action movies in just about forever, a businesslike brute with gentlemanly soul.” He returned to British film by starring in the police drama Blitz as Detective Sergeant Tom Brant. The film received mixed reviews with Cath Clake of The Guardian reviewing it as “not half bad” and “oddly entertaining”. He was then cast in the action film Killer Elite. The film was based on real events, which were the subject of Sir Ranulph Fiennes’ novel The Feather Men. Statham played an assassin named Danny who comes out of retirement to save an old friend, played by Robert De Niro. The film grossed returned a negative budget, and was panned by the critics.
Statham began practising Chinese martial arts, kickboxing, and karate recreationally in his youth while working at local market stalls. An avid footballer and diver, he was a member of Britain’s national diving team and competed for England in the 1990 Commonwealth Games. Shortly after, he was asked to model for French Connection, Tommy Hilfiger, and Levi’s in various advertising campaigns. His past history working at market stalls inspired his casting in the Guy Ritchie crime films Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998) and Snatch (2000).
The sequel to his 2011 film The Mechanic was scheduled for production in late 2016 and announced to open as Mechanic: Resurrection. The film went on to become highly commercially successfully in international film markets grossing $109.4 million worldwide. According to Forbes, the film was Statham’s “seventh-biggest earner” and most commercially successful solo film venture of his career.
Statham was offered a three-film contract to reboot the Transporter series in late 2015, but turned it down because he was not given the script before the signing date and unhappy with its compensation package. According to an article by The Guardian, Statham expressed interest in playing James Bond in the upcoming Spectre film. Its author, Steve Rose noted that “there was no doubt Statham can walk the Bond walk. And talking his talk can hardly be an issue with a character whose accent has fluctuated between Sean Connery’s Scottish brogue and Timothy Dalton’s Welsh.” After the interview there were multiple calls from critics and the public to instate him as James Bond in a future film.In the movie, Jason Statham portrays the lead character, Jonas Taylor, who leads a research team on a dive into the sea while trying to escape prehistoric sharks.Warner Bros. Pictures released a new trailer for Meg 2: The Trench, which features Jason Statham and Wu Jing teaming up to lead a research team on a dive to the deepest part of the ocean.

What brands does Jason Statham wear?
John Varvatos and Denim and Supply (the Ralph Lauren offshoot) are go-to designers for the Statham. The Statham owns stacks of James Perse T-shirts. If it’s chilly, then V-necked sweaters will be worn—à la Simon Cowell, but minus the moobs—over rock-hard chests. U.S. Navy aviators are the Statham’s one adornment.
Jason Statham was born on 26 July 1967 in Shirebrook, Derbyshire. He attended a local grammar school and he also started practicing martial arts, kung fu, kickboxing, and karate at a very young age. He also loved diving and hence he used to practice diving daily. With this, we can make out, why he loves performing stunts and why he chooses to do even the dangerous stunts by himself.Aside from his baby-rescuing in Fate, Statham doesn’t interact much with kids. But Safe hinges on the bond between his character and young actress Catherine Chan, as he attempts to save her from the Triad, Russian Mafia, and NYC cops. It results in one of Statham’s most tender performances, in between all the beatings, of course.
What suit did Jason Statham wear in Transporter?
Statham reported to have worn a $4,000 suit, shirt and tie combination from Armani during filming of The Transporter.
Ford’s continued insistence that the CIA has a Face/Off machine is one of the Spy’s best bits, and his other off-the-wall claims make this character so delusional, you can’t help but enjoy it. It’s one of the great surprise performances of the 2010s and proves that Statham can do a lot more than punch people in the face (although he does that very well).Statham plays Turkish, a small-time boxing promoter who gets on the wrong side of a big-time crime boss after a fight goes south. From there, Turkish must navigate a world of double-crosses, diamonds, and dangerous men. Instead of beating the crap out of everyone, Turkish uses his wits to survive, and Statham’s wry narration brings us along on the wild ride.
One of the most ingenious action films of the 2000s puts Statham in the role of Chev Chelios, a British hitman who has been poisoned and must keep his adrenaline at peak levels to stay alive long enough to find out who wants to kill him. This sets the stage for all sorts of depravity, from brawls with gangsters, wild driving, doing every drug imaginable, and having public sex with his girlfriend (Amy Smart).
Jason Statham took an interesting route to becoming an action superstar. Growing up in England, Statham was a competitive diver, participating on Britain’s National Swimming Squad for 12 years and competing in the 1990 Commonwealth Games, a pseudo-Olympics for British countries and territories.
After stealing the show as villain Deckard Shaw in Furious 7 (2015), Statham was invited back for the next installment, bringing his signature intensity and a touch of menace to the increasingly sterile franchise. And while it was difficult for many fans to swallow Shaw as part of the family (justice for Han!), he’s been a welcome addition.
