  • Quotes

    • Jason: (on doing his own stunts) I don't want to do anything that involves big explosions or anything that can go wrong in the way of pyrotechnics. I like to be able to do something behind a wheel or a physical stunt, something that I am responsible for. I feel better if I made the mistake rather than anything mechanical being responsible.

    • Jason: It's something I never dreamed I'd be doing, making movies.

    • Jason: I've come from nowhere, and I'm not shy to go back.

    • Jason: You ain't ever gonna get an Academy Award for doing Crank and you certainly won't for doing all the other movies I've done.

    • Jason: (on being a director) I haven't got the capability or the patience. As a director, you need to be very good with people's personalities and be able to adapt to many situations. I've got my hands full trying to work out this acting stuff.

    • Jason: Guy Ritchie was looking for someone that had experience selling street corner merchandise-you know, jewelry and perfume-and I was the one that he was looking for, the authentic man for the job. So it was just being in the right place that Guy Ritchie was fortunate enough to give me my first ever acting gig. Then, again, he gave me another part in his next movie and then all of a sudden you've got a career kind of thing.

    • Jason: I feel like I know what I'm doing now and what it takes to make a good movie, so I feel more educated. I have a lot more knowledge on the whole process of how a movie gets made and the process of that.

    • Jason: If you got a good imagination, a lot of confidence and you kind of know what you are saying, then you might be able to do it. I know a lot of colorful characters at home that would make great actors.

    • Jason: My family's great, like a rock to me.

    • Jason: As a kid I wanted to be like a stunt man, throw myself around and kick myself up but I never kind of fulfilled that. I went years and years without even pursuing that any further and then a few years ago I had a chance to do it in [The Transporter].

    • Jason: The thing is that every time they write in a romantic part for me, there'd always this inability for me to be able to get it on with the women. I'll be honest, that's getting rather frustating!
