Jason Statham — celebrity cockney shitkicker — is currently filming Parker for director Taylor Hackford (Ray) making Statham the fourth actor to take on the principled thief character from Donald Westlake’s pulp novels, including Lee Marvin, Chow Yun Fat and Mel Gibson. More importantly, as the above on-set photo illustrates, Statham will be wearing a cowboy hat (via ComingSoon).
Jason Statham. In a cowboy hat. How does he keep it on when he’s round-house kicking a guy in the jugular?
But how does he stack up some some of cinema’s other biggest stars in cowboy hats? That’s a rhetorical question. I don’t really care how he stacks up. It’s late, and I needed to run a post, Jason Statham was wearing a cowboy hat, suddenly I get Ben Affleck from Phantoms (yo!) on the brain, and now you get to look at photos of stars wearing cowboy hats.
You can thank me later.
