Statham's stellar stunts

Slide 1 of 11

Jason Statham is an action movie fan's dream and an insurance agent's nightmare. He's the macho, rough 'n' tumble star who kicks ass on screen and performs precarious stunts with gusto. Whether plummeting off of a high-rise building, tearing up the highway at fast speed or taking on gangs of armed thugs, he fearlessly throws himself into the fray. He can even turn his shirt, watermelon halves and a piano into effective weapons. A former member of the British national high diving team, Statham has become synonymous with visceral, no holds barred action that generally eschews CGI for an organic, realistic approach. Bing:Watch the trailer for 'Parker'In his new thrill ride "Parker," Statham plays the titular character, an experienced thief with principles (no stealing from poor people or harming innocent civilians) who helps an experienced crew pull of a state fair heist. But when his cohorts (lead by Michael Chiklis) try to bump him off for not agreeing to join them on their next gig, he seeks payback. It's not just about the cash he was cheated out of nor the murder attempt, it's the principle of the matter. Along the way, Parker also manages to piss off his associates' mob connections. Needless to say, there are plenty of flying fists and kicks and gunplay. As a desperate realtor who can be an asset in his quest for vengeance, Jennifer Lopez comes along for the heart-racing ride. With "Parker" about to rev up action fans everywhere, MSN spoke to Statham to discuss ten wild 'n' wooly stunts from his colorful career. Many are quite eye-popping.