That, plus his career in modeling and music videos, accounts for the surprising amount of grace he brings to his roles despite playing a rogue’s gallery of thieves, toughs, and traitors over the years. In compiling his best movies, we didn’t have room for everything, so honorable mention goes out to some ace supporting roles in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels (1998), The Italian Job (2003), and The Expendables 2 (2012), and an interesting turn to drama in the quiet Redemption (2013).
Some might argue that Chev Chelios is Statham’s signature part, but for us, it’s Frank Martin, the driver with three rules that he never breaks…at least until the first film. While The Transporter (2002) is a fun ride, and you can’t beat the motor oil fight, the sequel is where Statham fully embodies the role.
Is Jason Statham his real name?
Early life. Jason Statham was born on 26 July 1967 in Shirebrook, Derbyshire, the son of dancer Eileen (née Yates) and street seller Barry Statham.
Statham does…comedy? Completely pivoting in this Melissa McCarthy vehicle, he sends up the brusque man of action to great effect in this hilarious film. As CIA agent Rick Ford, Statham bellows and blusters his way through every scene he’s in, stealing the film right out from the reliably funny McCarthy. It’s a not-so-subtle jab at his usual roles that works perfectly because Statham sells it with a straight face.
Sure, you can see most of the plot twists coming, but there’s no denying that it’s a fun ride with good supporting work from Foster, Donald Sutherland, and Tony Goldwyn. This was a surprise hit; however, the 2016 sequel Mechanic: Resurrection isn’t up to par.
The elite assassin subgenre is one of our favorites, and this lean thriller (a remake of the 1972 film) in which a hired gun makes his hits look like accidents is a perfect fit for Statham’s talents. Paired up with hothead trainee Ben Foster, Statham radiates the cool this kind of character must exhibit.Rescued from development hell after more than 20 years, Statham and a global-friendly cast that included Li Bingbing, Cliff Curtis, and Rainn Wilson helped The Meg gross more than $500 million at the box office, setting the stage for the impending sequel arriving in August 2023, Meg 2: The Trench.
What are Jason clothes?
Comfy USA’s new line JASON unites the graceful twists and pleats of contemporary tailoring with chic, comfortable, breathable microfiber fabrics.
On paper, it doesn’t seem as if a Statham–Jennifer Lopez pairing would work, especially in a hard-boiled film noir. But one of the charms of this adaptation of the Donald Westlake long-running book character (previously done in 1967’s Point Blank and 1999’s Payback) is the interplay between Statham’s crafty thief and Lopez’s in-over-her-head real estate agent/co-conspirator.
Crank has often been compared to a live-action cartoon, and Brian Taylor’s and Mark Neveldine’s kinetic directing style, combined with Statham’s wild energy, gives the film a frenetic pace from the opening scene. Chev Chelios came back for Crank: High Voltage (2009), but that sequel was a little too extra for our taste.
Statham’s ex-cop/black operative/cage fighter Luke Wright is on the verge of suicide when he sees a young girl being terrorized by goons. He steps in to rescue her, only to discover she’s a math prodigy who has the very long combination to a very valuable safe memorized. The pair then embark on a harrowing adventure with Luke slowly turning into the most bizarre father figure ever.
For 88 tight minutes, Statham does some driving that would make the Fast and Furious gang blush, beats up an array of Eurotrash bad guys, defeats the top henchwoman with a wine rack, makes several awful/awesome puns, and still looks cool in his Transporter-approved suit. Oh, and did you know that Statham’s cameo in Collateral (2004) is rumored to be Frank Martin?Statham puts his aquatic acumen to good use in this high-gloss creature feature about a giant shark that escapes from a deep-sea trench. It’s a classic gruff hero role for Statham, but he breaks it up by showcasing some impressive diving techniques as he battles the titular beast. Plus, how can you argue with our guy going one-on-one against an ancient great white?
It took 16 years for Guy Richie and Statham to collaborate again, but their fourth outing together is a crackling, brutal thriller that spares no punches and showcases Ritchie’s talents as a stylist. Playing with time and our perception of Statham, this remake of the 2004 French film Cash Truck was a welcome return to the crime world for both men.
Statham plays H, the mysterious new (and awesomely skilled) driver for an armored truck company. We know everything isn’t as it seems and over the course of the film — split into several interlocking stories — we find out the truth. Statham is pure intensity for most of the film, his rage (or wrath?) barely bubbling under the surface. It’s a dark, nasty flick, and it works.Statham’s light touch was on full display during The Fate of the Furious’ best scene, a Busby Berkeley-inspired set piece on an airplane in which Shaw must fight off goons while also keeping Dominic Toretto’s (Vin Diesel) newborn baby safe from harm. Statham proved to be so popular, he soon earned the spin-off film Hobbs & Shaw alongside the Rock.
