Jason Statham Interview: Hummingbird

Jason Statham has built a career on hard man, action-packed tough guy performances.

So it's refreshing to see him take on a distinctly different role in Hummingbird .

Playing a homeless ex-war veteran plagued by post-traumatic stress who assumes another man's identity and falls for a nun, Statham 'cranks' out some seriously dramatic chops.

We sat down with the star to talk about what attracted him to the role, working with Steven Knight (first time director, but writer of Eastern Promises ), and what fans can expect.
