Infographic: The Jason Statham Ass-Kick Count

254: The number of combined victims of "Redemption" star Jason Statham ass-kickings over his film career, as we've tallied and created visual representation for exclusively here on NextMovie.

BRIEF FAQ:

What constitutes an 'ass-kicking'? Glad you asked. It ranges from as harmless as "incapacitating a bad guy to question him" to as devastating as "stabbing a bad guy in the neck." (Stabbings were deemed allowable because Statham is usually doing something cool with his knives, like throwing them or spinning them in his hand for no reason.)

Do guns count? Of course not.

9 Actors Who Play the Same Character in Every Movie

Redemption Lionsgate

Hang in Hollywood long enough, and you're bound to be typecast every now and then.

But for some actors, playing to type isn't just laziness or the final tremors of a fading career. Keeping their characters close to home is just what they do best, or at least what keeps the money flowing. And anyway, would you really want to see Jason Statham falling head-over-heels for Katherine Heigl in some lame romantic comedy? Neither would we. Get More »

In an unedited interview with MTV News' Josh Horowitz, actor and professional ass-kicker Jason Statham discussed his upcoming projects ("Redemption", "Expendables 3"), potentially working with his dream directors (who doesn't love David Fincher?), and the last time he had a full head of hair ("1973, was it?").

However, what we're really interested in is Statham's post-credits appearance in this summer's "Fast & Furious 6", and what this means for the next installment of the franchise. Get More »

Jason Statham Is the Most Badass 'Hummingbird' Ever In New Trailer

There's been a lot of talk over the past year about the 99% and the 1% and all that, but if you think fiscal inequality is a new problem, just try telling that to Robin Hood. After all, the guy was stealing from the rich and giving to the poor back when wheels were square.

And now, thanks to Jason Statham, we have the latest version of the classic Robin Hood story, as the new YouTube trailer for "Hummingbird" shows the cinematic badass not just robbing from the rich but also smacking the hell out of them.

Jason Statham's Appeal With the Ladies: An Amateur Survey

Parker FilmDistrict

A Jason Statham movie has a few certainties: Jason will beat the crap out of some bad guys. Jason will shoot other bad guys, and they will die from their gunshot wounds. And Jason will seduce a young lady or two.

I'm confident that Mr. Statham can beat people up. He's probably good at shooting things and making things blow up, too. It was the last part that produced some skepticism in me, having never heard any female friend of mine gush about Jason Statham the way they had about, say, Channing Tatum or Matt Damon or Steve Zahn.

FilmDistrict

The first trailer for Statham's latest violence romp, "Parker," has just dropped. In addition to presenting the gun-toting, fierce zinger-ringing Statham we all know and love so well, he's also pulling a bit of a "Robin Hood" act in the feature ... with himself as the beneficiary, of course.