Was Jason Statham in the military?
Jason was a known national athlete and ranked 12th in England. Once he graduated from high school, he enlisted to the Army but discovered that that was not his way. Then, he quit the Armed Forces to devote himself to martial arts, another of his passions since he was a child.
Yeah, Parker is the kind of character Statham can do in his sleep, but under the stylish direction of Taylor Hackford, the movie is filled with great supporting characters, a bright and sunny vibe rarely found in crime flicks, and some laughs amid the shootouts. Plus, you get the great visual of Stath in a Stetson, attempting a Southern accent.
You know how good you must be to steal the show from a megastar like Brad Pitt doing an inscrutable accent? Well, Statham does just that in Snatch, Guy Ritchie’s ultra-British crime caper, filled with an array of colorful gangsters and an overall vibe that feels a lot like Lock, Stock, only with a little more wattage.
Summer is coming to an end and teachers from all over the country are preparing for the school year with welcome poster designing, course planning and classroom decorating.There are many Hindu religious festivals around the world. Festivals usually celebrate events in Hindu mythology, usually in line with seasonal changes. In the opening of the film, Jason wears a red plaid button shirt and grey jeans. In the rest/majority of the film, Jason wears dark blue jean denim overalls with a blue plaid button shirt with 2 buttoned flap pockets, black worker-style boots, and uses a burlap/potato sack with a single eye-hole cut on his left side. In appearance, Jason looks like very redneck or hillbilly, with hazel eyes, yellowish deformed teeth, long reddish-brown hair, a rustic beard and several bloated skull deformities on the right side of his face. Jason wears a dark green work shirt with 2 buttoned flap pockets, weathered tan color work pants, black work boots, yellow leather gloves and a 1940s U.S. Marines utility belt. Typically used to carry a machete, throwing darts, firearm reloads, survival knife and other equipment. His signature hockey mask has only one dark chevron on the forehead, pointing downwards, and also an axe mark on the top left. Jason’s flesh is rotted, full of worms, maggots, nose cavity (since he no longer has a nose) and the axe mark scar (from Part 3) on his forehead. This is also his first appearance as a zombie.
Jason Voorhees appears only briefly at the end of this film. When he grabs Alice, he is shirtless but wears black swimming shorts/trunks and has green mucky water weed covering his whole body. The top part of his head is very bloated due to his hydrocephalic condition.In this film, Jason wears visibly tattered tan jacket with a grey/teal shirt and pants, and black leather fingerless gloves. Upon becoming Uber Jason, he now sports a black bodysuit that exposes his cybernetic body on the right half of his chest and right arm, his left leg is similarly exposed. His hockey mask is now one solid piece that fully wraps around his head, only showing strips of skin. Jason’s eyes are now a hellish red and orange combination, and both eyes, for the first time, are the same shape and position as the other.Jason’s appearance in this film was short-lived. Jason appears at the beginning when Tommy watches the two graverobbers, Neil and Les, digging up Jason’s grave only to be both killed by him shortly after. Then, Jason appears at the end through grown-up Tommy’s dreams. The features of Tommy’s Delusion Jason Voorhees is nearly the same as he appeared in the very latest part of The Final Chapter with only very slight changes, such as his finger nails appearing normal and not dirty and long as it was in part 4, and the mortal wound he sustained on the left side of his head and eye inflicted by Tommy with Rob’s machete as it appears freshly bleeding appearing as it very recently was cleaved, and the mask strap on the right side of Jason’s seemingly repaired unlike it was in the last film due to Trish swinging the same machete used to kill Jason at him but only managing to remove his mask by accidentally cutting the strap and finally his deformed ear on the right side of his head being more noticeably pronounced than it was last movie. Through the rest of the film, paramedic Roy Burns is dressed as Jason. Roy wears a full-body green boiler suit similiar to Michael Myers’ suit with 2 chest buttoned flap pockets, black work boots and a goalie mask similar to Jason’s – except it has only 2 blue triangular chevrons on both cheeks, pointing towards the mouth area.
