Tom Pitney from TheVine.com.au had a chance to talk with Jason Statham about his role in “Spy” and here is an excerpt from the interview:
What was it that convinced you to take on a comedic role?
It wasn’t a calculated decision. I caught up with Paul Feig, meeting him and I love his movies. So I was intrigued to know what he was up to. He told me he was a big action movie fan and said he’d seen pretty much every movie I’ve done.
Which I found again, like really?! I had to scratch my head. He named Crank and he named all of my films. He said I really want to put you in the next movie I’m going to do. He’s so charming and he’s so talented that you could never say no to the man.
“Spy” will be out on DVD/Blu-ray in Australia on September 30, 2015.
