Jason Statham - Jason Statham: 'I've Already Raced Fast Star Paul Walker'

Action man Jason Statham insists he's the perfect choice to take on the speedy star of the Fast & The Furious movie franchise in the film series' seventh project - because he has already raced Paul Walker in real life.

Statham thrilled fans of the fast-paced film franchise when he appeared briefly at the end of Fast & Furious 6 as the series' new villain, Ian Shaw - and it appears he has been revving up for the role for some time.

The Transporter star says, "I've actually been racing with Paul at Willow Springs (raceway) in L.A., so we've sort of chased each other around the track before."

And he can't wait to get started on the next film and face off against Walker, Vin Diesel, Michelle Rodriguez and Dwayne Johnson: "They're all a good bunch. I've met many of them in passing on numerous occasions and they seem like a solid little crowd so I'm happy to be a part of that."