Jason now wears a blue-gray boiler suit with 2 chest buttoned flap pockets and several random rips and tatters, old black work/security boots and a vertical-buckled work belt. The mask is completely deformed due to the countless damage it has taken throughout the series, it has only the arrowhead chevron on its forehead, in a very dark red color, and is permanently molded onto his head, though it got pulled off his face when he gets dragged to Hell. Not much else is known of Jason’s physical appearance (save for his extremely malformed hands) because his face is never seen at all in this movie. However, the Friday The 13th game shows that his head is extremely bloated and most of his face is gone, and skeletal with one of his eyes gone and his mouth area still retaining damage just like the previous few films
Jason wears the same clothing as Part 3, but the mask has 2 visible differences: the axe cut at its top left (made by Chris Higgins near the end of Part 3) is more visibly bloodied and the paint job of the chevrons is very peeled off paint – the left half of the top arrowhead chevron and later in the movie, both “lower” chevrons, making these barely visible. Jason’s face is different from the previous film, with some more disform, wrinkly, blood-stained, his skin has a pale grey tonality, huge black fingernails and his mouth is partially bent to the right side with some malformed teeth pronging out of it. The back of his head also includes some stray brownish red hair making his visage an almost grown up version of the child in Part I. This is also his last appearance as a human.Jason wears extremely worn out and tattered Vietnam-era military dark olive drab green shirt with 2 buttoned flap pockets, with its matching dark military olive drab pants and very untreated black security boots. He also sports around his neck a long, rusted part of the thick chain used by Tommy Jarvis to pin him to a boulder at the bottom of the lake at the end of the previous film. His flesh now is so rotted away that even his bones and spinal cord are clearly visible. The hockey mask has an axe cut on the top left, a huge broken off part on the bottom left side (made from the boat propeller used by Megan Garris at the end of Part 6), partially showing that side of his mouth, and a single worn out dark chevron on the forehead, pointing downwards. In this film, Jason wears a rotten and tattered brown jacket made of burlap, a grey sweatshirt and a navy blue undershirt. Along with black platform boots with laces, black leather gloves, dark brown pants all having visible tatters and rips, and his famous hockey mask similar to part 3 he also has dark grey skin and strands of grey hair on the side of his head. In this film, Jason wears a Big Mac-styled dark olive green worker shirt with long sleeves and 2 pockets (the left one is a buttoned flap pocket while the right one is a simple buttoned patch pocket), a white sweatshirt underneath, a black leather belt, silvery-grey cargo work pants, black security boots/shoes and his trademark hockey mask on with the 3 Detroit Red Wings signs (taken from Shelly) – oddly, at the very end of the movie, when he is laying “dead” in the barn and the police arrive, Jason’s grey cargo work pants are replaced by regular light blue jeans pants with a blood smear on its right knee (Chris Higgins had previously stabbed Jason’s knee with a knife). During Chris’s flashback of when Jason attacked her two years prior, the killer is clearly unmasked but already wears his newly-acquired clothing (possibly due to a continuity error in the script). Physically, Jason is now ogre-like, bald with some facial and skull deformities – essentially, is now an “adult version” of his child self from the first movie.Jason wears the same dark clothes presented in Part VII – not as tattered and ruined as they were before, but still very old and worn out – with addition of black leather gloves. The mask is of a circular shape, yellowish color tone, complete with a custom-made axe cut on its top left corner, a system based on “D”-shaped ringlets to connect the elastic straps and 3 red chevrons, though the 2 lower ones are much thinner and “inverted” to point towards the eye-holes. His flesh and skin are grayish-white in color and very slimy and moldy due to his long years imprisoned underwater, and his face now resembles a malformed scarecrow.
In the Reboot, Jason first wore his bandage mask/burlap sack with one eye-hole in its left side (same as in Part 2), an intimidating jacket in a very dark blue color (constructed by Jason himself by cutting off the top part of a hunting coat and sewing it over the top of a military coat) with a very worn light brown t-shirt underneath, worn out dark grey work pants and brown boots. He is once again bald (with dirty-blonde longish hair projecting backwards), skull deformities similar to his Part 2 appearance, somewhat lean or overweight build, his right eye is grayed over (possible blindness due to severe cataract) and his malformed lips in cleft palate completely expose his deformed gums and teeth. The hockey mask, which he finds inside a crate in the barn at the middle of the movie, is very similar to the one seen in Part 3, with a creamy/beige color tone and some scratches at its faceplate.
Of course it wouldn’t be Statham without a bit of masculine confidence about the air. Throw in a pair of squared aviator glasses and you have Jason Statham 2.0 – the red carpet edition.Luckily for most of us, Statham kept the inner-brawler at bay for his latest appearance at ‘The Meg’ premiere in Hollywood. Statham executed his wardrobe on a conservatively cool tangent thanks to a classic navy suit paired to a white golf collar shirt (rounded edg
es). The look was polished off with a tonal grey striped tie, black lace-up shoes and a very elegant collar pin.
The 51-year-old actor has recently been showing off his style chops on the red carpet with a series of looks which perfectly suits his on-screen persona: Strong and classy restraint with a touch of ‘unhinge’ should you ever piss him off.
