Unlike some actors who feel the need to distance themselves from the action hero roles that made them famous by appearing in romantic comedies — we're looking at you, Gerard Butler — British tough-guy Jason Statham has never strayed very far from the roles that have been his bread and butter since first appearing as Bacon in Guy Ritchie's Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels. But, just because Statham has made a name for himself playing surly ass-kickers, that doesn't mean that his characters are all one-dimensional. Case in point: Statham is one of the few tough-guys in The Expendables 2 who actually has a love interest (Charisma Carpenter), which allowed him to reveal his tender side.
Statham recently sat down to discuss returning as "tender" Lee Christmas in the sequel to The Expendables with our very own Jeremy Parsons. An action movie aficionado as well as an action icon in his own right, Statham revealed that he is a "massive Bruce Lee fan" and that he could watch Enter the Dragon "ten times a day" and "never tire" of watching it. more about The Expendables 2 >> Posted 08.17.12 by BrentJS
