FAST & FURIOUS PRESENTS: HOBBS & SHAW

JASON STATHAM (Deckard Shaw/Produced by), an international star best known for his hard-hitting action films, most recently starred in the global box-office hit The Meg. He received a Critics' Choice Award nomination for his comedic turn in Paul Feig's comedy Spy, opposite Melissa McCarthy.

Born in England, Statham became a member of the British national diving team as one of its top divers, eventually placing 12th at the World Championships. While he trained at the famed Crystal Palace National Sports Centre in London, film crews and photographers pursued him as new talent.

Statham eventually met director Guy Ritchie who cast him in the role of Bacon in Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, the feature-film debut for both of them. Statham teamed up with Ritchie again for Snatch, in which he starred opposite Brad Pitt and Benicio Del Toro. French film impresario Luc Besson trusted Statham in the lead role of Frank Martin in The Transporter. Statham went on to star in the blockbuster remake of The Italian Job; Crank; Transporter 2 and Transporter 3; Roger Donaldson's The Bank Job; Death Race; Crank: High Voltage; Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables 1, 2 and 3; The Mechanic; The Mechanic: Resurrection; Blitz; Killer Elite; Boaz Yakin's Safe; Parker with Jennifer Lopez; Homefront; Wild Card; and Steven Knight's directorial debut Redemption. In 2015, he joined the highly successful The Fast and the Furious franchise as Deckard Shaw in Furious 7.