The yeehaw Statham: In the world of country music, electric horsemen and rhinestone cowboys have been replaced by dressed-down, gritty Stathams such as Dierks Bentley and Brad Paisley. Charles Esten’s character on sadly departed Nashville—Deacon Claybourne is the heart and soul of the show—is Statham-central.Adopting the Statham look—the tribe is named, by moi, after Jason Statham, the charismatically grunty British star of numerous violent movies—is easy and inexpensive. In Statham world, nothing is fancy or elitist. Statham-ing is, however, not without its complications. Others will draw conclusions based on your appearance. Stathams are frequently mistaken for ruthless sex traffickers or Moldovan hit men. The Statham de coiffure: With nary a thought for the obvious irony of dressing like a killer while attaching hair extensions, both straight and gay hairdressers are devotees of the Statham look. How to tell them apart? Gay hairdresser Stathams tend to have bigger muscles than straight hairdresser Stathams. Now back to the demographic. The Statham look is, as I will demonstrate, misleading to the point of madness. Stathams work within a broad range of professions, none of which involve raping, pillaging, or garotting. He is, in many cases, a Sheila in wolf’s clothing. Here are a few of the most prominent Statham vocations: Before we probe deeper into the Statham profile, let’s zero in on the style components. The Statham look is tough, edgy, and screams “rough trade.” There is a whiff of sadism in those rugged Rag and Bone jeans and those artfully scuffed Viberg work boots. John Varvatos and Denim and Supply (the Ralph Lauren offshoot) are go-to designers for the Statham. The Statham owns stacks of James Perse T-shirts. If it’s chilly, then V-necked sweaters will be worn—à la Simon Cowell, but minus the moobs—over rock-hard chests. U.S. Navy aviators are the Statham’s one adornment. Navy and black are the Statham colors. Jacket? The Statham would never wear a biker jacket. Too costume-y. For the Statham, it’s more about a stormproof, waxed-cotton, Belstaff motocross-inspired Citimaster or Roadmaster. The pampered Hollywood thespian Statham: Dorothy Parker said, “Scratch an actor and you’ll find an actress.” I say, “Scratch a Statham and you’ll find an actor who uses eye cream.” From Brad Pitt—he helped author the look—to Ryan Reynolds and Ryan Gosling, the hypermasculine Statham look is hugely popular with butch A-listers, especially when popping out to pick up a latte or girly pressed-juice concoction.Other devotees: The 1 percenters. Damian Lewis’ character on the Showtime series Billions is costumed to Statham perfection. Wall Streeters may dress like Prepsters or even Perverse Prepsters on their way up, but once they reach the top, it’s on with the work boots and the cotton-jersey hoodies. Regarding Jason Statham himself: If you have not sampled his oeuvre, you are in for a treat. I recently watched Crank 2: High Voltage. It is a delightmare that involves Statham applying jumper cables to his nipples and tongue. This coming August, Statham fans will be tucking into Mechanic: Resurrection, in which Statham resumes the role of Arthur Bishop, wears lots of dark clothes, and kills loads more people in horrible ways that look like accidents. Statham’s next role? He should play James Bond. It’s high time a working-class lad—a baldy Bond—was given a chance to deconstruct the martini-drinking toff. Why do A-listers, blokes who could presumably afford to buy the most outré designer fashion, prefer the Statham look? The answer is simple enough: High-profile dudes in a range of professions—we are talking everyone from David Beckham to Mr. Statham himself—opt for the Statham look because it is unimpeachable and hater-immune. The tough-guy simplicity of the Statham look provides an iron dome of social media protection to those who might otherwise be subject to endless critical bombardment.Statham takeaways: The most important Statham accessory is a car, preferably a banged-up, scratched-up ’80s Porsche, a growling vintage Jaguar XJS, or an obscure Lancia. And the interior must be ravaged, soiled, and patina’d to within an inch of its life. The Statham look is dirty. It’s clean dirt, but it’s dirt nonetheless.Shaved head? CrossFit body? Wall-to-wall tattoos? Dirty, slouchy denims? If this describes the fantasy you—or the super-butch alter-ego that lives inside your head—then you might well be a candidate for the Statham tribe.If you’re not willing to pay top banana for a beanie, then this Love Cashmere beanie is available for 50 sheets from Amazon. It’s also in charcoal which is a closer look to the one that Statham wears in the film. He also wears beanies in his personal life so it would be a good staple for your wardrobe.
With regards to the clothes, the Costume Designer credit on IMDB is split between Ann Roth and Michelle Matland. I have reached out to a couple of people on the costume team on Instagram but no reply, which is totally fine and expected. I’ll update here if I get anything back. Before we get to the Pinstripe jacket, here are some other pieces worn by Statham in the movie.
