“All of the stunt men — these are the unsung heroes.” Jason Statham
We all know that Jason "The Transporter" Statham is bad ass mofo that does his own stunts. Statham is trying to convince the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to finally acknowledge stunt actors with their own Oscar category. “Nobody is giving them any credibility. They’re risking their necks. And then you’ve got poncy actors pretending like they’re doing [the stunts],” Statham said in an interview with Vanity Fair. I think he's referring to Arnold Schwarzenegger. You know Schwarzenegger isn't doing his own stunts in his latest film Sabotage
Statham has a point. Performing stunts is thankless job and you only get one shot to do it right. I already know the stunt actor that would win by a landslide. The award would have to go to Caitlin Heller for her twerking prank. Of course the internet has moved on and forgot about her, but not me. I'll never forget.
