We all know action hero Jason Statham can kick ass and take names, but did you know that he spent his youth in a speedo? Or the name of his character in 2001’s Ghosts of Mars?
Don’t sweat it: Statham’s “Homefront” co-stars James Franco and Kate Bosworth didn’t know that either.
MTV’s Josh Horowitz quizzed the stars of Gary Fleder’s druglord drama on “After Hours,” and it appears that Statham’s biggest fan might just be his pint-sized co-star Izabela Vidovic. Want proof? Just check out her hysterical imitation of the 46-year-old actor in the video.
In “Homefront,” based on Chuck Logan’s novel and adapted for the big screen by Sylvester Stallone, Statham plays dad and DEA agent Phil Broker, whose quiet family life is disrupted when he crosses paths with meth kingpin Gator, played by Franco. The action-thriller hits theaters on November 27, just in time for Thanksgiving.
London-native Statham may not be celebrating the American holiday, but he has plenty to be thankful for this year. The actor has a slew of high profile projects coming down the pipeline, with roles in “Heat,” opposite Sofia Vergara, “Fast & Furious 7,” “The Expendables 3″ and the Melissa McCarthy spy comedy “Susan Cooper.”
