TGB Episode 141: The Jason Statham Experience (Guest: Matt Singer)

January 24, 2013

Jason Statham

On this week's episode of The Golden Briefcase, Tim and Jeremy are joined by guest Matt Singer from IndieWire> and Filmspotting SVU to discuss their latest picks of the week, the newest in DVD & Blu-ray releases, new trailers for comic book sequel RED 2 and Antoine Fuqua's Olympus Has Fallen and much more. The main topic of the night was a discussion on famed action superstar Jason Statham, in honor of his new film Parker (watch the trailer) hitting theaters this weekend. The guys go over what makes Statham such a compelling action character and where they hope to see him in movies the next few years. Listen in!

The Golden Briefcase is also broadcast LIVE on Wednesday nights starting ~7:30PM PST. You can listen in via our Ustream page or by visiting our own live page right here on FS. The podcast is just as fun to listen to live while it's being recorded, with plenty of special guests, so I suggest you tune in the next time it records.

    You mentioned how action movie heroes are a dying breed. You should probably look into a new movement independent action filmmakers who make their action shorts and features. One of them is The Stunt People, a group based in San Francisco. They've got a YouTube page rising in popularity and have produced several feature films.