Jason Statham wears a Belstaff jacket in the early scenes before he is captured by the Russian mafia. It looks to be a black leather racer jacket without the ribbing on the shoulders. It has the angled zip pocket on the breast. There is not much sheen to this jacket so it’s a very matted leather. The logo on the left sleeve (as you wear it) crops up in an earlier scene in the hospital. You can shop through the Belstaff site, House of Fraser or Amazon. Statham wears Belstaff jackets in other films such as Blitz and The Expendables. Safe is what film critic Mark Kermode would describe as ‘slot A in tab B’ type stuff. It has moments of decent action although entirely formulaic. Which is in no way a bad thing when it comes to Jason Statham movies. The character Luke Wright is embroiled in a half protection, half revenge plot with the Chinese and Russian mafia, with political and old school corrupt FBI adversary’s thrown in for good measure. And that all works just fine. Boyds’ third floor is a comprehensive presentation for tailored clothing, offering anywhere from 1,000 – 2,000 suits and sport jackets from brands such as Trussini, Canali, Ermenegildo Zegna, ISAIA, TOM FORD, and Brioni. Boyds’ top floor is reserved for its 35-person tailor shop, which is the largest tailor shop in the United States.He also pairs this with a pair of grey flannel trousers. I prefer this look to an all-over pinstripe suit as it’s more versatile. Daniel Craig also wore a pinstripe suit jacket in Layer Cake but wore it with jeans which looks a bit dated now.
Why is Jason Statham so rich?
It is estimated that the net worth of Jason Statham is around $100 million But some sources say it could be as high as $500 million. He gets paid around $20 million to $25 million per movie. His movies have generated over $1.5 billion in ticket sales, making him one of Hollywood’s most bankable stars so far.
The beanie is actually the only thing that looks to be worth any considerable luxury. I have a beanie that’s not too dissimilar from the one Statham wears for the first third of the film. (Although mine is navy and Statham’s character is charcoal, grey and teal depending on the light).The Cashmere Hat from the N.Peal 007 Collection is not a frugal alternative, but it’s important that if you’re bald like Jason and myself, to have a soft wool that will cause itchiness.If you’re after the drifter look, then you could probably get a grey tracksuit on Amazon for under 20 sheets. Jason also wears grey hoodies in his personal life. Although he only wears the top with a beaten sweat shirt and tee underneath. The trousers are white painted and crap covered cargo pants.
I’ve had no joy in finding any of the trainers Statham wears throughout. Though he looks to have two separate pairs, the ones he gives to his fellow drifter have a red, blue and grey sole. The others he wears throughout look to be a Converse Chuck 70 with a blue logo tab on the back. (Just guessing). Safe is available to buy on Blu Ray. If you’re in the market for some bespoke Jason Statham pencil art drawn by me (above) and thrown through a couple of crazy filters, then check out our Redbubble page. The worsted wool single breasted pinstripe suit jacket looks to me very well tailored to Statham’s muscular physique. The sleeve length is perfect, with four buttons on the cuff showing an inch of the rounded shirt cuff. The shoulders are soft with a touch of padding. The lapels are medium width with the gorge relatively high. It has a barchetta breast pocket, straight flap pockets on the skirt with double vents. You can find these readily available as it’s a staple that most designers will offer. The one I have found as an alternative is by Farah from the Lyst website for 80 sheets.Statham transforms from homeless drifter that happens to know martial arts, into suited assassin/protector by visiting Boyds store in Philadelphia. A legendary department store in Philadelphia that has been going since 1938. A short excerpt from Everybody Wiki on Boyds will describe it best,And the boxer shorts. These feel like very classic shorts for Statham. They are again a sky/powder blue cotton short with a small vent on the hem. I’ve found some with a vent over at Hamilton & Hare. You can find those also on Chiltern St if you’re in London.
I wonder sometimes if the Hamilton business development team gets placement for their watches with the producers, and then the Director makes changes when shooting. In The Avengers (Assemble), The Hamilton khaki automatic 38 mm is credited as being Steve Rogers’ watch, when in fact it is worn by Dr. Erik Selvig. Tony stark is credited with wearing a titanium version, which would be totally out of character. There is exactly one shot of Robert Downey Jr. wearing it, with the watch on the inside of his wrist, so all that is visible is the bracelet and the clasp.
Not too dissimilar to the Orlebar Brown one that James Bond wears in Spectre. My friend John from Iconic Alternatives has done some decent research on this so I’ll refer to his blog here.Continuing on from my first post on Jason Statham in Wrath of Man, I wanted to look at some alternatives for some of the casual looks of Frank Martin in Transporter 3. I couldn’t get hold of anyone within the costume department, the costume designer is Olivier Bériot. I have reached out to the director Olivier Megaton so let’s see what comes back.
