In this video:

Jason Statham, the stunningly handsome man you occasionally see glistening on the cover of Men’s Health or kicking The Rock in the face in the latest Fast and the Furious movie, is primarily known for two kinds of roles- action movies, where he uses his formidable athleticism to beat up dozens of nameless thugs, and comedy films, where he usually plays a wise-cracking hustler. These are two roles he’s basically trained for his entire life, seeing as before he was an actor, he was, amongst other things, a street hustler and a professional diver who came just one position away from making the Olympics not once, but three consecutive Olympiads.
