He is incredibly HOT.... till he opens his mouth. Saw him on Leno one night, what a idiot, he could not even put one sentence together. I was totally turned off at that point. But I will still watch his movies cause he is pretty.

|Statham's stellar stunts|
|With the release of 'Parker,' we check out 10 of Jason

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.

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
