Guinness World Records announced today that actor Jason Statham has entered the record books for most times playing the exact same movie character. Statham set the record after once more playing his familiar role of the “likeable, bald badass,” in the new action film “Safe,” which opens tomorrow.
According to Guinness officials, Statham replaces Vince Vaughn, the previous record holder for his numerous times playing the “over confident, ad lib guy.”
Statham, who received his award today at the annual ceremony put on by Guinness, has starred as a likeable, bald badass in such films as “Transporter,” “Transporter 2,” “Transporter 3,” “Crank,” “Crank 2,” “The Expendables,” and the upcoming “The Expendables 2.”
During the awards luncheon Statham punched a man who set the record for “World’s Most Annoying Laugh,” which made the bald badass even more likeable to everyone else in the room.
“I am so grateful to be joining the esteemed ranks of such record holders as the most tattooed senior citizen, world’s heaviest pumpkin, and man with the world’s longest ear hair,” said Statham. “I expect to keep my record going for many years, as my agents have already lined up several dozen films where I get to keep playing the same character.”