In the latter scenes he wears a short sleeve pink linen chambray shirt with tortoise shell buttons. There is no chest pocket. It’s a very casual shirt as he wears it untucked. But what’s important is the collar.
I’m less interested in the suits, although the action sequences are fantastic. In the first The Transporter movie apparently according to Boss Hunting, Giorgio Armani provided Statham with his work suit, shirt and tie. The article says,During the opening scenes he is wearing a Twin Tipped Fred Perry Shirt, designed in fine cotton piqué with a smart collar stand and bright twin tipping. The exact one from the film is a grey marl with white and black twin tipped collar and cuffs and is no longer available.
“I took the liberty of bringing your suits, it’s what you wear when you’re working correct?” Says the bad guy. Well lets look at what Statham wears when he is not working. And there are only a few pieces. The end credits list Ermenegildo Zegna, Brooks Brothers and Christian Dior amongst some of the ateliers. And Hamilton as the watch supplier, although an article by What Kind of Watch says that he wears a Panerai in all 3. Update* since posting about this on Instagram, many people in the community were quick to highlight the watch he wears is a Panerai Luminor Chrono. Rhett Redelings suggests,You can spend up to a small fortune on cufflinks. However, for the sake of brevity, and as we’re not doing identical brand matches, I’ve found a pair on Amazon that are similar for ten sheets. (Click image).
Frank Martin wears a bucket hat made of a waxed olive cotton with a matte finish. Barbour have done some similar. You can also pick them up readily unbranded on Amazon. The cargo pants are also perfect fishing attire and you can pick these up for next to nothing on Amazon. I’m personally not a fan of bucket hats, but it’s perfectly fine fishing attire.
The cufflinks Frank Martin wears with his white fighting shirt are black circular ones with a pin of silver in the middle. He doesn’t rip his shirt off in the fight sequence unlike the other one in the mechanic shop.
It does stand up so it’s not a truly relaxed shirt like the camp collar one I have from Mason & Sons. At the time of writing I have found one on Mr Porter from Onia that is half price. Although you will need to get your tailor to put on some tortoise shell buttons.Of course they border on farcical but they are so much fun. The ridiculous weaponising of the shirts and jackets mid-fight inform the audience that we’re not here for a gritty character study. And thank God. Even Statham has confessed in interviews that he likes to play to his strengths.
The only other scene we see where Frank Martin is not wearing a suit is when he is relaxing at home, moments before a car comes crashing though his house. He is wearing a sky blue linen shirt with a chest pocket.
Comfy USA’s new line JASON unites the graceful twists and pleats of contemporary tailoring with chic, comfortable, breathable microfiber fabrics. Merging these two elements, JASON delivers a supremely fashionable, functional line of contemporary clothing for the modern women.As a way to broaden his repertoire, he also interpreted darker roles, such as the psychopath of “Kalifornia” (1993), directed by Dominic Sena. In “Legends of Passion” (1994), directed by Edward Zwick, he repeated the pattern of “The River of Life” to some extent. In it, he plays Tristan Ludlow, a restless young man who enlists in the army to fight in World War I, escaping from a thwarted love with Julia Ormond and following the example of his father, a retired former cavalry colonel. Then he was in “Interview with the Vampire” (1994), an adaptation of the mythical novel written by Anne Rice in 1977.
Later, in 1993, DiCaprio played the mentally disabled younger brother of Johnny Depp in “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape.” The film’s director, Lasse Hallström, admitted that he initially sought a less attractive actor, but he decided on DiCaprio because he had become “the most observant actor” among all who auditioned. The film was a great financial and critical success, resulting in Leonardo being highly praised for his performance, which led to him being awarded the National Board of Review for Best Supporting Actor and nominated for an Academy Award and a Golden Globe. Subsequently, he had roles in films such as “The Quick and the Dead” (1995) and was one of the leads in “Romeo + Juliet” (1996).
Soon after, Jason would be hired to be a model for the French Connection brand. At that moment, he was in a relationship with Kelly Brook, who was a model, actress, swimsuit designer and English television hostess. The relationship will ended by Kelly due to problems related to long hours away from home.
His successful acting development allowed him to work in The Italian Job (2003) and Collateral (2004), appeared in Crank (2006), War (2007), The Bank Job (2008), Death Race (2008), Crank: High Voltage (2009), The Mechanic (2011), Blitz (2011), The Killer Elite (2011), Parker (2013), Fast & Furious 6 (2013), Furious 7 (2015) and Mechanic: Resurrection (2016) among others. As of 2010, he had a relationship with the English model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, best known for her work with the brands as Victoria’s Secret and Burberry, occasionally as an actress.Leonardo Wilhelm DiCaprio is a renowned actor and film producer who has won numerous awards within the film industry. He was born on November 11, 1974, in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California, United States.
