VIDEO: Jason Statham Annihilated Jimmy Fallon in a Giant Hamster Ball Race on ‘The Tonight Show’

Jason Marshall / August 16, 2014

Forget promoting The Expendables 3, Jason Statham had one mission during his sit-down with Jimmy Fallon and it was to prove that he’s every bit the athlete that the world expects him to be.

…and by athlete, we mean he’s apparently really good at running a race while stuck inside a gigantic hamster ball.

During his appearance on The Tonight Show, Jimmy dared Jason to the challenge of a race down the plaza in Rockefeller Center. The catch, of course, was having to do it in the contraption that most of us associate with county fairs and family vacations.

Jimmy never really had a chance, as Jason was basically a ninja from the start — even getting into his ball a hell of a lot more gracefully than the talk show host.

And don’t forget, if you’re thirsty for Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger lost in a sea of even more aging action stars, The Expendables 3 is at the movies right now.
