a man for Monday

(Click to see a larger view. You'll thank me later.)
I recently discovered Jason Statham. He does his own stunts and seems to be part of the trend that is making real men sexy again.
(look - chest hair! hallelujah!)

His character in the Transporter movies - part Jackie Chan, part James Bond, part Mario Andretti - gives us some of the most outrageous movie stunts ever. (here's the top 10. I highly recommend watching scene #9. It's a really cool fight sequence and, hello! Jason's oiled up and shirtless!) There's a 3rd movie due out next year, so get ready to suspend your disbelief...it's a fun ride!

He's also in The Bank Job at your local megaplex. And in "Snatch", which is a wonderful flick (Brad Pitt, Benecio del Toro) on DVD. And check out the crewcut woman in the bookie-joint: "The sign says, 'All bets are off!'" Blam! Ah, good times.

Saved to my hard drive, labeled "beefcake-from-Breda."

Can we count on this every Monday?

Turk Turon said...

The Sunday Smith and the Monday Jones?

Well, I guess I'll just take my smooth, poorly defined chest and go home :(

Though not as actionpacked, I agree with Turk, "Snatch is Awesome" and "Revolver will keep you guessing. "Italian Job" remake isn't bad either...Understand he used to be a footballer, or soccer player, depending on where you park you car. Or was it Rugby?

Y'know, seriously, if I had a little more hair, I could pass for him...

You want hairy, find an Italian... Trust me on this one...

;)

He's also great (and hilarious) in Crank.

And there was me thinking you were above posting totty pics - I'm shocked :-)

Mr Stratham was also in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. Not so much bare chested hunkiness (London's too cold for that sort of thing), but a lot of dark, Brit humour.

By the way, Mr Turon, is The Bank Job any good?
