List RulesVote up the jobs Jason Statham is most qualified to perform.

Jason Statham is probably the closest you'll find to a professional bad*ss. The British actor just exudes coolness, no matter what role he's playing - and he's played a lot of roles. Statham has quite the movie résumé, and that's not only a reference to his long list of credits. His characters have tons of experience in a wide variety of career fields, from driving services to the restaurant industry. In the last couple of decades, he's played a spy, a cop, a car salesman, a paleontologist, and people with a whole bunch of other random jobs.

Statham's onscreen résumé would blow the average person's out of the water, but he hasn't always been successful at every job he's tried. Sometimes he drops the ball like the rest of us, but there's no denying he's a committed employee. Which job do you think Jason Statham is most qualified to perform?
