Jason Statham forced into action roles

Jun 23 2013, 10:18am CDT | by

Jason Statham is forced out of interesting roles by typecasting.

The 45-year-old actor is known for his high-energy roles in action blockbusters like 'The Expendables' and while he wants to spread out, he knows people wouldn't pay to see him doing the more dramatic roles he desires.

He told the Guardian Guide magazine: ''You can't have a sushi restaurant and then put cheese on toast on the menu, because they'd go, 'why did you do that? We came here to eat sushi.'

''The dilemma is that you have to do something that people want to see.''

The 'Hummingbird' star admitted his best way to make money in the film industry is through the big, explosion-filled summer blockbusters rather than more challenging roles.

He added: ''So if you've got a story about a depressed doctor whose estranged wife doesn't wanna be with him nor more, and you put me in it, people aren't gonna put money on the table.

''Whereas if you go, 'All he does is get in the car, hit someone on the head, shoot someone in f***ing feet,' then, yep, they'll give you $20 million. You can't fault these people for wanting to make money.''

First trailer roars in for Furious 7: watch now

Nov 2 2014 8:33am CST | Source: Total Film

The first trailer for Furious 7 has exploded online in spectacular fashion, and it’s every bit as deliriously OTT as you could have hoped for… The new trailer kicks things off with a ludicrously fun action sequence in which Vin Diesel’s crew parachute some souped-up automobiles out of a plane, before taking down a heavily-armoured truck. Then we’re introduced to Jason Statham’s big bad, all snarled cockney threats and villainous sw ...

The glorious franchise returns this coming April. Read the full article on AICN Nordling here. The next film in the FAST AND FURIOUS franchise, FURIOUS 7 (eventually, will we just end up getting the letter F as a title?) opens next year.  And though we tragically lost Paul Walker, he seems to be playing a substantial role in this one, based on the new trailer.  The team looks to be back, and we get villain Jason Statham added to the mix.  And Kurt Russell? ...