From 2011 to 2016, he had significant roles in commercial films. But he made an impact with “Allied,” a World War II melodrama directed by Robert Zemeckis, which he starred in alongside Marion Cotillard. At that time, the actor had ended his relationship with Angelina Jolie. In 2017, he starred in the film “War Machine,” where he played the role of United States Army General Glen McMahon.
Regarding his personal life, Ryan Reynolds was in a romantic relationship with singer Alanis Morissette from 2002 to 2007. The couple got engaged in 2004, but in July 2006, People magazine reported that they had separated, although neither of them officially confirmed the news. Shortly after, in February 2007, they decided to end their engagement by mutual agreement. In May 2008, Reynolds announced his engagement to actress Scarlett Johansson, and they got married on September 27 of the same year. However, in December 2010, the couple announced in a statement to People magazine that they had decided to end their marriage.
Throughout his career, Denzel Washington has participated in commercial films, such as some in the action genre directed by Tony Scott. However, despite the changes in the world of cinema and the turn of the century, Denzel has remained one of the most highly regarded actors, characterized by his interpretive ability. Among his recent films, we highlight:Garfield gained popularity in 2010, thanks to his role as Eduardo Saverin in “The Social Network,” a film about the creation of Facebook by Mark Zuckerberg (played by Jesse Eisenberg). He also acted in “Never Let Me Go” (2010) with Keira Knightley. In 2012, Andrew first portrayed Peter Parker in the new saga, “The Amazing Spider-Man,” sharing credits with Emma Stone, who would play Mary Jane this time. He repeated his role in 2014 in “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.”
What watch does Jason Statham wear in Transporter 2?
Panerai Luminor Chrono Daylight Jason Statham, as Frank Martin, wears a Panerai Luminor Chrono Daylight in the movie The Transporter 2.
So, on September 9, 2012, he married the actress Blake Lively in Mount Pleasant, South Carolina. In October 2014, they announced that they were expecting their first child, and in December of that same year, Ryan Reynolds and his wife Blake Lively became parents with the birth of their daughter: Ines. Later, on April 14, 2016, his wife’s second pregnancy was confirmed, and on September 30, 2016, he became a father for the second time to a boy named James.
In 1990, he made his true television debut when he was cast to be a part of the “Parenthood” ensemble, a series based on the film of the same name. He then landed minor roles in several series, including “The New Lassie” and “Roseanne,” as well as a brief part in “Santa Barbara.” His work in “Parenthood” and “Santa Barbara” earned him a nomination for the Young Artist Award for Best Young Actor. His big screen debut came in 1991 with the science fiction and horror movie “Critters.” Later on, he became a recurring member of the cast of the ABC sitcom “Growing Pains,” playing Luke Brower. However, DiCaprio didn’t achieve success in the film industry until 1992, when he was selected by Robert De Niro from among 400 young actors for the lead role in “This Boy’s Life,” which also starred Ellen Barkin and De Niro himself. Once he graduated from high school, he enlisted to the Army but discovered that that was not his way. Then, he quit the Armed Forces to devote himself to martial arts, another of his passions since he was a child. What he learned with this discipline would help him in his future participation in action films. He was named Leonardo because, while his pregnant mother was looking closely at a painting by the great artist Leonardo da Vinci in a museum, DiCaprio gave a strong kick inside her belly. His parents divorced when he was only one year old, and they shared custody of Leonardo until 1997.
He studied in his hometown of Vancouver until 1994 when he decided to join a theater group as an extracurricular activity while attending Kwantlen College. However, his passion for acting became a vocation, and Ryan dropped out of college to devote all his time and energy to his acting career.
He was nominated for an Academy Award for his role in “Twelve Monkeys” (1995) directed by former Monty Python member Terry Gilliam. The film tells the story of Bruce Willis’s time-traveling journey to save humanity from the attack of the “Twelve Monkeys,” an eco-terrorist group. Brad Pitt received a well-deserved nomination for Best Supporting Actor. A year later, he appeared in “Sleepers” (1996), directed by Barry Levinson. He was privileged to share scenes with great actors such as Robert De Niro, Dustin Hoffman, and the Italian Vittorio Gassman. Pitt played Michael Sullivan, the assistant district attorney who had to accuse two of his friends of murder. Unfortunately, the film did not meet expectations and is not among Pitt’s best works, like “The Devil’s Own” (1997).To make money for a living, he would go to the fake auctions, and sell perfumes and fake jewelry in the street. At the same time, he would engage with street acting performances which were very appreciated by the people.
